pedigree and clearances
Abbi was our wonderful golden that we were lucky to get from Gayle Watkins and her Gaylan's goldens. She was everything we had asked for. She loved life and her tail never quit wagging.
She was my agility star. She loved agility with a passion. She was very responsive, focused, and fast. She started with her NA at the 2003 GRCA National in Ohio, then finished her MXJ at the 2005 GRCA National in Gettysburg, then finished her MX in 2007. Abbi obtained her CPE Agility Championship (C-ATCH) and her Am. CD and UKC CD. She also finished her Rally Advanced title at the 2005 National.
Abbi received her Certificate of Conformation (CCA) from the GRCA on her first attempt five days after being bred for her second litter. She finished her UKC CH when she was just 13 months old, finishing in five shows, with the help of my friend, Pat Morgan, who is a wonderful long time breeder of Belgian Tervs and Lakenois.
Abbi finished her JH, along with her son Shiloh, on Oct 1, 06. She passed her Working Certificate at the 2008 GRCA National, getting our first ever WC! Abbi also became Tom's great hunting partner, hunting pheasants and ducks with him.
We took time out from Abbi's training and trialing to have three litters.
In April 2005, Abbi had her first litter, which we co-bred with Abbi's breeder Gayle, from Gaylan's Goldens. We bred her to
Timberee at Monument Canyon CDX MH WCX ** OS
a handsome obedience hunting dog, from several conformation lines. We had nine beautiful puppies, kept a little girl named Chime, and the rest went to fantastic homes.
She became an Outstanding Dam from this first litter and they helped their sire Canyon become an Outstanding Sire.
They are still doing agility, rally, tracking, obedience, and several are great hunting dogs, and all are wonderful companions. You can see more about these puppies on the
Music Litter page.
Abbi's second litter was again co-bred with Gaylan's Goldens and was born in July, 2007. We bred her to
High Times Run'n The Roost*** UD MH WCX OS
She had five wonderful pups July 10, 2007. They are in wonderful working homes and have great careers in agility, tracking, obedience, and field work. One of the pups stayed here with us. Her name is Kerri. Check her out on her own webpage and check out the
Irish Litter on their webpages.
Abbi's third litter was our first litter born under the Topmast Goldens name. She was bred to
Ch Buckeye Standing Ovation OS and whelped 11 puppies Jan, 2009. They went to wonderful homes and have really excelled in competitions. You can see the Topmast Traveling litter here.
We lost Abbi when she was 12 from kidney cancer and we miss her so much and find it hard to do agility without her.
I am so thankful for the 25 offspring she produced to carry on her legacy.
