Can OTCH, U-CD Wynwood's Sheza Special Lady Am/Can UD

sheza1Sheza came to me from Renee Schulte, Wynwood Kennels. She was from Renee's famous litter of 8 puppies out of Duke x Abbey who all obtained their UDs and many their OTCHs.  Sheza heeled next to me with her eyes fixed on me from the time she was 7 weeks old.  She was a joy to train, so easy to teach, and the kind of dog that really makes you look good.  Sheza earned many Dog World Awards for her titles.  Eight High in Trials in Canada.  Sheza produced an OTCH dog and several UD dogs, making her a GRCA Outstanding Dam.  Everyone should be blessed with a dog like this in their obedience career.


Am/Can Ch. Wingate's Allmylove Allmykiss'n NA, OAJ - Buddy

buddyxsBuddy was bred by Barb Madrigrano, Wingate Kennels.  He is out of Ch. Signatures Natural Wonder x Ch. Goodtime's Ruling Passion.  It was love at first sight when I saw this puppy. Buddy finished his championship easily, owner handled at 18 months of age with a Group 1 win from the classes.  He went on to obtain 15 other group placements including another Group 1, all owner handled with the exception of one Group 4 with a handler.  Buddy took me places I had never dreamed would be possible in the world of showing in breed competition.  He also love to do agility.  Unfortunately, or time together was taken by liver cancer which took him from me at the age of 5. I look back now and see how blessed I was to have the opportunity to share my life with this beautiful dog! Buddy doing what he loved, snuggling with me at our first National Speicalty together.  Here is a picture of Buddy, just prior to winning the Manitoba Sporting Dog Specialty in Winnipeg Canada.  To date, he is the only dog to win that from the classes!


Am/Can/BIS SKC International Ch. Aylwyn's Triple Suspense Am/Can CDX - Spencer

spencerSpencer was given to me by Jerry and Laurie Stecker - Alywyn Kennels.  He was my first Champion dog.  The day after Spencer finished his Championship - owner/handled at the huge summer shows in Waukesha, he won Best of Breed and a Group placement.  My proudest moment was when he won back to back Best in Shows at an International breed competition in California.  One of his judges was from Russia.  We were also able to prove that Spencer could learn obedience - his top score was 199 1/2 out of a possible 200!  Spencer was a beautiful, noble golden retriever.

U-CDX, U-ACHX Argo's Witchy Woman UDX, RAE4, MX, MXJ, AXP, AJP, VCD2, WC, Can CDX, RN, OAC, NJC, NGC, RS-N, RL2 - AKC-CKC HIT winner - Sabrina

PischkeSabrinaWhen Sandy Foster wanted to breed her Becky - Ch. Argo's Thinks It's Easy CD, JH to my Buddy - Am/Can Ch. Wingate Allmylove Allmykiss'n NA, OAJ, I just knew that I wanted a stud puppy and Sabrina was it. The first obedience trial we entered was in Canada where she took High in Trial at the first show! Sabrina was my first Utility Dog Excellent, my first Master Agility Excellent Standard & Jumpers, and my first Rally Advanced Excellent title holder. Sabrina amassed over 50 titles in her career - giving me her all in every one. She competed in performance events for 11 years in a row, and won over 100 first place ribbons. But, the best part of about Sabrina was her loving, sweet temperament! Sabrina was my foundation for Cima Golden Retrievers.

Can/UKC Ch., U-CD Cima's Mind Yur P's and Q's Am/Can CDX, RE, WC, VCX, R-L2, Can RA - Bertha

BerthacanadaBertha was a very special girl, from my girl Sabrina.  She was a little more of an independent spirit, but excelled in conformation, obedience, rally and field work.  Once she understood the "game" she was more than willing to please you.  She produced several nice litters and was the mother of two champion dogs and a TDX dog.
