Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. I have attached a picture of Murphy—he’s got a sweet disposition but is still just a big puppy. I think he will be a great dog once he matures a bit. Take care.

We have purchased 2 dogs from these breeders. One is 8 months old and the other is 2 months old. I highly recommend going here above all other locations because of their personality, demeanor, and the care they receive as puppies. The owners, Sharon & James have a clean and beautiful area for these dogs.
My family lives in New Hampshire so the process for getting them home is fairly easy. It requires 2 full days, 1 for travel, and 1 for recovery. The requirements for flying these puppies are simple. They need 2 different vaccines which Sharon takes care of and they must be 2 months old. We fly into Tucson around 12-3 PM arrival time. Then we rent a car from the airport and drive the 1 hour 20 min to the Chiricahua Retrievers location. Upon arrival, we go over the paperwork with Sharon or James. This takes roughly 30 min. We then drive to the Phoenix Airport. The drive is roughly 3 hours, not including rest stops for the dog. The reason for the change in the airport is because of the direct flights to major airports on an overnight flight. We fly directly to Boston out of Phoenix which is roughly a 5 hour flight. We take the red eye so the dog sleeps the most of the flight. It takes off between 10-11 PM. In preparation for this flight we stop feeding the dog at 4 pm and give them small amounts of water to keep them hydrated but prevent the constant need for them to use the bathroom. We use Jetblue for our direct flights out of Phoenix. The cost and requirements for flying the puppy is $125 and you have to have a carrier that the dog can stand up and turn around in. Again, the dog has to have its vaccines which you will get a record of from Sharon or James. And the dog must be 8 weeks old. Upon arrival to the destination we take them directly to the dog relief areas in the airport. Then give the dog water and some food. We head home from there.
Sharon and James are fantastic business owners. They have a personal touch to communicating and are always accommodating to your travel and pickup schedule. We have had an excellent experience working with them. There are Golden Retriever breeders all over the country but we won’t go anywhere else. We will gladly travel the 1700+ miles for these amazing puppies.
Annabelle is doing well. She is 3 and half years old.
I was going for a hike and put on a hat.
Needless to say she didn’t like my hat and pulled it off.
I placed it on her and got a shot.
We love her so much and is a joy.
Clover is doing well. This might not be as cute as the other photos in your newsletter but for some reason, she thinks this is a trampoline.
We are so in love.
My boyfriend & I got our little baby Odin from Sharon & we are so in love! He is so well behaved already at 3 months, & he has the sweetest little personality. Thank you Sharon for being so amazing! We definitely cannot recommend her enough & I look forward to getting plenty of more goldens from Sharon!
He has been so friendly and easy to train. Loves to play and gets tons of attention in the neighborhood. We get compliments all the time about his behavior and how cute he is! I happily recommend your business to them and have never had such a nice dog before.
My First Vet Visit
I was checking out your website last night and saw that you have a new lab litter…Dad is named Jasper. Coincidentally, I named the pup I adopted from you on March 19th Jasper too! He is growing like a weed (around 20 lbs now, doubled in size since his 8-week checkup) and is a typical lab pup; curious, smart, loves to eat, etc. He is graduating from puppy class on Tuesday and has been invited to an intermediate class for another 6 weeks because he learns so quickly! He is benefiting from the training and meeting new dogs. After his last shot on 5/15, we will explore the world more weather permitting!
Thanks for allowing me to adopt Jasper!
