About

Fara is Islay’s daughter by Thomas (Ch Tesoro De Ria Vela for Thornywait) and is a very outgoing lively puppy. She takes everything in her stride and has settled into life here at Easter Blacklaw.  We are attending ringcraft each
week and entered the Show ring in the middle of March 2016.

She delighted everyone by winning ​Reserve Best Puppy In Show at Scottish Breeds Championship Show in March – her first Champ show.  Fara has shown well since then and achieved her Junior Warrant at 16 months old in spite of dropping her coat over Christmas!

On 30th September 2018 Fara delighted us all by being awarded the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate at the Golden Retriever Club of Wales Championship Show by judge Sarah Wood (Bresharo).

Liked her height to length proportions as she had good length of leg.  She won this class on movement which was so positive and strong.  Would prefer a bit more width  to the muzzle.  Intelligent expression.  Adequate lay of shoulder.  Good straight front with tight fitting elbows.  Deep mature body proportions.  Strong, level toppling held on the move.  Well developed hindquarters.  In nice condition.
