We were not going to keep from Star and Rumours' litter but this big man decided he was staying.
Storm is a beautiful balance of his mum and dad, his dads looks with his mums charming personality!
He is totally adored by everyone at home ♥

2nd Post Graduate Dog
Storm made his debut at East of England Championship show on the 4th July at 6 months and 2 days old and qualified for Crufts 2015 by being placed 3rd in a gorgeous class of minor puppies :) :) we were so proud of our boy!!
Then after a few more shows, Storm had a break from the ring to allow him some time to start to fill his large frame.
After 3 months he returned and in his first weekend gained 2 x Best Puppy in Breed, 2 x Gundog Puppy Group 1's and a BEST PUPPY IN SHOW!
After Puppy came his Junior classes and at 13 months old Storm took 3 Best of Breeds in a row including a BEST IN SHOW!!
We were absolutely delighted and our big man took it all in his stride! He continued to be consistently placed in all his junior classes.
Summer 2016 saw Storm's return to the ring, after a full 12 months break. He did it in style by gaining Best of Breed, qualifying him for Crufts 2017.
Our beautiful boy xx

Here are some of Storm's critiques!
'1st Ayling-Jones' Raiveslake Urban Storm Well made dog, handsome boy with lovely expression, good bone & substance, well angulated front & rear, neat feet. Shown freestanding, in excellent well presented coat. Moved well, great ring presence to take BPIB, PG1 and BPIS!'

'Puppy group 1 Golden Retiever Ayling-Jones' Raiveslake Urban Storm.
Wow! When this dog entered the ring it gave me tingles, head to tail this dog has it all, correct angles, topline and tailset, excels in bones & rear angulation, but it is in the movement when this dog comes alive, covers the ground with such ease and little effort. I had to remind myself that this dog is only a puppy. Has all the attributes to go all the way to the top! Fit for function and fit for top honours, PG1, absolutely delighted to see him gain BPIS;' Mark Hodgkinson (Achouffe)
'J (12,1) 1. Ayling-Jones raiveslake Urban Storm. Well up to size all male dog that is looking the part, so balanced and commanded attention. I last judged him at 6 months old and am pleased to he has fulfilled all the promise. He has the most appealing head with a melting expression that is enhanced by his good pigment, a balanced head with good depth of muzzle, carried well on a strong muscular neck . Good lay back of shoulders with upper arm of good length, straight legs with tight feet, short coupled, lovely bend of stifle, straight hocks. When he moved, he moved straight and true with good drive and carried himself well. He just filled my eye, give another 18 months, am sure he will do well. Delighted to award him BOB in very good company.'
