Our first Labrador - Wishwood Lloyd - aka "Tramp". Not a show dog but a wonderful introduction to Labradors and a fabulous family dog.
Then came Henry - Champion Wishwood Errant of Lyndham - our dog of a lifetime.

........and then again, there was Wizzy Thurbajen's Pinball Wizard of Lyndham (Othamcourt Shane x Thurbajen's Maybe This Time for Sharbour).
What can I say about him, my laughing boy, once met never forgotten!!
He was a multiple BOB winner and won a Best Puppy in Show and two Best in Show at all breed Open shows. He was a delight to show, everybody's friend, dog and human, and sired many lovely litters for people, several of who returned for repeat matings.
I still miss him so much
