Hello everyone. Just wanted to say hi and thanks you for having this site. This has been a tremendous find for me / our family. We had a golden from 1988 -1998, I recall his grandfather was OTCH Meadowpond Strut, and the names Topbrass and Bojangles are all on his pedigree. Meant nothing to me as he was just a SUPER DOG ! He was even part of my wedding ceremony
, that was the deal ! Anyway, yes i thought rather prematurely but we had to put him down due to bone cancer at only 10 years old.
Could not bear to get another golden so we opted for a Lab from Kelleygreen Labradors (Sally Kelley). Sally matched us with the absolute perfect companion, a yellow lab we named Fletcher, he lived a good 13.5 years, when we put him to rest in Oct. 2011. I miss them BOTH!
I'm here as we started to weigh our options again and may be, could be, possibly, be in search of another Golden Boy ! We will likely go to the IKC show Feb. 23 at McCormick Place here in Chicago. In the meantime, can any give any good breeder names hopefully within a 5 hour drive of Chicago.
thanks again.... hope I can give to this forum as much as I have taken !!!
