Tanner finished his championship with 11 points from breeder judges including both majors. Thanks to judges Connie Gerstner Miller, Robert L. Robinson, Dana P. Cline, Suzanne Hemminger, Jane P. Jensen, Maureen Shaughnessy DVM, Eugene Blake and Gloria Kerr for recognizing Tanner.
Tanner as a Class Dog
Tanner was bred by Chris Miele (Cross Creek Goldens).
Tanner is a true type Golden Retriever, 24 inches tall and approximately 80 lbs. Being from slow maturing lines, Tanner didn’t fully mature and show his full potential until he was 7+ years old and continues to look great well into his veteran years.
HEAD: Overall typical English type head but requires a little more stop and greater depth of muzzle.
MOUTH: Full dentition and scissor bite.
EYES: Dark with good pigmentation.
COAT: Excellent coat texture (slightly coarse top coat and soft thick undercoat.)
CONFORMATION: Good length of neck that flows into a strong level topline and tail set. Shoulders are well laid back, resulting in correct front angulation. The overall picture is one of a well balanced dog with the rear matching the front.
MOVEMENT: Given the above, the movement is powerful with excellent reach and drive.
Tanner has been shown on a very limited basis as a Special but has had some great results. In Tanner’s second weekend as a Special he was BOB and Sporting Group 2 – thank you judge Eugene Blake. At the 2011 GRCA National Tanner gave us our biggest thrill to date by going 1st JAM – thank you breeder judge Barbara Pepper. Tanner continues to be shown on a limited basis
