Summer Brook Pretty in Paisley RE
Paisley is a very easy going and lovable dog. She is a super combination of playful and fun, while still loving to sit and be petted.
Paisley is our “easiest” dog. Though she loves attention as much as any of them, she is the least pushy to get it. If the other dogs are getting petted by one person in our family, she’ll go see if she can get some petting from another person rather than competing with the pack.
Paisley gets along really well with other dogs. All of our dogs get along in the sense that they never fight. However, Paisley is all of our dog’s favorite dog to play with.
Paisley loves to play fetch, go for jogs, and chase us around our property while we are on our mule. She loves to stick right with us rather than to go off exploring on her own. She is not as driven as some of our other dogs, but we absolutely love her laid-back, but fun nature.

DNA Health Test Results for Paisley
PRA2 – Paisley is either a clear or a carrier. Her dad, Luke, is clear. Her mom, Piper, is either a clear or a carrier. Since all our boys are clear, we won’t test Paisley (unless at some point we consider using an outside stud that is not clear. Then we’d of course have her tested.) PRA1 and PRA2 are recessive genes. If one parent is clear, no puppies will be affected by it.
Ichthyosis – clear. Paisley was identified as Miss Paisley. If you look at the entire document, you’ll see that we were really blessed with this litter. Four of the five girls in this litter were clear. Their dad was a carrier and their mom was clear. Statistically, we should have had 50/50 clears and carriers! Paisley’s report is on the second page of the scanned document if you click on the above link.
K9data.com is the website that Golden Retriever breeders have posted pedigrees on for years. On this website, you can follow the dogs lineage back many many generations. However, the website was attacked in late September by a virus and they are still trying to rebuild it. It is mostly rebuilt but I wrote the following to let people know what I knew about her pedigree while it was down. The next paragraphs have additional info beyond k9data. The ages and information is what I know as of October 2022.
Paisley’s Mom: Summer Brook Nothing Keep the Ball Rolling UD RE CGC – Piper is now living with friends in New Mexico. These friends also have one of Piper’s puppies. Piper is now 7 1/2 and is healthy and active.
Paisley’s Dad: Dream Max Lugo CGC. (Luke). I got Luke from Jennie Andersson at Dream Max in Sweden. Jennie is a VERY well respected breeder in Europe and in fact she will not sell her dogs to anyone in the U.S. unless she knows them. Even then, she does not ship them and there are less than a handful of American breeders who she has trusted with one of her dogs. I had a mutual friend to recommend me and then I had to fly to Sweden and spend the weekend with Jennie and her family before being approved to take one of her dog’s home. Over the years, I have been to Sweden three times to meet up with Jennie and get dogs from her.
Luke is now living with friends in Florida. He is 8 years old and still healthy and active.
Paisley’s Mom’s Mom: Summer Brook Always Have Hope (Hope has been gone from us since she was about 5 years. Last we heard from her owners I believe was early this year and she was still healthy. She is 11 years old now)
Paisley’s Mom’s Dad: Tramin Tangerine Dream CDX CGC RE (Jack is 11 years old and living with friends of ours that we keep up with regularly. He was born in the Ukraine and came to live with us at 6 months of age. He is still healthy and active.)
Paisley’s Dad’s Mom: Luke’s mom is Abnall’s Scarlett. Scarlett was bred and born in England. She was raised by Jennie Andderson at Dream Max. Jennie is no longer breeding Goldens to my knowledge and I have lost touch. However, if alive, Scarlett would be well over 15 years I think. I would guess that she has passed by now. Luke was out of her last litter. I think she was seven when he was born.
Paisley’s Dad’s Dad: Luke’s Dad was from Spain: Spain CH. SE U(U)CH. DK. CH(U)NOCH NORDCH. (CH.CIE.) First Come Del Valle De Pielagos (12/16/2009 ; Call name: “Eliott” ; Gender: M ; Honorifics: Multi.CH. Eliott lived to be over 13 years. I do not know how he died.
Paisley’s Great Grandparents on Paisley’s Mom’s Side (I cannot remember this far back about her dad’s side)
I remember further back on this line because I personally owned the dogs or bred to them. The other dogs not listed are grandparents of dogs in Europe that I at one time checked out very carefully. However, it’s now been over ten years.
Paisley’s Mom’s Mom’s Mom: Skylon Enchanting Grace. Gracie was our very first, our foundation bitch. She is still alive and health at 13 1/2. She lives with the same friends who have our Jack (see above).
Paisley’s Mom’s Mom’s Dad: Etched in Sand v.d. Beerse Hoeve – Reuben was owned by and lived with our good friends at Honor Therapy Dogs. He died of a tic born illness at either 10 or 11 years of age. Reuben was bred in the Netherlands, the son of an English show Ch and a Dutch show Ch.
Paisley’s Great Great Grandparents that I can remember
Paisley’s Mom’s Mom’s Mom’s Dad: Best in Show Specialty Ch. Giltedge Traveller, J.H. W.C.X. Gulliver was from Australia.
Paisley’s Mom’s Mom’s Dad’s Dad: Champion Xanthos Apple Jack
Hopefully the K9 Data website will be back up soon for more complete information on the dogs back further in Paisley’s pedigree that I just can no longer remember.
RA – Rally Advanced – She just earned this title in December and AKC hasn’t gotten me the paperwork yet. Will scan it in as soon as possible.
RE – Rally Excellent – She just earned this title in December and AKC hasn’t gotten me the paperwork yet. Will scan it in as soon as possible.
The pictures below were taken when Paisley was only 16 months of age.
