Alnclair Golden Retrievers

Australian Champion Alnclair Gillys Hero

Gilly above aged 10 years old leading the way in the Veterans' Parade at the 9th National Golden Retriever Show in Victoria.

 

Gilly is SO "full of beans", we think he has batteries in him!  Luckily he loves the show ring, performs like a real trouper, and has had some very lovely wins at GRC champ shows.

 
Gilly won Intermediate in show and the  Reserve Dog CC at the NSW GRC Champ show in September 2007.  This was the 2nd year in a row he won the RDCC at this prestigious show (still not aged 3), - both times under well-respected international breed specialist judges.  In fact Gilly has won a specialty RDCC four times in different states and across nearly 8 years of shows.
 
PS Don't tell any of my other dogs, but Gilly is my all-time favourite boy!
