I picked my last puppy because I felt I was in the excellent hands of one of the country's master breeders, and because I adore her mom to bits, own her father myself, and love the outline in the breeder's line in general. I like that my pup is an outcross of fabulous dogs while simultaneously the parents are phenotypically so alike it is "mind-boggling", to quote her breeder. I really like to see Outstanding Sires and Outstanding Dams close up in a pedigree bc prepotency is very important for the future of a tiny breeding program, and it is something very hard to predict or quantify. My focus is first temperament, second health, and third very competitive in conformation, so this pup made sense for me. She went to her first show the other day and earned her first two points, and is a kind happy girl. The first two picks went to the two co owners of the girls, and they are really beautiful goldens, so that aspect of being part of a "family"/litter plays a part too. Her mom won Best Of Breed at Westminster last year owner/breeder handled, earned her GCH handled by her less experienced co owner, and was the number 1 golden bitch in the USA. We were lucky to have the breeder hold a seminar along with the litter evaluation so area breeders could learn and discuss the evaluation process. Pedigree: Pebwin Reverie SoothSayer CGC

Pedigree: Topbrass Tuggin On My Heart Strings

This my last puppy, Tugg, not a puppy anymore, 4 years old. He is a Tito son, which is why I got him. Have loved Tito since he was a puppy and Barb is a good friend of mine. Tugg is a funny little dog, quirky, makes us laugh every day. He is currently my husbands nosework dog, has his ORT's and hopefully this year will enter some trials. And Tugg and I just started back to Obedience classes.

I was actually looking at labs after our Cookie passed away. I spoke to several lab breeders, but wasn't finding just what I wanted. I kept going back to the Sunfire page, and was drawn to this particular breeding that had just been announced:

Pedigree: Sunfire's To Live Is To Fly

(Hazel is Aedan's brother )

I knew Faelan from reading about him on the forum for years, and I liked that the dogs were a good blend of obedience, field, and just great all-around dogs. As Hazel turns a year old next week, I am very happy with how she is turning out!

Sunfire's To Live Is To Fly "Hazel", Cookie (RIP), Jasmine (Lab mix), Poppy & Marmalade (The Cats)

I met Samantha's co owner at a Golden club meeting last year. What a nice guy!
At every meeting there are brags for a dollar and the money goes to rescue. When I did Winter's MH brag this fall Art was sitting in front of me. He turned around and said " Master Hunter WOW that's amazing!" This from the guy who won Westminster last year, it cracked me up.
I saw Sayer's brother at what I think was his first show in November, very handsome pup.

First, congratulations on your MH bc it is amazing, and second YES he has such a big heart and getting to be "dog family" is a nice affect of choosing a puppy.

What a fun thread I've loved looking up the dogs I'm not familiar with and seeing what they've done.

My first Golden Retriever was from Clarissa King/Twin Branch Retrievers - a field/conformation breeding and he fooled me into thinking I was a decent dog trainer I was referred from the Atlanta GRC and I just figure it was fate. He was a pet but we went to obedience classes and did fun field work and he was just a joy. One of my greatest regrets is that he came along at a time in my life when I was unable to do more with him, I'd give so much to have him back just with what I've learned so far.

Because of him, I knew that this puppy had to have some dogs in his pedigree who had proven they hadn't forgotten what to do with a duck and some water. I needed rock solid temperament because my dog is first a family pet, but I also wanted a smart, biddable dog who could compensate for my lack of experience in the things I wanted to try to take farther - field and obedience.

This forum taught me so much and I did plenty of research here. When I discovered there was an amazing breeding planned - two dogs who were talented, all around Goldens and completely amateur owner trained and handled every step of the way - I drove from SC to Florida and made sure I met those dogs and both owners. The dogs and the people were everything I hoped for

I waited almost two years for that puppy and turned out "he" was a "she" but I wouldn't change a thing:

Pedigree: Richwood Work Hard Play Harder WC

One of the happiest days of my life was finding out there was a puppy for me in the Work Litter A Fisher/Sophie puppy is a dream come true for me.... and the people and dogs I've met because of her are a blessing in my life.

This thread has been a lot of fun. I've learned about other pedigrees and some significant dogs I wasn't aware of before. So thanks everyone for sharing your pedigrees. I've found that some of my dogs are or were related to others that have been posted here. It's been nice to see the reasons why someone purchased XYZ pup. It all shows how incredibly versatile our golden retrievers are. They are like no other breed in the variety of venues they can compete in. I look forward to seeing you all in the ring, in the field or out and about!
