Last Thursday we said goodbye to our senior Golden Retriever extraordinaire Hugo 02/08/2008 – 04/14/2022 (Canadian and Spanish champion “Sundown De Ria Vela”). From the minute he set foot in Canada until he told us last Thursday that his body could no longer carry his big golden heart he was our happy go lucky ambassador.
We are incredibly thankful that his exceptional golden attributes continue to shine and thrive through his progeny at our kennel. We would like extend our gratitude to his breeders and our dear friends, Antonio and Paloma from the Ria Vela kennel in Cordoba, Spain for giving us the honor of having this wonderful boy as a part of our lives and kennel’s pedigree.
He is greatly missed by all the BelCanto family.
Malu was bred a week ago through an Artificial Insemination process. If everything goes well she will have our next litter of goldens.
We are hoping she comes into season in early March. We will be using frozen semen imported from Europe for this litter.
Mom and puppies are all doing great. The puppies have started exploring their world.
Malu had her puppies on July 20th; 6 girls and 2 boys. Mom and puppies are doing fine. All puppies spoken for already.
