Australian Champion Alnclair Ben Nevis

Benny is a real sweetie - he always greets everyone with a gift in his mouth - what a Retriever!

Benny wasn't shown after mid 2005 until an All Breeds show in September 2006 where he won Best of Breed and was in the short line up for the Best in Group judging.  His next and last show was the 6th GRC National. 

Tragically Benny developed a nasal tumour which progressed quite quickly over a period of 3 months and we had to say "Good Bye" to our darling boy on 9 July 2007 - gone to the Rainbow Bridge - but never forgotten.
