a bit late, but Finn celebrated his 10th Birthday few days ago.
Happy Birthday, Finn!!!
You prove that 10 is only a number in your case. We had a wonderful picking-up season together, you’re still the one of the most reliable dogs handler can ever have. The best sparing partner for young dogs here and the best dog ever for my daughter who is trying to learn the secrets from our retriever world. The Goldens' world definetely needs more dogs like he is.
I wish you the best health from the bottom of my heart so we can enjoy as much trainings, hunting seasons and many more together ;-)
We wish Happy Birthday and all the best to all Finn’s siblings!

Our picking-up season started on Saturday with ducks. Challenging weather conditions and difficult retrieves. We had only wounded ducks and long blinds, not one mark. Very happy about Finn, Toffee and Lou, especially Lou was just great today on all wounded birds, she showed huge determination and patience and really surprised me a lot ❤️
Not many pictures as the weather was really bad, but I was happy to catch one of the Lou’s retrieve where she fought really long time with one duck and “he” fought very long time with her, scratching her face, hitting her eyes, she lost him more times, but on the end Lou won! If I would have a steak there, she would get it 🙂.

Very happy for both and especially for Toffee that she is completely healthy girl. Our picking-up season is over and we are waiting for Toffee's season now and looking forward for her first litter in next months ;)
Som veľmi spokojná za oboch, naša poľovačková sezóna skončila a čakáme na háranie Toffee a tešíme sa na jej prvý vrh v nasledujúcich mesiacoch ;)
we did it .. cold game test with Finn in challenging rainy and foggy weather on challenging corn field and sugar beets. 196 points out of 200, lost only 4 points on the flushing test, pity Finn is not a spaniel or pointer :D, all other tests he got full points. For me he was just perfect!
They tested: nose (during whole test), obedience (during whole test), reaction to the shots (during whole test), heel work (during whole test), 20 minutes of flushing, blind with feathered game, blind with haired game, rabbit tracking, retrieving from deep water (ducks)
Finn needed this test to enter more picking up days here.
when dreams come true .. dream to have a special male dog with superb character again after Cliff's death.
When I met him first time more than a year ago, I fell in love with his very open and honest character and now it's real. He is with us already some time and it was the best decision I have ever made. Big pleasure to have such a great dog here. Love you so much my little bear :)
Thank you so much Lucy for your trust and Michael & Petra for a big help and making my dream real!
Meet Finn ;)
