Sire:- FTCH Denford Danny of Belvden
Dam:- FTAW Tina Arena (Kes)
Kennel Name:- Sophie
Sophie is a daughter of Kes’s from
her 2nd and final litter. Her sire is Denford Danny of Belvden a dog
we greatly admired for some time prior to using him on Kes and we are very
pleased with Sophie. A small but compact bitch, great style and drive , natural
hunter and retriever we regret not having campaigned her in trials, but she has
made a super and valued addition to Gary’s walked up and picking up team.
Sophie had one litter of pups in
2010 but we failed to keep one for ourselves for one reason or another, however
one daughter we have seen in results of working tests and awards in field trials and doing well, and had some
pleasing reports from some of the others.
Unfortunately in May 2013 Sophie collided with another of our dogs and sustained nerve damage to her neck. The vets had no prognosis for her but with determination, advice from good friends and lots of tlc she pulled through and is able to walk again, albeit not 100% as she crabs slightly and is a little un-coordinated at times the main thing is she’s happy, and can still come out hunting and picking up.
