With excellent health and temperaments, our puppies will bring love into any home.
2012, One of Our Best Years in the Ring!
It all started with our boy "Kuchi"-GrandChampion EagleRidge Return from Bombay- winning Best of Breed at the Eukanuba/AKC Classic, defeating 50 entered champions.

After Kuchi's success at Eukanuba, we sent him on the road with renowned all breed handler, Amy Booth. They immediately bonded and soon he was the #1 male Golden in the country, becoming a GrandChampion silver, Show Dog Hall of Fame, and a Judge's Award of Merit at the Golden Retriever National.

Next was EagleRidge's Alli Gator's turn. Soon after returning from Vancouver, BC where Alli starred in the Disney movie "Spooky Buddies" she began showing us her show potential. After sending her off with Amy Booth, she finished her championship in a couple of months. I finished her GrandChampionship within a couple of months after that.

After Amy & Phil Booth finished Alli's championship, we sent them "Shyla" Champion EagleRidge's Daughter of the Mountain, a Kuchi daughter. They finished her in just 2 months.

Shyla is getting back in shape after a trip to the whelping box where she reared 13 pups sired by our Champion Jeter. Look for Shyla back in the ring this summer in pursuit of her Grand Championship.
One of the most exciting time of this memorable year is when Amy returned EagleRidge Truckin' in Style "Charlie" as a new Champion in August. Charlie is owned by Chris & Jen Huppert and co-owned by us. With several different handlers, Charlie became a Grand Champion in little over a month. He also joined the Show Dog Hall of Fame about a month after that with back to back group 1's. While his cousin Kuchi was forced to the sidelines because he blew his coat, Charlie stepped up to fill his shoes at the 2012 AKC/Eukanuba Classic. He won Best of Opposite, defeating 37 male champions from around the country.

We would like to thank all of the AKC judges who have recognized the quality of our dogs. Also we thank all of the handlers who have made 2012 such a special year for us, especially Amy Booth of Blue Rose Kennels and her remarkable team. Thanks also to Chris and Jen Huppert for the great care and love and sparing no expense in the promoting of their boy Charlie. Watch for him in upcoming shows!
