11 years of breeding to get that color? You don't see it very often. Our first GR was about that color back in the 80s.

I like the extremes when it comes to color. The very light and the very dark red golden.

The very light is closer to the original "yellow" retriever from the 19th century. And the Very dark, red is closer to the Irish Setter mix into the breed.

Thanks everyone! Nice to talk & show goldies to other "enthusiasts"

Well not just color, thats why it has taken years of patience, passion, dedication & Standards !

Health ~ head to toe with everything including skin/ears/teeth/no allergies , Mellow & playful temperament, straight wavy coat, True red, no line/inbreeding, Short snout, BlockHead, soft amber eyes, under 75 pounds, prefer 65 & under, athletic but not lanky ~ Stocky muscular build & having 3+ generations of the same standards, on BOTH parents sides, no early graying or whiting on the face, and MUST give the best sloppy kisses!

So in a nutshell I want only these standards & nothing less Been kind of a hermit, because whenever I get into sites sometimes they become political & "my way" opinionated, I just want to share & meet some great friends of Goldies ! But it feels so warm & cozy here, so looking forward to sharing my love, stories, what useful or useless knowledge I might have

Anyhoo ! Just wanted to find a site to share pics & tell stories of the joy of our forever companions!

Beautiful redheads! I do so love the red goldens...I have one of each, little red spitfire girlie (Saffron) and lighter colored mellow boy (Murphy)!

Mine love the snow too but what we did get before Xmas did not last!

Cheers,
Jenn, Murphy and Sassy Saffron
