I am so happy to have Elmer!  It was a fabulous litter with multiple show prospects and I'm really anxious to watch Elmer and his littermates grow up.  Many are saddened that Elmer's daddy, Able, passed away so young.  (Click here to see Able's page.)

Elmer, named after my grandpa, is a very typy, well-balanced youngster with lovely a  headpiece, outstanding coat, fabulous rear, nice angles,  substance and strong topline.  And I fell in love with his personality ... very smart, very focused, sweet, gentle yet an avid retriever.  He's already a "therapy dog", visiting my dad's nursing home!  I am SO proud of Elmer for taking Winners Dog & Best of Winners at the TCLRC specialty at 15 months (8/22/08, his second day out), and we picked up his 2nd major on 6/19/09.  Thanks to respected judges Dr. J. Donald Jones and Edd Bivin.  In only 9 shows, Elmer has 4 majors and specialty  BOW and BBE wins,  so I think we have great things to come!  This has been quite a ride so far and I LOVE this boy!!!
