OUR BEAUTIFUL MALIBU’S NEW LITTER OF SEVEN, JUNE 14, 2017.

WELCOME TO ARDORGOLD BRITISH GOLDEN RETRIEVERS. GORGEOUS AKC/FDSB FLAXEN AND CREAM LITTER WHELPED JUNE 14, 2017, SUPERB IMPORTED SIRE AND DAM (SEE BELOW), BOTH WITH  EXCELLENT HIP AND ELBOW RADIOGRAPHS, AND SPECIALIST-CLEARED EYES AND HEARTS.  

HERE IS THE UNPARALLED PEDIGREE OF OUR LITTER. 

Please read on to understand  the true quality of these puppies. These little princesses have regal and correct bearing, stunning English heads– short and broad muzzles with a slightly steep “stop’ and a high occipital ridge.  They have beautiful dark pigment and correct expressive eyes; the ears are slightly forward, set slightly above the eyes. Their lovely necks flow to level toplines and the expressive beginnings of banner tails.  Their coats are creamy and thick.  Their personalities are  just beginning to emerge; we cuddle them and call them to us.  They are eating Nutro Large Breed Ultra free choice, and 2-3 meals a day of rice and “sludge”–the latter is made of their dog food soaked in chicken broth and goat’s milk to which we add cooked chicken liver and several cans of mackerel, excellent for their coats.     They’ll go to their new homes next weekend fresh and fluffy from a bath, with their  bears rubbed with mothers’ scent, to perfect bonding time with your family.

AS SHOW-QUALITY GOLDEN RETRIEVER BREEDERS FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, OUR BABIES HAVE BEEN BRED AND REARED WITH LOVE AND EXPERTISE.  PUPPIES HAVE BEEN HOUSED IN A CLEAN AND ROOMY KENNEL INDOORS OPENING TO A SPACIOUS FENCED YARD, AND AT NINE WEEKS, ARE NEARLY NATURALLY HOUSEBROKEN, LATELY PREFERRING TO RUN OUTSIDE AFTER A NAP THAN USE THEIR PUPPY BOXES OR ANYWHERE NEAR THEIR BEDS AND FOOD. THEY HAVE HAD TWO SETS OF SHOTS, TWO WORMINGS,  AND BEEN GIVEN FULL EXAMS AT SEVEN WEEKS BY OUR HIGHLY REGARDED REPRO VET DR GREG BURNS. 

NOW THAT THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF EC BREEDERS THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA VIGOROUSLY IMPORTING THE WORLD’S TOP BREEDING STOCK, WE         BELIEVE THAT PAYING $3K FOR AN “ENGLISH CREAM” GOLDEN RETRIEVER  IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY NO MATTER HOW GLITTERING THE PEDIGREE.  

SOLD LITTERMATES, MID AUGUST 2017

OUR PUPPIES ARE HEADS ABOVE THE REST IN QUALITY BECAUSE WE HAVE ONLY THREE ADULT GOLDENS AND TWO KEEPERS FROM THIS LITTER.  AS FOR PEDIGREE, OUR PUPPIES ARE THE PROGENY OF OUR IMPORTED SON OF MULTI CH ASHBURY ANGEL HEART, ONE OF THE TOP FIVE SIRES OF EUROPE, AND OUR IMPORTED DAUGHTER OF MULTI CH MAJIK INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU, FROM THE MOST EXCLUSIVE KENNEL IN FINLAND,WITH MANY GENERATIONS OF HIP AND EYE CLEAR CHAMPIONS INCLUDING THE 2015 WORLD CHAMPION GOLDEN RETRIEVER WW CH TRAMIN ARNI JOY.  IF YOU MISSED IT,  CLICK HERE TO VIEW LITTER PEDIGREE.  

MANY BREEDERS WOULD CHARGE OVER $3,000 FOR PUPS OF THIS QUALITY.  

WE CONGRATULATE OUR WONDERFUL FAMILIES: THE MARTIN’S, FOR THEIR PURCHASE OF OUR GORGEOUS MALE PUPPY, ARDORGOLD “GUZZLER”, THE ONLY BOY IN OUR LITTER.  

WE ALSO THANK THE RICHIE FAMILY OF ENGLEWOOD FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE MAGNIFICENT PUPPY BITCH ARDORGOLD “SAVANNAH,” AS A WEDDING PRESENT FOR THEIR DAUGHTER.    

WE  THANK OUR NEW ATTORNEY FRIENDS WHO MOVED ESPECIALLY TO BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN DENVER TO THEN FIND THE BRITISH CREAM-COATED PUPPY OF THEIR DREAMS, AND PICKED OURS.

WE ESPECIALLY THANK THE WONDERFUL, BEREAVED PARENTS OF A FOUR YEAR OLD AUTISTIC SON WHOSE CLOSEST COMPANION, A LOVING, DEVOTED FEMALE MASTIFF, GOT OUT OF THEIR YARD AND SUCCUMBED TO THE INEVITABLE.  THEY CHOSE ONE OF OUR GIRL PUPPIES OF THIS LITTER TO SURPRISE THEIR GRIEVING CHILD.

Again, we appreciate your interest in our forthcoming litter and will place you on our list in the order of expressed interest for either sex, up to a total of four per sex.  This is Malibu’s first litter– we want to be sure we have babies up and running.  Naturally we will post puppy photos.  Do e-mail us with your questions– thanks for stopping by!

About Ardorgold

 My husband and I are retired teachers and writers, with a long history as fanciers and family-oriented breeders of show-quality AKC Golden Retrievers. We first called ourselves Gilded Peak Golden Retrievers– see relevant page.  Several years ago, we became entranced with the British in type Golden Retriever, which is often cream-coated in Europe and still rare in the US, despite the many breeders of these glorious dogs there are now throughout North America.  You may know these dogs to be characterized as “English Creams.”   This is descriptive terminology for only one type of the Golden Retriever breed, founded in Scotland during the Edwardian era by one Lord Tweedmouth at his estate “Guisachen”. Please also see the fascinating story of English-Background Goldens in North America.  

Here is our knock-out imported male Angelo aka Angels Dance in Beauly Highland, sired by Int’l CH Ashbury Angel Heart.  bred and titled by Cathy Sontag of Ashbury Kennels, France, out of Multi CH Lislone Garbank Loch Affric,  bred by Mr. and Mrs. James Crosbie, renowned fanciers of Ireland,   whose UK breed type and wonderful biddable temperament, together with one of the top five pedigrees in the lower forty-eight, make him exemplary.

Pictured below is our beautiful brood bitch, the stunning Amore Veritas Malibu.  Her magnificent sire Int’l CH Majik Inspector Clouseau is a champion in ten countries.  Her exquisite dam, CH Amore Veritas Antalia, is a daughter of Multi CH Thevenet Pep’s Team, a CH Remington Ringmaster son.  Malibu is an absolutely splendid, “doggy” bitch; she has excellent conformation and is loving and biddable.  See Malibu’s pedigree on k9data here.  See Malibu’s page for more photos and discussion.

We thus have to date one spectacular breeding pair of cream-coated English Goldens, and one young female by our Irish Import Angelo out of a beautiful American-bred 3/4 English Golden, from our original bloodlines.  

Our three English Cream Golden Retrievers live with us in the house and have spacious runs out each door of our home outside Fort Collins, Colorado.  They are members of our family, nurtured, trained, groomed and  generally adored by us twenty-four seven.  We recommend that in the event you do not buy one of our puppies, you research Colorado breeders and look for those who seem knowledgeable about genetic issues and their own bloodlines.  We feel strongly that those with more than four females and two stud dogs are profit oriented more than focused on the stewardship of this wonderful breed.

We feed our dogs a blend of Wellness Puppy (for pregnant bitches) and Nature’s Recipe, both highly rated in Dog Food Advisor.  We mix in stewed livers, mackerel, beef, and the highly rated supplement NUPRO. After learning that a high profile Scottish litter has nutrition based cataracts and that the dam and puppies have been fed the highly touted Taste of the Wild grain free food, we turned to custom feeding with the aforementioned. Please note: grain-free foods should not be fed to bitches in whelp or to weaning puppies–they lack the essential amino acid argenine.

Not only is Angelo the son of CH Ashbury Angel Heart, bred and handled by Cathy Sontag, Ashbury, France, he is the grandson of one of the most spectacular dogs in the world, a dog who won the World Championship in Milan last year, Multi CH Arni Joy.

Angelo’s beautiful mother CH Lislone Garbank Loch Affric, Lislone-Garbank being one of the top five UK breeders, was bred to Joy and the rest is history.

Angelo is not a huge Golden; he is slow maturing, like his grandsire.  But he is hands down the most exquisite Golden I have ever seen and there is no doubt in my mind that he will set the world on fire once he hits the showring.

The dam of Angelo’s first litter is also a precious jewel; she is the product of my Gold-Rush and Meadowpond bloodlines outcrossed to Scandinavian and European bloodlines.  What a spectacular bitch, and what sweet music these two have made together;
