18th May 2011 our Fieldtrial labrador "Squareclose Flo" has given birth to 10 pups. The father is  "Saxaphone John Smiths, Archie". Flo is a very well bred bitch who is very easy to handle and train. Her father is FTCH "Mediterian Blue" who entered the IGL Championships three times and he was also selected  a couple of times for the English team at the CLA Game Fair. We use Flo as picker up dog and she does an excellent job doing this. She is a good gamefinder for all the game which is left behind and she is a good retriever. She has been out with us the whole shooting season last year and she was a pleasure to have around. She is very steady and quiet. We used our own dog on her, simply because we like this dog a lot and it fits very well in combination with Flo. Archie is a very fast dog, a good retriever and we will compete with him coming year at WT's, cold game tests and our goal is to run him at Fieldtrials. He has this natural heelwork and is so easy to train and he is also very quiet. Both his father and mother are FTCH and FTW and his brother already won an All Aged Fieldtrial in England at the age of 1,5 years and ran in the Winning Team for England at Highclere 2011 at the age of just two years old. The litter  of Archie x Flo exists of 3 black bitches, 3 yellow bitches, 2 black dogs and 2 yellow dogs.

Of course both parents are tested on hips, elbows and eyes, clear/normal on prcd-PRA and myopathy and EIC.
