Taylor was 22 1/2 inches high at the shoulder and weighed 62#. Ideal height for a female Golden is 21 1/2 to 22 1/2 inches. Suggested weight range is 55-65#. Taylor has earned her International Champion title, her American Kennel Club Rally Novice, Rally Advanced and one passing score toward her Rally Excellent title, her Canine Good Citizen certificate, and her Golden Retriever Club of America Certificate of Conformation Assessment.
Taylor had two litters. Her first litter was with Can & Int'l Ch Genesis's Chance At An Angel and produced three puppies, one female (Jamie) and two males (Hunter & Myka). I ended up keeping Jamie who has her own page on this site. Jamie has earned her AKC Companion Dog degree and is now SwanSun's You've Got A Friend CD.
Taylors second litter was with MHR1 Awrey's Semper Copper Redcloud SH WCX CCA. There were ten puppies, six females and four males. I ended up keeping Sapphire (who has her own page) and became Int Ch SwanSun's Fire N Rain CGC CCA. Ripley who went to an obedience, rally, tracking home has become Int Ch SwanSun's Alien Chaser UDT BN RE CGC CCA. Ripley also has her own page.
Hank the Duck Dog, from the Duke/Taylor pairing has chosen to carry on Daddy Duke's vocation of Duck Hunter! Hank's owner writes:
"Thought you might appreciate seeing one of your pups is a bit different
environment. HANK is a masterful retriever who will hold his own with
any Lab, yet does so with style, grace and affection, rather than the splashing
and crashing. He has no ribbons or trophies to show for his work, but is a
champion retriever ---true to his original breeding."
