TRACKING CHAMPION WINTERSET DEVONN T.S.D.X.

DEVONN left us for Rainbow Bridge on the 18th March 2015. Devonn was my first Golden, I waited so long to find the right Golden to join our family and she was everything I ever hoped for, We also were blessed to be able to have her brother from the same litter, Rory, come to live with us as well. Well that was double trouble but what a wonderful life we all shared together, so many adventures, laughs and tears. We will be forever grateful to Helen Pownall from Winterset for breeding our beautiful girl and allowing her and Rory to share their lives with us.............................
Devonn retired after gaining her TSDX title as she had attained all she could at the time in tracking and Track & Search. She lived out the rest of her life with the rest of our Golden family overseeing the raising of two more litters before she took her wings and made her way to Rainbow Bridge. She passed away in my arms on the 18th March 2015 just three weeks short of her sixteenth birthday. Now with her beloved brother Rory..............missing you so much.
12th October 2011 - Devonn passed her TSD test 6 with a grading of GOOD to gain her TRACK AND SEARCH DOG EXCELLENT TITLE!! Well done old girl you have been a delight since the day we brought you home and continue to be such a part of us all at Morningmyst!!!

TRACKING CHAMPION April Showers
April - 19.5.1992 - 1.6.2008
We said goodbye to our darling April aged sixteen years and two weeks on the 1st June 2008.
She went to bed and never woke up the next morning.
We miss her terribly and are blessed to have had her share her live with us for all those wonderful years.
Run free baby, be young and strong, we will meet again one day.......................
April is our sixteen year old Cocker Spaniel, she came to us at the age of eighteen months.
A little cocker that needed a home.
She walked into our home and into our hearts. April is adored by all our Goldens.
With Lynn's passion for tracking it was inevitable that at some stage April would begin tracking .
April gained the ultimate tracking title of Tracking Champion in just two seasons.
She truly is our little Champion.
