A Huge Loss For The Malagold Family

Malagold's Lucky In Love
August 14, 2000 - March 7, 2016

Connie and the Malagold Family mourn the loss of Lovey, the Malagold Family Matriarch. Lovey was just shy of 16 years of age, but no one would have every guessed that correctly. She continued to take long walks in the woods every day and she pretended to chase the squirrels in the yard although it was just for show as she prefered to just lay in the sun - in both the green of the spring and the snow of the winter, always loving the outdoors!

Lovey prefered the comfort of her favorite doggie bed to being a show dog, but that did not stop her kids and grandkids from continuing the winning tradition at Malagold, with many earning their conformation Championships, and continuing on to earn additional titles in obedience, rally and agility.

Lovey will always represent the heart of Malagold...we miss her...


Welcome to the Malagold Family, Jack!

Pystol and the Malagold Family welcome Jack Carson Tripp, born on March 11th to Scott and Melissa Tripp. Watch for Melissa and Jack to be hitting the dog shows together come summer. And not long after that we expect Jack to be leading the Goldens through the weave poles and over the a-frame in agility! We look forward to a wonderful future for Jack!
