Pat & Tom Swallows, Topmast Golden Retrievers
Luk is an outstanding representative
of the golden retriever breed. He is a
dynamic working dog who brings intensity, focus and style to all activities he
tackles. He is also a well-constructed
dog who reeks of power and athleticism.
He is a handsome dog whose beauty lies in his nobility and functionality,
along with his handsomeness.
Luk’s conformation strength lies in his correct
angulation front and rear and wonderful pro-sternum and forechest. He has
a solid topline with very nice reach and drive. He is well balanced and light on
his feet. He has good depth of chest and
good spring of rib with a short loin.
His topline is level and he carries his tail correctly. He has a masculine head with a lot of
expression, a lovely, dark eye and brown-black pigment. He has full dentition with a scissors bite. Luk is medium gold in color with a correct,
wash and wear coat. He is a dog of
moderate size and substance, standing 23 1/2” tall and weighs 70 pounds.
Luk is a joy to train because, simply put, he
loves to work. He learns concepts very
quickly and generalizes them well. His
incredible focus to task, no matter what the distraction, makes training and
competing with him a joy. In the field,
Luk is a hard-driving dog with excellent marking skills, memory, and strong
water courage. He loves birds.
Luk’s most outstanding attribute is his phenomenal
temperament. He interacts well with
people and dogs of all ages and sexes.
He plays regularly with bitches and dogs, puppies and veterans. He is confident and calm when meeting intact
males and is comfortable sharing his tennis ball and living space with
them. In fact, his self-confidence is a
trait that shines through in every venue.
His “on/off switch” makes him always eager to work, while at the same
time a joy to live with. He goes to work
with his owner every day at a large horse farm and is a relaxed, trusted member
of the barn.
Both of Luk’s parents are outstanding producers, as
recognized by the GRCA. Luk’s sire was CH
Buckeye Standing Ovation OS, a beautiful dog with a solid temperament. Collin was a beautiful golden with an
impressive pedigree that combined some great show goldens. He was a solid, athletic Golden, weighing approximately
78 lbs. and standing 23.5″ tall.
Collin died after a brief episode of testicular cancer at 12 years of
Luk’s dam was U-CH
U-CD U-AGII CATCH Gaylan’s High Flying Abbi CD RE JH MXB MJB OF NAP WC OD CCA
VC AD EAC. In her youth and
right up until her death, she was a hard-driving,
high energy, very birdy retriever who absolutely loved the water. She also excelled in agility.
Abbi produced Multiple High-in-Trial Can CH GMOTCH MH, a CT MACH UDX MH28, three
MH’s, several UDX/OM1’s, and several MX/MXJ’s, and many more multi-titled
offspring. Abbi died of kidney cancer at 12 years of age.
Luk is from a litter of eleven, several of which
went to novice competition homes. Today,
they are pursuing field, agility and obedience titles. One sister has her Can CH-GMOTCH-MH, multiple HITs, and a 200 score. Another sister went from Nov A to her OTCH. Two others completed their
UDX. Four JH and a SH.
One has a UKC Conformation Championship.
All eleven of the pups have performance titles, five with their CCA’s. This is a tribute to the great owners and the
biddability and great worth ethic of this litter.

.42/.44, placing him in the 80th percentile. He has normal elbows,
heart, and eyes. He is clear/normal for

Max’s parents are wonderful, stable dogs. Max’s sire is Raggedy Run Time Well Wasted MH
*** WCX CCA, a great dog with a solid temperament. Kamikaze was a beautiful golden with an impressive pedigree that combined some great show and performance goldens. He could easily have played in the breed ring. His owner chose to compete with him in the field, where he easily finished his MH and placed in field trials. He was also their personal hunting dog, picking up many birds in the fall. He was a solid, athletic Golden, weighing approximately 78 lbs. and standing 23.5″ tall.
Max’s dam is SHR Gaylan’s Wind Chime Melody CD BN RAE OA OAJ NAP NJP JH WC VC CCA TDI CL1 PD1 PK2. Chime is our personal hunting dog, a birdy retriever who absolutely loves hunting.

She loves to work each fall and winter picking up pheasants and ducks with us at 14 and 11 months+
