Getting back to the purpose of my original post, I find that people have been wonderful with their advice...including some private messages, which I can't respond to at this time...because I need my husband's paypal account info to upgrade my membership.

Thanks for all of the helpful advice!
You don't need to upgrade your account--just post 15 times and then you'll be able to respond to PMs.

Funny that nowhere else on earth seems to need to make up names for a lighter coloured GR to drive another layer of consumerism.
My UK friends and I comment all the time about how we all speak english in a sense... but have to ask each other what we all mean every time. I try to go back and forth to the UK and visit friends every year... its funny how folks who speak the same language can misunderstand each other all the time...

and I agree... the making up of stupid names is a uniquely american method of feeding peoples vanity and need to outdo each other... it is just amazing

There are quite a few UK people on the forum and a community group as well. We don't talk much- there is only about 28,000 message on there! Annef

When you find a potential breeder or puppy parents, post them in the forum and we can help double check your research.
I found something that looks pretty good. Loup Valley Goldens. It is in Nebraska. I was looking at Estes and Joys litters. Initially Estes' pedigree is not listed on the website, but his clearances and other info I found on k9facts.com and through the offa website.

Was hoping that you could confirm that these are good candidates.

How about the post about a co-worker going to sell her golden puppy because it's too much work?
http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...-dog-lady.html (call me the crazy dog lady)
maybe something good could be worked out there for the pup.
just my 2 cents

Loup Valley's litters look good for clearences. The only thing I would like to see is the up to date clearences on eyes for both dams. The have CHIC certificates in the sire and both dams which is good.
Keep in mind that Fair is a passing grade. So, I don't find fault with breeders using dogs with a fair clearence.

I didn't check, but if these dogs are of recent European lineage, make sure they have been cleared for Ichthyosis and all PRA--extra clearances above & beyond OFA hips/elbows, heart & annual eyes.
