Fall 2019 Puppies: Topper X Tess
Temperament, Health, Workability - Multipurpose Performance Puppies
Wynwood's Over The Top ** (Topper)
I had the pleasure of field training with Topper and his respected breeder, Renee Shulte in April of 2019 in Alabama. I loved this boy's easy going and happy temperament and his love of the game. It was also great to watch how well he interacted with other dogs, and his constantly waggy tail no matter who he was with or what he was doing. Topper's structure is solid, well angulated with good bone and a lovely head and expression with great pigment.
Topper has proven to be, from an early age, a real talent in the field. Only three years old, he is on the derby list in the States and is currently competing in American Master Hunt tests. He did exceptional work in his first three tests to pass and will no doubt attain his Master title by the end of the summer. Here is what Renee, his breeder and owner says about Topper:
It was not my intention to keep a puppy from Topper’s litter but at seven weeks of age, he showed me a temperament, body style and structure that I could not pass up. He was the ‘stand out, eye catching’ pup in his litter.
Topper was very people oriented, following and interested in me from the start. Rough and tumble play between him and me was a game he enjoyed and he always came back for more attention. A confident puppy and avid retriever, he would not let his litter mates take the pigeon he had and would out run and manoeuvre them to keep possession of it.
Topper continued to show great ability in the field and at seven months of age went south with Pro Trainer, Mike Ough for eight months. Topper was trained to run field trial Derby Stakes and competed successfully. Earning two fourth placements, a Reserve Jam and a Jam in large competitive Derby competitions, earning him a place on the Golden Retriever Derby list.
Topper spent three months, when he was 2 ½ years old, with noted Pro Trainer, Andy Attar. Andy expressed that Topper had the best temperament of any Golden he had ever had in his kennel, always ready to do his work with effort and style. Topper also always got along wonderfully with ALL dogs when in a group in the airing yard.
Now three years old, Topper is working towards his Master Hunter title and is competing in field trial Qualifying Stakes. At his first three 2019 Master Hunt Tests he qualified in all and will complete his MH title in Spring/Summer 2019.
He is a joy to live with, train and own. An enthusiastic handsome three year old with an impeccable temperament.

Morningstar Baroness O'Lynwood Can CDX SH WCX *** (TESS)
Tess came from a breeding done by respected breeder Ginnie Pastor of Morningstar Goldens in New York between my Baron (Can CH NMH2 GMH GMOTCH Sterre Texas Tycoon at Lynwood AM MH CCA ** / Can WCX *** VCX) and her lovely Buoy (Morningstar Water Marker DS TKN WCX CCA). Combining successful lines in several disciplines, Tess has inherited the structure, brains, biddability and superior water performance of both her sire and dam.
Already with a Qualifying field trial win plus 3 straight Master passes to date, Tess came away from the June 2019 Erie Shores Dog Shore with a Specialty Winners Bitch BOS win over 42 bitches for 5 points plus a second Winners Bitch win for an additional 5 points. WOW. We are thrilled!!
Trained and handled by me in field and obedience, she is living up to the high standard set by Baron. Her dam Buoy, herself the product of a pedigree that offers strong water courage and honesty, is expected to finish her American Senior Hunter and move on with her Master training this summer.
Tess won first place in a Canadian Qualifying field trial against 16 other dogs last summer at just two years old. I hope to finish up her Can QFTR title in 2019. She also passed her WCX plus all her hunt tests consecutively through Junior and Senior and three straight Master passes with flying colours. We will complete Master this summer. She also has her CDX Open obedience title and we will return to the obedience ring in the fall to work towards Utility.
Not only is Tess lovely and talented, she is also a great little companion. She has a super on/off switch which allows her to be calm in the house and an energetic worker outside. She is extremely smart and trainable and carries on her pedigree's water strength. She keeps her dad and us on our toes with her engaging, fun little personality. She is a great traveller whenever we go away to train or compete and she fits in easily with other dogs wherever she goes. Baron and she are constant companions and, in typical dad fashion, he lets her get away with anything she pleases.
