July 5, 2007 Striker finished his American Champion title in West Springfield, MA handled by Pam Desrosiers!! We are so proud of Striker and thank Julie MacKinnon & Kathy Sneider, VMD for breeding such a fantastic dog. A special thank you to Jeanette Gould for all the time, TLC, grooming, long distance travelling and connections she’s made for us in handling Striker and making the arrangements to use Pam & Mark Desrosier to finish up his points!! Striker had a real steak dinner on a silver platter! Bone Appetit! We’re anxiously awaiting his New Champion photo…
Striker comes from a long line of gorgeous Nautilus Champions. His parents are Am CH Nautilus Purple Passion, “Casanova” and Nautilus New Year’s Toast, “Margarita.” Striker is very light blonde and has a long, lush fur coat to sink your fingers into. One of his grandmothers is English, so he’s shorter in statute but within the AKC standard. He is our little poster boy pup with the sweetest disposition. His whole body wags with enthusiasm as he greets us, usually with our socks or slippers or whatever else he can cram into his mouth! He lets the girls run for the ball; then he takes it out of their mouth to give to us…as if he did all the work!
We call Striker the toothfairy because his favorite thing to do is wake up my kids in the morning with a flying leap on the bed, nose under all the pillows flipping them up as if searching for that dollar bill. Then of course, it’s the full body rubs, belly rubs, ear rubs and hit the snooze alarm for just 10 more minutes… He’s our little piece of heaven.
Be sure to look for Striker in the Danbury Mint Collectibles in 2007. He was selected to be one of the Golden Retriever models for their collectible plates and ornaments at the Boston show in December.
