I always thought that Cash was my one in a life time dog, then along came Tim. What can I say, about Tim, 'Wow' would be one word, Blessed is another, Lucky might be another. But I truly do feel blessed to have Tim come into my life. He is truly what a Golden Retriever is all about! Great personality, trainable, gets along with everyone, his desire to please is unquestionable.
In his limited puppy career, he quickly finished his Canadian Championship, he won 3 Puppy Groups, and a Group 3 at 11 months. At 15 months we went stateside to compete in the Puppy Sweepstakes at the US National in 2007. And we came back with Best of Opposite overall under both Bruce McLean, then for overall under Joyce Kinghorn!
At just under 2 years of age he won the B.C Regional Specialty under Bruce McLean! He was a awarded a few Group placements in 2009 with me at the end of the leash. I decided it was time to let Tim go out with a handler. I had scoped them all out, and decided on a newer face Milton Lopes and Tracy Tuff!
With them he has continued to shine and picked up a few more group placings and many Group 1st with a picking up a Reserve Best In Show on the same day he won his 2nd Specialty at the 25th anniversary of the Golden Retriever Club of Alberta! His more recent accolades is winning back to back Group Firsts at Canada's Largest Indoor Show at Lower Mainland!
In 2010, Tim headed south with his new friends Milton & Tracy and in a tough Portland competition, he came home with 2 Reserve Major wins the first 2 days under Michael Faulkener, then went Winners Dog for a 4 point Major under Cheryl Shaw, on the last day under Dana Cline he went Best of Breed, and then competed in the group ring and brought home a Group 3 placing behind the 2 top Sporting dogs in the US for his 2nd major over 5!
A major accomplishment was Tim taking Best of Winners at the American Golden Retriever National in 2010.
Tim recently finished his American Championship under Connie Gerstner on January 17, 2012.
Tim is producing beautiful offspring with fabulous temperments. I lovingly call them 'Timbits'. Tim is available for stud to approved bitches.

The opportunity came along to breed Tim to a beautiful bitch from Brazil in 2010. Who knew what an amazing litter these two would produce. Liam's show career started off slow, but he finished his Canadian Championship in two consecutive weekends. His last weekend as a puppy he was awarded BPIG, BOS and BOW under Mike Macbeth. The same day he was awarded WD under Denise Cornelson at the Grande Prairie Kennel Club show. His next show weekend just a couple of weeks later, he finished his Canadian Championship on Fri. July 15, 2011 with BOW under Barbara Heal. Liam then went on to win Best in Sweepstakes at the Golden Retriever Club of Alberta's Specialty, held in conjunction with Canada's largest outdoor dog show, the Alberta Kennel Club's Summer Classic. He has always been owner handled by his 'Mom', Corrie Horne.
Liam is maturing into a handsome young man. He is now training for Rally Obedience, Obedience, Agility and soon for the field. Watch for this young man in all of the various rings in 2012.
