The twelve puppies were whelped and raised by her owner, Pam Martin in Ottawa, Canada, of Audeo Goldens.
We expected lovely, working dogs that would be capable of following in their parents footsteps of CH/MH and that's what they developed into.

Chime's Previous litters:
Outer Space Litter---2012
We were thrilled to have bred to Kamikaze, bringing in a similar pedigree that we strive for, combining working/performance pedigree with conformation. A good looking working dog.
We think this combination of Kamikaze and Chime produced nice looking working dogs that will compete in all venues.
For the sire of Chime's first litter, we chose Rocky, Wynwoods Wild Card SH CCA
Rocky was owned and bred by Renee Schulte, Wynwood Golden Retrievers, a long time breeder of performance goldens.
We made this choice for several reasons; his field and performance abilities, his structure, and his temperament. This golden progressed very quickly in his field training, easily earning his Junior and Senior Hunter. His first two JH passes came in the fall of 2009 when he was just eight months old. He quickly finished his Junior Hunter when the hunt test season resumed early in 2010. He went on to complete his Senior Hunter Summer 2010 with his owner/handler. He passed then finished his Master Hunter.
The Traveling Litter--2009
January 26, 2009
Abbi and Collin puppies (The Traveling Litter) was born January 26, 2009.
Abbi was bred for her last litter to the wonderful and beautiful
Ch Buckeye Standing Ovation OS,
otherwise known as Collin, of
Buckeye Golden Retrievers.
Ultrasound had confirmed there were ten puppies in there, but we had ELEVEN!
WAHOO!!! Way to go Abbi and Collin!
See the Traveling Litter page for more pictures and updates on the litter.
We met Collin in 2004 when we went on a stud hunting trip with Abbi's breeder Gayle and friend Marcy. We loved him just as much when we bred to him, as we did then.
The theme of the litter was the Traveling Litter.
This breeding produced intelligent, birdy retrievers with the drive and energy needed to excel at agility, obedience, and hunt tests, which they are doing with great gusto.
This litter was raised here with us, using Gaylan's puppy rearing program and evaluated using their adaptation of Sheila Booth's Positive Puppy Preview before going to their new homes around nine weeks of age.

For her second litter, Abbi was bred to

UD MH WCX OS
You can see the pedigree for this breeding at
The five Irish Litter puppies
were born July 10, 2007. This litter was co-bred with Abbi's breeder Gayle Watkins of Gaylan's Goldens. The litter, known as the Irish Quints, was whelped and raised here until they were almost 7 weeks of age. We then headed to Gayle's house in New York, where the puppies went for mountain walks, and had their testings and evaluations done before being placed in their new homes.
We were very excited about this breeding, combining two great high drive dogs with great on and off switches.
The pups are fantastic in their drive, biddability, and birdiness.
Watch for them doing fantastic things in their working homes.
Abbi x Canyon
April 28, 2005
For her first litter, Abbi was bred in early 2005 to the lovely
TIMBEREE AT MONUMENT CANYON**
CDX MH WCX OS.
The Music Litter of nine beautiful babies was born April 28, 2005. We did this breeding in conjunction with Abbi's breeder, Gayle Watkins, Gaylan's Goldens. We think Abbi and Canyon complimented each other well, and they produced wonderful pups. The pedigree for that breeding can be seen at
We were very excited about that breeding, our first adventure into the whelping box in 30+ years.
We had a great time having puppies. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. The puppies turned out wonderful and are in wonderful homes. You can see pictures of them on their web pages, along with pictures of Chime, the little girl puppy that we kept.
With Gayle, we tried to find great combinations with our breedings to obtain puppies with great health, longevity, and wonderful temperaments.
U-CH U-AGII U-CD C-ATCH Gaylan's High Flying Abbi CCA MX MXJ CD RA JH OAC EJC EGC PD1
Abbi was a moderate high drive golden who lived for action, but had a wonderful on-off switch and was easy to live with. She learned quickly, had wonderful work ethic and was eager to please. Her temperament was stable, friendly, and trustworthy. Her tail never stopped wagging, but she was not a silly golden. She had very dark eyes, full dentition and a scissors bite. Her pigment was black, with slight winter fading of the nose. Her coat was straight, easy to maintain, and shed water easily. She didn't carry a lot of coat, which made it easy to maintain and burrs brushed out easily. Her topline was level with a slightly sloping croup. She had a correct tail set, but was known to carry it a little high when excited. She had moderate bone.
Where Abbi excels was in agility. She lived for agility. We played in all five venues of agility, and she loved them all. She was in the ribbons for all her titles. She was very fast and once her mom learned how to react quick enough to that speed, we become a wonderful team. We had a little contact problem in the past, but we worked through that and finished her MX & MXJ.
She was Tom's personal upland game hunting dog and I finished her Junior Hunter in Sept 05, with her son Shiloh finishing together with his dam. She was a powerful swimmer and had a wonderful water entry. Check out her water entry on her webpage.

Please keep in mind that our breeding program focuses on producing correctly structured performance and hunting, and a few breeding goldens. We seek to place most of our pups in working homes that compete in more than one arena--field, agility, obedience, conformation, tracking--or that work their dogs in hunting, or serious pet-assisted therapy. If you are interested in a performance or hunting puppy from one of these litters, or would like further information on a future litter, please contact us via e-mail at
Typically, we have a litter every one to two years.
In the beginning, we co-bred with Gayle Watkins of Gaylan's Goldens. We are breeding under our own name now, but we are still breeding with her guidance and teachings. Our litters are whelped and raised here in our home, in the middle of all our daily happenings. They will be raised according to the
. When they are old enough, they will spend the last 3 weeks walking in our woods, swimming in our pond if weather permits, meeting lots of people and getting to know their relatives. We spend our time getting to know them so we can match them well with their new owners.
Before contacting us about a puppy, please read the following portions of our website to be sure that we and our dogs are right for you:
