**Maddie is negative for all genetic conditions tested including breed specific testing: PRCD, PRA-1, PRA-2, CLN5, SOD1A, DMD, COLQ, COL7A1, COL1A1 and PNPLA2 (Ichthyosis type 2). She is a carrier of PNPLA1 (Ichthyosis type 1), as are most golden retrievers. What this means is that 50% of her offspring will be carriers of ichthyosis.  As long as she is not bred with a dog that is also a carrier, the pups will NOT have Ichthyosis.

LILY

Golden Retriever 
5/25/13 - 2/10/2023

Lily was the most loyal, gentile, friendliest, sweetest, smartest golden you could ever meet.  She had a true love for people, swimming and literally ANYTHING that involved being by your side.  Lily loved going to the beach, kayaking, golf cart rides, swimming in her pool, and boating.  She was the reason we fell in love with goldens and breeding. She was taken far too soon from an awful, rare cancer called Stromal Cell Sarcoma. We miss this sweet girl with all our hearts. Cancer sucks.
