We took her to obedience class where the teacher asked us if we had ever considered showing her as she thought she looked very nice. We said no but if she would help us we would try. She helped us enter our first local show and gave us a hand in grooming, to the best of her ability, as Goldens were not her breed.
The day of the show was a day I will never forget. Chelsea went WB and BW from the 9-12 puppy class and all the way to Best Puppy in Show!! This being my first time in the ring ever, I was in shock, and was immediately hooked!
Chelsea finished her Can Ch. with multiple Best Puppy in Shows always handled by me. She finished her Am/Can CD with 3 firsts in both countries.
Chelsea produced my first litter which produced my first Champion, Am/ Can/ Jpn Ch. Brookshire's Unforgetable Fire. She is the great-grandmother of the top winning Golden (dog AND bitch) in the history of the breed in Canada, Am Can Ch Eirene's Soul Provider SDHF OS (Tom) and Am Can Ch Eirene's Soul and Inspiration SDHF Am Can OD (Bobbie). Chelsea is the Grandmother of Canada's #1 Golden in 1999, multiple BIS, BISS Am/Can Ch. Goldenmoment's 007 os, SDHF ( Bond ).
I owe her everything. She was the best teacher I could have ever had. This website is dedicated in her honor.
