Poppins has received her first critique from Judge Jeremy Barron:- "Six-month baby, who just oozed potential. Just loved her and it was a shame that she was just so young on the day. Very confident and strutted her stuff even for a novice. I long to go over he again when she is older, to see if she reaches her full potential"
Thank you for this very nice critique.

A Happy New year to all our visitors. Welcome to the 11th year of the Messano Golden Retrievers website.

2010 was a successful year for the Messano Kennel, our star of the year being Messano Urban Myth. Rumour won many 1sts, Best Of Breeds and gained his Junior Warrant. He also became a father for the first time and joined his best mate Tommy (Ritzilyn Rock On Tommy) in our stud team.

Towards the end of the year, Beattie (Messano Phonafriend), produced us another lovely litter to Sh Ch Ritzilyn Male Order JW, a repeat of the Rumour litter. Rumour has been joined in the Messano family by his two sisters Poppins and Treasure, whom we hope to start showing in February.
