Timmy was selected for Field and Retrieving Trial purposes, as I was a keen trialler.
His background on his sire’s side included Ch Queenlee Debonair AOC QC, his father, grandfather and great grandfather all had obedience titles and on his mother’s side was Ch Tiptree Truska CD who also had obedience titles as well as his grandmother being Dual Ch Sweetwater Courage.
Timmy achieved his first novice obedience pass at eight months of age and obtained his Companion Dog (CD) obedience title at the age of eighteen months after four trials.
At the same time we competed in Field Trials (two months of each year) and Timmy obtained his Novice Field Trial Dog title when he was nineteen months old. We continued with Field Trials and Retrieving Trials with Timmy coming up the ranks of the Retrieving trials obtaining his Restricted Retrieving Dog (RRD) title at five years of age.
During this time Timmy returned to South Australia to be campaigned by his breeder Mrs Barbara Moore and over a two month period and seven Championship shows obtained his show Championship Title in 1988.
In 1990 Timmy competed in the NSW Open Field Trial and winning this trial gave Timmy his Field Trial Title thus also giving him the status of Dual Champion.
Timmy’s progeny also gained titles in the obedience ring and his daughter, FT Ch Ferntip Golden Spike also gained her Field Trial Title.
We continued competing in the Field and Retrieving Trial scene, being placed in the Restricted and All Age stakes until Timmy retired at the age of ten years.
