Chelsea is our “life of the party”. She is the product of longtime breeder, Julie MacKinnon of Nautilus Golden Retrievers. Chelsea came to us ready to rule the world. Immediately, she made us laugh with her energy and antics. Wasting no time, Chelsea started her career in conformation. She was a natural, but with her lineage it was no surprise. At six months, and her first time out, Chelsea won a 5-point major reserve. She continued, with maturity, to win several points, including a Best Of Opposite. In the 2008 Golden Retriever National, Chelsea was honored with earning her Certificate of Conformation Assessment.
After conformation, we discovered the field. That is when we realized we had Golden “Retrievers”, not just Goldens. By 2 1/2years of age, Chelsea earned her Junior Hunter (JH) title and by 3 ½ years she had earned her Senior Hunter (SH). Chelsea has also earned her Working Certificate (WC) and after a short break to become a mommy, she will return to earn her Working Certificate Excellence (WCX) and enjoy many more years of pheasant shoots and fieldwork.
There is not a day that goes by that Chelsea doesn’t make us smile. Take a look below and she will
capture your heart as well.
