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



Golden Dog Blog

Welcome to my new "updated" website. I have created this for my future and past customers in order that they would be able to communicate with me and other people who have purchased my dogs. For some time I have wanted a way to communicate with everyone about things like "bad" dog foods, up-to-date info on health or anything that I feel you might like to know. Hopefully this will help and it will also offer you an opportunity to communicate with others who have purchased puppies from me. An example would be if you wanted to get all the puppies from the same litter together and have a reunion...or the same Bonnie who just turned 15 in November. I will be posting updates from time to time so please take time to read this. If you have any questions let me always, if you need to talk to me please email me directly at or call me at 248 626 2243.. Thanks! Micki

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
