Johnny, our Stud, and the 'Dog Love' of my life! While Johnny's looks would stop you in your tracks to ask me 'what kind of dog is that?', its his amazing sweetness and attitude that make everyone love him the best (don't tell the girls, they think they are the favorites!) RARE 'EXCELLENT' hip rating...less than 3% of Goldens tested get this top scoring!! Normal Elbows,Passed eye (CERF) and heart (SAS) I would also like to say how much he just charms people. It used to really surprise me when people came over to meet the dogs and they were always interested in the girls. Most everyone leaves here loving the girls, but just falling madly in love with Johnny. I am simply blessed to have him. Though the English standard on size tends to be a bit smaller - Johnny fits right in with the AKC size standards. Another thanks to RuthAnne for this great picture which captured Johnny AND what he gives to his progeny....need I say more? Photo date early 3/09 http://actionphotosplus.com
*****Update on Johnny's progeny!! We now have two therapy dogs from Lucky Lady Farms!! One in Alabama and one here in Georgia who was one of the youngest dogs ever to earn her TDI certificate at 1 year and 2 weeks. We have another puppy pursuing their therapy certification via the AKC's new therapy dog program Link to AKC
Congratulations to Debbie and all the excellent staff at The Dog Knowledge for their admittance into this exciting new program of the AKC!!! Can't wait to hear how Louie performs! The Dog Knowledge
Finally, we look forward to adding a service dog brag among our puppies as precious 'Happy' grows, matures, and learns to love and help his family.
We continue to support Georgia Canines for Independence and encourage your patronage of their worthy pursuits! Help GCI dogs here!
Future prospects include placing dogs into assistance service for ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease in an exciting pilot program here in Georgia. I am personally very excited about the prospects of a therapy dog used with children affected by Autism. As cutting edge ideas are developed in having dogs work with these children, I'm hopeful a program will emerge here that we could participate in. If you have or know such an organization, please let me know!
