Welcome to the forum! I would have to say that both are fantastic dogs. I have always loved goldens since I was a small child and had to have one (actually two) of them as I got older. One thing I realized between the two breeds is my allergies. I can not be around a lab for more than 5 minutes without going into an allergic fit, but goldens on the other hand don't bother my allergies. Just food for thought if you have them.
Good luck in your decision.
