The Flat-Coated Retriever originated in England in the mid-19th century. It is commonly believed that came from a cross between the now extinct St. John’s Water Dog, the Newfoundland, the Collie and a Setter breed. This breed comes in two acceptable colors, black and liver; the coat is a single coat (no undercoat) and is long shiny and straight. According to the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America the average life span of this breed is only about 10 years with the highest percentage of deaths due to cancer. The Flat-Coated Retriever is happiest when working; he needs daily vigorous exercise, and does well in obedience, agility and hunting competitions. The AKC recognized the breed in the Sporting Group in 1915. Their ideal size is 22 to 24 1/2 inches tall at the withers.
Our Pen Sets are perfect for anyone’s desk. Each pen set comes with a walnut finished base, measuring 4.25" x 6" x .5" thick, a gold tone pen holder, a gold tone (blue) ink pen, and a 4"-5" figurine.
Pen sets are shipped without the figurine glued in place. This eliminates breakage and allows the figurine to be positioned at the angle you prefer. If you wish to glue, any 2 part epoxy or silicon glue (Goop) works fine.
Perfect for a gift or to display at your store, these are available in any of our standard figurines including dogs, cats, or animals!
