We would like to thank everyone for their Christmas cards and messages and to wish all a Happy New Year. Welcome to the 13th year of the Messano Golden Retrievers website.
2012 was a good year for us both in the showring and out. Rumour and Poppins continued their winning ways and although Beattie only managed 3 shows, she was BOB at all of them!
Amongst her wins Poppins gained her Junior Warrant in January and RBIS at BD&CGRC in the summer, but it was Rumour that stole the show gaining CCs & BOB at Southern Counties under judge Gill Atha and Driffield under Anne Falconer. He also gained the final points for his ShCM.

In January Beattie had her final litter, sired by our own Tommy, and in September Sunny had a litter by Ben.

We were also thrilled that Tommy and Rumour progeny had success in the ring, in particular Rumour's son Polo (Stvincent Royal Mint JW) who had a super year including BP at Crufts.

There was a new arrival of the two legged variey in May when Annabelle's baby brother Joshua arrived.

On a sad note Messano Otis Redding JW died very suddenly in April, a dog with a larger than life personality he will always be missed.
