He is 8.5 year old

He is a flat-coated retriever

His name is Merlin (because he is a magic dog)

He is VERY handsome and quite regal (flat-coats are used in shooting parties to retrieve the wild fowl from the water)

He was bred locally by a couple who wanted their bitch to have puppies just once

His mother is called Jena and his father is called Noah

He is very independent – loves to run free and runs a long way away from us

He loves to go in the water but is not so keen on swimming unless we throw in an object for him to retrieve

He is obsessive about sniffing!

He brings us all such JOY!
