Sire: Ch Taumac Golden Aussie

Dam:  Taumac Golden Demi

Owned and Bred by:  Taumac Kennels (Roger and Patricia Bridgford)

Susie was a late maturer in that she gained only one Challenge before she was twelve months of age, then getting her next around two years of age, but gaining her champion title before she was 30 months.

Susie had a checkered start to her home life breaking Patricia’s ankle when she was 10 weeks old.  (Patricia was out of action for some 12 months).

As the showing fraternity knew, Susie was “full on” around the show ring, but in the actual ring she was a delight to handle, and really enjoyed the atmosphere of winning.

If it was not for Jazmyn Wray who handled Susie in her later days, asking us one day how many challenge points she had and on finding she had about 600, Jazmyn urged us to keep showing her until she gained her Grand Champion title, which Susie did on 1 January 2006.

Susie won the GRCV “Top Bitch of the Year” on three occasions.  The third was last year as a ten year old.   She also won the Top Challenge Bitch on two occasions, as well as the Top Australian Bred for the past four years.   Susie won numerous In Show all breeds in each class from Minor Puppy through to Open, with two Runner Up in Shows all breed, as well a some ten Best in Group as well as many Runner Up in Group

Susie only had two speeds, flat out, into everything, or full stop and that was only when she was asleep.    Susie was a most enjoyable Golden to have around the home.
