Ash as a
Ash had a very nice Puppy Sweeps career. He went Best in Sweeps at the Palo Verde GRC Specialty from the 9-12 class and went Best Opposite Sex in Sweeps at the Central Oklahoma GRC Specialty from the 15-18 class. Ash’s major puppy sweeps win was at the 2008 GRCA National Sweepstakes with a 3rdplace in the 12-15 class.
Ash showed his potential in the 6-9 puppy class with a class win at his first show under Breeder Judge Gloria Kerr and again at the GRCA Western Regional with a 6-9 month Class win under Breeder Judge Ainslie Mills. He also received RWD (major) from the Bred By Class at Terry-All KC under Breeder Judge Bernadette Cox in April 2009. Ash wasn’t shown for the next 12 months – upon his return it wasn’t long (May 2010) before he gained his first 2 pts going WD &BOW at Coronado KC, followed by another 2 pts with a WD, BOW & BOS at Central Wyoming KC. In July 2010 he was WD at Buckhorn Valley KC and WD & BOW at Roaring Fork KC. In June 2011 Ash received his first major going WD and BOW at Five Valley KC and in September 2011 he received that second major going WD and BOW at Evergreen KC. To top off Ash’s show career he won the 2011 Mile High Golden Retriever Club Beaumaris Traveling Trophy awarded to the top class dog of the year. Ash is now retired from the show ring and enjoying hanging out with Joe and Becky.

HEAD: Ash has a head to die for, the expression and shape are what the breed standard quotes.
MOUTH: Full dentition and scissor bite.
EYES: Dark eyes and black pigmentation add to his outstanding look.
COAT: Coat is a breeders delight because of the excellent texture, color and the coat always lays flat.
CONFORMATION: Is very balanced with outstanding neck into shoulder. Great lay back and fore chest. Looking from the side you can see his outstanding substance.
