A lot has transpired over the past 4 years, the saddest being the loss of my mom, Helen Howard. But we got to live together for her last 5 years and I learned many lessons of love and forgiveness; I miss her dreadfully. We also lost several of our old dogs during this time multiplying our sadness. Then the pandemic hit and all dog shows in CA stopped, taking away the joy of showing our beautiful Goldens. But time does heal somewhat and that is why I am so happy to announce “Tesla” won a 3 point major at the Black Mountain KC dog show in Henderson, NV on Oct. 17, my daughter’s birthday! Now we are counting the days until she comes in season to be bred (see the Puppies page).
After a rough year we can finally celebrate a beautiful litter of 10! “V” and CH Premiere’s In A New York Minute ( Ty) are the proud parents of 7 boys and 3 girls. Mom and babies doing great!!
What an exciting month! JAVA is a Champion!! She finished at the Malibu KC show Dec. 11 at the same show on the same date as her cousin, CH Musicur’s Pick Up Line (Blair) did 5 years earlier! So she is now known as CH Five Star Musicur’s Jitter Juice.
But that wasn’t all! Java’s little sister, Maddie AKA Musicur’s Mau Di Tah, was Reserve! (Owned by Cheyenne Kruse) So we had to have a sisters pic:
Java & Maddie
THEN…..a few days later on Dec. 14 sister Payden AKA CH Five Star N Walker’s Escapade flew to Florida for the National Championship shows. The first day was hosted by Space Coast KC and “Baby Payden”, as her owner Toyomi Tsumura calls her, became a “big girl” by beating over 100 Goldens for Best of Breed honors!! Wow, Wow, Wow!!! She went on to win 3 Select honors, one being at the actual Eukanuba Nat’l Championship show!
We are over the moon proud of our Freedom/Boogie daughters!!!
“Java” is pointed!! After a short stint at Camp Schultz she went to Arizona and won her first points in the form of a BOW major, just as her mom did! Then a couple weeks later she went to Primm, Nevada and went back-to-back WB for 2 more points! We are very excited about this pretty girl!
We’ve had a long hiatus since our last shows as all our dogs went down to their “undies” during the hot, hot summer. But having grown their beautiful coats back we all travelled to fabulous Palm Springs Jan. 2016 to show at the LA Golden Retriever Specialty, So. Cal Sporting Dog Specialty, and Palm Springs KC shows. Four glorious days of “waves of gold”! “Payden” won her 12-18 class 3 of the four days, “Java” won 4 2nds and 2 other placements and “Paisley” pulled off a 2nd on the last day. So proud of our girls after being away from the show ring for months!! But the BIG news is times 2! “Maddie”, the girls little sister from the repeat breeding, won the 4-6 month baby class against 10 other puppies!! This was her first show!! SO proud of her! She is owned by Cheyenne Kruse.
Then, over in the obedience ring, “Jessie” and Gerri were setting a blistering pace in Novice B winning qualifying scores of 198, 195 and 198 which finished their CD title and qualified them for a Dog World award!! Way to go!! So very proud of you guys! “Jessie” is formally known as Musicur Regal Gold Shameless CGC, CD and is owned and adored by Gerri Monohan & Mary Fry.
