    Default Mary Howley, AKC's Breeder of the Year 2013

    Congrats Mary! Long long over due! What you do and have done for our sport. The dogs that have started so many people's lives....many have come from you and your program. Such a wonderful history for so many different types of retrievers and their people. I tip my hat to you fine lady. Thank you for what you've given to us! May God bless you and all our dogs. Congrats to you Mary Howley, AKC Breeder of the Year for 2013

    Agreed what Mary doesn't know about breeding dogs isn't worth knowing. I am a life Member of the Madison Retriever Club and have known her for a long , long, time. She has answered my questions on numerous occasions relating to the dogs.

    Don't know Mary, but certainly know of her through RTF. Her offspring of retrievers are a nice for the sport. So many out there do so well! and continue to do so. Nice award and well deserved. Congratulations!

    If I ever acquire as much knowledge as Mary has forgotten about retrievers, I will die happy. She is one of a kind.

    I've had two Candlewood's pups and dealing with Mary and everyone she associates with has been a real pleasure.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations Mary!

    I first met her when training alone at Gallaghers (field trial grounds - Madision Retriever Club). I was a new member and she came down off the levee with "Rita" just out for a morning walk. Her smile, spirit and humor is contagious.

    One day during the last series of an Amateur, I was working at the line. Several dogs in a row had some really wild hunts on the long bird. After the last dog had run, I had a chance to quietly ask her, "What was going on out there?" Her matter of fact reply with a twinkle in her eye was "It's a field trial." That left me chuckling to myself for quite awhile.

    As I recall she had a really cool little truck dog that had never learned to "give up a bumper" (very entertaining).

    As I recently posted, I just picked up a new pup fr Mary this past Saturday. What a wonderful lady. She allowed my wife and I to visit her and the litter anytime we wanted. I learned so much from her and a good friend of mine is now getting a pup from her as a pet.based on my recommendation. I know he will get a great dog too.

    Congratulations Mary!
    When i started my kennel, Candlewood kennel was a reference to me, a reference of outstanding achievement and personal vision of Labrador breeder.
    Never thought Mary would be so generous to me, i was fortunate to have some nice and constructive discussion with her about her vision.
