Panda at the East Tennessee Hunt Test May 25, 2014
Panda was the 1st puppy in Penny's final litter, born on Penny's own 6th birthday. She
was the puppy known initially as "Pink" because of her baby collar color. From the first, she was a big and very vigorous
puppy. She strongly favors Hilfy, her maternal granddam, with her lovely face and sturdy build. Panda is a delightful companion with a sprightly, cheerful
and loving personality -- she's up for anything! She has lots of talent and is ultra stylish in the field. Her trainer Jody Ware
says she loves to train, works well, and is especially good in the water -- he now owns one of the puppies from her first litter. She completed
her Master Hunter title on May 18, 2014, shortly before her 3rd birthday, and earned her WCX on October 26, 2014. We are very proud of her accomplishments! When she
is home, we are working her some in obedience and she shows a lot of potential for that field as well. She has passed all her clearances and is
has had two litters of puppies, in 2015 and 2016 by outstanding field sires. She is now bred for one last litter
due o/a January 24, 2018 and then we will concentrate on more titles in different fields.
WCX: Panda earned her WCX (Working Certificate Excellent) title at the Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty in Bristol,
TN on October 26, 2014.
Master Hunter: Panda earned her Master Hunter title May 18, 2014, finishing with qualifying runs at the Middle Tennessee double master spring test
in Lavergne, TN. She was still two years old at the time she titled. We get many, many compliments from pros and other exhibitors about her style, drive and speed, and
her pro trainer took one of the puppies from her first litter.

Senior Hunter: Panda earned her Senior Hunter title May 26, 2013, just a few days shy of her 2nd birthday. Since we didn't take her out for
Junior, she needed 5 legs to title. She accomplished this in 3 consecutive weekends, at the MidSouth, Middle Tennessee, and East Tennessee Hunt Tests, with
Jody Ware handling. Panda has lots of drive and style and loves every minute of the work!
Litter 9: Panda was bred to AFC Topbrass Hawks Red Wing MH CCA, ("Red")
for her third and final litter which is due o/a 1/24/18. Her first litter with Red was so outstanding that we decided to repeat the breeding and keep a girl
puppy so that we will have two half-sisters to carry on in the future. The litter pedigree is here.
We have taken full deposits and have a waiting list.
Litter 8: Panda was bred to AFC The Sunday Swimmer, ("Wyatt") for her second litter. Wyatt is a handsome Field Trial dog who has qualified for and
competed through the 5th series at the all-breed National Amateur Field Trial for both 2014 and 2015. She whelped 10 puppies (5 girls, 5 boys) on December 6, 2016. We have kept a girl from this litter --
Fern Hill Sunday at the Zoo, aka Zoey and couldn't be more excited. The puppies have gone to wonderful new homes, and several of them will have a chance at top level competition
in field and obedience. The litter pedigree is here.
Litter 7: Panda was bred to AFC Topbrass Hawks Red Wing MH CCA,
for her first litter of 6 puppies (4 boys, 2 girls) on April 16, 2015. The litter pedigree is here.
The puppies went to wonderful homes, and all are showing loads of talent, wonderful dispositions and trainability, and
handsome 'old gold' looks.
