Olive Wood Goddess of Mershelande (aka "Livvy")

Olive Wood Goddess of Mershelande (aka "Livvy") is a black Retriever (Labrador) bred by Mr J A and Mrs W A Smith.

She is by Mr Phil Parkins FT CH Fernshot Comet ("Tommy") and out of a gamekeepers bitch with an excellent working and show pedigree (including SH CH Rocheby Royal Oak).

Her sire FT CH Fernshot Comet is by the famous fox red FT CH Flashmount Socrates ("Socs") and out of FT CH Millbuies Milly and descended on his sire's line from HM the Queen's FT CH Sandringham Sydney.

Livvy is an elegant working / field trials type bitch and although kept mainly as a pet she enjoys picking up and beating on two local shoots.  She is an athletic, hard hunting yet biddable bitch and is an excellent swimmer.

Livvy has had 2 litters: the first (March 2011) by Gameflight Forrest (Sid) and the second (Jan 2013) by FTW Garicmoor Grenadier of Ettinsmoor (Skip).
