Posh Dogs with Lynette Irwin logo A black flat coated Retriever  1 A pack of 9 black and 3 chocolate flat coated Retrievers

"My foundation bitch was Glidesdown Bumble from Bill and Wyn Garrod. She was a wonderful introduction to the breed, being happy to train and work and also gave me

plenty of success in the ring gaining a first at Crufts and a Reserve Challenge Certificate. She was mated to Casuarina Pohutukawa producing Bumblyn Dolly Varden who was foundation bitch for Jane and Brian Perring of Gadfly. She was then mated to CH Shargleam Kestrel producing Bumblyn Fancy Day. I now have five generations of Bumblyn bitches in my present dogs."
