The Latest News...

 After many years of breeding my lovely goldens, I have retired.  Feel free to contact me for puppy referrals as I can refer you to a good breeder.

Note: One of my past customers who has my dogs' bloodlines just had a litter of puppies and they will be ready July 6th, 2018. Any more info on this, please contact me at or call me at 248-752-7000 and I can pass on their info.

 The Kennel and property in Farmington Hills are now for sale. If interested, please contact me at above info.

 I have enjoyed the many people I have met and have become good friends with many of you.  After over twenty years, I look forward to less "work" but it was such fun work!  I hope to keep in touch with many of you.

 With much affection to all of you, Micki

Webmaster created a blog entry Dear Chien d'Or...

Dear Chien d'Or,

I had to say goodbye to my best friend Friday night. Andy, my Andy, was such a wonderful friend. I was blessed with him for almost 15 1/2 years. Logically I know that it was time (the mass he had growing beat his body but not his spirit. He smiled at me even in the last few minutes). I didn't want to be selfish and hold onto him when I should let him go. 
I do believe that I'll see him again someday. I'm a Christian and I believe that God cares about all of his creations. It just hurts so much, I feel like a part of me has been ripped out.
I apologize , I had intended to thank you for my wonderful friend, not to go on and on. Thank you for listening , I appreciate it more than I can express. 
He was Bonnie-Bowl-Carrier's son (August of 2001). I don't know if you remember us. we were moving to Florida and picked Andy and his brother up. We were delivering his brother to a family in Georgia. My father, Randy Dale, flew to Michigan about 6 years ago for his girl, Sigrid.
Does Bonnie still have any relatives with you ? 
Best wishes,
Jen Parr  (née Dale)

We purchased our wonderful golden retriever, Riley, from you 13 years ago. She was born on May 1, 2003. Riley is still doing well, and brings joy to our family every day. She is such a treasure.
Riley is probably the most photographed dog as we are constantly taking pictures of every sweet thing she does, and text it to the family (our daughters live in other states). She has a very good life, and moved to Houston two years ago, but spends five months of the year with us enjoying Cape Cod. She loves the water, and now that she is older, she just enjoys laying down and relaxing in the sun and listening to the ocean.
We have had goldens in the past, but none that have lived this long (one lived to 12 and the other 8). Thank you so much for breeding such beautiful, healthy dogs.
My best,
Patti Balhorn

Webmaster created a blog entry Zeke has grown up!...

We wanted to send an update on how our little Zeke has been doing. He's not so little anymore, he's almost 50 pounds and is the sweetest boy. He loves other dogs, and gets to play with them constantly at his play groups and at the parks. He's starting to enjoy playing fetch, but mostly prefers to wrestle with other pups.
We just wanted to let you know how happy he makes us. He is gorgeous and we couldn't ask for anything more from him. He is so well behaved and gives us so much love. Thank you so much for the perfect addition to our household.

We are so thankful for Micki.  It is refreshing to find someone who loves their dogs as much as we do.  She sees her dogs as much more than a ‘business’ – they are an extension of her heart and soul and she cares about every single one of them.  When we had questions about our older golden, she gave us guidance and support and answered every one the questions I asked and Duncan is a healthier boy now!

She is very knowledgeable about Goldens – from how much food to feed them; supplements to support with; medical, holistic and vaccination protocols to suggest; she even showed me a cool way to trim their tail feathers!  And she microchips every one of her puppies before they go to their adopted families.

We are blessed to have two of Micki’s Goldens in our home and they are amazing, sweet, confident, smart and healthy boys.  We recommend anyone looking for a wonderful family member to visit Chien d’Or!

Dear Micki,
               I wanted to send along a great big thank you for the latest addition to our family from Chien d'Or  Goldens . As you know, we were devastated when we lost our last Golden that we had obtained from you several years ago. Thank you so much for being there for us in our time of grief and so quickly seeing to it that we had another of your wonderful Goldens in our lives. My family and I have been around different breeds of dogs and different breeders but we have never been more impressed by a breeder that is as loving and caring as you are with your “friends”. I use the term “friend” because that is the temperament and loving nature of your dogs. They are laid back, friendly and just absolutely wonderful and have the perfect temperament to be a “best friend” for life. We feel blessed to have found you and wish every family could have the joy that we have shared with the Goldens we have gotten from you. Your attention to details about the dogs health and well being are a testament to your love and appreciation of not only the dogs best interest but the best interests of the families that adopt them as well. Please let us know when you have the litter we spoke about when we last visited and we will return to obtain another friend. You are the best!!!

Micki, Don’t know if f you remember me but we bought two beautiful pups from you about 4 years now. I just wants to let you know that they ,and the grandbabies, are the joy in our lives. They have been the best dogs we could have ever hoped for and not only do they love us. They love each other. I am attaching a picture of the second one we got and will continue to periodically send future pics.

Thanks again for being so diligent in your  breeding practices and the love you started them off with.
