Quick Bio:

December 1st 2003

I love all my training classes, boating, swimming, having my tummy scratched, and wrestling with my sis, Sonnet. She's pretty cool for a girl... I'm also a retrieving MANIAC! My favoritest thing in the whole world though is my Mommy. I wuv her SO much!!!!

I don't like to have my nails clipped but give me a carrot to munch on and I can deal with it! ;-)

Favorite Toy:
I love my chocolate flavored Nylabone, Kong, Chuckit Retriever, Soft Bite Flying Disc, Flying Squirrel Frisbee, Ruffwear Lunker, tennis ball, and I've never met a woobie/stuffie that I didn't LOVE!

Favorite Food:
My favorite treats are mozzarella cheese, apples, pears, carrots, berries, pumpkin, and bananas. I also LOVE Dr Chew's Sweet Potato Chews! SO YUMMY!

Favorite Walk:
Centennial Trial on the shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene, ID and hiking at Farragut State Park on the shores of Lake Pend Orielle in Idaho by my home. Notice the water theme... ;-)

Best Tricks:
I passed the AKC's Canine Good Citizen Test in July 2004 at only 7 months old!!! As of November 2007, I have also earned my AKC CD title as well as my RN title! Hopefully, 2008 will see me earn my CDX, RA, RE, and RAE titles in both the US and Canada!

Arrival Story:
My Mommy had wanted a Golden ever since she could remember! When the time was right, she did her lots of books, spoke to lots of Golden owners, and attended many dog shows where she finally had the pleasure and luck to meet my breeder. On January 30th 2004, my Daddy made the trek up to my breeder in British Columbia, Canada and brought me home to my Mommy who just worships the ground I walk on. :-)

I come from a long line of heavily titled Goldens. My bio Dad, Suede, is just one of the MANY Showdog Hall of Famers in my pedigree, my bio Mom, Fleury, is a Champion, my Grandad, Brooks, won the Golden Retriever Western Regional (Aug 2003) as well as having been consistently ranked one of the top Goldens in Canada, and my Great Grandad, Kirby, was arguably one of the most revered, renowned, and most heavily and diverse titled Goldens in the history of the breed. I have a lot to live up to but I think I'm up to the challenge. As of November 2007, I have now earned my CD and RN titles. Come the end of 2008, I hope to have both my AKC and CKC CDX, RA, RE, and RAE titles. I also hope to be certified as a Therapy Dog for the Delta Society so that I can visit people and cheer them up! For now, my life consists of training in obedience and rally classes, learning to track, "killing" evil woobies/stuffies, fetching everything possible, trying to convince the cat that he should play with me like another puppy (*sigh* No success with that yet!), eating grass, boating, swimming (did I happen to mention how much I *LOVE* swimming?!?!), hiking, and wrestling with my sister, Sonnet. Life is SOOO goooood!!! WOOF!
