About Us:

It all began with a puppy named "Ginger", following and protecting our children on adventures as they grew from children to adults. Ginger was the perfect pet.   Ginger played outfielder for our son, dress-up for our daughters, rancher, gardener, walking companion, best friend, and attentive listener.  She was gentle, kind, protective, and intelligent.  She incited our passion for Golden Retrievers.  After 16 years, she left us.  It didn't take long before we knew that not only did we want another Golden Retriever, but we wanted to breed these beautiful dogs so others can find the same joy we found in Ginger.  Sage joined our family and a little later Barley romped into our lives.  Together, they produce beautiful, intelligent, healthy puppies. Recently, we expanded our facilities, adding two new kennels and a climate-controlled whelping building. Sugar & Maple joined our family of Golden Retrievers in 2016.  Dixie, a daughter of Sage & Barley, is our last addition.  We are a small kennel, breeding for the love of the dog and the desire to place quality dogs in family homes.  We live in Hallettsville, TX on many acres with huge, gorgeous live oaks that our dogs absolutely love.  Our Goldens are companions to our six grandchildren who are thrilled when it is "puppy time" and sad when they go home with their new owners.
