Zoey was the 1st puppy in Panda's second litter. We had five girls to choose
from, but we eventually settled on the "White" (baby collar color) puppy. She is bold, confident, a little bit sassy,
very sweet and people-oriented, and a little bit eccentric like her Grandma Penny. In fall 2017 she won two Puppy Stakes
at our retriever club trials and AKC Hunt test, and she is now working on her Senior Hunter title. We hope to finish Senior in Spring
2019 and move on to Master by the fall. If all goes well and she passes her clearances, she will be our next in line to carry on the Fern Hill
tradition of talented and good-looking working goldens.

6-8 more weeks of very carefully controlled exercise. Luckily, it healed perfectly without any setbacks
and she is fully sound.
