Hi Tommy! We hope you are well! It's hard to believe that we have had Appa for over a month, she is wonderful and we love her very much. As does every that we come in contact with, they are just amazed how beautiful she is and she is a hit in her puppy class. Robert and Todd
Hi Mimmi and Tommy here he is on a heavenly bed at the Wealleria in Dallas. He also had his first shopping trip at the mall and was impressed with the ice skaters. Thank you for bringing this bundle of joy to my home and family. I will keep you updated. Much love,Andy

Dear Mimmi and Tommy! This is Hiromi Suzuki from San Diego. I got 2 puppies from you guys last month. They are doing great! I want to show you some pictures. I want to say thank you to you guys. Also I let you know I have pet insurance and they finished spay and neuter. How can I get the registration from AKC as my pet dog? Which document should I send to you? Thank you again. Hiromi
Hi Mimmi~ Not to bother you, but I thought I would send this great photo of Zues and Napolean on a family trip to Colorado, they loved playing in the snow. I hope you can see it. Best, Cayce
Hi Mimi - Been a while & I thought you might like to see Jack - he is the most wonderful dog! He has a job @ the local Three Dog Bakery a couple of days a week here in Sonoma - Jack is the manager in charge of customer service & quality control. He also will graduate soon (with honors I might add) as a Certified Therapy Dog. Jack will celebrate his third birthday on June 6th - how time flies! His buddies at the Bakery are having a bash in his honor - I will send you photos if you'd like. I am truly blessed that he is in my life - anyone who meets Jack walks away a better person & at the very least with a smile on their face... I hope all is well with you & thank you again for such a wonderful dog! Regards, Christine Christine Staub
Dear Mimi, Kevin & Tommy, Just a note from Dakota and I to Wish YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope all is well with you! We are enjoying our little Dakota aka "Koty Bear" so much, he's such a love-y~ we love him to death! Warm Wishes Shelley Bonate

Hi Mimmi, I hope you are having a good summer and are feeling strong. We are enjoying our pups. Booker is the gentle, big brother showing Floyd all of the tricks to earn extra treats. Floyd was 4 months today and had his last round of vaccinations. He weighed in at a healthy 33 pounds. These boys sure do like to eat. Floyd had a visit to a nursing home today and was quite a hit with the senior crowd. He was calm and relaxed even as he experienced his first elevator ride and first wheel chair. Once again, hope you are doing well. Thank you for providing us with such wonderful pets. They are beautiful: inside and out. Best regards,Brenda Mack

Julia...our friendly kennel help! She has a very gentle spirit. Here in a peaceful moment withone of our dogs.
My name is Amy and I live in Denver, CO. I am a nurse and purchase one of you puppies in 2005. The puppy was a male and came from litter Jinty 2004 born on 9/10/2004. I did not buy him until he was 5 months old. I discovered your ranch on the internet and requested a blond male puppy with distinct black marks and a very calm even temperament to train him as a hospital visiting pet therapy dog. I named the puppy Achilles and he is the joy of my life. Achilles grew to be 65 pounds with no health problems. Achilles absolutely loves the water, I can not keep him out of any body of water no matter how big or small and muddy. Achilles also adores the snow and I often call him my little polar bear. He is perfect in every way. I could not of asked for a better dog. He was an angle of a puppy and I never had the typical puppy issues with him. Achilles is extremely affectionate and very smart and was extremely easy to train. He was the star student and teacher’s pet in all of his training classes. He is an extraordinary therapy dog. He was a natural right off the bat, as if he was made for me and to help brighten up patients’ day. No matter where I take him I get a handful of complements on how beautiful Achilles is to the point where strangers think he is a female. I love Achilles with all my heart and he literally is a god sent. My mother passed away a two months before I purchased Achilles and he kept me company. Achilles was a great comfort to wake up to every morning and to come home to every day. Achilles has gone everywhere with me from the grocery store to the salon to dining out and is always on his best behavior. I just want you to know how pleased I am with the wonder puppy you created. I am interested in purchasing a female from you in the Spring. I will contact you when I have made a final decision and have the finances to commit. I have attached some photos of Achilles to share with you. Please feel free to post any of this e-mail or pictures on your website. Thankfully, Amy Bream
Hi Mimi, Just thought you might like to see how beautiful our little Blanca is (Vanilla and Ludde's girl from the 3/2/07 litter). She is precious.......so well mannered, sweet, easily trained, and loves her family! We just had invisible fencing installed and she now has over 3 acres to run and play in (and loves it). She is turning into quite a big girl........I believe the last well-check she had at the vet she was 48 lbs! (But not overweight according to the vet). Really, I have never had a dog that was easier to train, or more loving. She is keeping her beautiful white color, which we are so happy about. She is quite an "attraction" whenever we take her anywhere........and we have yet to see another like her! We are very, very happy with our puppy, and I just wanted you to know! Best Regards, Valerie (in Minnesota)
Mimi, Hope you are feeling better. Attached photo was day one at The Red Barn in Malibu . This was taken about 2 months ago. The Dogs are a GREAT addition and we love them very much. It is work, but they are coming along well. They just had the last of their shots this weekend, so the social process with other dogs is about to begin. Victoria will send you some current photos. We have increased their food to about 7.5 Oz x 3 per day. Can you tell us what is the correct amount and when and what to increase it to ? Regards Mark Sutherland
Hi Everyone, Hope all is well on the ranch… Thought you might enjoy seeing 9 mo old Lincoln . My husband and I went on a trip and left Lincoln w/ Beth in Wash. , DC. Apparently, it appears he had a nice visit to the Capitol, even his visit w/ President Lincoln himself. We are starting to think about breeding him maybe once or twice, any suggestions or contacts you know on the East coast? He is becoming fairly the big male and a very loving one w/ a great personally. He loves being around other dogs and we will see how good of a swimmer he becomes this summer when we visit the lake as well as one of the neighbors has already invited him over to swim w/ her golden in their pool—they are brave!!

Greetings! We wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I've attached our Christmas photo of Sophie and her little sis Gracie. Sophie is almost 3 now and has been such a blessing to our family. She has the sweetest temperament and has enriched our lives so much. Thank you for this wonderful addition to our family! Best wishes, Kathy B (in Colorado)
Mimmi and Tommy, I hope this note finds you well. I want to thank you again for the happiness you have brought my family. As promised, I have attached a few pictures of " River ". He is growing so fast and having so much fun. Once again, thanks so very much for our new puppy River. I look forward to hearing from you - Johnny and Melissa.
Dear Mimi; We are all in love with our little girl! She is beautiful, smart and incredibly sweet and cuddly. I wanted to send you another picture of her with Joanna and Carolyn-this will be our holiday card pic as well. Hope all is well with you and your family at the ranch. I will send a hard copy card when I receive them. Best regards, The Miller family Elena, Robert, Joanna, Carolyn, and of course, Darla Miller PS the girls are already asking for another one!
Hi Mimi. Bella is doing great! She has the sweetest nature and temperament. She is so beautiful. I will send you pictures. We all love her so much. As with all Golden puppies, she has tons of energy and is very mouthy. We are working with a good trainer who is very kind. My little girls adore her. She also sleeps right next to our bed

HI Mimmi, I hope this Holiday Season finds you and yours well. Dropping a little note to tell you just how important Logan has become in our lives and to give you a thank you which will never be enough for entrusting him into our care. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God we have him. He is special!!! A once in a lifetime dog. He not only receives many compliments for his look but also for his gentleness with my patients. He is very intuitive knowing who to just sit for or when to give a little more of him self. Even the nurses that I work with say he is special. I will attatch pictures of him and his family Dallas and Gabby. Sincerely Rhea

Hi Mimi, Just wanted to send you this current picture of Dakota. I grabbed my camera and called him to take his pix and he popped up from the couch! Perfect shot!! He's just a little spoiled! He went to the vet yesterday and he weighs 27 lbs. which she said is perfect for his age. He's growing up way too fast!! He's the sweetest, cutest, funnest little terror on the planet!!!

HI AGAIN THIS COMING DECEMBER SAMMIE WILL BE WITH US 5 YEARS, YOU MIGHT RECALL YOU SENT HER TO US IN GEORGIA. WE'RE NOW IN SAN ANTONIO TX. WE'RE NOT SURE EXACTLY WHO HER PARENTS ARE, BECAUSE WE ONLY WANTED HER FOR OUR FAMILY, SHE HAS BEEN THE MOST WONDERFUL DOG IN THE WORLD, AND THEN SOME. I WORK FROM HOME SO WE SPEND ALOT OF TIME TOGETHER, SHE'S NOT BIG ON GOING IN THE CAR, OR WE WOULD SPEND EVEN MORE TIME TOGETHER. SHE'S VERY SUBMISSIVE, AND LOVES MOST OTHER DOGS, HAS BEEN TO DOG SCHOOL WALKS OFF THE LEAD, AND UNDERSTANDS EVERYTHING , SOMETIMES I EXPECT HER TO TALK BACK. WE THINK IT'S TIME FOR HER TO HAVE A COMPANION, BESIDE THREE CATS, AND WOULD LIKE TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT ANOTHER DOG, PROBOBLY NOT A PUPPY. SAMMIE WAS 6 MONTHS WHEN SHE CAME TO US. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN WE CAN HAVE A SHORT TALK REGARDING YOUR THOUGHTS. THANKS DR. MARY JO KRAUS and GEORGE CASANAVE

BELOW ARE TESTMONIALS FROM CUSTOMERS!
Name: Dan Horowitz, Las Vegas HI Mimmi, I had to tell you that the puppy is so cute and so calm and laid back. I've never had a dog like him. So far he doesn't want any part of a leasch, but it . will take time I'm sure. I'm really going to enjoy him. He seems to be very affectionate. Thank you so much. I thought you would enjoy hearing this. Dan
Name: Alyson Dingman Email: Hi Mimmi, How are you feeling? How is Kevin? Well our fifth child is the best of the lot! This puppy is the sweetest! So she is 12 and a 1/2 weeks old and sleeps through the night for 10 hours! Kevin was right she is special she looks at you with these eyes and it seems like she really understands! We start puppy class next week but she knows sit, stay, and we are working on heal. It is my goal to send pictures tomorrow! Thank-you so much for the best Christmas gift! Alyson
Name: Jill Funderburke Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Hi Mimmi! We hope you enjoyed the holidays. Seeing all of the puppies on your webpage tells me that you stayed busy the entire time! I still log on frequently to view all of your newest puppies as well as extended family member pictures. We are very proud to be part of your extended family! I know you have worked with many families who have adopted puppies to refresh your memory, we have SteelyDan (whose photo is on the extended family page) and were blessed to welcome one of Skorpans little boys into our home June 9th, who we named Bailey. I cant begin to tell you what a joy Bailey is we couldnt have asked for a sweeter little boy. He loves to wrestle and play with Steely and yet is affectionate and a cuddler who sleeps curled up next to me every night! Our 15 yr old Pekingese, Tiffany, made her journey to Dog Heaven the day after Thanksgiving; Bailey and Steely stepped right in as therapy dogs and really helped me through a difficult time. Its been quite awhile since Ive sent photos, so I thought Id share two with you that were a part of our 4th annual SteelyDan calendar the first one shows Steelys musical side (with a name like SteelyDan, he wanted to show that he, too, can boogie woogie with the best of them!); the second photo we call and I shall fear no evil) and shows Steely napping with Bailey when he was still little enough to curl up with Steely for a nap. Happy New Year to you and your family!! Jill, Michael, SteelyDan and Bailey Funderburke
Name: Mary Madden Emai: Starbuck006@aol.com Hi Mimmi, I just wanted to let you know that our "little boy" is so handsome. He and Teddy after a couple of hours are just great together. Teddy of course wants the pup to know whose the boss but other than that we are thrilled. Thank you for sending this beautiful boy to us. Mary Madden
Name: Kathy Leaverton Email email@example.com Hi Mimmi, Just a note to let you know the dog we purchased from you two months ago is the most important member of our family now. Bentley is loving, well mannered and the most adored animal we have ever owned. We are stopped everywhere by folks who love goldens and comment on how beautiful he is. Thanks to you for such a great job raising these animals. Kathy Leaverton &nsp;
Good morning Mimmi, I'm so sorry that I couldn't write I had to leave for work. I'm so glad that everything came right for you. It is truly by God's grace that we are given such special gifts. I use mine every day dealing with dying patients or families of dying patients It always seems to ease their suffering. So the gift extends to so many. Linda's love continues even though she is gone. God's love continues through us to each other if we just allow him to come into our lives. Logan has become another gift I bring him to work once a week and he sits ever so patient by the sides of the wheel chairs so he can be scratched behind the ear or patted. One of my patients was dying of cancer and she asked that I put Logan's front paws up on the bed so she could feel him. Logan put his head right next to hers was never afraid. I still find it so amazing how calm he is with everyone and yet so full of spunk when he plays with Dallas. Jim adores him, he is his little buddy. (not so little anymore) I am so happy that I made the right choice. If we remain open vessels for God he truly guides our every move. Be well Mimmi and God bless Love Rhea
Name: Alyson Dingman Email:firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Mimmi, Well she is in her crate and quiet! I am afraid I am going to jinx myself but she is Incredible! She sits, knows her name and does not cry in the crate!!!!!!!!KNOCK ON WOOD! We love her and the timing really ended up working out better. This way she was not passed around at Christmas dinner. It also kept the holiday going all day! We are so happy! Alyson
Name: Jim and Rhea Malloch Email:raya533@MSN.COM Comments: Hi Mimmi, Logan is a real treasure. Everyone at the vets couldn't believe how calm and well mannered he is. everywhere we go people ask what kind of a dog is he? His coat is so white and thick. You and Kevin have truly done a great job breeding these little guys it just doesn't get any better. Thanks Jim & Rhea Malloch
Name: Sandra Hill Email: email@example.com Hi Mimmi Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful puppy Duncan is turning out to be! He is really a character and his personality develops more each day. He is turning out to be everything and more that a Golden Retriever is supposed to be. Smart, affectionate, laid back and funny - I added the funny to the Golden standards. He goes for his Canine Good Citizen test tomorrow evening ..... at 7 mos its only a practice run ..... but the real one will be a piece of cake for him! After much pestering by the staff, I took him last weekend to my mother's assisted living facility for pet therapy. He was so good and the ladies just loved him. The ladies are now waiting for tricks .... so we will be working on that (I am just pleased with his obedience)! Now for the amazing part: I also took him to the memory care unit where the residents are in all phases of dementia and Alzheimer's. One of the assistants took us around to each resident and introduced Duncan and asked the resident if he/she wanted to pet Duncan. Duncan sat right beside me without me telling him to, not moving forward until I gave the ok. He then went over and laid his head in their lap or gently licked their hand. This is the puppy that 20 minutes before was being a typical mouthy golden puppy with everyone! I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful puppy he is. Keep up the good work! Sandra Hill
Hi Mimmi - Trust you had a great summer & that all is well. I've been meaning to send off these photos to you - sorry for the delay. I deserve a great big "I told you so" regarding Jack - he is an absolutely wonderful dog. He is smart, funny & really coming into his own. He has a wonderful demeanor & amazing personality - I am thankful every day that I made the decision to make him part of my family. I think I knew it all along but probably was a bit skewed emotionally at first after losing Jake after 14 years...I wanted to share these photos with you (& hopefully visitors to your webpage). The snow pictures were taken in Oregon over the summer - I was astounded that at the end of June there was still 20 + feet of snow! As you can see Jack had a great time. Along with our morning runs (2 miles every day - arrrggghhh!!!) one of Jack's favourite pastimes is watching TV. I've never seen a dog watch just about anything so intensely including commercials - he's in his own little world when Animal Planet is on! Again I hope all is well with you & yours & I will send more photos again soon... Christine & "Jack"
Dear Mimmi, Rufus, (Rufy for me) is absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed him for 2 days over the weekend. He is too lovely for words. We love his white coat and black belly and his lovely blond ears. He is learning little by little and we just love having him. I cant say that enough number of times. Thank you for sending him to us. You do a lovely job with this wonderful creation of God, please don't stop doing what you do. With best of regards, Shobha.

Name: Jessica Schulte Comments: Three years ago I bought my best friend Boomer from your kennel. He is beautiful, smart, and has a great personality. We go and do everything togeather he is amazing, and kind of a local celebrity in San Luis Obispo. His parents are Tottelina and Peace Dove. I have looked at other kennels but nothing has compaired to your breeding quality and temperament. I would like to expand my family and adopt another puppy. Your phone number has changed since the last time we talked, please give me a call when you get back from Europe. I was just in Switzerland and Germany for the heat wave! I hope you managed to stay cool and safe. Best Reguards Thank you, Jessica Schulte
Name: JERI CHITTIM E-mail address: JERICHITTIM@YAHOO.COM I have had my wonderful boy for 6 weeks now. I can truly say he is the best dog I have ever had. He is so sweet and loving,very gentle with my granddaughter and so willing to please. I would reccomend white dove dogs to anyone looking for a retriever. We are stopped everywhere we go and asked what kind of dog he is, he is gorgeous and his personality is more than I could ever have asked for--he is almost human. He is spoiled rotten (sleeps in bed with me) and the joy of my life. Thank-you so much for giving me the chance to raise one of your special boys, "PLUTTEN" knows we love him and we have been blessed to have him in our home. We will have another one of your dogs in the future. Jeri PS--Mimmi thanks for putting up with me and all my emails, I do appreciate you.
Name: Wendy E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I just wanted to say thank you for giving me my two best friends in the whole world. I have had my two dogs now for 2 1/2 years. They are my family, my best friend and they bring me so much joy. I don't know what I would do if I did not have them. I have two girls from you. Their names are Luka and Lola. We have a pictures taken every Christmas for Christmas cards. Everyone who has seen them, can't believe have pretty they are. Once again,thanks for being the people that you are and sharing your great animals whith so many people. I feel very special that I was one of the chosen ones. I love more than anything in the world. Thanks again and look forward for more pictures of my babys coming your way. Have a great day. Wendy

Such wonderful temperaments! We can't wait to get our puppy this June. Too bad we didn't get to meet you. Have a wonderful stay in Europe!
Wednesday, April 19th 2006 - 02:08:11 PM Name: Terry & Benn Jacobsen Comments: Hey Mimi- Benn and I took the beautiful coastal trek to your ranch from Santa Barbara. When we arrived, I felt like we were in Golden heaven. All the dogs are breathtaking in their beauty as well as in their temperaments. Their heads, skeletal structures, and coats all spell healthy! I was truly impressed that Tommy knew them all by name. Thank you for this opportunity. Now, we are doubly excited to get a spring litter male puppy. When you guys find out who is actually impregnated, will you let us know and the due dates or would we just check the website regularly to see updated information. Im curious now what exactly happens after the deposit was made. Thank you for your time. Cant wait! Sincerely, Terry and Benn Jacobson
Name: Mary Guarascio E-mail address: Mary.email@example.com Comments: Hi Mimmi, we cannot thank you enough for our Vinny that we have now had for 3 months. He is such a brillant puppy and we just love how he adores our 4 year old golden. They are really great pals. We consider ourselves very lucky to have one of your puppies. He was well worth evey penny we spent and then some. Every day is a new adventure to see what new thing he will do. I'm excited to start obedience classes with him in the next two weeks. But I can honestly say he doesn't even need them. Again thanks much and if anyone out there is really interested in one of their dogs, you will never be sorry. Thank you...
Name: Jack Fredrickson E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi Mimmi, Just wanted to let you know how well Barley is doing.He has adjusted extremely well and the other two older females love playing with him except when he gets a little too rambunctious. He is very smart, is house-broken, has no bad habits, and loves people. I don't know how you train them when very young but I could not ask for a more perfect dog . I love the other two dogs and they are very sweet but he is going to be a truely great friend and companion in the future. Thank you again. I researched and talked to many breeders of goldens before deciding on a white dove puppy. The price was more than I originally intended to spend but I am content in my belief that no better male golden retriever can be found in the U.S.. His temperment is outstanding and his conformation beautiful. This is my fourth golden over the years and he represents the best attributes of the breed. Incidentally, I have contacted Pam P. who have a female litter mate named Brooklyn and their family feels the same way. Thanks, Jack
Name: Dillon's Outstanding Goldens E-mail address: email@example.com Homepage URL: http://www.dogoldens.com Comments: A special thank you for allowing us to share our love for the breed.
Name: Mike Chapman Comments: Hello! We purchased our dog in December and we couldnt be happier as a family. I believe he came from Cookie or Pixie and he is the best dog we have ever had. I have attached photos and we ended up naming him Maximus. I would like to know if it is possible to get his papers. I would also like to see how we can get on your waiting list for a female puppy. He needs someone to play with. Thank you so much for a great dog.
Mike Chapman Thursday, March 30th 2006 - 09:43:13 AM Name: Dianne E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Beautiful dogs!! Met my first white retriever a few weeks ago and fell in love. If their temperaments are as good as their looks, these are fantastic dogs! Sophie is indeed beautiful and Rupert looks like a fun fellow.

Name: margaret ann E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hello White Dove GR's Founders from Perth, Western Australia. Having had two Goldens, firstly a lovely girl, followed by a gorgeous boy, we thoroughly appreciate just how lovely your dogs are and wish to congratulate you on a terrific website in which to enjoy the photos. Have seen a Platinum Blonde dog here at the beach and wondered about her colour. They are not common here by any means. I hope to have another dog maybe next year when a Breeder I've heard of in the country will be willing to breed from her beautiful golden Gold after she's had a break this year. I thank you for the enjoyment I've had browsing thru your site and send you warm wishes from sunny WA along with hugs for your beautiful family of Goldens.

She has been a delight since the first day we picked her up from the airport. She is now 4 years old and has grown into the most loving, obedient, beautiful dog imaginable. Please give her parents Max and Annie a big hug for us. We are stopped whenever we go out. No one can believe how beautiful she is. What a wonderful addition she has been to our family. Her best friend is our other golden, Copper. They are inseperable.

Name: Pam Prussel E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: We picked up our puppy,from Jinty's litter, 3 weeks ago. We cannot imagine not having her in our lives. Brooklyn is the sweetest and best dog we have owned. She does well with not only our four kids but all the kids that come in and out of our home. Everyone has commented on her temperment and how calm and friendly she is. Not only that she is absolutely beautiful! If we did not already have another dog I would be on the waiting list for another White Dove puppy. Goldens are a wondeful breed and you have bred your dogs well. Thank you!
Name: Anne Neathery E-mail address: Neatherland@msn.com Comments: Our puppy arrived 2 days before Christmas and we had to keep him a secret from our two little boys. (5 and 4) It was so hard to not tell them about him. Santa was to bring him on Christmas eve. My husband Derek built a box for him and cut holes in it. Then he wrapped it with Christmas paper and made a top for it that could easily slide off. Then on Christmas eve we put our Puppy in the box and put him under the tree. He layed quietly until he heard the boys. Then he started to move around a bit making the box move as well. My youngest son noticed the movement first. When I asked him what was in the box he said very seriously "Santa is in there". We continued with our openning of gifts and the puppy continued to move in the box and then my other son noticed it. Finally they could not stand it any more and they just had to open the box. We made them both do it at the same time. They lifted the top and the puppy popped his head out. They both screemed with delight. We took the puppy out of the box and he licked faces and wagged his tail. The boys forgot for a momment that there were more gifts. He made our night. The boys have been enjoying him ever since. He is a wonderful addition to our family.

We named our new girl Sophie, and she's been a source of love and joy to us ever since. She's probably the most intelligent dog we've ever owned. She's naturally obedient and so very loving. Her parents are Poky and Max and she's a wonderful addition to our family. You can check out my homepage for plenty of photos of her. Best regards to Kevin and family, Kathy

Name: Sharon Tremper E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I saw these beautiful pups on the Oprah magazine. I am a golden retriver owner 3 times. I just purchased my newest little baby in October and I think she needs a friend. How much are you puppies and do we need to come out to the CA area to see them? They are just beautiful animals and I'd never get anything other than a golden. I still have mut from 12 years ago and she's not any fun for our new little girl. I'd love for our new one to have someone, besides us, to play with. She loves to play with everything and is a champion sock collector. My last golden, who had cancer to soon in his short life (7 years) was a champion frisbee catcher and underware collector. He is missed more than anyone will know. What a special dog. Our mutt is now deaf and he would always go up stairs and get her for us. He also got the paper every morning. We have trained our new girl to go up and get the older dog from under the bed. She catches on quick. We spoil our dogs terribly. They are family and wrapped around our hearts. We go on vacation, they go on vacation with us. I'd love more info on how to obtain one of your goldens.

She is just stunning. My family and I just love her. She has slipped right into this family nicely. She is very well behaved and extremely smart. I will recommend your Ranch to anyone that is looking for a golden. This is our 4th golden and by far the prettiest of all. Thank you for all of your patience and for making everything go so nice and smoothly. It is quite obvious that you people know what you are doing and that you have many years of experience with this.

Whiskey was born 1/11/04. We would be interested in trading pictures and stories with the parents of his littermates. Whiskey (a.k.a "The Bear", "Sexy Beast", "The Incredible Whiskey Bear") is a dream come true. He's absolutely gorgeous, perfect temperment, amazing personality, very smart, loved by all who meet him. He's a therapy dog, giving love to patients in Livermore, CA and children in the PAWS reading program at the Pleasanton Library.

Monday, October 3rd 2005 - 09:15:07 PM Name: Ruth Ann Edmondson E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hi Kevin, I visited the ranch in March 2004 after flying in from my second home in Hawaii on my way back to Texas, my daughter insisted that I stop and get a white golden. We already had a golden in Hawaii and a Husky in Texas, anyway, Mimmi picked me up at the airport and took me to the ranch, I was so amazed to see the wonderful beautiful dogs, I felt like I had died and gone to heaven!! When we drove up they all came up to greet us, what a sight, I will never forget it!! After a couple of hours, I picked out my puppy, she is the daughter of Max and Pixie, I named her Lily since it was so close to Easter and she was so beautifully white! Mimmi took us back to the airport, she told Lily how spoiled she expected her to be, sleeping on the bed most likely and Mimmi dashed off to meet you for lunch. I was so impressed with the wonderful way the ranch looked, how clean everything was and how friendly Mimmi was to visit with and take me back and forth to the airport. I was so sorry to hear about her illness and pray that she is doing well, I am so happy to see that you are still maintaining such care to the wonderful white goldens and the ranch. After hearing of Mimmi's illness I was worried about the dogs but am so relieved to see that you have taken such excellent care of them! An update on Lily, she is now coming up on 21 months old, she weighs 87 lbs, our other golden from Hawaii,Jake has been in Texas for a while since we sold one house and bought a different one, the two goldens, Jake, Lily and the husky, Blade spend most of their days playing and romping together, Lily rules the roost for sure...and yes she sleeps on the bed every night, she has ever since she came home with me, no crate for that special lady, she has a wonderful personality, a bit shy but loves to be with someone in the family every minute or getting after the boys, Jake and Blade, they have all been nuetered and she was spayed as a puppy so they are all just happy playmates. She is most likely going to live in Hawaii next month with my adult children who live there and Jake who will be flying across the pond to return to Hawaii, she will spend her days in a lovely green valley house beside a stream on Oahu and will be taken to the famous north shore beaches several times a week. What a life!!!! We love her dearly and can't imagine life without our wonderful delightful white dove golden!!! Keep up the good work, I hope to get another beautiful dog again someday from youf Goldens, they are the most magnificent dogs on the planet!!! Take care, God Bless to you and Mimmi Aloha, Ruth Ann Friday, September 30th 2005 - 03:10:06 AM

Name: Nancy Bevans E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Yesterday my husband and I arrived at your ranch at our scheduled noon appt with Tommy to purchase our dream puppy. It was 106 degress in the shade. As hot as it was we were impressed to find all these beautiful dogs had plenty of shade, impeccably clean pens,lots of fresh, clean water to drink, & were happy and content. We appreciated Tommy's professionalism and strict guidelines to protect all the dogs and property. It was of great comfort to know customers are highly screened and not allowed to enter the pens, and that our puppy had not been handled by strangers. We sat outside a pen of 5 gorgeous female puppies for an hour until we made our choice. Then Tommy gave her a bath she was even more beautiful. Thank you. Monday, August 1st 2005 - 12:57:32 AM

Name: Brenda Dunn Comments: We'll take some current pictures of Reilly and send them to you. He is really a beautiful dog and we get a lot of compliments on him. Some people have asked us if he is a Great Pyrenees..I guess because of his color and his size. He is a quick learner also..he was going in and out of the pet door in just a few days and was practically potty trained in a week. He has had a few accidents but for the most part has done really well with it. He's also learning to be patient when getting fed. When we first got him he would go nuts at feeding time and we figured he had to fight for his food with 8 other litter mates. We also figured he won most of the time based on his size :))) Anyway he now sits on his rug and waits for his food. We are pretty amazed of how quick he is learning. He's going to be an awesome dog, especially after he goes through his obedience training at 6 months old. Anyway, we'll keep in touch! Thursday, May 26th 2005 - 02:54:06 PM

Name: Tom Piatak Comments: Hello from Florida! I have a question regarding spaying. Our vet is recommending Mia be done next week, she will be 4 months. He said some folks wait until they have one cycle, however, as Mia is getting so big he feels it is easier on large breeds from a recovery standpoint to do them earlier. He also recommended that I contact you for advice. There are conflicting views on when to spay, what do you recommend? Also, such a small world- Today at school I ran into another family, The Wilensky's who own one of your dogs. She is Cloae, and she is one year old! Today at car pool we are going to "get the girls together" for a meet and greet!!! Mia continues to be the "greatest girl". She is so wonderful with the kids, and Tom and I are amazed at just how bright she is- Luna and Pepper did well with this one. She is growing by leaps and bounds. I worry about her upcoming surgery- however, this is the right thing for both her and us. I already informed her best friend (a yellow lab 3 doors down) that Mia will be out of commission for play dates for a few days. People tell me that dogs gain weight after being spayed, but we are not concerned. Mia gets plenty of exercise and we have kept her on the food (have needed to increase the amount a bit) you recommended. She had her first beach experience last weekend- and she loved the sand and the birds. She was a bit hesitant with the water, but I know that will come in time. This summer she will be spending a great deal of time at the ocean, and I am sure she will become accustomed to the sounds. This weekend will be her first boat ride. We are taking her to St. Augustine which is a two hour trip. She looks adorable in her new life jacket- and is looking forward to seeing my Mom's dogs. I have my pictures in for development so they will be coming soon. I tell everyone about your ranch and our perfect puppy! Thank you again, and know that she is very happy! Patty and Tom ps. I filed my AKC paperwork- Her reigistered name is White Dove Princess Mia Thursday, April 28th 2005 - 09:55:16 AM
Name: Nica Gianulias Comments: Dear Kevin: I Hope you are well...just wanted to give you an update on our little guy.He loves to run with me...he has a lot ofenergy. He begins his formal training in another week. He listens to "goto your bed, go to your kennel, and sit." He loves banana chips as a special treat. He is a great eater...he is now 38 pounds and is long andlean with BIG paws and a long tail. He loves the kids and looks for them in their rooms when it's only he and I in the house. He does great on car rides and loves bathes. He plays independently with his toys so well, belly-up...he's hilarious. He has received all of his shots & rabies and is growing like a weed. The vet thinks he will be between 60-80 pounds. I can't wait to teach him to swim. Thank you for the emails of his siblings from the other owners...it was helpful. Take care, Nica Thursday, April 28th 2005 - 09:45:04 AM
Name: Kathy Berthiaume Comments: Hi Kevin, Hope you're doing well. I wrote you during the winter that Sophie's nose had faded to pinkish in the middle. Well, now that warmer weather is here it has turned back to the really deep black. I think it was just a temporary condition due to the cold dry weather. Also, she does love to use her nose as a snow plow which probably didn't help :) She is such a joy to us and is the most wonderful dog. She receives compliments everywhere she goes, and she's so well behaved. I just can't express how much we love her. You are doing a great job with your kennel and I am so glad we chose one of your puppies. Best regards, Kathy Berthiaume Friday, April 22nd 2005 - 11:26:58 AM

I saw one of your dogs was in the Ohio circuit, if you dont mind me asking, what city is she in? We live in Norwalk, Ohio 60 miles west of Cleveland.

Name: lisa & steve E-mail address: email@example.com Homepage URL: http://www.leeboves.com Comments: Kevin: we picked up our Pixie pup, Bug, at the end of October. She is now almost 6 mos. old, and must be the world's best dog. Everybody who meets her comments not just on how cute she is (as you can see for yourself on www.leeboves.com), but on her extraordinarily sweet, mellow disposition. She is innately well-behaved. When none of the other kids in Puppy School could sit still for even half a second, our little Bug would rest at my feet. She'll gleefully shred any paper product she can get her paws on, and proudly collects our belongings in her beds around the house, but she hasn't chewed a shoe or gotten into the trash or ruined anything at all of value -- a tremedous feat. A colleague of mine similarly raved about her Golden from you who, (we figured out, is our Bug's great uncle), which is why we found you in the first instance. We could not recommend your dogs more highly. Thanks! Wednesday, January 26th 2005 - 11:39:16 AM

She started obedience training today and she's catching on so fast! We're using Bark Busters. They do in-home training and I love their philosophy. They teach you to speak 'dog talk' which she understands so much better than the human words we usually bombard them with. She's responding to it beautifully.

He is so eager to please and so trainable ! I have had two other Golden Retrievers before getting your dog. As much as we love " Goldens ", none has ever been as intelligent, faithful, playful, beautiful, and mellow as this dog. I've had people follow me to find-out where we got him ! I've even had Golden Retriever breeders want to know who bred him ! His disposition is such that I have been told that he needs to go into the hospitals/retirement homes as a rehabilitaion dog ! He has certainly filled our " empty nest " with lots of love and faithfulness. Thank you Lena for your insight into the breeding of these wonderful pets. Monday, September 27th 2004 - 04:33:38 PM

Name: Ed & Patty Morley Comments: Hi Lena, I just wanted to say Hello to you as it going on two years since we received Buddy from you in Santa Barbara. It has been just wonderful since we brought Buddy into our family. He is doing just fine. I don't have a digital camera to send a picture but he is beautiful. Buddy is everything you described on your website and more. He is so kind and gentle that I wonder if he is human. He is so well behaved that our family is amazed. My nieces and nephews all want their parents to get them a dog just like ours. Buddy completed obedience training at the top of his class and we are about to begin advanced training as I wish to take him on visits to Hospitals for companion dog work. He has a magical way of bringing smiles to everyone he meets. I would like to know if you feel he would be a worthy candidate for breeding. I can't help but think he would make the most wonderful puppies. He is in perfect health and only needs the x-rays and eye-exam to be ready. I am also interested in getting Buddy a compasnion for the Home. I am interested in a female German Shephard. You might be saying why a German Shephard? Well, we had a recent burglary at our new home. While Buddy is the most friendly dog in the world, I fear he wouldn't even put up a fight if someone wanted to take him. Who cares about the material things, I don't want someone to ever take my dog! So I want to get him a companion who will be a bit more protective instinctively. This way my dog will have a companion as well as guardian. We have much larger home now with 15,000 sq. feet of land. They would have have plenty of room to run and play together. I trust your opinion and would like your feedback. Sincerely, Ed & Patty Morley Tuesday, August 3rd 2004 - 03:24:03 PM

She has adapted well to our Alaskan weather. Her favorite pass times are running through our pond chasing the ducks and loving on her family members. Heath and I flew Hana home with us from Creston on Alaskan Airlines as a carry on. She loved the ride and had plenty of attention in the airport. We love her so much...Thank you Lena for a wonderful opportunity to have her in our lives.

Name: marsha sisney E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Dear Lena, I am so happy to have finally found your web site. My family and I are great friends of your dad's. We live in Rockford, Il. which is 90 miles west of Chicago. We first met your dad and Monica in Sarasota, Florida and spent many Christmas' together down there. When they brought the puppies from Finland to you, they stopped in Chicago to visit us. I was drooling over the pictures of the puppies and hoped some day I would get one. By now, I imagine those puppies are breeding. I am so impressed with everything on your web site. Your property looks absolutely outstanding. What an awesome place to breed dogs. They are so lucky. I also have never seen such beautiful dogs in all my life. The pictures of Helene's wedding and of your dad on Siesta Key are all too familiar. We still stay in touch. We have a blonde golden named Maggie. She has a nice boxy build and weighs about 55 pounds. She will be 8 years old in November. She is an extremely happy and energetic dog. Most people think she's around 2!!!! She runs 3 miles a day with me. I also do agility training with her and she loves that very much. We have been going to classes every week since she was a pup. I am oh so curious as to the temperment of your goldens. It sounds as though they are perfect. I have had many different breeds of dogs and know that I want to stay with goldens. I would love to hear from you about your pups, availabilities and procedures in obtaining one them. Thank you so much, Marsha Sisney Sunday, February 8th 2004 - 12:25:07 PM
Name: Celeste Gilles Comments: Hello Lena I am always so glad when I go back to revisit your website and still find Charlies adorable pictures there (especially the one of Graham and Charlie on the boat); thank you for keeping us a part of your extended family. I think it has been a couple of years since our last correspondence we now have a 17 month old son named Trent, and Trent and Charlie are the best of friends. Trents first word no joke was Charlie, before mama or dada even. So even though Charlie may have felt a little neglected after Trent first arrived he adjusted wonderfully and is still a huge part of our family!! I would love to send some pictures to you, however they are not digital and my scanner is need of repair. Can you please give me an address and I will forward some updated pictures to you? Your dogs still look wonderful and when we are ready for #2 I will let you know!! Thank You, Celeste Gilles Thursday, February 5th 2004 - 09:29:24 AM

Name: Oberholtzer E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hello from Phoenix, Arizona. We have just recently celebrated ?Luke?s? 1-year anniversary of joining our family. My husband and I have twin five year old girls and Luke completes our family. He is so sweet and truly a wonderful companion to our girls. He is so gentle and very playful. The girls call him their brother and he is always included in all family drawings and always mentioned in their stories. He is so calm and sensitive. He is a beautiful dog, with a healthy white coat. All of our friends are in awe of his sweet and obedient demeanor. He has never received formal training, and yet he is perfect on a leash, comes when he is called and never leaves our front yard unless he is given permission. He is an amazing animal that continues to give our family unconditional love. Sincerely, The Oberholtzers Tuesday, November 18th 2003 - 08:19:21 AM
Name: Terisa Comments: Dear Lena- I am so much in love with my sweet golden pup from you kennel; so thanks for the excellent work in breeding such a quality litter. Everyone I meet remarks his unique coloring and exquisit personality, kind and loving. Kindergarten puppy training was a blast and so is obedience class. Anyway, besides singing your praise, I am very interested in your foster program and wondering if I could get some information on qualifying. Please let me know.. I think Kalvin would greatly benefit with having another one of his kind around my home. I need to take some digital pictures this weekend on one of our hikes to show you how well he is doing! Sincerely, Terisa Estacio Thursday, September 25th 2003 - 10:35:37 AM
Name: Julie Brewer Comments: My family adopted two dogs from Lena this spring. They are the absolute best dogs. Not only are they stunningly beautiful (we get stopped on the street constantly) but they have the absolute best dispositions! They are extrememly smart and well behaved. I adopted from Lena because I had read such wonderful comments about their calm personalities. They really are that amazing! If you are lucky enough to adopt a white dove golden/or foster as my brother did you will not be disappointed. They are worth every penny plus more. Thanks Lena! We feel so lucky to have Luna and Burly!!! Thursday, August 21st 2003 - 03:02:08 PM

It has been such a pleasure doing business with Lena, she has made what can be a difficult process sometimes nice and easy and smooth. "Diamond" is a wonderful pup, getting along with the rest of the four legged family just wonderfully already. I am hoping to get another puppy or two, and can't wait to do so. Thanks again Lena for making everything so pleasant, and for such a beautiful puppy. I can't wait to get her in the show ring and show her off. Colleen Thursday, May 1st 2003 - 08:00:26 AM

You can find it on the internet if you go to "Landofpuregold.com." Scroll down to "Cast Your Golden Votes." (Be sure and vote for my entry!) Journey and Spirit are both doing great. Spirit is really living up to her name! She is so full of life and love. She dashes out the door past Journey and they spend the day chasing each other and playing all the time! Give all of Journey and Spirit's brothers and sisters a hug for me! Tonya Saturday, March 8th 2003 - 05:45:03 AM

She is beautiful, mellow, and has the sweetest personality. In fact, people stop us all the time to get her autograph. (Well, they do stop us and tell Sophie how pretty and special she is).They just smile when then see her. In fact, Sophie wants to know if maybe next year she can get a baby sister or brother. Thanks so much for our wonderful new family member. Best Wishes, Robbi Rucker Malibu, CA
Comments: Dear Lena, I am still playing with the idea of getting Journey a sister. We are currently dog sitting for a friend and Journey is having a ball. I would love to have another golden. Do you have any females available now? Who are the parents? This will probably be my last one, so I am waiting for that someone special! (My friends think I have lost my mind, I'm so crazy about my dog!) When is the next litter due? This dog would be a family pet only, not for show. I really like the light color. Thanks for your help. Journey has really been my guardian golden over the past year. His companionship has helped me deal with the death of several of my relatives including my Mother. Look forward to hearing from you again. Tonya Tuesday, August 27th 2002 - 07:41:28 PM

Name: Mike Martin E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Lena, It has been a while since our last email, so I am overdue in letting you know about Jake. He is coming in to his own as a mature young man, and he continues to be the love of our life. Lena, we have had several dogs, each being a very special member of our family. But, with all honesty, Jake is the treasure of them all. He is well behaved, a real lover boy, and even a watch dog (well, sort of). He is an absolute fanatic about playing ball and still lets the cat push him around. I am attaching a couple of recent pictures. The first picture shows him ready for the first pitch of a ball game (notice the right front foot). Lena, thank you so much for Jake, he is absolutely wonderful. Regards, Mike Thursday, August 22nd 2002 - 06:50:38 PM
Name: The Schireman Family E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hi Lena My family can't thank you enough for this beautiful puppy! We have had goldens for 11 years and this is the best puppy we have ever had. He is so calm and well mannered. I have never had a puppy who sleeps through the night, all we have to say to our Bret Boone is, it's bed time and he gets in his crate. Our puppy was flown up to Washington state and the follow up with Lena was wonderful! You can tell that these puppies were brought up with a lot of love. If your thinking of purchasing a golden you have came to the right place. The Schireman Family! Sunday, August 11th 2002 - 08:32:54 PM

Name: Amy Keehn E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Dear Lena, The more I look at these pictures of your ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS Goldens, the more I know that this is the dog I want. My husband and I recently lost our senior Golden and are absolutely heartbroken. We very much want another Golden and both have really been taken by the idea of a blone one. However, we were completely unaware of the fact that anyone bred these ultra platinum color. We are most anxious to hear from you as to how long we might have to wait (and wait we will) to have the honor of bringing one of these truly exquisite dogs into our home. I had sent you an email a short time ago, and we hope to hear back from you soon. Thank you for breeding these beautiful animals. We look forward to hearing from you, Amy and Scott in Portland, Oregon. Sunday, June 9th 2002 - 09:30:36 PM

Name: Judy Gillispie E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Lena: FatJack is down on the floor behind me, as usual. He is typically where one is and often underfoot! He is just 8 months old today. He's about half way through basic obedience...smartest dog I have ever had. It's a lot of fun just going through the paces with Jack. He's been real busy "helping" us paint the outside of the house. Each day we have to clean off both yellow and red paint. Everyone he meets falls in love with his sweetness. And, the boy is getting huge. Close to 80# with lots more growing to come from the size of his feet and amount of loose skin. Hugs to you and the furfaces. Judy Thursday, May 16th 2002 - 10:15:19 AM
Name: Elaine E-mail address: CWELAINE@aol.com Comments: Hi, Lena, how are you and your wonderful family and dogs? I've sent you some copies of Cycle World magazine with pictures of Boone in it. He's really small on the cover, but the one in the Table of Contents is pretty big. He's soooooo cute and wonderful. Everyone that meets him just falls in love with him. One woman in the neighborhood said, "He's so cute and sweet it makes my heart melt." I enjoy your website and seeing all the dogs. The only problem I have is seeing those new puppies. I want a doggie ranch. Boone will be 5 months old this coming week. I just can't rave enough about him. So, if you ever need anyone to be a reference for your whole "deal" let them talk to me. Keep in touch, you sweetheart! Lots of love, Elaine Anderson Monday, April 29th 2002 - 03:02:16 PM
Name: Anita Conklin E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi Lena! Nevada is doing awesome, what a sweet girl she is. We just received all her pedigree papers, shes officially Sierra Nevada. Thanks for the great name! She has become my shadow we go everywhere together! She is probably the smartest dog I have ever known; she learns things in a snap. She is willful with a mind of her own, but then what toddler isnt? She lights up when my son walks into the room and everyone on the school bus calls out to her during pick-up and drop off. Her tail wags so fast youd think shed wag it right off! I of course stay tuned to your web page the new pups are adorable. I see Chanelles pup is still available and of course Hal wanted me to inquire about him, again. So, I guess the questions are how old is he now, how much is he now, and would you sell him as a companion dog or would you prefer to wait for someone who would show him. We have both been smitten with him from the first moment we laid eyes on him and Hal was surprised he was still available. (Me too) Hope all is well with you and your family. Anita
Name: John Singerling E-mail address: Singerling@aol.com Comments: Not all heroes are people! We love our Maggie too! This is a true story which happened on 9-11-01. James Crane worked on the 101st of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. He is blind so he has a golden retriever named Daisy. After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love. She darted away into the darkened hallway. Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112. On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building. But she wasn't through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes she ran back in the building. On her second run, she saved 392 lives. Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears. Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. "She led us right to the people, before she got injured" the fireman explained. Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. The next week, Mayor Guiliani rewards Daisy with the Canine medal of Honor of New York. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win such an honor. [copied from NEW YORK TIMES 9-19-01 Not all heroes are people] Sunday, April 21st 2002 - 07:54:44 AM
