Zany - awarded Winner's Bitch at the Shenandoah Valley Kennel Club Dog Show.jpg

I'm a Winner - Shenandoah Valley  Kennel Club Dog Show - June 2021

     Zany is the ideal golden retriever.  She's spunky and hilarious, all while having the sweetest and most gentle spirit. She loves playing fetch and will greet anyone she meets with a gift - either a favorite toy, a leaf, or whatever she can quickly find. 


     She's tried her paw at coursing, rally, barn hunt, scent work and a host of other activities.  But her favorite is being a therapy dog.  She goes to elementary schools and libraries to help children practice reading and is always a big hit.  Recently, she visited some nursing homes to bring smiles to senior citizens.  She is a natural nurturer, content to snuggle with anyone. 


     Zany is beautiful to watch trot around the show ring, moving with elegance and purpose.  She comes from a long line of excellence and I am so blessed to be her human.
