Our family's love of dogs started with a Lab/Newfoundland cross named Goofy. A few years later we decided to add a Black Lab as well. His name was Einstein.
Unfortunately Einstein went to sleep one night and didn't wake up. He was only 2 1/2yrs. This broke our hearts, but no-one more so than Goofy, who started to take a Teddy bear to bed with him. We started thinking that perhaps we should add another dog to the clan.
After much research it was settled that a Golden Retriever was for us. We then needed to find a breeder. We spoke with a few breeders but we felt really comfortable with Jane Boston (Bozgold Goldens). She had a litter due in a few days.
We brought home a gorgeous girl and called her Tilly (Bozgold Waltzing Matilda). She settled in really well and it wasn't long before she was the boss of Goofy and probably the rest of us as well.
At a puppy day run by the NSW Golden Retriever Club we met some people that have been around the breed for years. Many of them thought Tilly was really nice and may do well in the show ring.
Jane was happy to change Tilly to Main Register and we entered our first shows. After that first weekend we were hooked.
Soon one Goldie grew to two, then three and now we have six. This includes Tilly's two sons and daughter. Poor Goofy is now surrounded by blondes.
We have met some great friends while showing and our two daughters love junior handling. Many of our friends were in Taree the weekend Tilly got her Championship Title. We were so thrilled to title our first ever Show Dog.
Since then we have helped Tilly raise her first and were over the moon when they were able to go to their new homes. We still keep in touch with all of the families with photos and emails.
We hope you enjoy our site.
