If love could have saved you,

You would have lived forever.


Our first flatcoat, our first Champion, magnificent beyond our wildest imaginations, driven retriever of tennis balls, swimmer extraordinaire,  lapdog to watch TV, bedtime companion.  He led us to conformation and field retrieving adventures with such joy and enthusiasm. Our special boy.

Loved with a Love beyond all feeling,

Missed with a Grief beyond all tears.

Paisley was the pup we kept from Sofie’s litter. She was a beautiful girl who did not like the show ring. She left us at age 7, far too young.
