First Title for Stella

November 8, 2020 / Dana and Brendan Foley

Stella earned her WC retrieving title at the CRFCRC’s WC/WCX tests in November. She had the crowd behind her the whole day, and by a wing-and-a-prayer, she returned four ducks to the line with various side trips along the way! Looking forward to more field fun and achievement with this determined Timberblacs flat coat!

Remi Earns JH and WC

October 25, 2020 / Dana and Brendan Foley

Timberblacs Throwing Caution To The Wind, Remi, earned her JH and WC titles on October 25th and November 8th respectively. She worked very hard all summer to overcome her stubborness with land-water-land marks, and ended up running beautifully in her tests. It’s been a fun and rewarding experience learning with this girl. Now it’s on to senior hunter work!
