|Debi Koopman picked out the best puppy for me when she entrusted me with Bijou. I didn't want her to have to fly by herself to Los Angeles, so Tom Caruthers raised her for a month with one job in mind. Teach her to retrieve. When I picked Bijou up at the 1991 GRCA National, she was retrieving pheasant at 100 yards! She was perfect! She was quick to learn anything and was soon in training for conformation and obedience. Bijou turned into the multi-purpose Golden I had always wanted. She could easily switch from one venue to the other in a single day. Once I showed her in conformation and then raced over to enter a field fun day. The judges smirked as I struggled into the field in my skirt and dress shoes but that changed when they awarded Bijou a first place! And when I decided that she should take it "easy" during her first pregnancy, she learned agiity! She gave me two litters of puppies who followed in her pawprints, making Bijou an Outstanding Dam.|
|Bijou continued showing her entire life. She was the first Golden to earn an AXJ and was probably one of the oldest to earn an MXJ at age 12. At the 2004 GRCA National Specialty Bijou competed in conformation, agility and field and was the oldest girl in the parade of titleholders. She went to work with me for several years, tho she wasn't much of a guard dog. She loved her therapy dog work and never minded dressing up as an easter bunny somehow knowing that the seniors got a big kick out of it. Sadly, and quite unexpectedly, she collapsed and died of hemangiosarcoma before I could get her to the emergency vet. It was the best way to go for her; she never had a slow day in her life.
Bijou was a jewel, a gem, a charming little person.
