Holly.jpg

Holly came to us in 1995. She's a light to medium golden with a beautiful temperament. In her prime she was a 68lb girl and stood 21.5 inches at the withers. Ever so obedient from day one she never wore a lead and prefered heeling instead. We said fine! She was Dundee's companion and now she's the mentor to the young ones. Holly was never bred which was a shame but not in our program at the time. She's a great quality dog with wonderful angulation, level topline and has great reach and drive still today at nearly 11yrs old. She has always and still loves to retrieve and swim. She voluntarily retired herself from hunting. Most of all she is a loving family pet who we love dearly.

It has taken me over a year after her passing to share how great Holly was. From when I got her she stuck close by on our off lead walks . Picking up the smallest twig and carrying it so proudly. She continued this for her whole 14 years! She ventured into the Riviere du Diable up north in March at 4 months old, loving the water, but very cold at this time, and the expression on her face was priceless! She was the most obedient dog without having done one class. A fantastic swimmer who has taught the younger dogs 'how it's done'. She loved to mentor the younger dogs; wise beyond her years! We will miss her so much as she was very special and such a pleasant dog to own. Good-bye my Holly you were a great joy in my life and I am so happy you are not suffering.
