Our Golden Retriever Family

“Toby the Tenacious” – STARS and STRIPES of COUNCIL HOUSE
SR93787202 DOB: 7/4/16 (Michael and Eleshia)

“TOBY” is everything that is wonderful in a Golden. I guess a good moniker for him could be “Toby the tenacious”. He is loving, smart as a whip, very athletic and just an all around wonderful boy. He is beautiful and would love nothing more than to sit “ON” you all day, whenever he isn’t exploring or running. He is a very healthy and wonderful addition to our Willowcross Family.

IVY is one of our homegrown babies. Her mama is Willow and her daddy is Milo. She is very much a typical girl. She is so loving but does have her own opinion. She looks at me when I talk to her with the expression “what are you talking about”. She is a mama’s girl but when she is pregnant, she really craves more touching and loving. If she could be attached to me she would be. She is our own “Incredible Ivy”.

Steele is very precious to me because his father was my cooper.  Steele is named after cooper’s father.  Every day I can see more and more how much Steele is like his daddy.  Cooper had an accident during an ice storm and fell down the stairs from the deck to the yard.  He fractured something in his back which we were told was unfixable.  Steele was set to go to another home and when this happened I had to contact the other family because I couldn’t lose cooper and Steele.  I love all of my fur kids deeply.  Each has their own distinct and individual personality.  Since Korie is his mama and cooper his daddy I can see some of both in him.  However if I close my eyes and put my hands on him, they feel exactly the same.  What would we do without them.  “spectacular, soft hearted, sensational steele”

Kind, Kissable, Kuddly (I Know C), Korageous (Again C)

Korie comes to us from our very good friend in Hungary, beata’ grasselli who has Babelsbergi kennels.  Beata’ and i have been friends for over ten years,  Babelsbergi means “to love forever”.  She breeds the most wonderful fur kids.  Many of which are therapy dogs in Hungary, goldens by design are the most perfect family dogs.  They live to please you and you have to be very careful to not speak harshly to them because it hurts their spirit.  Many if not nearly all of my original fur kids have come from some (only two) wonderful breeders in Hungary, her beauty is not only on the outside but also on the inside.  I just love my fur babies.

Beautiful Beckah.  By looking at these pictures can you guess what Beckah loves to do?   Exactly, run, fetch, play ball and frisbee and most of all cuddle.   I am excited to see how she will be as a mama.  Since she looks so much like her grandma Szava, I will be she will be spectacular.  Beckah has a story.  About four or five years ago I had a wonderful family approach me and want two puppies from different litters.  I think this maybe was the second and last time I ever did this.  I had Szava and Lewis having babies along with Lily and Augie due within a few days of one another,  they got a girl from Lily and Augie and a boy from Szava and Lewis.  There was nothing not safe about that because no bloodlines were crossed.  About 2 1/2 years ago they told me that the two babies they got with me were going to have babies.  All of my beginning bloodlines were in Beckah and Sullivan.  That is just amazing to me, Sullivan is now living with our youngest son and his family in Noblesville, Ind. And Beckah is due with babies around July 15th.  Toby will also be the father of these babies.

AKC #SS37227701 DNA PROFILE #V10034576  DOB: 2/5/2022

Our magical, magnificent Mila’.    Mila’ is a blend of lightning in a bottle and snugglers extraordinaire.  She is still very young and wants to do and find everything yesterday.  She also is the perfect golden that just wants to have her head in your lap or on your shoulder and stay there.   I don’t let my girls have babies until they are two.  I love it when they are so curious because you know how smart they are.  She learns very quickly and of course is a mama’s girl.  Mila’ is also from Hungary from my friend Beata’.   Mila’ is a perfect continuation of the beauty, temperament and health of all of my fur babies from Hungary.

“Whimsical, Wispy Willow”  (Willow)  Willowcross Fantasy on Fire and Ice

Willow is as close to “lightning in a bottle” as any Golden that has ever owned us.
She is one of our very own girls, daughter of our handsome and oh so very debonair “Augustine of Bella Gold” (Augie) and her gorgeous mama “Wisteria’s Promise of Hope”. Willow hails from a long line of Champions on both sides.

Willows by their very definition are graceful, flexible, strong and beautiful. They tend to grow by the water. That pretty much describes our Willow. She is a sweet, sensitive, easy going and affectionate girl. As you can see, we sort of have our hands full getting a picture that we get both her head and her tail in at the same time.

Our Willow has a very bright and promising future at Willowcross. We are looking forward to watching her mature into a beautiful golden girl.
