Alnclair Golden Retrievers

Australian Champion Alnclair Anzac Edward


Eddie is a "sooky" boy who also entertains his human family with his own little "party tricks".  He spent most of his life with our dear friends Deb and Greg and spent 6 months travelling around Australia with them.  We were lucky to be able to still show him occasionally and we all mourn his passing in 2021 at the age of 14.

" Eddie"

Date of Birth: 25 April 2007 - 11 May 2021

Eddie gets his last points for his title with BOB, intermediate of group and a run for "Best in Gundog Group".  Thanks to all the judges who have appreciated and rewarded his virtues.  We are proud of Eddie's championship title, but most special to us is the fact that he was placed in the top 3 at the first five Golden Retriever breed specialty shows he attended -  this included the 7th Golden Retriever National.    These specialty wins were all won before the age of 18 months.

7 September 2008 - Mr Richard Edwards (Lovehayne Kennels - UK)

"Movement, movement, movement.  As soon as this class came into the ring this is what grabbed me.  A lovely head with good pigment, flowing from the neck into a very level topline.  Good coat.  A very active boy who made  his handler keep up with him."

"Lovely quality masculine puppy who was a little unsettled on the day but looks very promising. Plenty of bone and nice cream coat. Gentle masculine head with good pigment. Well angulated for his age and moved soundly."
