Buck was so red I was asked a number of times if he was an Irirsh Setter. Hving owned 2 Irirsh, I could not see it myself. Also he was 95 pounds of muscle. his full brother (earlier litter) was the same shade of red as Buck but only 67 ounds--he took after the petite mother, Buck after the husky dad. Scooter was a triffice duck dog and being smaller was great for being in the blind.
Hunter (my avatar) and KayCee were littermates. We were going to just get the male, but fell in love with her adnended up buying them both. Hunter was tall, long and lean at 72 pounds, a a lighter color. We use to call him the long lean playing machine. He had a large boxy head and "treetrunk legs" and hugefeet. Kaycee was 66 pounds, not as tall, shorter body, smaller head and beautiful small feet. She was a shade darker than Hunter.
Honey, well she is our adopted mix. most do take her for full golden, but she isn't and the vet and I think there is a drop or two of sight hound in her. She is a beautifl light blond, not whe cream, but light blond. We had3 full goldens, Buck, Hunte and KayCee went we adopted her, and not being full godne has never matter to us. We got her Dec. 7, 2002 and she is now between 10 1/2 and 11, and is our only remaining dog.
I am certainly glad that being pure or not doesn't matter becaue that does make them love you any more or any less. Congrats on that beuatiful boy of yours.
