An amazing dog. In addition to his accomplishments in competition, Arnie was a gentleman with an impeccable temperament. His duties at home included chief puppy socializer and guest greeter. His fan club spanned the globe and he never met anyone he didn't like. His field career ended early due to a shoulder injury but he settled in happily as Bob's side kick and a hunting dog extraordinaire.
Dear dear Arnie - I held you in my hands when you took your first breath and in my arms when you took your last. God bless you sweet boy. This hurts so much, but I know you are pain free and in a better place. Love you always Arn-Arn
Cody - aka the "Code Man" joined us when he was two. A victim of overly harsh training methods as a young dog, Cody took a while to trust people again but eventually bloomed in his new home with us. A sensitive, one person dog, he was my shadow, an outstanding hunting companion and a GRCA outstanding sire. Cody produced many fine puppies for us, contributing immensely to our breeding program, as well as to the programs of other breeders. He passed in my arms under his favourite Linden Tree. Run free Code Man, I will see you again. Love you!
Loved and admired by all who knew her. An extraordinary being. I loved her and she knew it, she loved me and I knew it. Diva gave 100% in everything she did, whether in the competitive arena, whelping box or in the hunting field. She is a GRCA outstanding dam, needed a win for her FTCH, earned her GMH and QFTR titles easily and was the last thing that many ducks, pheasants and geese saw. Most importantly she was queen of my heart and she took a piece of that with her when she passed.
Fyre's achievements were numerous, GRCA Outstanding dam status, a Grand Master Hunter title, a HRCH and placements in field trial qualifying stakes. She was also a wonderful companion and an amazing hunting dog. She is deeply missed.
Asta achieved many firsts for Golden Retrievers in Canada during her lifetime. Most importantly she was first in my heart and she enriched my life in so many ways. I miss her terribly.
Rest well sweet girl. A piece of me went with you on your final journey.
We lost our beloved Coal suddenly last fall at the end of the hunting season from renal failure. She spent the last weeks of her life doing what she loved best and being with her favorite human - Bob. She was quite a lady and she is deeply missed.
