Welcome to the Michigan home of Topmast Golden Retrievers, Pat & Tom Swallows, and their four Goldens.
Tom and I have had Goldens since 1972, back when people would ask us if our first male Golden was "part Irish Setter"? Back when there were many people who didn't even know what a Golden Retriever was. We've been hooked on them ever since.
In that time, we've had eight goldens. We currently have four female goldens; Abbi, who is 11, and two of Abbi's daughters, Chime, age 7 and Kerri, age 4, and Chime's daughter Diamond, who just turned one.
We love competing with our goldens and occasionally have a litter, done in conjunction with our co-breeder Gayle Watkins, of
. We strive to produce healthy Goldens with proper temperament, sound structure, and great work ethic. Our puppies are raised in our home with early neurological stimulation and socialization. I compete with my dogs in agility, obedience, rally, and field work. Tom does upland game hunting with all of them. Come on in and enjoy some of our favorite pictures of our girls, and some of our dogs of the past.
We have been a member of the Golden Retriever Club of America for the 40 years we have had our goldens.
