Rip or is from our River & Swift's first litter. She has an exuberant outgoing fun personality and although she was named before she was born her name suits her so well!  She loves to Rip around the yard in full flight usually playing catch me if you can with some prize she found in her mouth.   Rip had her first litter to Danny and then decided for herself to have her second litter to our lovely boy Valley.  She doesn't do anything by halves!   Our gorgeous girl got pyometra and had to be desexed.  Rip is now retired and has a wonderful life doing obedience with her new family  and playing with other goldens.

Sadly Sam passed away  much to early in a tragic accident.


My parting has left you with a void
Please fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss.

Be not burdened with ties of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, you've given so much
Your time, your love your gentle touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your head and share with me
Great memories, I am now free.
