Red or Blonde golden?

Ok, so I've always heard that the American bred goldens are more yellow/blonde while the European one's are more red.

Which one do you prefer red or blonde? Also, is this true?

Hmmmm well I think American version of Goldens tend to have more red ones then the European versions.

I like them both and all. Used to be I was attracted to that rare...or harder to find....Creme...cream....ummmm very light color.

But now I've gotten to love the rich lusterous deeper tones. They all are good.

I like the old fashioned yellow/blonde (golden!) color that I associated with the goldens I knew when I was young.

Well, as you can see from my siggy, I've got one of each. But, I think you've got it backwards...

I love them all! My puppy's mother is very dark red (field golden) and his father is a very light cream color, so he has a nice combination.
