Kikki is the golden everyone wants to stuff in a sherpa bag when they pick up a puppy. She is so enthusiastic about life, gets along great with other dogs, loves her pack and is the biggest people cuddler we own. If she can squeeze into your lap she will squeeze into your heart. She is training for Senior Hunter, TDX and is a wonderful hunting companion. She is a very biddable retriever, strong marking dog and is fast on land retrieves. Kikki is very quiet, settles in holding & duck blinds and when faced with long technical water retrieves she holds her line and is very honest in the water. She earned her Can JH (Junior Hunter) title in 4 straight passes, her Can TD (Tracking Dog) title on first attempt and Am WC at the GRCA National in 2013. We are very excited to work with this young girl! An easy keeper and the best puppy babysitter, Kikki is from our Bucket List Litter (Riley x Jenny)!

Kikki has a wonderful Golden expression, pleasing head, dark eye and correct scissors bite, no missing teeth and excellent pigment, (vert little fading in winter months). She stands 21 1/2 tall and weighs 63lb, is in good working condition, has wonderful athleticism and jumps effortlessly, very balanced front and rear with good movement. She carries a drip dry wavy coat with good undercoat and decent length of feathering for a hunting retriever. She has good bone, good length of neck, strong topline and excellent tail set & carraige.
Her pedigree combines exceptional field, obedience and performance pedigrees. Her sire Riley: A dog of a lifetime that lived 15 years with a performance record that matched his temperament and marking abiltiy which was OUTSTANDING!! His performance career, one to be admired by many. He ran 9 Derbies and accumulated 14 points, in the ribbons in 8 out of 9 derbies! He ran 4 Qualifying stakes and was always in the ribbons. He ran only 15 ALL AGE stakes lifetime and accumulated 13 points with an All Breed Amateur 1st, an All Breed Open 2nd, 1 Amatuer Jam and he WON the Open at the GRCA 1995 National Specialty. He earned his AKC Master Hunter Title in 6 passes out of 6 attempts. To some up his performance career, the two words that invariably come to mind are courage and consistency. He ran owner handled against some of the top Field Trial dogs in the country and left big paw prints to fill. Her grandsire Rooster captured my heart with his structure, type and athleticism and lived close to 16 years. He is a Oustanding sire, Master Hunter (over 50 passes lifetime) Utility dog and All Age Qualified. Like her dam Jenny (grandaughter of the famous Obedience Champion "Sixpack"), Kikki brings joy and laughter to her home, is a very healthy and happy Golden Retriever.
