Farewell Fern

Postby Jack Lynch » Mon 28 Aug 2017 10:48 am

It is with great sadness that our beautiful girl Nat 2008 and 2010 Gr.Rt.Ch.Coasgarth Tassie Fern went to the happy grounds this morning.
She has given Christine and I so many great memories to treasure and will never be forgotten.

Unfortunately there comes a time when we all have to say goodbye to our wonderful dogs. Ian and I are sorry to hear of the passing of Fern. Such a wonderful retriever for you and sadly missed by you both, I'm sure.

My goal in life is to become as wonderful as my dog thinks I am.

So sorry for your loss Jack and Christine. It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to watch Jack and Fern work together, not only was Fern exceptionally skilled at the task of retrieving but a team player for her master and best mate. Fern was a very special girl that her breeder was very proud of and she will be fondly remembered.

Jack & Christine,
So sorry to hear of your loss. Fern was certainaly one of the great dogs and without doubt deserves her place in the "Hall of Fame". She had so much natural ability, watching her work was awesome.

Jack & Christine

I am deeply saddened to read of Fern's passing.
I have fond memories of the first time I met you at the 2008 National at Meningie, SA.
I had tears in my eyes watching you on the last run knowing that you would be a hard team to beat.

i am honoured to have a Great Grandson of Fern and can only hope he grows up half as good as her.

Luv & Hugs
