What to say about this gorgeous lady?!! My little Forrest Tinkerbell is a joy to have around and is really easy to live with.
She delighted me by qualifying for Crufts at her first show with 2nd in Minor Puppy and 1st in Puppy.
The win was a little bittersweet as I had lost Indy only 3 weeks before and felt sure he was cheering her on from the Rainbow Bridge.
Forrest was very consistant during her puppy classes, winning Puppy at Bath, Minor Puppy at URC, Minor Puppy, Puppy, Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Breed at National Gundog and Puppy Bitch at Darlington in 2008.
During her junior & yearling classes she remained consistant.In 2009 she won yearling at Blackpool and SKC.
She won at both the Flatcoated Retriever Society & the Flatcoated Retriever Club of Scotland Championship shows in 2010.
In 2011 she won Post Graduate at URC Champ show and followed it by winning Post Graduate at Bournemouth Champ Show.
Crufts qualified 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, winning her class in 2012 thus qualifying her for 2013!
Since becoming a veteran, Forrest has won numerous Veteran classes at Championship shows.
She was also Best Veteran in Show at both FCRS & NEFRA open shows in 2015.
Forrest gained her Stud Book Number at Windsor 2012
Forrest is rarely shown at open shows, but has four Best of Breeds to her credit.
Forrest's only litter was by ShCh Woodavens Water Soldier JW.
Now retired frm the show ring, she enjoys her time watching over her extended family from the comfort of the sofa.
Forrest was born on 20/11/07
