We received this photo today of handsome Apollo. He is an 11 month old son of Flirt’s, and is Fontana’s littermate. In color and head type, he is most certainly what people would call an English cream, or UK show-line Golden Retriever. Except, he’s not. Many generations go back before there are English imports of any kind on either side of his pedigree. Genetics, man! Amazing. We are proud of this handsome guy, and he’s a wonderful companion.
Marlene’s sweet, beautiful Sammy Forever loved and missed. I had the wonderful experience of watching this puppy (and his wonderful humans) grow up over years and years on the Golden Retriever Forum. Now, he has passed on from this life, but he will always be remembered and loved. It was a joy to sketch him and his unique ears and his classic Golden smile.
Here are a few of the sweet pets I’ve enjoyed capturing this week! Thanks Elissa! ❤
The next litter that we have planned at Windridge is the Scottish themed litter. Registered names will have some relation to Scotland or Scottish themed things. This is because this is where the breed originated.
We are extremely excited about this litter for a few reasons. One is that this will be my second generation of Windridge Golden Retrievers. Flirt is my foundation, and her daughter from her first litter will be the mother of this litter. Fontana is a gorgeous, sweet, soft-natured, kind animal. She also has a great deal of natural desire to retrieve and a great love for water. She is biddable and very easy to live with. She will have health testing this spring, prior to breeding.
Here are some photos of Fontana:

Another reason we are so excited that the sire, Jack, is a truly awesome dog. His pedigree is outstanding, a virtual who’s who of field trial and working Goldens. He is a deep red, small, driven dog with all health testing completed. He also has his JH title.

I am hoping for pups with an excellent blend of traits from both of these two fine animals. We have a couple of working homes waiting for these puppies, as well as several outstanding companion homes.
Puppies should be born sometime in early 2019. All puppies are priced at $1200 and come with full AKC registration. Breeders of this litter are myself (Jenna Coleman) and Scottie Westfall.
Anyone who might be interested in going on the waiting list is welcome to contact me. We look for homes who are willing to maintain at least casual contact and give updates (good and bad alike) on the puppies and their health and temperament. We also give strong preference to homes that do not pediatric alter, and who keep their dogs indoors as family companions.
Thanks for looking!
Having become fascinated by these guys recently, I decided to try my hand at drawing one. Photo is from google, and art is NOT for sale.
The eyes in particular are just stunning to me:
So, here we go. I’m going to blog here, featuring my art, my Golden Retriever puppies, and my own dogs. I might even talk about life or something 🙂
