Happy 4th of July! Even the Goldens got into the Patriotic spirit. Shown here is Ebba Charlotte (Horsfall) in her best bonnet.


What a way to start off a puppy career! Fred, aka Masters Top Hat N Tails (from Eliza and Rolex's litter), in 17 shows entered in the 6-9 month puppy dog class, he has been awarded 16 1st places, 4 Reserve Winners Dog wins, and 5 Winners Dog wins (for 1 championship point each) and 4 Best of Winners wins. Can't wait to see what happens over the next 3 months!

And, not to be left out, Miss Mickie (Masters Futura Emm Eye Cee, from Samantha and Jett's litter) started her career on an equally exciting note. Shown 8 times to date in the 6 to 9 month puppy bitch class, she has been awarded 8 first place wins, 2 Reserve Winners Bitch wins, and 3 Winners Bitch wins (at 1 championship point each).

Michi can now add a TDX to her list of titles! Huge congrats to Mary Ann on this terrific accomplishiment on such a young dog!

Her first weekend out at 6 months of age, she won Reserve Winners Bitch, Best Puppy and a Puppy Group 1. Michi finished out 2010 winning 2 points at the San Mateo Egg Nog Circuit. Kicking off 2011 with a bang, Michi won back to back at the Golden Gate Kennel Club, handled by Jennifer. She picked up 4 more points towards her championship, and won a Best Of Opposite Sex over champions of record. A few weeks later, Michi was tested for Tracking, and PASSED her first attempt! So, she now sports a TD title behind her name.


Woo Hoo!!! Hearty Congratulations go out to Star and Suzanne, Musicur and FiveStar Goldens, and Laurie Fenner, BlackNGold Kennels, who's Tag daughter BlackNGold's Fashionista (aka "Posh") won 2 points towards her Championship at the Shoreline DFA of Orange County show 12/10/10. Posh has several BOSS wins as a puppy, so it is no surprise that she joins several other siblings in winning the points. This brings Tag's pointed get to just the first few litters he has sired. Watch for Tag to earn the GRCA Outstanding Sire designation soon.

Great weekend in Ventura! Tally won Best Of Winners Saturday, picking up her first major which leaves her with needing only one major (3 points) to finish her AKC Championship. She placed 4th the other two days, so was in the ribbons all weekend. Thank you Elizabeth Nelson for her superb presentation of our Tally.

Henley finished his Rally Novice title and then his Rally Advanced title in 6 straight shows May 2010. A huge thank you to Billy Anderson for his expert training and handling of our Henley. Watch for news of Henley's future obedience escapades.


Monte (Ch Masters Foxfire About Time) celebrated his 13th birthday in style...lots of new stuffed toys, special cookies, and a new bone (as if he needed more, he's so spoiled!).

Masters Move Like Wizzard, RN is home with Luke and Laura from his hunting training with Lakota Retrievers in TX. Laura writes that they are entered in his first Hunting Test the end of April 2010. Laura, Luke and Ozzie continue in the multi-purpose vein with hitting the St Louis GRC Specialty this month, too. Go Team!

Ozzie's sister, Tommi (Masters Futura Move Aside Boys) hit the ring, too, but she had way too much fun to win big time. Oh well, dog shows should always be fun, so we consdier that a big win, too.

Congratulations to Judi Voss and Jane Jensen on the exciting wins on the puppies sired by our "Tag" and out of their girl, "Mindy". Magic (pictured) has recently picked up his first major win, and has been regularly in the ribbons. Not to be left out, his brother "Boo", has also picked up his first major win, to be neck and neck with Magic for the single points.

Chloe, Masters Futura Go For Th'Gold, is now sitting on 7 points and 1 major, and she's not even 2 years old yet! Chloe, owned by Ainah Lee and Jennifer, is shown here winning her major in Palm Springs. This was the second weekend of shows she had been to.

Nice way to kick off 2010. Tally held her own in the tough Pacific Northwest shows, placing in most of her classes. She proceeded to win WB/BOW on Saturday 1/30/10 for 2 points and WB on Sunday 1/31/2010 for another 2 points. This brings her total points up to 8!

Girlie, Masters Futura U Go, Girl (Masterson/Knobbe), won her American Bred class both days at Golden Gate KC shows as well.

Not to be left out, Opal (Cabaret Come Feel The Fire, o: Masterson/Olson/Golden), the beagle, made her debut in the 6 to 9 month puppy class. She won WB for her first championship point on Saturday, RWB on Sunday, and ALSO Best 13-15 " Puppy, and a Puppy Hound Group 3. This is Miss Opal practicing at home.

Dogs sired by our boys also had a great weekend!
Big kudos to Patrica Bass Walker with her Tag son, Britsky (pictured trotting) winning the Bred By Exhibitor Class at the Golden Gate Kennel Club the end of January, and Winners Dog. Particia and Britsky went on to win a Bred By Exhibitor Sporting Group 2. The following day Britsky won Reserve Winners Dog. A very exciting weekend for both! Congrats also to Shannon Oliver/Sue Carpenter on their Tag girl, Teko's I Will Be Heard winning RWB from the puppy class on Saturday and Best Puppy on Sunday.

Henley's puppy daughter, Bubbles (Richards/Hunter), made her debut and placed 2nd both day in a very competitve 6-9 puppy bitch class.

Introducing Chloe, Masters Futura Go For Th'Gold, who is out of the repeat Anthony and Delia breeding. Chloe made her show debut at the San Mateo Christmas/New Years shows, and won Reserve Winners bitch from the Amercian Bred Class. Not bad for having no idea what the dog show game was about, and being overweight, to boot! A week at Camp Fenner, and Chloe snapped into shape. Her next weekend shows in Palm Springs, Chloe won a 4 point major! Congrats to the Lee's on their wins with Chloe!

"Louie" Wyee wondering what he is getting for Christmas. I'm betting it was pretty special!

Congratulations to Ainah and Larry Lee on their girl, Chloe (aka Masters Futura Go For Th'Gold, a Delia and Anthony daughter) winning Reserve WInners Bitch at the San Mateo shows 12/29/09 and her very next weekend out, winning Winners Bitch for a 4 point major in Palm Springs. What a way to start 2010! Stay tuned for photos. Tally, our little Masters Talladega Nights, won Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite 3 of the 4 days of the San Mateo shows 12/27 thru 12/30. This brings her total to 4 points towards her championship.

12/31/09...Finished the year with a BANG during the Cluster By The Bay shows, 12/27 thru 12/30. Our cute little "Tally" won the WB three of the four days, bringing her championship points up to 4. This was followed by multiple class placements through the tough Southern California shows leading into the Eukanuba Cup. And, starting her show career off during the same circuit, "Chloe" (Masters Futura Go For Th'Gold, out of Anthony and Delia and owned by Ainah Lee and Jennifer Masterson) set foot in the ring for the first time. She still has some growing up to do as she is not 2 years old until May, and really did not understand what being a show dog is about, but she did manage to win a Reserve Winners Bitch under judge Joe Tacker on Tuesday. Watch for more good things to come with "Chloe"!

WOW!!! Ozzie (Masters Moving Like A Wizard) earned his RN title this weekend (11/14-11/15) placing 3rd with a 97 both days. Ozzie is just a baby...only 8 months old! Heart felt congratulations to Luke and Laura, and Ozzie :-)

Ozzie, aka Masters Moving Like Wizard, had a great time in the show ring with his friend, Judy. Based on this shot, I would say he was aptly named. On another weekend, he hit the Dock Dog competitons and had embraced his "golden-ness". Awesome water entry, Ozzie! Congrats Luke and Laura on all of Ozzie's accomplishments :-), and kudos to you for all you share with Ozzie.

Mimi, aka Masters Futura Save The Last Dance, hit the show ring with her co-owner Judy in September and won her classes easily. Mimi is out of Anthony and Wendy, and is Wyatt's sister. She's not quite two years old, so when she is a bit more grown up, she will be a frequent siight on the show scene, but for now, Mimi and Judy will just enjoy an occasional weekend out.


Introducing "Clicquot", aka Masters Rich N Famous, CGC. Clicquot started her show career with Team Fenner at the Ventura shows the 4th of July weekend, and what a start she had! Clicquot won both her majors, winning WB at the Channel City KC 7/3/09 and BOW at the Ventura County DFA on 7/5/09. Clicquot is Eliza's sister and co-owned by the Lee's and Jennifer.

Masters Goldens' 3rd Champion (and 2nd Champion for Judy Knobbe, Futura) to finish this year is Emma, now known as Ch. Masters Futura Teko Raz'n Th'Bar! Emma minored out winning 3 of the 4 days at Southern Oregon shows, then picked up back to back majors in Idaho at the Pocatello KC shows.

Way to Go, Eliza! Finishing her Championship at Rio Hondo KC 5/09 going Winners Bitch, Best Of WInners and Best Opposite Sex, then as a move up into Best Of Breed competition the following day, Eliza won the Breed over Specials, and went on to win a Sporting Group 2. All before she is 2 years old! We're very proud of our Miss Eliza.


Eliza won Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a 5 point major under judge Dorothy MacDonald at the Golden Retriever Club Of America Western Regional Specialty in Chino, CA on 4/23/09. That brings Eliza up to 14 points with both majors, all awarded in less than 2 months. Her first major was awarded winning a Sporting Group 1 under judge Mr Robert Stein at the Del Sur Kennel Club show, after winning Best Of Breed over 4 Specials. Thank you to Elizabeth Jordan Nelson and Laurie Fenner for such incredible presentation and care of our Miss Eliza!


Samantha (Futura Masters Bee Witched) can now add the CH in front of her name, as she finshed her championship winning Winners Bitch at the Golden Retriever Club Of San Diego Specialty Show on 2/20/09 under judge Mr. Terry Stacy. What an exciting way to finish by winning at a Specialty. Thank you to Pam Lamby for handling Samantha to her finish for the Fenners, Judy Knobbe and I.


"Radar" Palmer, aka Masters Futura The Last Precinct, on his first birthday celebrating his first birthday with a romp in the woods. What Golden wouldn't think that was the best birthday present ever? Well, maybe an added cookie or two :-)

Maggie, aka Masters Golden Maggie Mae, NA, NAJ, is out of our Ch Masters Million Dollar Smile and Ch Feara's Destiny Kodiak Kidd, SDHF, OS.

Emma, Masters Futura Teko Raz'n Th'Bar, who is out of our Anthony and Delia, won Winners Bitch at the Sacramento Dog Fanciers show in October 2008. She was shown by her co-owner, Shannon Oliver, Teko Goldens. Emma has been shown on a limited basis, but is regularly "in the ribbons". Way to go Shannon and Emma!
