We began our adventure in goldens in June 1979 when we picked out a red-gold puppy from a litter sired by Digger, Pluis Davern's beautiful and bright boy.  Dream introduced us to all aspects of golden activities from puppy raising to obedience to breeding to the field.  She tolerated my inept training attempts in obedience and, in spite of me, got her American CD when she was just over a year--in three trials, with placements.  And all I had done was read a book about obedience--no matches, no classes.  As a senior citizen, she showed what talent she really had by getting her Canadian CD with wonderful scores and a HIT.

She also gave us some magnificent puppies who had her brains and fire. See a listing of her pups here.

In most activities, Dream was a patient teacher.  But, in one area, she was intolerant and demanding--the field.  Dream lived to hunt.  So, she taught me field work and introduced me to hunt tests.  A wiley pheasant dog, she introduced many of our friends to the joys of hunting over a golden. The greatest gift of all was that she passed on to her kids a passionate love of the field.

Thank you, Dream.  If only I knew then what I know now.
