|"I have been
involved in the dog fancy for over 40 years. I breed and show Golden Retrievers. In 1992 the #1
Golden Retriever bitch in the USA was Am. & Can. Ch. Birks Sage Derby of Ankrist who I
bred and co-owned. I currently own 4 Goldens and imported from Scotland this
puppy (shown), Dawnryan Blue Symphony. As he crossed the pond on
Columbus Day he is known as 'Christopher'.
"SOURCE is my
second home. I have been here a long time. Thirty-six years ago (but who is counting?) a close kennel club friend
saw an ad in our local paper, and she said 'here's the job for you'. The ad stated: enjoy
working with animals a plus! So I'm still here enjoying the daily personal contact with
people all over the country, answering questions about SOURCE.
us at SOURCE seem to stay. I know we stay because we have superior products, and because
we have such a tremendous sense of pride knowing our products are helping so many animals.
When the letters come from grateful owners, and they do come, it's a red-letter day! Many
of the letters are real tearjerkers. They truly inspire us to work harder."
Both a valued member
of the SOURCE staff and a SOURCE user, Suzanne's Trowsnest & Birks Golden Retrievers
have been given SOURCE micronutrients since 1979. Suzanne has co-owned and
co-bred several Goldens with her close friend and mentor Marjorie Trowbridge. Marge has
been breeding Golden Retreivers for over 30 years.
"We attribute our success, not only in the show ring, but in the obedience,
field, service and the home is the result of quality, not quantity. Over the years we have
averaged two litters a year."
