What was special about Am. CH. Sunset's Happy Duke OS?

Pedigree: Am. CH. Sunset's Happy Duke OS

I was digging around looking at De Novo's genetic influence on his sire and dam's side and both have influence from him, and I was curious if anybody knew anything about him in terms of temperament or personality?

What I think of when I see his name is that his sire, Peter, is probably in the pedigree of every dog in America!

Was that Peter owned by the same Jane Engelhard that was an American philanthropist who was married to Charles Engelhard?

He is the father of Ch Cummings Gold-Rush Charile.
My mom, Mary Cummings bred Am Ch Sunsets Happy Duke to her dog Am, Can Ch Cummings Golden Princess, and Charlie was the one of the puppies of that litter. That breeding was so good that she bred the same breeding a few years later.

That was the same Peter owned by Jane Engelhard. Ch Cummings Golden Princess was from Engelhards as well.

Jane Englehard was a well-respected breeder in the NJ area about the time I became interested in Goldens. She had some beautiful dogs, as I recall.

Other than appearance, what was he like? Was he laid back and mellow? Or has it been too long for you to remember? That is really cool either way!!
