We are a small family-based breeder located about 20 miles East of Atlanta, GA. Our purpose for breeding is first and foremost sharing the love and joy of ownership of a happy, healthy, and beautiful golden retriever with a likewise loving family. We have gone to a lot of expense and testing in order to produce a quality litter.
Our history of golden ownership
We have now owned five goldens through our lifetime. Our first Golden was a Golden Retriever, Irish Setter-mix, Pumpkin.She had a profound influence of our family as we had two members actively become involved in helping the Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta and three family members owning rescued Goldens.
Our second Golden Retriever was from a local friend’s litter. Our sons were young and named her Patch. She was a lovely girl and she was an active member of our family.
Our third Golden Retriever, Ginger, a beautiful dark red Golden, came to us from Barnesville, GA. She was the daughter of Josh’s Master Skipper and Mariley’s Fancy Clancy
In May of 2014, we purchased Lilly Sparkling Jewel of the Moonlit Meadow SR82603607, from the dam Sugar Valleys Lilly of the Valley SR72298607 and Sire Bandi, Difiramb Iz Stolitsy Urala SR74053501 of Russia. We brought her home and were in absolute puppy heaven! We were very excited to have purchased a beautiful and health puppy and were eager to include her in all of our activities. We were strongly encouraged to seek out obedience training with our girl early in her puppyhood, which we did. We were also told on the advice of our veterinarian to socialize her into any and all of our activities, which we did!
We enrolled her in Canine Country Academy in Lawrenceville, Ga, where she earned her first certificate as AKC STAR puppy. After that she has taken additional obedience and conformation classes through Conyers Kennel Club and Lawrenceville Kennel Club. She earned her Canine Good Citizen certificate and title through her obedience class here in Conyers and has earned many show titles as well. See my page on achievements for more details and pictures.
We now have a puppy, Gemma Sparkling Sapphire of the Moonlit Meadow, Junior Puppy Champion. She is a first generation puppy from the litter of Lilly Sparkling Jewel of the Moonlit Meadow and Nalimana Magic Volcano “Ivan”.
Why breed our golden girl?
We have been extensively involved with our golden girl in the areas of fun, training, and showing. We have been very concerned with the overall health of our girl since the day we purchased her and have built a caring relationship with our veterinary hospital Rockdale Animal Hospital. All of our experiences have led us to follow best practices in meticulous care for our pets.
Time was spent researching Golden Retriever studies looking for ways to give her the best possible nutrition. We were careful to feed our girl a balanced, salmon-based diet with fish oil for extra vitamins and nutrients throughout her young life. She receives only healthy snacks such as organic carrots, sliced apples, high antioxidant-rich foods such as blueberries, red peppers, filtered water, etc. and treats made with care in the USA.
We have strived to measure her food in order to keep her lean, and to have a healthier, longer life. She gets frequent weight checks to make sure she is kept in-check and at her optimal weight. She is kept clean,
well-groomed, given all required vaccinations, heart worm treatment, insect protection as necessary for her health and well-being. She receives lots of time and attention daily as she DESERVES!
In addition to a healthy diet and good medical care, we have been careful to provide plenty of exercise. Lilly is walked one to two/and one/half miles consistently and also has a nice sized country yard of 4.5 acres on which to roam.
As we explored all of the activities available to owners through membership in United Kennel Club, American Kennel Club, and C.S.I, we have met many outstanding breeders and their beautiful dogs as well. This relationship and the overall favorable critiques Lilly received through the judging process encouraged us to seek out breeding her to an outstanding male.
In addition, Lilly’s health and wellness check-ups through our veterinarian’s officer with report cards of A+ further gave us the information that she was a very healthy representative of her breed. We waited until she was two years of age to complete the necessary heart, eyes, hips, and elbows tests. We completed a DNA test to screen out further health complications that may arise. You can see the results of her tests on her canine data page below. You can also view her pedigree here as well.

We now have Gemma Sparkling Sapphire of the Moonlit Meadow. She is eleven months old and has just begun her show and obedience training. We plan to breed her in the future, after she reaches two years of age and after all testing is complete and favorable. She already has perfectly clean DNA but hips and elbow testing cannot be completed until she is two years of age.
We do not own many dogs and embellish lots of attention on each litter in order to provide early stimulation, proper socialization, and to produce an outstanding, healthy litter. We have the space here at our home for supervised outdoor exploration and exercise for each young litter as well.
We do not have a crowded kennel of dogs but strive to produce a litter of beautiful limited AKC registered Golden Retriever puppies as pets for certain, specially chosen families.
We are seeking select, conscientious, individuals who plan to spend lots of time with their new family member.
Companionship, time, commitment to well-being, health, and social needs are a must!
