Big Announcement #2: The Resident Golden Retriever

Top 40 APBTs (that is to say, my tiny little "kennel") is going to be adding a Golden Retriever to our family in about 8 weeks. This is a completely different breed than our beloved terriers, but it's a move that I'm excited about.

A very good friend of mine breeds and shows Golden Retrievers, and while they were never "my breed", I've learned to love them and admire them. The litter was born on January 6th, and we're happy to report that 8 healthy puppies have been born - 5 girls and 3 boys.

We will be adding a little girl to the home - GSR Top40s Keep 'Em Talkin' - who will go by the call name of "Rumor".

Naturally, we have a lot of goals in mind for this little girl. Golden Sunrise Retrievers is the home of the first Golden Retriever to earn a UWP, the first title in the sport of weight pulling. Golden's aren't known for their pulling abilities! Of course, the high hopes for Rumor are to earn a Super Dog title, and of course, this requires us to earn a UWP.

In the meantime, if you're wanting puppy pictures, keep watching us! We'll be posting a lot in the next 8 weeks as we watch this litter grow!


  1. So excited for you and little Rumor! I'm really looking forward to puppy pictures. :) I'm sure Jax will be a great big brother.

    I have to note the symmetry... Zenzi was born August 6th -- our puppies are exactly 5 months apart. ;)

    1. Oh, that's so cool! I hope to have her in CA with me when we come in November. PLAY DATE!!
