Jack announced Ferns retirement on saturday All good things come to an end eventually I guess
Fern retires as absolutely one of the greatest dogs this sport has ever know. Jack and fern had a chemistry that few could match their record is simply amazing
thankyou Jack for coming up and telling me privately i really appreciate that, Competing against such a formidable team has spurred me on to greater efforts as im sure it has for others

Reading this post has brought a lump to my throat.
The first time I had the privilege of watching Fern run was at the South Australian National back in 2008 of which they Won.
I fell in love with this TEAM. It was an honour and privilege to be in the presence of such a wonderful Dog and her Handler on such an Occasion.

I am lucky enough to have a little bit of Fern (Great Grandmother) in my boys ("Brogan" - Reveirter Bells Occhilupo RN NRD) breeding thanks to Noel & Kate Eltringham's mating of Diva with Tsu.

We will all miss watching Fern at trials but I am sure her Retirement is well deserved.
Congratulations Jack on such a wonderful Dog.
