Satchabrat MH MNH “Laney”
Feb 11 2002 to April 26 2012
In the spring of 2012 we lost our beloved Laney. None of our dogs liked to be photographed as much as Laney. At the Sportsman’s Show she was always the entertainer parading around on the table giving out business cards or hijacking empty water bottles. Often times she would trade the water bottle for a piece of jerky from our long time neighbors Oregon Trail Jerky. Laney will be remembered for her 3 Master National qualifications entering the Hall of Fame in 2010. Her daughter, AFC Special Touchs Satchacrazy Baileymae MH was the top Amateur Golden Retriever female in 2012. We miss you Laney, RIP.
Topbrass Satcha Marauder MH
Jan 16, 1996 to Dec. 25, 2009
On Christmas day of 2009 we said our goodbyes to “Satcha”. I’ve never had a dog that made me laugh as much as she did. Whether it was chasing her tail, she could catch it spinning in both directions, or parading through the house with her assortment of stuffed animals. On her first quail hunt when she was probably 10 months old she found a tennis ball. She hunted harder than any dog I have ever seen that day looking to fill a limit of fuzzy green balls. She was the mother of a Field Champion, of Master Hunters and of numerous fun loving Golden Retrievers.
Shade’s Irish Bailey MH MNH5
April 16, 1996 to Sept. 23, 2008
In Sept. of 08 we were saddened with the passing away of our beloved “Bailey”. She will always be remembered for her 5 Master National qualifications, for her spectacular points on pheasants and quail, for corning those she loved and for protecting Kim whenever I traveled. We are fortunate that her legacy lives on in her children including Fr. Jim’s Rebel Yell MH MNH7, Get Back JO-JO MH and Snoqualmie Rivers Irish Rebel MH.
Island Acres Quincy MH MNH4
- August 28, 1994 – Sept. 23, 2005
- “Quincy” was named after my hometown of Quincy, IL. He was the first dog I qualified at a Master National in 1997. He will also be remembered for breaking my heart at the 2000 Master National when he broke in the last series. “Bad dog!” He is survived by numerous Master Hunter titled dogs, Master National qualifiers, great hunters and loving companions.
