“Sport” went to the National Specialty and qualified for her WC title amongst other things. She also placed First in Novice Bitch in Conformation. Along with qualifying as a Triathalon Golden based on the GRCA’s requirements. WOW!!! Way to GO Sporty!!!! Congrats to You!

  • Trumpet’s Elk Hair Caddis JH – “Radcliffe” – CoOwner/H: Charlotte Gaynor – Golden Retriever Male

“Radcliffe” completed his Junior Hunter title at the Sacramento Valley Retriever Club Test held 9/28/2007. For those of us who know “Radcliffe” there isn’t a sweeter person in hairy clothing to come by. He also enjoys his birds very much. Which has helped him through his tests despite very limited amount of training. Bred by Charlotte and co-owned “Radcliffe” has a very nice family who borrowed him to Charlotte to train whenever possible,to reach this goal of JH. Radcliffe intends to enjoy lots of R & R now with his family. Congratulations to you Both!!

  • Rockyhill’s Roc’s Red Glare JH – “FireTruck” – O/H: Xan Latta – Liver Flat Coat Male

“Firetruck” roared out like his name implies and picked up his JH Title like a “Man On A Mission”. Travelling from the Sierra Nevadas, to Oroville and Southern California along the way. Titling in Southern Cal at the Inland Valley Retriever Club test 9/22/2007. With limited training while studying for the Bar Exam they still managed to squeeze in time to pick up those four orange ribbons. Xan has much to be happy about. “Firetruck” is proving to be all that she has hoped for. Their next goal is Senior Hunter and already working on handling basics and multiples is going very nicely. Congratulations!!!!

  • Ch. Rockyhill’s Western Wishes JH – “Leila”- O/H: Xan Latta – Black Flat Coat Female

“Leila” the speed demon, raced through her JH Title with style and attitude to die for. Finishing at the Inland Valley Retriever Club HT on 9/22/2007. This little black flat coat bitch has surpassed all expectations in her ability to mark and learn new things. Always in tune with working with Xan. They are planning to go on into Senior Hunter. “Leila” shows great promise, already doing multiples, and basic handling nicely, she is a very fun girl to work with. Good Job!!!

  • Int. CH Hyegold Midsumr Knights Dream, CDX,TDX,RE,JH,WC,VCX – “Finn” – O/h: Suzanne Bria – Golden Retriever Male

“Finn” completed his JH Title at the NorCal Golden Retriever Club Hunt Test 9/8/2007. How very fitting he finished his title at our Club’s Annual Hunt Test! In addition, “Finn” also passed his WC at the National Specialty (he is now a double qualifier of the WC Title!). “Finn” came to me some time ago. He showed he was able to mark very well, (although we had two types of marking “Finn” showed me he enjoyed, one of which, we made every effort to train him away froM!!!), and he loved the water. “Finn” has a high trainability factor that helps him to do anything he is asked to do once he understands what it is you want. He has been a very fun dog to work with because of this. Suzanne on the other hand (as do many of us) had some issues with trainability that I had to overcome. However, safe to say, Suzanne has come a long way in a short amount of time in field with “Finn”. Her handling skills have improved 100%. I do hope they will choose to go on. Congratulations to you both!!!
