My trip to Europe was way MORE than I ever expected!! Yes, Europe holds the beginning of the wonderful Breed I love so much, the Golden Retriever.I went to the Amsterdam Musuem, the Black Sea, traveled to Twisk and of course the Windmills. I felt I understood so much more of the Netherlands and their lives. This is not just breeding the best dogs in the world to them. It’s a privilage, a lifestyle and a mission of continued improvement. I left with Apollo AND with a piece of the Netherlands deep in my heart. Special “Thank you” to Bart and Charmaine of Ramchaine – Hellacious Acres for the Tour of a Castle, the shopping trip with Bart, meeting Sabastian and the Tips from both of them on Bloodlines and Bitchlines. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. From the USA you can only see pictures of the World class dogs in Europe…I was thrilled to put my hands on……and touch/Hold/Hug some of the best of their breed in their own home. It was a joy I will never forget…..Priceless is my Apollo.
