2012


Can BIS Ch/Am GCh Fieldday Aston Martin (Flash) *** BEST IN SHOW *** Miramichi Kennel Club, N.B. The summum of a fantastic year that began with his becoming the first Fieldday dog with an Am Grand Championship title. What’s more, the few times he was shown in Canada gave him several group placements. Huge congrats to owner Hélène Beaupré-Picard!

ATChC Fieldday Mr. Incredible RAE AGN AGIJ CD TD (Findus) *** AGILITY TRIAL CHAMPION *** ExStBronze, ExJBronze, Bronze Awards of Merit. Nicole Haueisen and Findus have done it again! A summer dedicated to agility that started with winning the NB-PEI 2012 AAC Regionals in June and never stopped, accumulating title after title that took them to this most spectacular finish. 3 WOWS to Fieldday's coolest performance dog around and his incredible owner.

Ch Fieldday Boundin' CDX RA JH WC (Boone) ended the summer splendidly with two new titles.... a Rally Advance title and a CDX Obedience title. Could not be happier!

Ch Fieldday Dragonfly (Meadow) finished her American Champion on September 30th with another two majors, having taking two earlier in the spring. Meadow also finished her Canadian Championship in Iberville, taking a Group 3. Congratulations to owners Tina Mohr and Gwyneth McLellan!

Ch Fieldday First Star Dream CD RA (Star) started competing in March and passed two CD obedience trials on her first time out. In May, she succeeded her 3rd pass for her CD title as well as her Rally Novice title and in June, her Rally Advance title. Great going Star and owner Susan O'Marra for this fantastic start.

Can/Am Ch Fieldday On Your Mark WCI JH CD, CGN (Mieka) In June, Mieka passed the Canine Good Neighbour test organized by Patte Douce to raise funds for the local Equitherapy Centre. Tail wagging, she went through the exercises and with her missing eye (lost accidently) and advanced age (9-1/2 years), charmed the crowd who rewarded her with many hugs. Pixie and Boone also had fun doing the test.

Fieldday Marcus Aurelius NW2 (Marcus) is Mieka's littermate. At 9-1/2 years old, he earned his NW2 title. He is pictured doing the final search where he had to find 1 or 2 hides in each search area (interior, exterior, vehicle, and containers). Marcus loves Nosework and is looking forward to getting his NW3 title. Congratulations to owner Kris Estes and Marcus! Great work, great team!

At the 2011 FCRSC’s National Specialty held in Halifax, NS, from September 3-5, Findus was covered with rosettes and prizes. I had the pleasure of handling him in the Altered Class, which he won. He also received the Versatility Retriever Award from the FCRSC. Findus is truly a very special dog.

BISS Ch Matlaras Estella JH CD RN WC (Pixie) In July, Pixie added a Junior Hunter title to her name.

Afterwards, he took on a few American shows that gave him 3 majors towards his Am GCh. Bravo Flash and Hélène!


2010


Can BISS Ch Matlaras Estella CD RN WC (Pixie) 2010 was a great year for our Princess. It all started in early March at the New England Sporting Group Dog show, winning Best in Sweepstakes as well as Winner’s Bitch/Best of Winners for a 4-pt major. Soon after in Canada, she took Group 1st from the 12-18 month old class under Canadian breeder-judges Wendy Schira and Doug Windsor. Then off we went to the Regional and National specialties held in Calgary, Alberta, from July 28 to August 1, 2010.

Best in Specialty Show from the Open Class for Pixie at the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of Alberta Specialty, under UK judge Vivian Bowen. What a feeling! The next day at the West Westwinds Sporting Group Specialty, she took Best of Opposite Sex. At the National Specialty of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of Canada, Miss Pixie made the final cut under UK judge Jim Irvine and on the last day, succeeded her Working Certificate. Most thrilling all the way, she also did quite well in Obedience taking a 2nd place and in Rally taking a 1st. A grand summer with a JH leg and a RN and CD title.

Fieldday Boundin' CD RN (Boone) Best of Opposite in Sweeps for our little Boone at the FCRSC's National Specialty, under Am judge Alice Andrews. Boone accumulated other nice wins, at the FCRSA's Regional Specialty by taking 1st in her 12-18 month class and 2nd in the Sweeps. She placed 1st in Obedience, 1st in Rally and was also 1st in her class at the Alberta Kennel Club All Breed show. During the summer, she also passed a JH leg and finished her RN and CD titles.

Fieldday Mr. Incredible RN TD (Findus) Findus added a Rally Novice (RN) title to his name and, with his 2 legs in obedience novice (CD) a third is no doubt on the way. Bravo Nicole and Findus!

Ch Fieldday Aston Martin Flash started his US show career by winning a 4-pt major at the Syracuse show in April. Shown on occasion, he continued doing well with handler Sarah Crepeau.


2009


FCRSA's National Specialty, Warwick, Rhode Island
Fieldday had a great and successful time with many wins:
Matlaras Estella (Pixie): 1st in the 6-9 month old class in both the Sweeps and the Regular Show.
Fieldday Aston Martin (Flash): 1st in the Novice dog class.

Can Ch Fieldday Modern Times (Botox): 5th in the Open class with an entry of 25 dogs.

Fieldday First Star Dream (Star): 5th in the 12-18 month old class with an entry of 29 bitches.

Can Ch Fieldday Impromptu CD JH (Caleigh): 2nd in her Novice class.

Fieldday Mr. Incredible TD (Findus) took part in an intensive 10-day training session with the Search and Rescue Dog Association of Alberta. His owner, Nicole Haueisen, wrote: ... the first two days were pretty hard for him 'cause he never took a break while waiting his turn but he then got used to sleeping anywhere whenever he got the chance. He has a lot of drive for disaster search and also for cadaver. We could not do a lot of water search because of the weather but when we did, he loved to jump from the boat into the water. His training also took him to a mall for socialization, elevators and stairs, different surfaces and his obedience was put to the test when he had to stay still by a rollercoaster". What incredible work for a 6-month old puppy. All this work paid off as a month later, Findus had a Tracking title (TD).

Ch Fieldday Aston Martin (Flash) finished his Canadian Championship and took a Group 4. Congratulations to owner Hélène Beaupré-Picard.

Ch Fieldday First Star Dream (Star) took WB, BW and BB from the 12-18 month class to finish her Canadian Championship under Australian judge Marie Merchant. Congratulations to her owner Susan O'Marra.

MY TRIP TO ENGLAND


At the end of March 2007, my daughters and I travelled to the UK. Flat-Coats were of course on the agenda. Good timing allowed me to attend a novice working test, on Sue Jones' kind invitation. On this particular day, the dogs needed to succeed four exercises to be in the running for the ribbons: a double retrieve, a single mark followed by a blind retrieve, a water test and a walk-up with honour. Congratulations to Sue and Rumpus for their 4th place.

The following day, at the Championship Show, Sue handed me her number, show lead and Rumpus (Gayplume Flamboyant at Suchanoich) and told me to go have fun. Thanks to Sue and Rumpus for a thrilling two days.
