    Ethel Weber also had the best chocolate-chip cookies too which she brought to trials. Remember?
    Mary H. also had Goldens at one time.
    Where's Caroline? She's a lurker.

    I am out of touch and entertaining myself with a foot of snow on the ground, just trying to bring out the Golden people as the field dogs get short changed in the field world. There some extremely knowledgeable Golden folks that lurk here.
    Yup remember Ethel Weber's cookies. So my brother starting teaching probably after you graduated in 1999? Right!

    I'll tell ya what: this thread has really made my dog's pedigree come to life for me and I really appreciate it! Now I look at the famous names and have a story and history to tie to that name. How cool!!! Flyer is curled in a ball on her cushy bed by the couch right now - I look at her and see a universe of great storied dogs! So neat.

    Special thanks to Glenda for sending me sooo much information to read - still not through it all. And all of you great Golden folks who added to this thread.

    One neat thing I realized tonight, was that John Gunn - owner/handler of Stanley Steamer - apparently imported a pup from Britain called Osmington Anya. She was then bred to Topbrass Cotton (1/2 Uk via Barty) to create Anya's Brassy Boss "Buck", also owned by John. Buck was then bred to Sungold Superbrass (line bred on Barty on both sides) to create Stanley's Dam. That's a lot of Barty and a lot of UK. There's a lot of Treunair blood in Stanley's ped, too. Maybe I should call John and pick his brain!

    Not a bad idea... But you might want to get Janice on the phone too, a ton of dog knowledge there...

    Best in show, maybe not. But a finished champion, I think yes.
    It's hard to judge the angles in his rear because of the way he's standing, but he looks very balanced. Nice amount of bone, nice neck set, lovely muzzle/stop/ear set. Perfect tailset. Hard to judge his topline, again because of the way he's standing, but it looks solid.
    Gorgeous dog.

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Val Walker's balanced approach to breeding working Goldens and her contributions to the breed!

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    John, I may be the only one on RTF that has owned a Barty and KiowaII male as well as a Lad grand-get.


    My next pup might be a Chessy and strictly for hunting.
