Anthony, Lucy, Chatham & Lucinda Napoli are proud to introduce you to Pegram Golden Retrievers. Primarily, our Goldens are our wonderful pets, but competing with our Golden Retrievers in both the confirmation and obedience arena is our family enjoyment! Our involvement in Goldens began in 1994 when we purchased our first Golden, Elliott. Since then our family has certainly grown.
As soon as Chatham and Lucinda were old enough to compete in the AKC Junior Showmanship events, our participation and commitment in this sport changed immensely. Competing with our dogs has since become an activity that involves the entire family and makes for many fun camping trips in the RV!
Chatham and Lucinda have shown competitively since 2005 and continue to show in Juniors as well as the breed competition. Our dogs are exclusively shown by Chatham and Lucinda with great success! Chatham and Lucinda's handling started with the help and expertise of John and Megan Mello. Chatham and Lucinda work for Greg and Jane Myers as often as they can. They have collectively won over 150 Best in Show wins and 13 National Specialty wins with 8 different breeds.
We cannot have "Our Family" page without mentioning Toni Norton and her willingness to let us have our first show dog "Fenway" GCH CH Pawnee’s Baby Ruth – Toni put a lot of trust in us and in Chatham to show Fenway in the breed ring as well as juniors. Well, Chatham sure did make Toni proud! She put a Group 1 and a Champion title on Fenway before he was three years old and Chatham was only 13.
In May of 2010 we welcomed another addition to our Golden Retriever family thanks to Jane Myers and Erika Bigott of De La Vega Golden Retrievers. “Michael” MBISS GCH CH De La Vega Orange I Fabulous BISS. Michael completed his championship before he was 17 months and Lucinda just turned 13 at the time. He finished his Grand Championship before he was 23 months old. Every point was owner / junior handled.
Enjoy your visit!
