Alnclair Golden Retrievers

Welcome to our lovely new family member Em (or Emmy) who came to us in December 2009.  We send thanks to our friend Liz Molnar - rest assured that Emmy is loved and spoiled as much as all her other Alnclair Golden mates.

          Ch and Neuter Ch Dobro Diamond Magic   

5 January 2005 to 1 December 2018 

Sadly our beautiful girl left us quite suddenly just before her 14th birthday - never a problem, she will be greatly missed by all at Alnclair.     


 2014 - we take Emmy out in the Neuter classes and she easily gains her title as a Neuter Champion as well - winning multiple Best Neuter In Group wins, including a Best Neuter in Show under a Golden Retriever Breed Specialist. Ems will now relax on the lounges full time - good girl sweetheart.

Critique - Mr R Edwards - "Lovehayne" - UK

     "Displayed the all important and essential balance and symmetry combined with a straight front and a level topline. Ribs well sprung with good heart and lung room. Well proportioned hindquarters with strong muscular condition and another one with a hard second thigh muscle, all these positive aspects of this quality bitch topped off with a sweet head and dark kind eye. No doubts as I awarded her the Challenge Certificate.

                                                                                   Wished she was mine!  Best in Show."




The NSW Golden Retriever  Championship Show  - Sunday 4th September 2005

Judge Mrs A Hagger "Fairfield" UK

 First Place Minor Puppy Bitch and Minor Puppy In Show ,

Winner of the Summertime Cup " Puppy of the Day"





Critique "I really fell for this lovely puppy. She had an elegant outline and oozed femininity, nicely shaped gentle head of good proportions and a lovely expression. Excellent reach of neck into correct shoulder and upper arm angulation,  straight front, complimentary rear angulation and a strong top line. Well shaped feet and good bone. Quite mature for her age but not finished. Moved really well. When she is older I am sure she will trouble the very best."

And she did!!


20th June 2008 - Australian National in Adelaide, South Australia

 Judge - Mrs M Sillence 'Canina' UK

Second Place Open Bitch Class

(from an entry of 33 bitches)

Critique  - 'Another lovely bitch, very well angulated front and rear. 

Deep short coupled body, moved very well in lovely coat and condition.'
