Tom and I have had Goldens since 1972, back when people would ask us if our first male Golden was "part Irish Setter"? Back when there were many people who didn't even know what a Golden Retriever was! We've been hooked on them ever since.
In that time, we've had eight goldens. We currently have three female goldens; we lost our Abbi at 12 in 2013. We have two of Abbi's daughters, Chime (11 years old and from the Music litter) and Kerri (9 years old and from the Irish litter), and Chime's daughter Diamond, the pup born May 20, 2011, from our Gemstone litter.
We are a small hobby breeder in Michigan striving to produce healthy Goldens with proper temperament, sound structure, and great work ethic. We have a litter every couple of years. All our puppies are raised in our home with early neurological stimulation and socialization.
I compete with my dogs in agility, obedience, rally, and field work. Tom does upland game hunting with all of them.
