    Hi Glenda, sorry wasn't thinking about that. Actually Bait's wife Kathy has better resolution pics than the samples she sent me. I think she already sent you some, I don't know if this one was included.

    Bet he's got at least a bit of Holway Barty in him.

    It's a shame the OP couldn't have been at the Specialty. We saw nothing but Goldens, including a few show dogs as well, and the numbers that passed was comparable to the numbers that pass a w/e test including Labs and Chessies.

    Pretty sure we sent you that one, Glenda. There were a whole bunch from the boat. With just Alex, and with Alex and John, and with Alex and me. I'll check thru what I sent and make sure you have them all.

    Will you update us when you find a pup? ..and or more questions?

    We never did have a Lab..loved them though, a wonderful breed.

    Happen to obtain, "Andi" our first Golden Retriever (my early Christmas present), then "Ranger" as we started to know what Goldens are all about , had come to know his breeder through the Pine Tree GRC back then (Ranger is nearly 12 now) and loved his pedigree combination (the Sunfire etc lines..that go way back)..then finally (as of right now, LOL) "Sebec"..because I had a good feeling about the combination of his sire and dam pedigrees.

    Be careful of what you wish for!!! ...sometimes that wish happens!, so be prepared

    Goldens are very much a personal dog..and that is why they do best in the home. Need lots of good exercise and mental stimulation Companion, hunting dog is a wonderful life. If you can see both a dam and sire in person, that is great. If not, ask questions that matter to you and inquire of the dogs in the pedigree if the info is not there.

    Have you looked at K9 Data? http://k9data.com/
    ...it is a help. Clearances, longeivity..and pedigrees are so interesting. Good Luck!

    I am not in a rush at all. Would probably get a dog in a year. I am currently working my young Pudelpointer toward his NAVHDA VC champion title, and will be running HRC events this spring/summer. I see you are in Falmouth Maine ? Maybe at some point I could watch your goldens, I am not too far north in Monmouth.

    Don't exclude Canadian breedings. We have trained and/or bred the odd nice dog......Razz, Jake, Rocky, Luke, Sprint, Boomer, RV, Stanley, Silk, Rory, Bud, Lil, Rupert, Cutter...talent, looks and longevity. There are many more so excuse me for my omissions...feel free to add. A lot of these guys have U.S. and Canadian backgrounds but were raised and/or trained in Canada and have added a lot the the field lines.

I have looked at a couple of kennel websites and couldn't believe the price people want for Golden's. $1500-$1800 REALLY? Is this the norm? I plan to make it too a few hunt tests in 2013 and hopefully I can watch some Golden's work.
    I have great red golden I found at the pound...he was fifty bucks and loves water retrieving. The down side is that his long fur picks up every burr and sticky they brush up against and sometimes I have to cut them out. It gets nasty. I heard of one guy who sprayed his gr with Pam. I haven't tried that yet.
