Panda at the East Tennessee Hunt Test May 25, 2014
Panda was the 1st puppy in Penny's final litter, born on Penny's own 6th birthday. She
was the puppy known initially as "Pink" because of her baby collar color. From the first, she was a big and very vigorous
puppy. She strongly favors Hilfy, her maternal granddam, with her lovely face and sturdy build. Panda is a delightful companion with a sprightly, cheerful
and loving personality -- she's up for anything! She has lots of talent and is ultra stylish in the field. Her trainer Jody Ware
says she loves to train, works well, and is especially good in the water -- he now owns one of the puppies from her first litter, Fern Hill RSR's Golden Boy SH ("Willie"),
who is being trained and competed by Jody's 13-year old son Nick. Panda completed
her Master Hunter title on May 18, 2014, shortly before her 3rd birthday, and earned her WCX on October 26, 2014. We are very proud of her accomplishments! When she
is home, we are working her some in obedience and she shows a lot of potential for that field as well. She passed all her clearances and
had three litters totalling 25 beautiful and talented puppies, in 2015, 2016, and 2018 by outstanding field sires.
We have retained two of her daughters for our future competition and breeding program -- Zoey and our new puppy PyPy.
Panda earned her Outstanding Dam title from GRCA on November 10, 2018.
Panda is now retired from motherhood duties and we hope to get her back out in competition later this year.

WCX: Panda earned her WCX (Working Certificate Excellent) title at the Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty in Bristol,
TN on October 26, 2014.
Master Hunter: Panda earned her Master Hunter title May 18, 2014, finishing with qualifying runs at the Middle Tennessee double master spring test
in Lavergne, TN. She was still two years old at the time she titled. We get many, many compliments from pros and other exhibitors about her style, drive and speed, and
her pro trainer took one of the puppies from her first litter.

Senior Hunter: Panda earned her Senior Hunter title May 26, 2013, just a few days shy of her 2nd birthday. Since we didn't take her out for
Junior, she needed 5 legs to title. She accomplished this in 3 consecutive weekends, at the MidSouth, Middle Tennessee, and East Tennessee Hunt Tests, with
Jody Ware handling. Panda has lots of drive and style and loves every minute of the work!
Litter 9: Panda was bred to AFC HRCH Topbrass Hawks Red Wing MH CCA, ("Red")
for her third and final litter born 1/24/18 (8 girls and 1 boy). Her first litter with Red was so outstanding that we decided to repeat the breeding and keep a girl
puppy,Py, so that we will have two half-sisters to carry on in the future. The litter pedigree is here and the litter
page is here (Py is the Pink puppy in the pictures).
Litter 8: Panda was bred to AFC The Sunday Swimmer, ("Wyatt") for her second litter.
Wyatt is a handsome Field Trial dog who has qualified for and competed through the 5th series at the all-breed National Amateur Field Trial for both 2014 and 2015.
She whelped 10 puppies (5 girls, 5 boys) on December 6, 2016. We have kept a girl from this litter -- Fern Hill Sunday at the Zoo, aka Zoey
and couldn't be more excited. The puppies have gone to wonderful new homes, and several of them will have a chance at top level competition
in field and obedience. The litter pedigree is here and the litter page is here.
Litter 7: Panda was bred to AFC HRCH Topbrass Hawks Red Wing MH CCA,
for her first litter of 6 puppies (4 boys, 2 girls) on April 16, 2015. The litter pedigree is here.
The puppies went to wonderful homes, and all are showing loads of talent, wonderful dispositions and trainability, and handsome 'old gold' looks. The litter
page is here.
