The times I will truly miss are the times that we shared when we were just home. Spending simple times together doing nothing.


Julia –  – Artistry’s Another Thing Coming, SWA, SCM, NW3 Elite, DDCN, EN

I held Julia at 5 weeks old and took her home at 8 weeks. We always had fun and spectacular adventures through the years.

Julia and I did the normal things such as puppy class and attending basic obedience training. She enjoyed walks in the park, hiking in the foothills by our house, and playing with tennis balls and Frisbees. One of our favorite places to go was the beach up on the Central Coast of California.

Julia loved nosework.  She started nosework training in Altadena, California at the age of 8 months old in 2010. She obtained her ORT Title at the age of 1 year and 4 months. Julia is the 31st Golden Retriever in the country to receive her NACSW NW1 Title in 2011 and the 10th Golden Retriever in the country to receive her NACSW NW2 Title in 2012. After that, life events happened to put trials on hold for a few years.

When Logan (Artistry’s Long Time Coming) passed away in 2017 she continued trialing with NACSW and then started with AKC, & USCSS. She finally captured her NACSW NW3 Elite Title in January 2022.

We met lots of lifelong friends along the way, logged lots of miles, and shared hotels and pizza. I will remember and cherish those times. Julia’s last trial was a NACSW Elite Trial in Tampa, Florida on November 19, 2022. She retired from nosework in December of 2022 with 28 titles. 



Rest in peace, my baby girl. You taught me meaningful life lessons like living each day to the fullest and smiling. It was an honor and privilege to be your companion and I thank you.

When I get sad I’ll think of the good times we had and there are bunches of those. Life without you will never be the same and I’ll miss everything about you. Run free and I hope to see you again someday. Kisses!
