Sex: Dog

Zephyr was our meant-to-be dog. I had been asked if I was interested in a pup from his litter when the litter was born. We were dealing with Hurricane's cancer and we said not now. When the puppies would have been about 9 weeks, I start putting out the word we were interested in getting another Flat-Coat. Less than 48 hours later we were arranging to pick up Zephyr in a couple of weeks. He is everything we could have asked for. He is loving, silly, loves to retrieve and learn. He is laid back but still energetic. His enthusiasm for whatever I asked him to do has even got me to go back in the show ring, which I had vowed I would never do.

My first love when it came to dogs was Shetland Sheepdogs. But most of my friends had Flat-coated retrievers and the more I hung around with them, threw birds for them and went to 2 FC Nationals with a Sheltie, the more I saw the wisdom and the light of getting my very own FCR back in 2001. Breezy was my first and has shown me the ropes of owning a FCR. Over the years we have become fast best friends and enjoy doing obedience, agility, hanging out, and her favorite--field. She has also made me realize that I can have two first loves.
