Is there a color chart for Goldens?

I noticed how Goldens can look so different from one another, especially in coloring. I was wondering if there's something that shows all the different color variations a Golden can get? Maybe not since they're so varied, but it would be cool if there was one.

Simba was incredibly blond when we got him, and now he's getting a bit more on the golden brown side. I don't think I've ever seen a breed of dog look so varied. It's fun!

Here's a beautiful picture of how varied the Golden coat can be:



This pictures has been posted on the GRF a number of times when coat color was being discussed.

My dog's breeder told me a dog will be the color of his ears. Sure enough, Dawson's adult coat color ended up being on the red side like his puppy ears.

Within the link that Rhondas provided was this: Zomarick Golden Retrievers rustiques - Coat color with an actual color chart.

They should all be golden - whether that is very dark gold or very light gold.

One thing I'm a brat about with Bertie is when people come up and talk about his coloring, I will show them Bertie's ears and the coloring around his shoulders and on his nose. I can pretty much show them how Bertie is going to be a touch darker than Jacks when he grows up.

I think most goldens seem to darken 2 shades or so between puppyhood and adulthood (3-4 years old).
