Welcome to our site –  this will be updated regularly with news and photos of our beautiful dogs both at home and at shows……enjoy!!

We bought our first Golden Retriever – Amber – in 1982 – followed by our first “show” golden from Erika Ward – Fernavy Dulcinea at Ambersun.  We mated Amber to Ch Okus Bucaneer which produced our first “Ambersun” litter from which we kept “Amber’s Son Sunny Boy” – he won 1 CC and 2 Res CC and achieved his Show Gundog Working Certificate with help and guidance from Dave Barnes.  We went on to produce a Champion, Res CC winners, Stud Book Number Winners, Junior Warrant Winners, Best Puppy Winners at Champ and Open Shows and two achieved their Show Gundog Working Certificates.  In 2001 due to family commitments we took a break from the show world and sadly lost the last of our line in winter 2014.  The house was very empty so in summer 2015 we brought home our new puppy.  Please go to the bottom of the page and work upwards to follow our journey…
