Lynn Kelley served as a division associate director with the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education until his retirement in 2009, when he was presented with the State of South Carolina's Order of the Silver Crescent for his distinguished service.

"Boykin spaniel owners will have to have a copy of this. Reading and rereading it will give them hours of pleasure. But more importantly, it will arm them with facts about the breed to lord over the owners of less capable hunting dogs." - Lexington (S.C.) Chronicle "This book is loaded with photos, amusing anecdotes, results of retriever trials and hunt tests, and tons of other information. Hunting enthusiasts, no matter what breed they own, will enjoy reading it." - Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle "A comprehensive source of information about the breed, which traces its beginnings to the early part of the twentieth century." - Columbia (S.C.) State"
