The Morningsage Goldens kennel name originated in Southwestern
Minnesota, where we became interested in showing our dogs in the late 1960's
and eventually becoming Breeder/Ownder handlers 1970 through the 1990's.
My last "Morningsage" litter in 1999 gave me "Win" and "Glitz", who remained
with me as loving pets. I continued showing my "Brylin" Welsh Springer and "Advent"
Golden boy on a limited basis into 2006, when a life change brought me to Iowa.
My website is now about sharing my dogs who are my family, but you can still peruse
my photo history of Morningsage dogs via the drop down menu below if you are interested.
You will also find navigation to my Grooming Tutorials there.
The last of my five Goldens that I moved to Iowa, "Talon" died in June, 2012, so "Boozer"
my CH,CGC & TD "Brylin" Welsh Springer, is the only original dog still living in 2014!
"Jamie", the BIG girl on the left came into my life in Feb. 2011, when Iowa Golden
Retriever Rescue found it necessary to find another hospice Foster home for her. She
came pretty close to "perfect", and was a joy and much loved until she passed in Jan. 2012.
The photo of "Win" below is a composite of a pencil drawing of him at 1 year of age, done
by my late friend & artist Janie Wormsbecker, and a small inset photo taken just before
he went to Rainbow Bridge in July 2011 at 12+ years of age.<
