Born April 16, 2015

Jake, summer 2016

Jake was the firstborn, a strapping big puppy who from the time he opened his eyes would sit and STARE at things -- very bright, very thoughtful, very active. Very smart boy! We were thrilled that he went home with the Koguts of New York, who were the breeders of our foundation dam Hilfy all those years ago. His name "Legacy" acknowledges the connection back to Joan's old girl Marcy, Hilfy's dam; Meadowbrae is the Kogut's current kennel name. Jake is loving life on the Kogut's upstate farm with his great-aunt Brandi and his cousins Bonnie and Rose. He loves training and has been an amazingly quick and enthusiastic learner. He made his competition debut at the 2015 Golden Retriever National Specialty in Ohio, JAMMing in the Puppy Stakes field event. In 2016, he earned his Junior Hunter title in four straight tests at 15 months old, and had passed three Senior Hunter tests before turning 18 months old. He only needs one more to title; should be out again finishing up in the spring and starting on Master soon afterwards! So far, he has passed all 7 of the tests he has entered, with both Ken and Joan handling.
