River came to us from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, from the kennel Coastalight Flat-Coated Retrievers, in February 2005. She is smart and quick and lots of fun, loves to retrieve, and has become my great partner in the field. In September 2010 she became a Master Hunter, a goal held since Beau and I started in this game, but weren’t able to finish. Thank you, Beau, for helping us get here!

I love how quickly and easily she learns, her love of the game and her quiet and steady ways. She’s made us very proud!

Cosmo came to us in March 1999 as three-year-old at the height of his show and working career, a gift from his breeders, because we needed him. It seems right and natural that he has joined our family, as his mother was born here. 

From the time of his arrival, Cosmo blew me away with his incredible potential, his eagerness to please and willingness to work, and his focus. CDX in 3 straight trials . . . UD with placements and 2 *extra* legs . . . 18 field/hunt test passes . . . 20 agility trial passes . . . Hall of Fame . . . 3 National Specialty Working Dog class wins and 2 placements . . . National Specialty Veteran Sweeps class win and placements . . . numerous Best of Breed wins in very limited showing . . . Judge’s Award of Merit in Best of Breed at the 2004 National Specialty at the age of 9 years under Mrs. Brenda Phillips . . . followed by 3 Group placements at 9 to 10.5 years old . . . all while siring 10 beautiful and healthy litters to date.

Cosmo was a happy, gentle, loving soul– everything a flat-coat should be. These are traits that he passed on to his progeny.Click here to see Cosmo’s Kids!
