There are females available in this litter. They will be ready to go to their new homes March 12.
We are also taking applications for our later spring
litters. We will have puppies available that will be born in March and ready
for their new homes in May. If you are interested please fill out
a puppy application and we will call you for a phone interview within a week
to answer any questions you have and explain a little more about the process
of getting a Rolling Oaks Golden!

Merry Christmas from Rolling Oaks!

We just mailed out the Christmas cards from Rolling Oaks Goldens. If you did not receive one in the next week
but would like to, please email me your mailing address.

This Christmas season has been exceptionally busy here at Rolling Oaks. Our
fourth litter is leaving this week end. What a joy it has been to hand over
all these healthy, happy puppies to their new owners. But, not without a
price! I couldn’t make Thanksgiving dinner because Milly’s puppies were
leaving and it was Emmy’s puppy visit. Our oldest daughter Christie and her
husband came and made the entire meal and helped us test the puppies to
determine their personalities. Our daughter Anna came home with her husband
and they cleaned the whole  house and put up some Christmas decorations. No
tree this year. Not that I am the Grinch, just didn’t have time. So here it
is, just a few days before Christmas with no baking done, no shopping done
or gifts wrapped. No tree or Christmas lights. None of our personal
Christmas cards have been sent. Do I sound desperate?  I am not. Kelly
ordered all the grandkids their gifts online and they are being delivered
right to my door! The cards will get sent, maybe a little late, but that’s
okay. The baking, well, no guarantees there, but Dove makes some amazing
chocolate and Schwan’s has excellent peppermint ice cream!

I am overwhelmed with gratitude not only for my family this season, but for
my business. Yes, Russ and I have been pushed over the edge with exhaustion.
There have been some high stress moments, but the times when I bring a
litter into a room full of students and am greeted with shrills of
excitement, or a lounge filled with elderly people who can’t wait to hold
and kiss a puppy…or the look on the new owners face when I say “this is
your puppy” all make up for it. The interaction between my grandchildren and
the puppies is priceless. Each puppy got held every single day. Each puppy
had one on one time with a human to determine if it was a calm or playful
pup. Each puppy was loved.

I am looking forward to the weekend after Christmas when all of our family
will be home and I can rock and sing to our new little granddaughter Aria
and bring the older kids out on the ice with the dogs. When people ask me if
I am ready for Christmas, I can reply “I am”!

I am posting a few of the moments captured from the last two and a half

Barb and Daniel,

We just wanted to report back on the eve of Happy’s Birthday how much we
adore her.  She gave us a run for our money for a while there (a spirited
pup), but a week with Daniel and doubling down on intentional training at
home has gotten us past that stage.  We are actually having a little
birthday party with her closest friends after the bus delivers the kids home
tomorrow…  She is such a social dog that plays well with others.  Everyone
comments she is well suited to her name!  Here’s a few pics from the year:
Happy is a Nali/Champ puppy.

Here are our two boys; Blake (11.5) and Sawyer (2.5)-

DSC05072Sawyer continues to be the best dog we’ve ever had and would ever hope to  have!!

He’s beautiful, loving, caring and a fantastic pal for an only child like Blake!!  Just checking

in to let you know that all is perfect in our world with Sawyer!!  We just can’t thank you

enough for picking the perfect puppy for US out of his litter (Finny/Hazel 2012).

Best dog on Earth…hands down—(guess I’ll have some folks fighting me on that one J)

Doug, Steph, Blake and Sawyer

Hi Barb!  Quincy (Hazel/Champ) is fabulous!!!  Retirement is also fabulous!  I get to be home LOTS, which is my favorite thing.  There’s no place like home.  Quincy probably gets sick of me.

He is THE SWEETEST dog.  So cuddly and loveable.  We asked for a mellow one and we sure got it!  He’s been just perfect Barb!  Thanks so much for the wonderful breeding. I’m attaching some more recent photos; just took them today. Hope all is well with you and yours!

DSC_2354Good Morning Barb,

I wanted to send you a recent shot of our beautiful boy Cooper (Champ/Hazel). He is such a joy in our life.  Jay and I both comment how much we truly love him. He is 16 mos. now and has fallen in love with our 10 acre hobby farm even picking his own cucumbers and zucchini throughout the summer;)

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you and the entire Rolling Oaks team.

Jay and Kristin
