As you can see a Golden Retriever's coat can be any shade from cream to golden

My name is Breda Ingle and Goldens have been part of our lives for over fifteen years. I live with my husband Gearóid and our three young children, Darragh, Ellen and Róisín. We previously lived in the City of Dublin, but enjoyed our dogs so much, we felt it would be better for them and us if we lived in the countryside. Now that we have moved, they have plenty of garden space to exercise in.
I am also showing Golden Retrievers for the past fifteen years. It is a hobby that I truly enjoy. The showing bug started with my foundation bitch "Lil" (Lily Mary of Joy of Raistin) she had the sweetest temperament and was a joy to live with. She was born on 3rd September 1999. Unfortunately we lost our precious girl in May 2013 and is missed by all of us. I also showed our second Golden Retriever "Mags" (Kesta Phoebe of Raistin), who sadly passed away in 2008. She was our gentle ben, she had a very calm and loving nature and is sadly missed.
Lil produced Ruby (Raistin Royal Ruby) and Holly (Raistin Racquel) who also live here with us. In that litter I also bred Ir.Sh.Ch. and International Sh.Ch. Raistin Roraigh, he has had numerous wins in the showring. Please click on their pages to find out more information about our girls.
My second home bred champion Ruby's son, "Alfie" is Ir.Sh.Ch. Raistin All My Love, and true to his name is full of love. He also lives here with us. To find out more about "Alfie", click on his page to see some photos.
We also brought a lovely gentle Golden Retriever into our home in the name of "Belle", (Cesarke Ice Ice Baby for Raistin) and have recently introduced from the same show kennel "Flynn" Cesarka King of the Road to Raistin", a young boy full of fun and mischief. Our youngest addition Eve also joined Flynn in the ring in Summer 2014.
