UKC/AKC CH. Malagold's Rain Storm
(BIS BISS Am. Can. CH. Malagold Storm Warning, OS, SDHF
x BISS CH. Malagold's Everlasting Love)
Rain is the spitting image of her lovely mother, Sweetie, in both looks and temperament. She was born September 9, 2009, and just spent her puppy time enjoying her life and her pals, and doing her own thing. But when she grew up into all the potential that she had shown as a little one, she stepped out into that show ring and has not looked back!
Coming from a background of overachievers, this is what Rain was born to do!
Stormy was a force to be reckoned with from his very first steps into the show ring. He completed his Championship at the tender age of fourteen months by going Winners Dog at the 1992 Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty and we knew that it was the start of something big!
This multiple specialty winning boy went on to accumulate numerous Best in Show wins with Geri Gerstner Hart expertly guiding his way. What a team they made! Additional wins including the coveted award of Show Dog of the Year at the Golden Retriever Review Top 20 competition in 1996.
With Awards of Merit in 1995 and 1996, and the award for Best of Opposite Sex in 1997, the highlight at Malagold was the Best of Breed win for Stormy at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 1998, with Geri and Stormy making the cut for the final five in the Sporting Group at Madison Square Garden. What an awesome experience for them both!
Stormy continued his winning ways through his veteran years, with a final award of Best Veteran at the 1999 Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty, with the additional honor of a Judges Award of Merit being bestowed upon this stunning show dog.
Using frozen semen for the breeding with Sweetie, many years after the passing of Stormy, Rain truly combines the beauty and elegance of Sweetie with the powerful athleticism that Stormy exuded. This is a formidable pedigree - the thunder and lightening that brings the past to the present, with the promise of an amazing future!
This is Rain!
