    My only brush with Goldens spoiled me because he was a great dog...I got to see Dual Ch AFC Tigathoes Funky Farquar up close and personal (as in he lived with the family in College Station)..first time I saw him he slept overnight with us in Southern Calif..he would have been the penultimate chick magnet if I had been a little quicker, he was that good looking, big, bold and was a marking sonofagun...obviously since he won the National Derby Championship in '73...but he and his O/H couldnt run blinds to save their lives, until they met Clint...he had only a single placement when running the big stakes. Clint taught Quar and Dottie how to run sight blinds, and nothing but sight blinds, only threw him a mark here and there because he would pin everything anyhow..within 3 months Quar was running good blinds, and took a second in the Open in Phoenix in Feb '75, he and Dottie started finishing trials and placing highlighted by a big win in the Open in No Florida that fall...I think Quar ended up with 52 AA points in his career, qualified for two or three nationals...the only shame was that wasnt a deeper pool of quality dams to breed him to..

    He was a heck of a good boy, if I ever get my hands on the family archives of pictures buried deep in an Austin garage I will scan and post the pics of him, albeit most are in B/W

    Unfortunately yes, the older lines were tough no nonsense dogs that were not afraid of taking you on and don't mean fear bitting! I was a military police service dog trainer and handler, old school dogs, swung my share of them and you know what I mean. Been bitten my share of times, worse bites got were from training the sweet gentle Goldens, bitches were the worse. That and the e collar has mostly diminished along with better breeding that type of behavior in all of the retriever breeds in my opinion.

    Great to know how much he was cherished. Some heartbreaking short lives..in those great old lines, for various reasons. Just really tugs at the heart..probably due to the history there.

    A little off subject, but this is a reminder to us all to be careful http://k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=15812 "Red"

    Wish there were photos ..on K9 Data as well. They are such a great tribute in my humble opinion.

    This is a great thread..great read...

    The bottom half , Nancy' Golden Dawn , I had a half sister to her Huntress of Dillowspat, were duck hunting dogs, never trialed and owned by the owner of Stietz resort in Antioch Illinois. Pat was my first Golden born Dec 1963 she was the sanction trial queen poor folks field trials. She had 27 trial placements derby through open.
