This was one of the best days ever for the Original Gemini Goldens!


At the Westminster Show, our-very-first-ever entry, True, earned a Judges Award of Merit (JAM), certainly the happiest and most significant win for Gemini, and a heart-stopping thrill for us all at The Show! Congratulations to True and to Kathy Cudak for all her efforts in his success, and our thanks for bringing this honor to Gemini Goldens.

09-24-08 to 09-26-08

At the Golden Retriever National, Chase got 2nd in the Sweepstakes competition, and Ruff a second place in the regular classes. True was honored as a member of the Top Twenty at the Saturday night dinner.

Award of Merit!

Gemini's"True" stood out at Westminster (February, 2008).


Based on his more recent wins, True is currently (February, '08) ranked #5 Golden Retriever in the Nation.

We were very excited to receive a Judge's Award of Merit (JAM) for placing Fourth at Westminster, beating out about 30 other Goldens in the process.

Our thanks to Kathy Cudak for all the sacrifices she made along the way to get this far; and to Rindi Gaudet, who did still another fabulous job showing him under a great deal of pressure! Of course, True is still young in comparison to the other dogs who were at the show, so we expect that he will be back again! We wind up very pleased with the state of our breeding program, since True is a son of Dallas (bred by Candi and Dick) and a grandson from our original Houston and Brittany breeding back in year 2000. And remember that Charmer is a full-blooded younger brother of True!!!



True (Ch Gemini's Chants To Excel BISS) has been selected to compete at the prestigious New York Westminster Dog Show in February. We are very excited to have one of our Gemini dogs reach this show level. Our thanks go to True's owner, Kathy Cudak, whose time, effort and expense got True to where he is, and where he is going! Laney (Goldentrip Gemini's Abbey Road) suprised everyone by winning two (2) 4-point, major shows in one weekend in Boston. Laney now needs only minor-point wins to complete her Champion!


Laney won the Open Class, and Reserve Winners ribbons today. 12-06-07 In Boston today, Laney (Summit Gemini's Abbey Road), handled by Rindi Gaudet, won Best of Opposite Sex, a Four-point major win, and her first points.


True (Ch Gemini's Chants To Xcel) is winning up a storm! He has now won Best of Breed in the last EIGHT shows in which he has competed! (Ocala and Montgomery, AL) And along the way he won one Group I and two Group IV placements, earning six points towards the Show Dog Hall of Fame designation.


At Ocala, on November 16, 17 and 18 (three days in a row!!!), True (Ch Gemini's Chants to Xcel) won Best of Breed, beating approximately 59 other golden retrievers each day! On Friday he placed Group IV, and on Saturday he placed Group I in the Sporting Group, only losing to a poodle for Best In Show that day. Owner Kathy Cudak is planning on taking True to Westminster in February.


On November 2, Skye got her Champion, handled by Sherri Samel Hurst, in Tulsa, OK. We are very proud of this beautiful daughter of Dallas and Nasdaq, who will be bred to Sherri's "Brighton" next week, and then retire to mom hood here in Florida.

Charmer (Gemini's Lucky Charm) won needs only one major win to get his Champion. He is at home now, growing out his proper coat. We expect him to be ready to show this Fall. Bacall (Gemini's Key Largo Two CD) expects to complete the third leg of her Companion Dog Excellent qualification this Fall also.


True (Ch Gemini's Chants To Xcel) won Best In Show Bred-By at two separate International shows in Orlando on 10-14-07. He is busy working towards the Show Dog Hall of Fame designation of the GRCA.


Charmer got his first major in Virginia over Memorial Day weekend. Our latest star in the show ring is "Charmer" (Gemini's Lucky Charm), who in March, April and May, 2007 has already taken nine points as a 14 month old puppy. Now he needs his majors to finish his championship. We are trying for his major wins in Hampton, VA over the Memorial Day weekend, when he will continue to be handled by Rindi Gaudet and Correy.

Recently, Gemini's Chants To Xcel (True) became the first-ever Gemini dog to go Group I. "One large step" for our Kennel. Congrats to Kathy Cudak for her True dedication. 8 SDHF Points!!


Harry (Creekside Farms Fugitive to Summit JH) recently completed his Senior Hunter title and is now working toward Master Hunter

Prior to 2007

In older news, on Saturday August 19, 2006, Gemini's X-Static (Dylan) won an exciting Best of Breed in Tampa. Gemini's Rockets Red Glare (Spark) went Best of Opposite Sex (to True) from Puppy 9 to 12 month Bitches. The next day we were all even more thrilled as Gemini's Chants to Xcel (True) went Best of Breed and then went on to a Sporting Group II win, while at the very same time, Dylan went Reserve Winners Dog (to True) and Gemini's Fireworks in Flight (Roman) won his Puppy 9 to 12 months Dog Class.

We have never won this many ribbons at one show, nor Xcelled so well in the doing!

True also took a WD/BOW/BOB over 4 Specials for his first Major (4 points) in the previous show (all from the 12-18 month Class) at the age of 17 months. He now has 3 SDHF points and is the first Gemini dog to place in Group competition. NOTE: Our Houston and Brittany are Grandparents to all four of the above dogs; our Dallas is the mother of Dylan and True, and Debra Busch's Whiskey is the mother of Spark and Roman.

Two of our female puppies, Fallchase Gemini's High Stakes (Keno) and Gemini's Only a Paper Moon (Skye) are being shown around the State this Summer. Skye won a four-point Major at the Houston Texas Specialty from the Bred-By Class, on July 22, 2006.

Ch Tejas Caribbean Direct Flight CDX RN NA NAJ WC CGC (Houston) got his WC title in June, 2006, which qualifies him for the Versatility Excellent Award from the Golden Retriever Club of America. We are now training with him to get his Utility Dog (UD) and Junior Hunter (JH) titles.

"In older news": Dallas cleaned up at the Golden Retriever National Specialty in Orlando, in October, 2002. She was first in both Agility Trials, earning two legs on her Novice Agility title, and, in Conformation, won Winners Bitch, over 217 competing bitches. We were thrilled with what was a "once in a lifetime" win. Almost as an anti-climax, Dallas won her Champion later in that year. Dallas is the mother of Dylan and True.
