So today a lady asked me what is an English cream Golden, and I basically told her that they are all Golden Retrievers just that in general the English lines can be lighter in color and bigger boned than the American lines. And just like with any other breed, some people use wording as marketing strategies so do your homework especially if they are using the word "rare". I'm not an expert by any means and I want to make sure I have the simplest factual way to answer this question. Is this good?

My Jamie is only 8 months old so is still very light, his Mum was the purest white Id ever seen in a Golden&his Dad was a 'regular' golden colour - not so light,not so dark. We arent really sure how Jamie will turn out colour-wise but that is of no consequence to us as we love him very much&he is a fantastic family pet. I find it very upsetting when people bitch about each others animals especially on this wonderful forum as its been a source of great advice&pleasure over the past few months. I have to agree Yahoo Answers people are VERY unpleasant! I innocently asked about 'American line' retriever breeders in the UK&was bombarded with abuse!!!
I chose a GOLDEN RETRIEVER for a family pet because of its fantastic temprement & beautiful face

Not only different in colour but one is a mummy's boy and the other does his own thing. Which one's which?

I'm a proud owner of a "rare cream" English golden. I live in a neighbourhood that the golden is the most popular choice. I have yet to come across someone that hasn't said they have never seen a golden so white, so that just goes to show that it is very rare to see a white/cream golden.

Once again, proud mommy to my white golden boy.

I would venture a guess if mommy is the one taking the picture that the one staring at the camera is the mommy's boy. The one looking away does his own thing.

I agree with Hank. Mommy's boy isn't taking his eyes off of you!

No you are wrong. Bailey (the dark golden) is the rescue and sticks to me like glue, (except when there are bunnies or deer to chase). He's probably looking away cos he heard someone opening a bag of potato chips half a mile down the beach lol.
He came to me at 6 months old and it took me a year to sort him out. Indy is looking at the camera cos he knows how good looking he is! (Poser)
