Cydney is a very smart dog! I’m convinced, with a little more effort on my part, she could speak English. She certainly knows the word B. A. L. L. As a matter of fact, she know how to SPELL the word. She is highly ball motivated. For instance, take a look at the picture below. Mary, the photographer, was holding the ball and throw stick in one hand and her camera in the other. As long as she held the ball in front of Cydney she stood still — nearly mesmerized.
Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due
All pictures of my dogs in the wildflowers were taken by my friend, and mentor, Mary Livingston. Mary is a Breeder of Merit who has been breeding Golden Retrievers for 30 years. She is a talented breeder, photographer, artist and now she is a friend.
I had the very good fortune of meeting Mary just after our family had moved to northern California. Cydney had come into heat and I was seeking a stud dog. After, what seemed like, a million phone calls I was connected to Mary about her boy Sailor. The rest is history, as the saying goes. Sailor sired Cydney’s first litter in 2018.
