About Me

Grown up with the German Shepards of my father´s family I had the strong wish since I was little to have a dog as my own companion. It should take a while to fullfill this wish…

In the middle of the 80ies I met my friend Cathy, who had a Golden Retriever girl as familydog. Her name was Anka and I just loved her way to play and how gentle she was with everybody.

1994 I lived in Costa Rica, Central America, where I met Ticket. Ticket was a north american Golden retriever boy, who moved with his family from Canada to Costa Rica. I immediatley felt in love with this intelligent and sweet dog. I was extremly sad, that I could not spend more time with him- after a few months I had to go back to Austria.

1995 came my very much loved Big Ben vom Golden Glemmtal aka Benny, Bennyman in my house. With him I „discovered“ the world of Golden retrievers.

1998 I got my hunter´s licence.

1999 came Benny´s son Ador aka Booty to join us. He lost his home and I could not resist to keep this stubborn boy. He was 2.5 years old and totaly uneductaed. Wow, what a challenge!

2002-2003 I was asked by the Austrian retriever Club to work in the commitee as breed secretary. It was an interesting time.

2005 came a little Frenchman Abracadabra du Bois de la Rayére aka Bécibär to live with us.

2006 I was proud to pick up my cute dreamboy Bleu Blanc Rouge du Bois de la Rayére aka Bobsi. He is out of a very special litter. His parents are both bred by Bruno Facq (France) and are Multi Champions. Bleu Blanc Rouge´s mother is a working champion as well.

2007 came my very first girl Finshelley Darling aka Kimmy bred by Iris Jauschnegg, Austria.

2008 In June I passed the examen to be a trainer in the Austrian retriever Club.

2008 In august I got the confirmation by the ÖKV/FCI for my kennel name: „OKAYDOKAY“ 

2009 23th of july the first „Okaydokay“ litter was born. Father: VDH Ju CH Shardanell Showstopper (UK Import), mother: Austrian Double CH 09 Finshelley Darling. I could not resist and kept Okaydokay Artist out of this combination.
