Marco’s big, typical English head, sweet soft face, expression and super sweet, extremely laid back disposition are Marco’s calling card. He is happiest on a couch or a bed, loves getting belly rubs and moans when he carries his favorite stuffed pheasant. He has the kindest, most gentle disposition you can imagine.
Marco is Honor's third English golden from the DreamMax kennel in Sweden. We are proud to have him as a part of our Honor family.
Marco is siring puppies that have his same traits and many of his pups have had major impact in the lives of those that are physically and emotionally challenged.
Reuben was imported from the Netherlands at the age of 8 weeks old.
He never had a bad day - was always happy, tail wagging and a smile on his face.
Reuben finished his Championship easily achieving many Best of Breeds along the way with a deep, wide chest and powerhouse body. With OFA "Excellent" hips, PennHip in the 90th percentile and DNA clear for PRA and Ichthyosis, Reuben is very strong genetically.
He has produced many working assistance therapy dogs, seizure alert offspring and Guide Dogs for the Blind. He has been dominant in producing multiple titled offspring with many Champions, Best Op in Sweeps specialty winners, agility and performance contenders.
Banks is the newest addition to the Honor family. It was a delight when he was offered as a 1 1/2 year old having all of his health and genetic clearances already obtained. Banks is not only handsome but also has an outstanding temperament! He is a good sized dog with a big English-style head, beautiful structure, a thick full coat with long feathering and hunky, all-boy body.
After a very long trip to the USA, Banks walked right in as if he'd lived here his whole life! He is happy, happy, happy all the time! His tail never stops wagging and his face never stops smiling. He absolutely loves people, other dogs, stuffed animals, tennis balls and water in any form. Needless to say, it feels like we've hit the doggy lottery with being able to have such a stunning boy.
Banks was born in The Netherlands from one of the top producer of champion goldens in Europe by parents that are equally as beautiful. His pedigree combines some of the most stunning goldens and top producers in the world.
We describe Lark as 'an old soul.' She's super sweet and just a wonderful girl with that perfect personality. No wonder, she comes from Honor lines that date back to the early 1960's!
Lark is a light honey color which looks cream in the sun with a soft, straight coat. She has an endearing expression with black pigment and beautiful eyes.
Lark is a blend of Honor's historical lineage blended with imported English goldens from Sweden. Not yet fully mature with her adult coat, Lark loves to please, be near her family and has an exquisite, intuitive therapy dog temperament.
Imported from Austria, Esper is a dream come true! She is the epitome of what a Golden temperament should be. She is as sweet as the day is long, she loves everyone she meets, loves dogs, cats and puppies, is very laid back but with really cute characteristics! She loves to grab any part of your clothing in her mouth to “carry it” for you. The littlest stuffed toys are her favorites and she gives the best hugs.
Another European Import, Esper is a beautiful cream color with a large, broad head, good sized bone and a full teddy bear coat. Honor is excited to see what she produces in the next generation - if they are anything like her, the Honor family will be very, very happy!
Ruthie is her own 'person' bubbling with personality plus! She makes everyone laugh as she does such funny things and has such adorable expressions. She has intense, ‘look at me’ eye contact with an eager effort to please and love on everybody. Besides the desire to please and be close to her people, Ruthie is absolutely gorgeous with AKC perfection to the GRCA standard of the breed. Bone and legs like tree stumps, long straight coat, perfect balance and angulation with movement that makes her look like she is floating. Add a beautiful classic head, black pigment and a mischievous, laughing expression and you have the “Ruthie Package!"
Last one in is a rotten egg!
Ruthie LOVES to swim and will be the first in the lake, pool or mud hole...
Ruthie's daddy is an English golden from the Ukraine. She is one of Dayna’s 11 Angels who ALL went on to advanced service dog work with several service dog agencies and placements with veterans or individuals with disabilities.

“The love that your dog has for you is as close as you will come on this earth to the love that Jesus Christ has for you: unconditional. The relationship between a dog and his master is strikingly similar to the relationship between a believer in Jesus Christ and God.” Psalms and Proverbs for Dogs by Chris Nagy
