Candlewood's Super Tanker  92 NFC & 92  NFAC  (TANK)

After several years away from the sport Joyce Williams moved to Wisconsin and in 1984 purchased a puppy from Mary Howley – the last pick of a litter sired by 1976 NFC-AFC San Joaquin Honcho out of Candlewood's Delta Dash. This was the beginning of a ride of a lifetime in the great sport of retriever field trials.
Joyce ran this "bright ball of dynamite" in nine puppy stakes. Tank won seven of them and became more than excited about field trials. Although Joyce had performed the early basic and obedience training, she realized she would need help. Professional trainer Mike Lardy accepted Tank in training two weeks shy of his first birthday.
After thriving in the training program provided by Lardy and his assistant, Andy Attar, Tank won five Derbies while accumulating thirty-six Derby points and became Qualified All-Age at twenty months of age.
At age three Tank was a finalist in the 1988 National Amateur Championship. He then won the 1990 National Amateur Retriever Championship in Sauvie Island, Oregon.
In winning the 1992 National Open Championship in Ardmore, Oklahoma, "Tank" became only the fourth retriever in field history to win both the National Open and the National Amateur Championships. He was handled to the wins by Mike Lardy in the National Open and by Joyce in the National Amateur.

Tank also proved to be a productive and popular stud dog. He sired NFC-AFC Candlewoods Tanks A Lot, a daughter who won three National Open Championships in 1990, 1991 and 1993, and is the All-Time High-Point Derby dog with 108 Derby points.
NFC-NAFC Candlewoods Super Tanker amassed 238 All-Age points during a career which was cut short by a shoulder injury. Tank died one month short of the 1993 National Open Championship in which he would have defended his title. That year's winner was his daughter, "Lottie."

Belle. She was truly a once in a lifetime dog that people who saw her work or hunt would be the first to tell you. She was one fo those gifted animals that I was most fortunate to bond with at the highest level. Fortunately I have multiple generations of her offspring so she's not lost. She could smoke any venue hunt tests at the highest level across the country and win tournaments anywhere also.  Sometimes she'd have to switch gears
from day to day.  We have an entire room full of plaques, trophies, and
ribbons just from her!    Dan Hove

UPLAND MAGGIE 2011 WORLD FLUSHING CHAMPION

Maggie  is an incredible hunter. She’s that one in a million that can find that bird that has no scent, track it to the bird is forced to flush, where other dogs have pass over and never even flick a ear. She has hunted and retrieved thousands of birds. She was honored at the 13th annual NBDCA National Championships in March of 2008 for Amateur Dog of The Year. More recently Maggie was crowned the 2011 World Flushing Champion. She has a very diverse pedigree ranging from British Import Field Champion dogs to American & Canadian National and Amateur National Field Champions. Many of these dogs hold dual titles including AKC, BDC, HRC, APLA, and NAHRA.

Five of these national wins occurred in the Canadian National Open and Canadian National Amateur. Names of titled offspring exceed 110 are too many too list here, but one bears mentioning.
