We lost Breeze to an aggressive type of cancer 3 years ago at 12 1/2 years old. 

In her last years she was retired from behavioural work to help out in our puppy classes. She has done various training over the years including obedience, tracking and agility.

She has been a massive part of 'Happy Hounds' over the years, helping many dogs, including our Bella. She will be greatly missed by many.

She has just gained a 1st and 3rd in the working tests at the Curly coated retriever club champ show, July 2018.

Bella is officially enjoying retirement!
