Moondust history

 

In 1988 the first Golden Retriever came into our lives, bought as a pet from a local breeder.

One is only one, and after a while we decided to bring in a second one, his name was Max (Fiveshill Amazing Snowflake).

With Max we started our showcareer, we achieved some very nice results with him.

 

The Moondust prefix was established at 1993.

This was also the year that we imported Garbank Rainbow , the foundation bitch of our kennel.

In April 1996 we breed our first litter with Garbank Rainbow and Ch. Nose to Nose of the Hellacious Acres.

We kept a bitch out of this litter and named her Moondust Anneliesa, she proved to be a wonderful broodbitch.

Her litter brother Moondust After All at Garbank Lislone(1 CC in the UK) moved to Kate and Jim Crosbie at the Garbank Lislone kennel.

That same year we imported a puppy dog from Kate and Jim Crosbie who became the later well known Sh.Ch.Garbank Lislone Jackpot (Sh.Ch.Garbank Lislone Edition x Garbank Maschenko of Drumlamford).

He is our first Dutch Champion, German and VDH Champion and UK Sh.Ch., a truly historic fact!

His “falling in love” to Moondust Anneliesa resulted in a beautiful litter from which two litter sisters (We couldn’t make up our mind so decided to keep them both) stayed at Moondust .Ch.Moondust Eleanor and Ch.Moondust Emma

They both where successful at shows, Eleanor was a CC and BOB winner and took the Luxemburg and German junior Ch. title and her sister Emma got 9 CC’s with 4 times BOB and became Top winning bitch 2000 in the Netherlands, and took her final CC in 2002 which made her up as a Dutch Champion.

2002 was also the year that our Ch.Garbank Lislone Jackpot took his UK Sh.Ch.title, the first Golden Retriever on the continent with the UK Sh. Ch. title.

In the end of 2003 we have repeat the combination Ch.Garbank Lislone Jackpot ex Moondust Anneliesa we kept a boy out of this last litter from Anneliesa, named him "Moondust Masterpiece" and we never could ever dreamed of how this young boy would push his marks in so many ways.

Right from the start at the age of 10 months he has jumped in to a fabulous show career, in a short period of time he achieved many show titles incl. the World Champion 2006 title in Poland with a BOB.

 

At the time we diside to take a small step backwards from the showingground bud trying to continue breeding quality Goldens at the highest level for those who are interested in one of ours.

 

 

We shipped Goldens to many countries all over the world, for instance the: UK, US, France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Swiss, Poland, Rusia, Italy, Australia, Norway, etc etc.

 

 

Best wishes to everybody,

Ada and Fred Smink & Goldens at Moondust.
