I thought I had better update her blurb as now that she is nearly 3 she has does not behave quite as monsterous as she used to! Although she still does like to chew the odd TV remote. Mimi has turned into an incredibly loyal and affectionate girl, along with her Mum Freya and Auntie Hope she lives full time with me at my place. She stayed during her 1st season and has just never went back home to my Mum's, in those three weeks she bonded with me and like it or not I have been stuck with her ever since.

Mimi very much loves water and just cannot resist a quick dip even if I do not want her to and Auntie Hope's obsession with tennis balls has rubbed off on to her and chasing after one she resembles a Whippet not a Golden. I have been delighted with her show career so far and her latest award of the RCC from Mrs Ann Hagger at NGRA in October has made me sooooo proud. In November Mimi went one better with winning her first CC at Berkshire Downs and Chilterns GRC from Mrs Barbara Gell. Wow just 6 days later Mimi won her 2nd CC on home territory at Gundog Breeds Association of Scotland under Mrs Briony Athey. She the promptly dropped all her coat and had to stay at home over the winter. She returned to the ring in March and on the 19th March at the Joint Clubs Ch Show hosted by Eastern Counties GRC under judge Mrs Hilary Lambshead she gained that magical 3rd CC to make her now Show Champion Mimi the Monster! It was an extra special day for us as breeders as not only did Mimi win in the bitches but her litter brother Oscar won the dog CC! The day finished with Mimi Best in Show and Oscar Reserve Best in Show and Best Opposite Sex.

In December 2011 I was proud that Mimi could show that she has brains as well as beauty. She went to Ampton, Suffolk and successfully passed her Show Gundog Working Certificate doing it on style after being sent on a runner before the drive was over, she then did her usual dive in the pond despite the snowy conditions. 900 miles in 1 day but worth it :) She has been a wee natural and thoroughly enjoys her picking up days and we plan on carrying on with her.

2012 was a quiet year for Mimi as unfortunately she produced a stillborn singleton puppy, she spent the majority of the year growing back her coat and therefore she did not manage to get to many shows, she returned to the ring in October and managed to get to 4 shows before the year was out. Out of those 4 shows she won 2 CC's!

Mimi has proved herself as a first class show dog, a competent working dog and in 2013 she became a Mum for the first time to four lovely puppies. We have kept a dog and a bitch from her and they look very promising.

The 2012 shooting season has been the highlight of Mimi's year this little girl just lights up when she arrives at her shoot.

My wee Champion :) She worked hard this day and retrieved about 15 birds by the time the day was over.

She moved with good head & tail carriage, showing purpose & drive, yet maintaining the elegance I look for in a Golden bitch. I thought she was stunning & was very pleased to award her Best Bitch & also BOB" Carron French (Caffimbra)
