Welcome to TopSpin Goldens!
Along with my husband, Benjamin, we have loved and owned goldens for 37 years. We live in the far North Dallas area. While I spent more than six years heavily involved in golden retriever rescue within the Dallas FortWorth Golden Retriever Club some years back (and dabbled in the obedience ring) my primary focus for the last 24 years has been in the conformation ring. I have achieved 14 AKC championships, five of which are on TopSpin bred dogs. There is also one special, multi-talented TopSpin girl who is titled in the field, obedience and flyball venues and who also does therapy work. I used to be an avid tennis player and still love the sport, so a tennis term became the prefix name on our dogs. Our goldens are important members of our family first and show dogs second. They live in the house with us and are constantly under our feet -- we wouldn’t have it any other way! I have been a Dallas Fort Worth Golden Retriever Club and Golden Retriever Club of America member for 20 years. While traveling to dog shows and spending time with my goldens and all the training, grooming, competing and enjoying the company of my good golden friends is somewhat of an addiction, I also do some occasional breeding. The show ring provides a never-ending source of education in goldens as there is always more to learn about this special breed. My goal in breeding is to keep something for myself that I can love and enjoy and continue competing within the show ring, while doing my best to follow the standard in producing sound, healthy goldens who have all their health clearances, with great temperaments being of utmost importance. Any puppies that I don’t keep for myself I will place in loving companion homes. This TopSpin website contains some of my favorite photos of our goldens, past and present, along with some extended family members, or TopSpin goldens who live with close friends and who we are still very involved with.
