Rep: 18 3 goldens is on a distinguished road
Unique Rep: 4

Hello and welcome from the great state of Texas. I am Sandra and I live down on the coast with my hubby of 51 years and our 9 year old Great Pyrenees, Moose, and our 12 1/2 year old golden retriever, Sophie. Both of our sons live within 5 miles of us,, as do our grand children, the oldest being our grandson who will turn 17 next week.

I grew up in a family of quail hungers and was always surrounded by English Setters and pointers. My frist several dogs were English Setters. One day a lost Irish Setter, no collar, showed up looking in the window at me. No flyers, no ads in the paper, I kept him. He was so well trained so well mannered, so gentle and friendly I knew he had been well loved at some point. Upon his death 8 years later, I got an Irish Setter puppy and had Boots for 12 1/2 years.

When Boots was 9, our older son who was stilt at, home, got a golden retriever to train as a duck retriever. We have a total of 6 goldens, including the adopted one we he now. Also to throw into the mix, when our 13+ year old golden died, we adopted a blind Great Pyrenees and upon his death, got the one we have now. These are the only breed dogs I know anything about, but have had many medical issures with them from luxting patella to allergies, cancer to fatty tumors, and much more.
Hunter...forever in my heart
Goldens bring light into the world.
