Please contact me for information regarding litters sired by Gordie.
Gordie is a good size boy, about 23 1/2" and 75 pounds. He is well balanced with nice front and rear angulation, has an outstanding front assembly and great spring of rib, is clean coming and going, and has a lot of neck and good leg under him. Gordie's side gait is effortless and fluid. His pigment is jet black at 5 years old, and he started getting sugar on his face around 4 1/2. Gordie is an old style golden retriever, with correct coat of a medium gold with light furnishings. Nothing about Gordie is overdone; this is a dog that could be working outside all day, and not need more than a bath to get ring ready. Many of Gordie's CH and GCH points have been breeder/owner handled and under GRCA breeder judges, judges who breed goldens, and at specialties and supported entries. He finished his CH with three majors. Gordie got his RN and RA with no NQs, and with very little training. He has an on/off switch, and has a good bit of goofball in him - he is just a very happy dog who loves it when he is given a job to do. Gordie is a proven stud, who breeds naturally and collects very, very well. He has had several large litters. Recent litters are really lovely and consistent overall, with hard level toplines, fantastic fronts with great shoulder assemblies and prosternum, and beautiful heads. His pups are starting to earn titles, and we look forward to watching them all mature!
Gordie finished 2019 as the #7 NOHS golden after spending some months at #5, in limited showing throughout the year.
Oban is out of my GCH Cuddy, and is AKC pointed. He had 2 Best 4-6 month Puppy in All-Breed Show wins at just barely 4 months old. I have high hopes for this lovely boy as he matures! He is a moderate dog, with a beautiful straight coat of a darker medium gold. I have loved his fluid movement from the beginning, and look forward to summer shows and big rings. He is balanced, with a beautiful shoulder assembly and strong rear. My junior usually shows him in the breed ring, and put his win on him. He got his Rally Novice title two days past his nine month birthday with no formal training, and was awarded his first Rally Intermediate leg with almost no training at all a day later. He got very high scores including a 100 on the way to his RI at 14 months, and qualified for the 2020 AKC Rally National Championship in Intermediate. Oban is attentive in the Rally ring, and incredibly easy to train.

Bucky got his first AKC CH points at 11 months. He is a substantial boy, about 23 3/4”, with fantastic bone and a very nice front, including a lot of prosternum and great length of upper arm. Buck has a gorgeous, correctly textured, wavy dark gold coat and lots of undercoat. He is short coupled, balanced, and a nice mover. He has a lot of leg and a rock solid top line, and good depth of chest and spring of rib. He also has a gorgeous head with a super stop and neat ears. Buck had great pigment from the moment he was born, and it’s jet black at a year old. Bucky has a great personality, and is energetic and happy in training. He’s all in no matter what you ask him to do, whether breed ring, field training, or just retrieving bumpers in the yard. He won BOB and Sporting Group 1 in 4-6 month puppy competition 2 days after his 4 month birthday, and again at just over 5 months. This boy will be a fun one!
