Proud Papa Brags

"Like the music of the mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
They’re a promise of the future
And a blessing for today"
John Denver

We are very proud of all Brogan's kids and their accomplishments.  But, most importantly, we feel truly blessed that his puppies are in such wonderful, loving homes.  

BROGAN

*A Derby stake is open to all retrievers that are at least six months of age and which are not yet two years of age on the first day of the trial. Both amateurs and professionals may handle dogs in Derby stakes. The dogs in a Derby are tested on marked retrieves both land and water. While the dogs must exhibit sufficient training to deliver to hand and be reasonably steady on line, the emphasis is on natural abilities related to marked retrieves. Typically a Derby stake will consist of four tests, two on land and two on water, each a set of double marked retrieves.

The future of the Golden Retriever rests with the sires and dams that produce each successive generation. In recognition of their contributions to the breed, the Golden Retriever Club of America awards the titles of Outstanding Sire (OS) and Outstanding Dam (OD) to Golden Retrievers whose offspring reflect the breed’s character and purpose. This degree of excellence is evidenced by the earned AKC and GRCA titles of these offspring. Those Goldens whose offspring earn the required number of points (as determined by the GRCA) through these earned titles will be awarded the title of Outanding Sire (OS) and Outstanding Dam (OD).

A huge congratulations to Laurie and Yankee who earned the coveted Triathlon Award at the National!!!

If you would like to learn more about this award (and see how difficult it is), please read the excerpt below taken from the GRCA rules.
 


“In recognition of the versatility of the Golden Retriever, and to encourage owners to showcase that versatility by participating in multiple areas of competition at the National and Regional specialty shows, GRCA is instituting a "Triathlon Award" for dogs which meet the following criteria: The dog/bitch must compete and receive either a placement or qualifying performance in each of the three areas provided for as follows: Conformation (placement in regular, non-regular, or sweepstakes class or a Judges Award of Merit in Best of Breed competition; or passing scores from two evaluators at the CCA test.); Field (pass either the WC or WCX test; pass any level in a hunt test, place or receive a Judge's Award of Merit in any stake in a field trial); and Performance (pass a tracking test, obtain a qualifying score in any regular or non-regular obedience, agility trial or rally class). The required combination of placements, Judge's Award of Merit, or passes must be received on the same individual dog at the same National or Regional specialty event.”

One of the proudest moments for me was watching Brogan in the Stud Dog Class.  It was a difficult decision to choose which two of his kids would represent him, but we finally decided on Matthew and Dublin. 

Thank you to Joan Cleary for showing Brogan, Judy Super for showing her boy Matthew, and Jane Docter for showing my boy Dublin.

They looked fantastic in there and it was a very proud Grandma Moment.  🙂
