Is your Golden "curly" or "wavey" coated?

I love all the different types! I have one with perfectly straight, thick hair (except a lot had to be cut down due to severe matting when I rescued her- but it will grow back). I have another with an essentially smooth coat like a jacket, with slightly wavy (barely), nearly white feathering- a beautiful contrast to her darker colored coat. My third has waves and even some curls! He always has- I thought he'd out grow it, but I got him back after two years of being missing and he still has his trademark waves. I love it! It's much easier to see it in person compared to the others.

I want to see all your curly/wavey Goldens. I think they're so cute.

Here is my wavey boy

Yes, they are brothers. We originally went to pick out one puppy. The lady had 2 puppies left. How could we choose? We decided to take both. I am so glad that we did. They have been a lot of fun for us.

I'm not sure if Winchester will end up with curly or just wavy fur. Right now he's got wave just going down his back but I'm sure the rest of his body will catch up. I'm interested to see what kind of coat he ends up with. His mom is a field GR and his dad is from a conformation line. Two totally different coats.

Here's a picture of Winchester's back. You can see the waves/curls.

Murphy had the comb-over look just like that going on his back for awhile too, but now he's back to pretty smooth.

My shepherd (who is a long coat, and will have a coat similar to a Golden at maturity) has that same look right now!

Roxy has a straight coat with waves on her back. Elliot is curly all over.
