Just a place for me to store photos of my current boy "Deuce," Esquire's Two Aces Up My Sleeve. Pedigree: Esquire's Two Aces Up My Sleeve BPISS BOSS

Winning his first major, Best of Winners.


Head shot on my phone.


First or second dog show. He's about 9-12 months old in this pic.


Silver Bay Kennel Club 2019. His third major win in a row.


Also Silver Bay, same day.


San Diego Golden Retriever Club specialty show, Best Op in Sweepstakes. Theresa was showing him. Also a major reserve.

He is a very nice dog Dana. You said in another thread, "I breed sporting dogs" and he looks like a sporting dog. Like he could win in the show ring and then head right out to go hunting and never miss a beat. Are you planning on titling him in any other venues?

Thanks, Maegan. :) I don't know if we will. Deuce's sister is doing well in obedience, but I have neither the time nor the energy to get him to the point where he could achieve there.

I always want to put hunt and field titles on my dogs, but I have gotten to the point where I cannot stomach killing birds for fun. To me, it's not fun, it's barbaric. And while it's amazing to see the dogs fulfilling their purpose, I just cannot do it. I might send him out and have a handler train and title him, but it will be some time before that happens, because I think this guy is going to have a long show career.

But if there were titles in tennis ball, he'd have them all. :D

Me practicing with Deuce today, 4/15/19. I have to show him from bred by four days in a row this weekend, with all pros in the ring except me. If I can consistently make him look this good, I'll be super happy. But this is much harder than it looks! There's a reason I pay people to do this. LOL!

Deuce is 16 months old in this photo. I can't wait until he matures.

I'm so excited!

I've never handled a dog in a show in my life...until this weekend. And today, Deuce and I won Winners Dog and Best of Winners from the Bred By Exhibitor class. That's super hard to do, especially since I had no experience, was terrified the whole time, and struggled. But we won anyway, and Deuce's competitors -- the owners and the professional handlers -- burst out in cheers and applause in an amazing show of support. What a fantastic day.

WOW, THAT'S GREAT!!! He's such a gorgeous boy and although I know next to nothing about conformation and dog shows it obvious he's top-notch. What a great endorsement of your and Theresa's program of careful breeding and hard work. Congratulations.
