Buzz - The Busiest Honeybee!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Beauty, brains, ability, heart, desire and a very determined owner. All this can be found in Buzz! This Stormy son, born September 21, 1994, has really defined the phrase "been there, done that"! There is very little that Buzz has tried and not accomplished - not as far as we can tell.

Buzz is outgoing and enthusiastic in all his endeavors, be it the show ring, in the field, on an agility course, or out for a romp in the woods. He is truly what a Golden Retriever should be!

Buzz's outstanding feature is his temperament; sweet and loving, but he also has a strong work ethic combined with high trainability and desire to please. Read on...

Talented in the field, he has a strong drive to retrieve, a good nose, is an excellent marker with good natural memory, and loves to swim at any time of the year. He started his field career with a 1st place at the Potomac Valley GRC's Puppy Stakes at the age of 6 months. He completed his Junior Hunter title in four straight tests and his Working Certificate on his first try, before his second birthday.

Buzz earned a WCX at the 2000 Eastern Regional, and started an electric collar program early in 2001. He completed his Senior Hunter title with an extra leg in two short months of competition in the fall of 2001, and spends the winter hunting duck and geese. He is currently competing for his Master Hunter title (recently got his first leg) and running in Qualifying stakes in licensed field trials

A dog with all-around talents, he was the first recipient of the Chesapeake Golden Retriever Club's versatility trophy in 1996. Shown only sparingly in the Bred-By-Exhibitor class, he won the first point towards his championship in May 1997 at the Union County Kennel Club show, again from the Bred-By class. He was then shown to his championship in 1998, finishing in a few short months with two 4-point majors and a 3-point major.

Buzz has also proven to be an excellent agility competitor; he was the first Golden breed champion to complete the AKC MX,MXJ titles; he also has USDAA Advanced Agility Dog and Relay Masters titles with 5 of 7 legs towards the Master Agility Dog, a NADAC Standard Excellent title, a NADAC Open Gamblers title, and a NADAC Open Jumpers title. Many legs have been with placements. He also has qualified for and competed in the AKC Agility Nationals in 1998, 1999 and 2000.

Buzz continues his winning ways even in his veteran years! Buzz truly honored us all by competing in the Veteran Sweepstakes class at the Chesapeake Golden Retriever Club Specilaty show on April 30, 2005 - and earning the rosette for Best Veteran in Sweepstakes under breeder-judge Tammy Tomlinson! Buzz then competed in the Best of Breed competition, winning the Best of Opposite Sex ribbon as well under breeder-judge Michael Faulkner!

The very next weekend Buzz was doing what he loves to do - retrieving!

Buzz, competing with the youngsters in the Hunt Test at the Labrador Retriever Club of the Patomac on May, 8th, 2005, earned his Master Hunter title.

As far as we know - there is nothing that Buzz cannot do! And he will never let a few gray hairs stop him!
