Sierra's Pedigree

Sierra was a once-in-a-lifetime dog.   She is the foundation of our breeding program and exemplified many of the goals of the program.   Sierra did everything we asked of her, and excelled at all.   Sierra was the third Golden, and at this writing, the only Golden bitch, to achieve the title combination OTCH + TDX + SH(or MH).   She was pointed in the conformation show ring.   She truly personified the versatility of the Golden Retriever.

In the obedience ring, Sierra earned four AKC High in Trials and two UKC High in Trials, and many High Combined awards.  She earned her UKC Obedience championship in 8 trials, earning High Combined in all.    She earned her agility titles with first through third place placements on all legs, and finished her brief agility career with a fourth place in Novice A Standard at the 2000 GRCA National Specialty.   Sierra’s  Senior Hunter title was earned in four straight tests.  In seven straight weekends in the fall of 1998 just months after raising a litter of 7 puppies, Sierra earned her four SH legs and SH title, three Utility legs (three first places) and UD title (in 4 trials), and two U-CDX legs with a HIT!

Special thanks to Sierra’s breeder, Judith Haithcoat, 
for breeding such a special dog and for entrusting her to us!
