The curly coated retriever-a
dog not to be sniffed at.

Not every life-changing event
announces itself with a bang-
some just sneak up on you.
It all started when Fred left
home at 17, leaving Jen with
a bad attack of empty nest.
Looking for a substitute for
those endearing teenage
traits of love, trusting naivety,
helplessness, bad behaviour,

no respect for property,
unquenchable appetite and
occasional incontinence, Jen
decided a Labrador and a
Retriever should do. However
the asthma and hay fever
sufferers in the family were
doing it tough so a new search
began for a more amenable
variety. It had to be a proper
dog not a lapdog, useful, good
with children and importantly
low allergenic.
