In loving memory of CH Sonyc's Allegro Appassionato CD WC VC OS "Tweet" 1995-2007 (pictured below). Tweet was our special boy, our foundation sire, and is waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge. He took his first breath in our hands and his last breath in our arms.

We miss you, Tweeters, but your quality lives on in your kids and grandkids....

In limited breeding Tweet achieved the GRCA Outstanding Sire award by producing offspring who have achieved in every area of Golden Retriever Competition: UKC & AKC Championships (including BOB winning & Group placing), and titles in Obedience, Tracking, Agility, Rally, Working Certificate, and Hunting tests. He has already produced SEVEN OFA Excellent offspring. He is the sire of multiple champions in conformation, obedience and agility!

New champion!! CH Gaelicgold Sonyc Finian (Finian, born 6/07, pictured below) is a Tweet son who finished his championship in 2010! He has received his first major at a Specialty going BOW and has a BOB from the classes under his belt.

Presto's daughter, Sonyc's English Lavender (Yardley, pictured below) is a smashing girl. She has 4 Championship points. Her sister, Sonyc Absolut Gift of Gab (Schmooze) has achieved her first agility titles!

Champion Mariner Sonyc Crossroads "Lizzie" (pictured below, CH Brae Lea King of the Road x Malagold Mariner Hurricane). We will miss our special girl, Lizzie, winner of international specialty shows and a sweet, gentle soul. Go gently, dear one, and wait for us at the Rainbow Bridge. We love you and miss you.

Sonyc Goldens are based on outstanding show dog and working dog producers and top-winning show and working dogs, including CH Libra Lady Carioca CD, CH Libra Malagold Coriander, Butterblac Solar Halo, Valentine Torch of Topbrass WC, CH Beckwith's Malagold Flash UDT WC, CH Malagold Storm Warning.

We support responsible dog ownership and breeding. If you purchase a Golden Retriever from a responsible breeder, you should be provided with evidence that both the parents of the dog are healthy: Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals Certification of Normal Hips (Excellent, Good or Fair); CERF certification of normal eye exam by veterinary ophthalmologist; Certification of normal heart exam by veterinary cardiologist; Certification of normal thyroid test; and assurances that parents are free of seizures, severe allergies, and other health problems common in Golden Retrievers. If you'd like a family pet, a good option is to adopt a Golden Retriever from your local Golden Retriever Rescue organization. Check out the GRCA web site.
