Ch Hawkwood Iduna - Reserve Best Gundog at Taupo 1/11/09
We bought Stella from our friend Gayle Gill (Hawkwood Golden Retrievers) in 2005. Stella’s father is from the famous Stanroph kennels in the UK (frozen semen was brought in) and her mother’s lines go back to a litter sister of my foundation bitch. She has lived up to her name “Stella” and is an outstanding Golden - full of character at home to a real star in the show ring. Stella has had an incredibly successful show career so far and is one of NZ’s top golden bitches.
As well as an amazing show career, Stella has also excelled as a mother. From her first litter (using frozen semen) with Aus Ch Dream Max Grandmother’s Prospect, 3 show champions have been produced. Her second litter is starting to make their mark with 2 bitches being shown and both having had success in the ring.
Critique: 2007: Beautiful bitch with a lovely attitude and movement. Attractive head and expression, good neck, sound construction throughout, lovely bone, excellent body and topline, strong quarters, lovely coat. Well presented and moves really well.
