Llewellin Common Name:Comer
Kennels Name: Twin Thickets
Owner: Bob Wilson
Twin Thickets Comer is soon to be a foundation male for Twin Thickets Llews. At 2 1/2 year old he has the attributes we cherish in our hunting kennel. Comer is high on both ends, loaded with bird drive, nose to spare, 200 yard + range, and a true gentleman in the field and kennel. Comer is primarily a wild bird dog, but before and after the Kentucky season he will compete in an occasional trial. He placed first in the Spring NLGDC puppy trial in 2017, along with a third place derby finish in the Fall 2017 NLGDC trial. He is owned by my daughter Zoe who trains and handles him in the trials. It was Zoe’s keen eye early on that he was chosen from the litter of ten. Comer’s pedigree speaks for itself with Highway Dan, Autrey’s Rowdy Waco, White Rock Rhodesia, and Pooles Royacelle Rhett within. His mother, Twin Thickets Mabelline a star in our kennel, died suddenly and unexpectantly 7 mos. after he was whelped. Through many blessings he is a replica of all of her attributes, making him a special llew in the Twin Thickets line.

Llewellin Common Name: Harper
Kennels Name: Fowler Kennels
Owners: Colin Fowler/ Lauren Fowler
Harper just turned 5. Fowler Kennels, registered in my daughter Lauren’s name. Harper is out of Jerry Idlett’s 3x NLGDC CH My Way Buddy and Russ Leaming’s Blue Skye Ivory. She made the top 30 runoffs at UFTA Nationals before she turned two, earned her UFTA Am CH, has her two wins and just needs to finish points for Open CH. Stated running some NSTRA this year as Am with a plan to just get enough points to qualify for Regionals. Her win this past weekend ends her runs as Am just one point short of current DOY candidate. She is driven to find birds, completely natural retrieve and successful on wild grouse, pheasant, and quail in addition to anything with feathers you care to plant in competition. Not afraid of 300 yards casts she still handles in a 7-acre field when asked. She has trial wins in front of me and 4 other handlers but most at home curled up in bed behind my knees!
