I started judging Flatcoats way back in the 1970's at open shows around the UK. Then onto Championship Shows in the UK which then led into Europe and the rest of the world. Over the years I have made so many friends worldwide, and have been given the opportunity to Judge so many wonderful dogs, that I would like to thank everyone who has asked for my opinion by putting their dog under me at a show and remind them that whatever I say, it is only my opinion, and they still take the best dog home.

Truely Madly Deeply To Torwood (Rully)
What the judge said about our Rully " PG (21.6) 1st Jury's Truly Madly Deeply To Torwood - Liver bitch, not big and at the lower end of the height scale but profile is balanced. Pleasing head with acceptable eye colour for a liver. Coat in good condition. Won this class on her precise movement. It was a pleasure to find an exhibit that moved so straight and true both coming and going." Having been around Flatcoats for around fourty years, you tend to collect a lot of photos and news clipping along the way. I have found myself delving into boxes of old photographs for the website, and I thought it would be a good idea to have a section dedicated to the flatcoats of yesteryears, for it's them that give today's Flat coated Retriever the history that they truly deserve. These Flatcoats must never be forgotten - you are in our hearts and memories always. Over the years many Torwood dogs have been exported worldwide, to become foundation bitches for many kennels and be incorporated with other lines to increase the longevity and compound the equable temperament of local Flatcoat

This abnormal conformation of the eyelids is considered an undesirable inherited trait as it typically leads to pain and swelling of the eyes as a result of irritation caused by eyelash and other eyelid hair impingement on the cornea (the outer layer of the eyeball). Corneal ulcers are a common sequel of entropion and may lead to severe pain, vision impairment due to scarring and loss of the integrity of the entire eye, which can lead to enucleation (eyeball removal).
Dogs bred for heavy facial folds and a “droopy eye” look are most commonly affected. It is considered very rare in cats. Entropion is an obvious conformational change even most uneducated owners will note readily. Full evaluation of the eye is necessary, however, before medications or other treatments are employed. This is due to the propensity for corneal ulceration and the potential for inappropriate choice of medications. A veterinarian will typically anesthetize the eye (because it is often painful) and stain the cornea to determine integrity or ulceration before electing a treatment regimen. Ophthalmologists are often enlisted, especially in severe cases, after general practitioners have diagnosed the condition and assessed its severity. Both eyes are typically involved. Entropion is an issue for the following breeds: Entropion is also common to giant breeds such as: Some of these larger breeds may suffer a simultaneous combination of entropion and ectropion.
The ideal treatment for entropion depends on its severity but most often relies on surgical intervention to correct the lid deformity. This kind of plastic surgery (called “blepharoplasty”) requires the precise excision of a crescent shaped bit of tissue over the affected lid(s) to rotate the lid outwards. Some dogs require multiple surgeries, particularly in the severely affected or in young, growing dogs whose lids may change in conformation as they age. If the entropion is evident at a very young age, some veterinarians will advocate a more simple procedure called “lid tacking.” In this approach, a stitch is placed above or below the lid or both (depending on the lids affected) in the hope that as the lids develop they will do so in a “rolled out” fashion. This approach is not always effective in the long term. Alternatives to entropion surgery for dogs with excessive skin fold above the eyes include “brow lifting” procedures that require permanent implants.
