Spring at the new Stellar Retrievers

Spring at the new Stellar Retrievers

April 25, 2020 by

What a wonderful place to be quarantined! Stellar training goes on as if there was nothing happening outside these 110 acres. Jack and I are praying for so many we know and many we don’t know for healing and health. If you are fortunate enough to be healthy at this time, we pray you stay that way, if not know we are praying for you daily. Remember to be kind to all and if possible generous to those less fortunate. This time will pass and we will all be stronger and more resilient on the other side.

events of this fall

December 06, 2019 by

Stellar Retrievers has had a very busy fall! We returned home in August to close on the old Stellar property and move to the new property on Sept 10th. Then it was full steam ahead on building ponds and clearing the property. We were off to Master National in Cheraw SC October 17-27, beginning with a good pre-training week, October 13-17. The weather for the week of testing was very good, just a couple of days of light rain and cool temperatures. Thank you to all the judges and MN committee for challenging tests that showed the abilities of our dogs.  Thank you to our wonderful judges in Flight D, Ellison Armfield and Richard Anderson for their efforts and their time in the chair. It was nice getting to know them better and look forward to seeing them in the future. Congratulations to all the competitors who received plates and a special congrats to Stellar’s Proud Mary on her MNH8! Way to go Bob and Mary. Jack and I are very proud of all the Stellar dogs that qualified for this year. Thank you all for allowing Stellar to train you talented dogs. The Stellar dogs that received plates were: Major owned by Gary Witherspoon, Lion owned by Mary Ellen Hamilton, and Cinder who became an MNH 4, owned by Bill and Lynn Teague; Glory, Lena, Baylee, Mariah and Tori, Stellar’s personal dogs also received plates. Stellar clients who handled their personal dogs trained by Stellar did very well. Joal Harper received a plate with Mia, Dede and Wayne Paterson passed their dogs Jones and Tryst, Marion Woolie received a plate with Remi, and Nathan Proske passed Trigger. It was a great moment for Dede, Wayne, Nathan, and myself when our family of dogs Jones (dad), Baylee (mom), Lena, Tryst, and Trigger (siblings) all became MNH’s and entered the Hall of fame. Look forward to seeing all the old and new friends we have made in Minnesota at MN 2020.
