Dreams really do come true...
and I’m living mine.
My love for goldens began when I was 12 years old. I had golden retriever note cards, calendar, pictures, books, t-shirt and even a life sized stuffed animal...always dreaming of the day I had a real live golden retriever. At age 15 I got my first golden retriever that I named Dixie, she was a rescue. After working through some fears she had from her former life she became my loyal sidekick and best friend. We had many amazing adventures together. My love for goldens continued to deepen with every year that passed. I married my wonderful husband in 2017 and we got our first family dog. I was so excited as this was my first time getting a golden puppy. So Bella joined our family and became the best dog we could ask for. She showed us just how amazing this breed can be. So smart (learning every command after only a few times being told), so loyal, and so gentle.
Now our family has grown to include Lance ,Pearl and Zircon. They make life interesting and full of fun as they each have a little different personality but they all hold true to the wonderful temperament any golden retriever owner will tell you you’ll find in this breed. Our goal as breeders is to offer puppies with only the very best temperaments by breeding only dogs that posses that temperament. Also, we strive to do what we can to further the health and genetics of the breed itself.
We live on a small 30 acre farm in Iron Ridge, WI that is part of a bigger family run organic dairy farm operation in Rubicon, WI. Milking about 75 cows daily and farming about 600 acres. Our dogs love the farm life. On our farm we house and care for the weaned calves, raise 20 pigs each Summer, and have about 40 chickens. Lance shocked us one day when the calves got out by instinctively herding them back in like he’d been doing it his whole life, it’s fun to discover their unique strengths. Bella does daily routine checks on the cows and pigs (the pigs are her favorite as they nuzzle her fur and give her little massages, she stands happily panting as if they are best friends, it’s pretty cute to watch). Pearl rarely leaves our sides and is happy to just sit and watch the world go by. It’ll be fun to see where Zircon will fit in when he gets a little bigger. Life is filled with trips to the pond, walks through the fields, and lots of animals to play with. We see lots of wagging tails and happy doggy smiles.
