Arrival Story:
I know this lady who groomed our dogs out of her home, who was also a breeder. While my mom and I were waiting for our dog to be done with his haircut, a dog jumped up on her half door to see us. My mom said "Oh! What a pretty curly coated retriever!" And the lady was really surprised that my mom knew ther was such a breed. My mom assured her that she was familiar with the breed, and really liked them. The lady then proceeded to say that she had a female curly upstairs, and did we know of anyone who would want an adult dog. Then she asked if we would be interested. She said that she could bring the dog down for us to look at. And before my mom could protest, the lady dashed up the stairs to get the dog. I was sitting on the couch the whole time, and then the dog came down. She was gorgeous! Black curly hair everywhere! Before I knew it she was on my lap. And the rest is history :)

Penny is a pure-bred curly coated retriever, who is a former show dog and has won 2 best in shows.
