My boy Cruz has a wonderful disposition. It is no wonder, since
he inherited it from his both parents.
Lana, his mom, is such a sweet girl. She gets along well with all dogs, and it
goes without saying how much she loves people. She has her CCA which is a
Conformation assessment title awarded by the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA)
to dogs whose structure and temperament are shown to be in line with the standards of the
breed. She has such a loving, nurturing, temperament that when one of my other females, Breeze
was having trouble nursing her pups, because she had a poor milk supply, Lana stepped right in,
accepted the puppies, and took over nursing them as long as we needed her to.
Wyatt, Cruz's dad,is a very handsome male, and has earned the Grand Championship Conformation title already,
and is actually only a few points from earning his Bronze Championship. Wyatt was also the sire to my male Champion
Rango. Cruz, is almost finished earning his own Championship title. He also has received the CCA Award from the
I took Cruz to the Westminster MEET THE BREEDS event and he loved it. All he wanted to do is to meet and greet the
people and especially the children. It was a long day for him, but he did not want to go into his crate to rest. He just
wanted to socialize with all the people visiting. He really “worked” the crowd by going around from person to person to
make sure he got to say hello to everyone. At one point, there was a handicapped child that he wanted to be with, but
when the boy left to go into the other room, Cruz wanted to follow after him.
Cruz, like his Sire and Dam, is also great at getting along with other dogs. He even loves to play with the puppies when I
have a litter.
I recently received a wonderful complement about Cruz, from a club member, who actually shows in a different venue,
which was very nice to receive. He is an all-around excellent specimen of the Golden Retriever breed.
I am so very proud of him.
