Tuppence - Shadow - Kula - Sherry - Autumn

I am a dog lover who fell in love with this beautiful breed when I was a child in England. If you would like to read the story of the animals in my life please go to the My Life with Animals page.

Golden Retriever Grooming - I provide a grooming service for Golden Retrievers in the Lower Hutt/Wellington area. Please go to the Grooming Your Golden page for more information.

The golden retrievers in the above photograph are Tuppence, Shadow, KulaSherry and Autumn, with Phoenix laying down in front. Unfortunately our dear sweet Phoenix passed over the Rainbow Bridge in September 2016 at the ripe old age of 14 years, 8 months. However, she is still very much in our hearts and minds and it is very hard to think about the fact that she is no longer with us. My website will still tell the story of Phoenix because she was the most beautiful first golden for me to own and was the reason I wanted to have more of them. I can't thank her enough for the lessons she taught me and the loyalty only a dog can give even when the human is less than perfect.

Kula was born in 2003 and is a really loving dog who is my only real retriever at the moment (due either to the other four's obstinance or my bad training). She loves nothing more than to swim in the river or sea fetching as many sticks as I can throw for her. In 2007, Kula had a beautiful litter of puppies and we kept one female who we named Shadow. She is a real character and is such fun to be with. She is so enthusiastic about her people and yet she has the loveliest nature. Shadow had a litter of 7 puppies in April 2010 and we have kept one of those, Sherry. We added an item to the News page each day from the day the puppies were born to the time they left us. There are loads of photos and videos of these puppies and some stories of them growing up. Go to the News page to see these stories and more. Sherry gave birth to two female puppies on 16 June 2015 - Autumn and Tuppence. Only having two in the litter made it impossible for us to part with one, so, although we had only wanted to keep one, we found ourselves with the two naughties!

If you want to find out more about each of these beautiful dogs, please go to their page to learn more.

Shadow, Sherry and Autumn are breed champions. Sherry did compete in championship obedience competitions up to Test A level and has gained the CDX title. However, when Autumn and Tuppence came along it was too much to continue training Sherry and the puppies and so she is retired from the obedience ring. Tuppence is a very smart dog and at the present time is in training and hopefully one day I will get her into the obedience ring. Go to their individual pages to learn more about them. 

Goldens are wonderful pets - they are loyal, friendly and good with children . I hope you like mine and get your own one day!
