Kathy Eddy is proud to report that her “Magic” earned a TDX title at the Hudson Valley Tracking Club test on October 2nd. This also earned her a VCX. She is now Am/Can CH Comstock’s Gift of the Magi TDX, JH, VCX. Kathy reports that after a rough start, she buckled down to succeed on a track that was 3 hours, 40 minutes old, and close to a spot where a number of hikers had recently passed. Never one to rest on her laurels, Kathy says “now on to VST” Late news: Magic earned her WC Oct. 8 at the Northeastern Flat-Coat Retriever Club This was 8 weeks after whelping 8 puppies!



Karen Fennikoh‘s “Louise” has accumulated additional Grand Champion points by getting assorted BOB, BOS & SEL wins. She is now a Bronze Level Grand Champion:GCHB Amberglo’s Acceleration Thinking she might receive a certificate for Louise’s GCHB title, Karen was surprised and pleased to receive this bronze medallion:


Carol Russo is celebrating with Beckett (Picabo’s You Are My Sunshine, CGCA, THDE, CCA, NW1) after the Garden State GRC Specialty. Despite the brutally hot weather, Beckett wagged his tail through both Specialty shows I one day in his usual happy Golden way. He was rewarded with Best Veteran in Specialty in both the Somerset Hills KC/GSGRC morning Specialty under judge Diane Kepley and the afternoon Garden State GRC Specialty under judge Nancy Talbott. Having gone back in for BOB, Beckett even made the final out in a group of lovely specials! His name will now appear on the CH Tangleloft Odds on Pebwin CK WC VC Memorial Trophy. His handler, Diana Mason, has presented him beautifully and Carol is grateful to her for this, his 5th Best Veteran in Show win.

Further celebration ensued as Beckett achieved his Therapy Dog Excellent title! Beckett and Carol have visited young and old alike, logging over 200 visits while bringing that Golden happiness to others less fortunate. Carol and Beckett have a special partnership that is its own reward. So many hearts have been lifted by his presence and the team has met some wonderful people. Beckett originally began his Therapy Dog days with Carol’s daughter Amanda. Desiring a Girl Scout Gold Award project that would include her love of animals, Amanda trained and became certified with Beckett through Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. Her project, entitled “A Heart of Gold”, included visits to Scout troops, nursing homes and pediatric settings. Finally, Amanda was off to college and Carol was handed the lead. Carol and Beckett continue to make weekly visits to a nursing/rehabilitation facility where he has become a celebrity visitor! You are encouraged to pursue this wonderful activity with your Golden partner.
