|Notes from families who have our Golden Retriever pups
I hope this finds you well. Annie, the pup we got from you late last March has turned out to be absolutely everything we’d hoped and lots more.
Having had goldens for every one of my sixty-six years, my standards are high, and I’ve had several world-class bird dogs. At ten months of age, I’d
have to say that Annie is the equal of any dog I’ve ever owned. We spent six weeks out west, hunting in MT, WY and ID. She is as mellow and easy
going as a dog can be, but given the scent of a bird and she is ALL business. She is smart and biddable; I just could not hope for a better dog.

I’d add that it is quite unusual to find a Golden from “show stock”, regardless of how good that stock may be, and have the dog be as good afield as
Annie is. I’m not new to this game. She is as fine a dog as I’ve had for a first-season dog. Watching her learning curve has been astonishing;
she requires one time to experience something; the next time it occurs, she’s simply GOT it.
I work with two friends who have National Field Trial Champion Goldens. These are very serious level dogs. Annie is not overshadowed by these dogs
All the best,
I just want you to know that Priscilla (now Magnolia (nickname "Maggie") is doing very well. She is an absolute joy and is exactly as advertised. We
would have kept the name Priscilla had we not already negotiated her new name and nickname in advance. Priscilla was a great name. Maggie was
examined by a wonderful vet on Monday morning and was declared extremely healthy. The vet also said: "This is an A+++ puppy". She is very happy
and is getting an appropriate amount of exercise but is not over doing it. She is very playful and is also really sweet as you already know. Maggie took
the long ride back to Virginia very much in stride. She spent much of the ride curled up in Linda's lap. We made numerous stops to sure she had many
opportunities to relieve herself. She is already going up and down stairs and is on the verge of being house broken. She also retrieves already.
There are a number of really nice dogs to play with in our neighborhood. She has already made many friends. We are looking forward to getting to our
ocean property in Maine where there are also a number of nice dogs but also a great deal of space to run and play. Yesterday she discovered that taking
her paw and splashing it in her water dish was great fun. She then started splashing with both paws. I have a feeling she will be a great water dog as
well. She sleeps in our bedroom with us and is adjusting to our schedule as we also adjust to hers. We are extremely happy with her and really
appreciated the opportunity to meet you as well. You told us a number of things that are very helpful. We also enjoyed getting to know you.
Thank you so much.

Just had Owen to the vet for his annual checkup and we are proud to say he is a very healthy 3 year old. Dr. Kenfield says he is a "perfect specimen"
of a Golden. He is 75 lb. of solid muscle! Josh is here almost everyday during the summer and he and his cousins and friends love to play catch with
Owen, well actually it is more like keep away! But, Owen gets lots of running as we are blessed to have a big fully fenced back and side yard.
We are so pleased and proud to have this handsome guy as "Our boy".
The new puppies are adorable!!!
Best to you and yours,
~ Jan and a big slurppy kiss from Owen!
I must tell you that Molly (aka “Shirley”) is a pleasure! She is entirely unaffected by any new situation thrown at her…she melds seamlessly into any
situation. Whether it is dealing with the extended pack or going to school and greeting the kids (she LOVES the kids) !
She is courageous without being brash….she is curious but not foolish. In short, she “gets it”! I don’t think we have ever had a puppy who has so
automatically adapted to the environment…and make no mistake, a pack of 4 is “complex”. She is a joy!
Today was her first Vet appointment and she came through with flying colors! I am attaching a photo of Molly engaged in a “tug of war” with Ridley
with Merlin looking on.
She has been warmly accepted by her pack and is included in everyone’s play!
More to come!

Thought I would share some pictures of Anna (Bella). Can't thank you enough. She is doing wonderful and is so sweet and loving!
Bill, and Melanie
Thank you for my loving new parents. I'm wearing my new rain slicker but Mom says I look like a super hero. My new name is Nikolai Paddington
"Paddy" Bear Gatsby Novikov. Mom says I'm the best birthday/anniversary/Christmas gift ever!
Love and woof woof;
Madison is doing great!!!!!! She had her first vet appt. yesterday and got a healthy seal of approval!!! Everyone (staff & clients) had to hug and kiss
her. She really is quite adorable. Our Daughter, Son-in-law and 14 month old granddaughter are coming in tonite for the weekend to meet her. I am
anxious to see how the "babies" get along. Our grand daughter loves dogs. They also bring their sweet 4 yr old cat, too. I'll keep you posted, maybe
even some pictures. I see all the puppies are spoken for.
They are truly special.
Just wanted to let you know that Annie is doing great! She is such a sweetie!!! You did such a great job crate training her. Our Nikki loves her. I just
bought a new camera today and am charging the batteries now. I will send you a couple of pictures of them together when it is finished charging.
Just a quick e-mail to let you know how much we LOVE baby Ruby!!! She is loving our home and her new Mommy Sophie! We lucked out last night
and found a big bag of Royal Canine at Pet Smart, along with many new accessories last night!!!
I just wanted to send you some pictures of Odie, yes we kept the name. He is: Sir Odie of Acushnet River Valley. He is growing so fast and gets
smarter everyday. We have so much fun with him.
My husband was so surprised and happy I gave him Odie for his birthday.

Sorry for the delay in the email. I wanted to update you on Brandy. She's doing really well! She's actually sleeping and snoring on the couch right now -
she's claimed her corner of it. She's very smart and friendly. She had completed Puppy Basic and we're in Intermediate Class now. She's very good with
children and with my grandparents. My grandfather absolutely adores her, and she walks very slowly with him while he hobbles along on his cane. I
sent some photos so you could see how she's grown!
She is absolutely wonderful - thank you so much.
We are now officially looking for another puppy! We adopted Abigail from you the end of last February and I contacted you during the summer about
a male puppy, well we are now ready. We are looking for a light, big and blocky male. We were interested in the males you just had, but were not
quick enough! So, we were wondering if there might be any puppies fitting that description that might be up and coming. We are certainly willing to
wait for the "right" puppy. Please let me know if you might have anything available in the near future.
Thank you so much!
Best wishes to you and your family for a Happy 2011. I always enjoy checking out your web site - your Christmas puppies were beautiful. I don't
know how you manage to get them in such great poses - your photography is superb. Our Oliver is a very calm and affectionate Golden - we are
enjoying him so much.
Montana is doing fabulously. He was a little upset on the ride home, which is understandable, but as soon as he arrived and met his two year old sister,
Mitzi (Maltese) who likes to play every bit as much as he does, all else was forgotten. They have a ball together and wear each other out. He goes to
the door whenever he has to go, which is every twenty minutes, and comes when he is called without hesitation. His training starts in earnest this
weekend since he is a very smart dog. Instincts run deep. This morning he met our 16 year old cat for the first time, and his reaction was to freeze and
point. He held the point for a good two minutes as the cat sized him up and then retreated to a safe loft to think it over. He is a great dog!
Below is the announcement to family and friends with pictures. I had about ten pictures attached but the server said, “No Way” and only accepted
two. But it’s a start. We already have about fifty pictures of him. He’ll be a ham in no time. Thanks for the picture of his mother. I have just moved
it into the hard drive and will incorporate it into Montana’s CD album. If you ever have a chance to get a picture of his father, we would love to have
that as well.
It was a pleasure meeting you, and we will stay in touch with pictures as he grows (which is by the minute). Hope all is well with you, and quietly
hope that you do not get out of the “business”. You do a great service. Stay in touch. Mike
I wanted to send you a picture and update on Coby who is now six months old and 65 lbs. What a wonderful dog---so gregarious and affectionate. I
wish I had a dollar for every time someone told me how handsome he is. As you may recall, this is my first dog ever and I am completely happy I made
the decision. Coby was house trained in two weeks, so he is both smart and good~looking!! Keep up the good work.
Happened to visit your site last night and saw that you have a litter of puppies from the same parents that had Gem (she was Caroline) and I decided
to send you some photos so you can see how well she is doing. We have had Gem for nearly 2 years now and, as you can see from the photos, she is a
huge part of our family and my children love her so much. She is a very sweet natured dog and has never shown any signs of aggression to people or
other dogs. She is so beautiful, people stop me to compliment her all the time. I was interested to see the photos of her parents again, now that she is
an adult. I can definitely see a strong resemblance to her father, and from what I recall you telling me about his personality, it seems that she has a good
share of that too.
Thanks for helping us get such a wonderful dog.
Here are three photos of Gracie at about 3 months. She is such a love. She wants to be wherever her people are. We ask "where is Gracie?" only to
find she is lying underneath our chair. Thank you for a wonderful dog!

Thought you might like to see Madison (Lilly DOB 6/23/10). She is an absolutely wonderful dog and we are loving her to pieces! We live on The
Cape and she goes to the ocean to play on the beach every morning and goes walking on the dog trail every afternoon with her best friends Gracie (GR)
and Ella (Australian Shepherd) and swims in the pond after. The family behind us recently got a puppy about Madison's age, a cross between a beagle
and border collie. They play every chance they get. Madison weighs about 66 lbs. at 8 mos., not sure how big she'll get? She is enrolled in obedience
class (clicker/treat) and is doing well so far! She jumps on everyone and licks faces; we are working on that. I have been following your website and all
the pups are adorable!
Laurie & Tony Cantore
Lord Stanley (Cup) Doyle - formally " Duke". 1-year old yesterday and doing great. Thought you would like this picture. He's a great dog. Very
lovable and very smart. Thank You
Just thought I’d give you an update on Riley (she was in Isabelle in the Belle Bunch born 12/26/12). She’s now 5 months and 43 pounds! She’s doing
great. Fully house trained, obeys commands (sit, paw, stay, etc) and is absolutely adorable! She loves people, especially little kids and is gentle and
good natured. We love her!
I’ve attached some pictures so you can see how much she’s grown.
Thanks for getting us together!
Alicia & Tim
Wanted to let you know that Sawyer's (aka Sonny) visit to the vet on Friday went well, no problems and the staff loved him!!
Sonny is doing great! He is such a perfect puppy, he is well on his way as far as potty training and is an angel in his crate at night, we don't hear one
peep out of him. We are having so much fun with him and he seems really happy.
Thanks again, I will send you a couple of pictures in a separate email.
Ruby just turned 1 year’s old! She’s a “love”! Thank you for our wonderful doggie!
Just wanted to let you know that Lily seems to be adjusting just fine with her many new surroundings! She seems to love her new big yard in
Austerlitz and is having a ball following us around the house. Today we drove back to Brooklyn and Lily was promptly greeted with a friendly hello
from the neighborhood dogs. One was a Goldendoodle and the other a Labradoodle, and together all three were a gorgeous golden color,
what a beautiful sight! Next time I’ll take a photo and send it to you. Lily is also enjoying her Brooklyn backyard and for now seems to have enough
room to run around. She likes exploring the different floors of the house as well. Our cat seems to be taking her presence in stride and we anticipate
that they will get along well after they become accustom to one another. Thank you for sharing your abundance of knowledge and providing us with an
amazingly beautiful, calm and sweet puppy. We’ll keep you posted with updates along the way.
All the best,
The Hartnett Family
The family was thrilled and very happy. We did get a chance to meet the laytons and see "Fin" as then now call him. He is a great dog and very social.
I will keep you in the loop and send you some pictures as he grows. We took him out on the ocean yesterday to start to get him use to being on the
water as our family spends allot of time there. He loved it and actually slept on the ride back!! Todd
Just wanted you to know ride home went well, she has been a peach , shes gone to the bathroom outside like a pro
Thanks again Dave and Amy
We will keep you updated with pics
I know it's been awhile but I just wanted to send you a few pictures of Odie. These pictures are on his first birthday June 23, 2012. People around
watching me with him were just amazed how beautiful and smart he was for his age. We have him in agility and he is amazing.
Odie is very smart, has a sweet personality and always has love and kisses for everyone he meets. Oh, he loves to watch golf on television with his
daddy. If anyone is looking for a great Golden Retriever puppy they need to think about getting one of your puppies.
Sharon & Rick
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Alby (now Brady) is doing great! He is sleeping through the night and getting to know all the
ins/outs of his new home. A few accidents but we're working with him! He's been so much fun and we're looking forward to him being part of our
family! Thanks again for everything. We LOVE him.
Happy Holidays to you and your family. Love to see more, we are loving Cooper so much. Let me know.. Thank you
I can't begin to thank you enough for the gift of Rockwell. He has been such a joy and it has only been two days. Rockwell is 99% house broken and
really has been a nice addition to our family.
I hope you are well. I have been meaning to email you and give an update on our life with “Stanley” (we renamed him Odie after seeing that name on
your website before we bought Stanley, we loved the name). I know you remember us, so heartbroken over the death of our Jack. We still are, of
course, but Odie had come into our lives and brought so much joy. He is the best behaved puppy, so mild mannered, never EVER barks, so loving and
happy. He is very smart and learns so quickly. He has brought us so much joy already we cannot imagine life without him! I wanted to thank you for
your patience with us, and thank you for providing us with such a perfect beautiful Golden, we love him so much. I have attached a photo of him, he is
adorable, and a photo of him with his brother Max, our 10 year old Cocker Spaniel. Odie loves his brother very much!!

|Photograph above taken by us at New England Goldens with our pups. - 2009
|We have many people that come from NY, CT, RI, NH, Maine & Vermont (Canadian Border).
The long distance record is still held by the couple that drove up from Edgewater, Maryland, 900
miles round trip, for this pup shown below...then drove right back. That's what we see.
|This photo above was just a tall tree blowing slowly in a light wind that caught
their attention here. Guess they loved that breezy 72 degree spring day back in
2011 as much as I did. Although it took this event for me to recall that one light
breeze that came through during the photo session. Funny how it takes these
pups to have us appreciate what's real. Life is something that happens to you
when your busy making other plans. These pups concentrate on the present all
the time. They are not making plans for the next thing like we are.

that are ready now.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you again for our wonderful
puppy. Winston aka Albert "shown below" is the absolute love of
our life! He’s such a handsome well-behaved boy that people have
stopped us and told us how good looking he is. His favorite
activities so far are swimming and boating. Here’s a picture of him
on our boat last weekend for the 4th of July! Thanks again and we’ll
be in touch in a year or so, as we’ll be getting another puppy!
Thought you might enjoy hearing about our Arielle (originally Adeline) who just turned a year old
this month. She has been such a joy...sweet, smart and fun. People, including vets, are impressed
with her calm demeanor. It took only two days until our senior boy, Jean Luc, was smitten and
became her nanny and playmate. Fortunately at 11 years he acts about 7 and keeps up with
Arielle's puppy energy...just needs a little more down time! Arielle is doing well at school and
adores other dogs. She has been a pretty easy pup to raise, all around, and even uses her inside
voice to ask to go out. We are crazy about her and she's having a great life...lots of time with us,
oceanfront vacation, lots of swimming (her favorite activity). She's also gorgeous, and I'm attaching
a few photos for your pleasure. Take care, and happy holidays! - Joanna and Jim
|We'd got a golden pup from you about 3.5 years ago. I
just wanted to send you a picture of how our pup (Messi)
looks. He is the best dog in the world and I'm sure you
hear that from everyone :). We are considering getting a
second pup at this time so that Messi has company.
Please let us know if you have any litters coming up on
your side in a few months and we will be on the lookout
for a bro/sis for Messi. Thank you! Best, ~Meghana
Ivy of Marblehead, MA
Just a quick note to say hi from Lellobear , formerly
Wally. As you can see, he is an incredibly handsome
pup. But beyond that, he is the sweetest, funniest, and
smartest dog that we could ever have imagined. We
love him so much. He loves to hike, and is great with
his little Havanese sister, and even the cat. We were so
lucky to have found him, and we often think about how
fortunate we were that there were only two unspoken
puppies left when we got there, as we might not have
picked him. But we are so very grateful that he was
there just waiting for us. If there were 100 puppies to
choose from, he would still be the pick of the litter to us
– He is our perfect boy. Cheers,
Judi and David -
I got a puppy from you on Sept 9, 2016.She will be 2 on June 25. Her name is
Ivy. I’ve had many dogs, all rescues...Ivy is exceptional! Calm, smart...knows
at least 25-30 words/commands. I’m thinking of getting another Golden in the
spring and I would go anywhere else. Recent photo of her shown below
This is Brody on his first birthday in February. As you can see, he is
thriving here in Hopkinton. Brody is the most fun-loving dog I’ve ever been
around. And the people in his obedience class thinks he’s a show-off
because he’s so quick on the uptake and everyone loves him.
I thought you’d appreciate knowing he’s doing great with our loving family.
So happy we have him.
All the best,

Fenway is so healthy and strong, runs like a dear, and is sweet as can
be. He is everything and more than I hoped for. Please know how happy
my family is, after loosing another great Golden at 14 Years old. I’m
thinking Fenway will be even better than our Riley. Thank you,
