Blitz & Striker
Zest is always ready to go, beside me in all walks of life. She's like the energizer bunny never running out of energy unless it's to rest at my feet til we go again. Zest has good structure and angulation, she’s 21-1/2” tall, weighing approx. 52 lbs. She's excelled in obedience earning perfect 200 scores and NOI invitations. Zest loves to perform, she's a dream come true in obedience and, I’m sure if we ever tried agility, she’d be good at that also. She jumps like a deer and runs like the wind. All littermates have passed all health clearances (see Freebie Pups page), they have great structure, temperaments, are extremely agile & active dogs with superior intelligence and a natural desire to please.
Rusty has proven to be a confident, hard-driving dog in field work (qualified & ran in the 2009 AKC Master National). Rusty has also done wonderfully in competition obedience. Rusty has his CDX title and is trained for Utility. Rusty has a very balanced temperament making him a joy to be around, not only with people but also with other dogs. He's very similar to his dad, Speaker, with the same good looks, structure and temperament. Rusty’s natural eye contact shows his tremendous desire to please in all walks of life. When not working in the field or in obedience, you can find Rusty looking up a tree for squirrels or in his owner’s lap.
His Dad is AFC-AFTCH Rosehill’s Mr. Speaker MH, OS, FDHF, and CCA. Speaker is one of the top producing field goldens who's also earned his CCA (Conformation Assessment) from the GRCA. In February 2009, Speaker celebrated his 15th birthday!
Rusty’s Mom is OTCH, HRCH, River Ranch Grace with Style UDX, SH, MX, AXJ, RAE, WCX, OD. Grace is extremely intelligent, loveable dog and loves to perform in the obedience ring.
