Specializing in Breeding and Training Golden Retrievers for 40 Years.


Hi Barb-


I’m sorry we haven’t checked in for so long!  Hilde (Ivy and Captain) is doing great.  She passed her therapy dog test last winter and we have been volunteering at a junior high.  We are working in a class with kids who have emotional and behavioral difficulties.  Hilde has brought out some amazing changes in these kids.  I was so surprised at how well she did and how much the kids responsed to her.


imageShe is 6 years old now.  She is still full of energy and ready for anything.  She has spent the summer hiking, swimming and getting nice and scruffy.  She has to stay pretty well groomed to go to “work” but in the summer we figure almost anything goes.

I have attached a picture of her after a swim.

Hope your summer was great!
