“Sport” earned her first two AKC-championship points by going WB, BOW, and BOS at the San Mateo Kennel Club on Sun, Dec 30th, owner-handled! We are especially proud to have them awarded by Golden Breeder-Judge Jeffrey Pepper. Many thanks to him for recognizing our very special girl.

Speaking of Jeff Pepper, check out the article he wrote for the AKC Gazette, which was published in the Nov-Dec 2007 GRNews ‘Field issue’. It is entitled ‘Who Needs the Breed Standard?’ and is about the importance of maintaining breed type no matter what venues one chooses to pursue with their Golden Retriever, or risk losing the very essence of the breed.
