 Abbi was our golden that we were lucky to get from Gayle Watkins and her Gaylan’s goldens. She was everything we had asked for. She loved life and her tail never quit wagging. She was my agility star. She loved agility with a passion. She was very responsive, focused, and fast.

Abbi was Tom’s great hunting partner, hunting pheasants. 
We took time out from Abbi’s training and trialing to have three litters. 
In April 2005, Abbi had her first litter, which we co-bred with Abbi’s breeder Gayle Watkins, from Gaylan’s Goldens.
We bred her to Timberee at Monument Canyon CDX MH WCX ** OS a beautiful obedience hunting dog, who lived to be 15 1/2, from several conformation lines. We had nine beautiful puppies, kept a little girl named Chime, and the rest went to fantastic homes. She became an Outstanding Dam with this first litter and they helped their sire Canyon become an Outstanding Sire too. They did agility, rally, tracking, obedience, and became great hunting dogs, and wonderful companions. You can see more about these puppies on the Past Litters page, Music Litter page.   
Abbi’s second litter was again co-bred with Gaylan’s Goldens and born in July, 2007. We bred her to High Times Run’n The Roost*** UD MH WCX OS.  She had five wonderful pups July 10, 2007. They went to wonderful working homes and have great careers in agility, tracking, field work. One became a Champion Tracker/MACH/MH50/HTHF/UDX and qualified for the ADHF.  One of the pups stayed here with us. Her name is Kerri. Check her out on her own webpage and check out the Irish Litter on their webpages.
Abbi’s third litter was our first litter under the Topmast name. She was bred to Ch Buckeye Standing Ovation and whelped 11 puppies Jan, 2009. They went to wonderful homes and they are doing great things.  You can check them out on the Traveling Litter webpages.
We lost Abbi to kidney cancer at 12 years and 4 months.  It has been one of the most painful losses we have experienced and we still miss her so much.
