Starr was from our first litter, sired by Ch Bushman Better Be Boss (Forrest), and her Dam is Ch Bushman Tempted To Tease (Ash).

Starr even to this day is the biggest winning Flat Coated Retriever bitch in South Australia.

Some of her biggest wins include, in May 2000, winning PUPPY IN GROUP, under Mr David Wong (NSW), then on 9/12/01 under Mrs A Spanswick (NSW), and for General Specials Mrs G Goller (Qld) winning BEST STATE BRED IN SHOW!, This was the first time EVER that a Flat Coat had won a Class In Show in South Australia.  She followed this up with another first in S.A. winning BEST IN GROUP!!, under Mrs J Egan (SA), this was a huge break through for Flat Coats in SA.

In 2003, Starr won RU BEST IN GROUP (over 200 entries) under Mrs P Kirk-D'Agostin (Vic).

Starr is still the only Grand Champion Flat Coat Bitch in S.A.  Some of her awards include top showing Flat Coat for the Gundog Club of SA in 2001, Top showing Gundog Bitch, for the Gundog Club of SA in 2002, and joining the 500 club for gaining 500 challenge points in 2002, for the Flat Coated Retriever Association of Vic.

Starr only had 2 litters the first a very small litter (sired by Ch Bushman The Marshall) of which we kept the only bitch Skyehaven Just A Star (Wish) who has gone on to a successful career, the 2nd litter was also small (sired by Ch Flatterhaft Steal Or Borrow (imp swd)), we ran on Skyehaven Dare T Compare from this litter who won multiple class in groups, and was an outstanding dog before unfortunately cracking and loosing 2 front teeth, forcing him to be placed in a pet home.
