This year has definitely been crazy good! We have competed in 3 venues with great success in all three. We are proud to say that we have added two more American Champions to our already impressive list. American Champions Louie and Dani. They completed their Championships within one week of each other! They both had huge wins at the St. Louis Golden Retriever Specialty - Louie - Winners Dog for 4 point major, Dani - Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a 4 point major. Our newest star on the scene was not going to let the big dogs have all the fun, Captain - was Winners Dog and Best of Winners the day before Louie and Dani's big win. Captain was Winners Dog and Best of Winners in Wichita for a 4 point major! And then it happened again! Captain was Winners Dog, and his sister Coral was Best of Winners - at our local Greeley show - giving the brother and sister combo BOTH majors!







Levi continues to shine. He earned is Rally Masters title, and his Novice Jumpers Title in 2008. This boy is definitely racking up the titles - American/Canadian Champion, Best In Show - Canada, obedience, rally and agility titles! Now he has his eyes on the ducks! He is heading off to hunting camp in the spring of 2009 to earn his Working Certificate in the field.

Paige - took off some time to have her lovely babies with Peter, but bounced back quickly and earned her Rally Advanced Title in 3 shows placing in the ribbons each time. She needs one more leg for her Companion Dog Obedience Degree - and aims to get that this fall.

Tof - has been a busy boy. He has worked in Rally - earning his Rally Advanced Title with ease, and he has been competing hard in agility - earning his Novice Standard and Jumpers titles - all with blazing fast times and ribbons. He just completed his Open Jumpers and his Open Standard titles, again with numerous 1st place ribbons. In just a few shows he has already earned legs towards his Excellent Agility Title. Tof's versatility is amazing, he put on his tux and showed up for the first time in the Conformation ring after two year hiatis, at the Nationals in Rhode Island, and true to form, made it to just short of the final cut (top 30)in the Specials class of over 130- showing just how special he is. 2009 he will continue Agility and throw in a Novice Obedience title to boot!

Chloe - after her two litters - headed back to the agility ring where she earned her Excellent Titles in Standard and Jumpers, and she made a move over to the Rally ring - completing her Novice and Advanced titles in the minimum number of shows - and in the ribbons She is now going for her Companion Dog Degree in Obedience, as well as working on her Masters in agility.

Merry - has also continued her career, after her Championship last year. In the Rally ring she is a genius. She has picked up four first places in the Novice Ring and the Advanced Ring. She has taken to Rally like a duck to water! She was just as good in agility, at her first shows she was in first place 3 times! She has her sites set on finishing her two Novice Agility Titles and becoming a mother in the Spring of 2009.
