He was our first dog – he’s 9 years old now and we’ve had him since he was an 8 week old puppy.  He’s from a long line of field trial champions and his dad was an acclaimed retriever.  He’s an enthusiastic, friendly, affectionate and very loyal character. He loves long walks and is very strong – he walked (ran) up all of the Three Peaks carrying his own water and food in packs on his back.

He is an incredibly fast runner, even keeping up on marathon training runs.  He is also a very good retriever.
