Wink was born on October 2, 2018.

conceive. John's surgery was October 15, 2018, just 13 days
prior. Wink's litter was born in Minnesota; we had no knowledge
of her birth.
Both John and I were very
disappointed that we were not to get a California pup and
consequently called Kaye Fuller to ask if she knew of any field
golden litters available. This was the day before Thanksgiving
