Wondering where Wynk got her name? She’s named for an old nursery rhyme called Wynken Blynken and Nod. Check it out here.
Wynk at 7 weeks.
Tisket showing Wynk how to retrieve in the water – even if it is just a stick!
Wynk’s first time in the show ring. She moved out well and showed like a trooper. Wynk placed 4th in a nice class of puppies under breeder-judge Gunella Ek.
Wynk doesn’t just move out in the dog shows, she can also move while retrieving.
Earning her Working Certificate, Wynk started off with one mark on land – near the top of a little hill – no problem. But there was something new, something she’d never seen before. A blind out in the field, hiding people. ‘What’s that?,’ she asked. So she had to go take a peek before bringing her bird back to mom. Delivered to hand and land portion completed!
After a bit, we worked the water portion – back to back retrieves in a pond enclosed by tall reeds and other vegetation. Another new experience for her. Out and back, delivered to hand for each mark, with her signature squeal as she left the line. Quite proud of my little Lab! Photos courtesy Linda Alexander
Now that she’s grown up a bit, Wynk will be competing in dog shows too.
I’d only planned to run Tisket in the hunt test, but Wynk kept telling me, “Put me in coach. I’m ready to play.” So I did and she smoked it! She got her first pass at the Platte Valley HRC hunt test in Snyder, CO the same day her mom finished her title.

Can you tell she loves working?
“No, mom, I don’t want to go out after all.”
