11 pups, 5 females and 6 males, born February 17, 2009
Co-breeder: Lise Pratt
Well, Bizzy and Goose obviously had a very WILD party because Bizzy delivered ELEVEN lovely pups, six boys and five girls, on February 17, 2009. These pups spent their first six weeks at their co-breeder, Lise Pratt’s house before moving to Gaylan’s for the last three weeks.
We wanted to honor these pups heritage so they are named for the purpose of golden retrievers, retrieving game birds. You can see lots of photos, videos and read how we raised these pups at gamebirdlitter.blogspot.com/.
These pups have grown into wonderful companions and competitors. At 2 1/2, they honored their dam by making her a GRCA Outstanding Dam.

“Page” headed off to Indiana with Deb Abbot, Devon and the other dogs. Page and Deb are doing it all–field, agility, tracking and obedience. She started her career by getting certified for tracking at 19 weeks of age, earning both her TD and TDX titles at 8 months and passing the VST at 19 months to become our first Champion Tracker. She’s also hit the agility ring and the hunting field, earning titles in both venues.
“Covey” started out life as an assistance dog breeder but when that didn’t work out, she flew north to join Frances in Ontario, Canada. There she is doing obedience and field. Photo by Wendy Beard.
“Izzy” headed south to Virginia with Mike and Chris Morrissey and their two children. She is learning all the things that go along with being a beloved family companion AND is playing in obedience and agility.
