Thumbs down It sure would be nice

To open the forum and actually see a picture of a GOLDEN RETRIEVER instead of a yellow lab, a yorkie, or a whatever the other one is.
Just sayin'.
Was nice when this forum featured Goldens back in the day.

Yup. We went through this when it first changed. It's a Lab x Golden. There's a thread about it somewhere that I am too lazy to try to find. Lots of great points made about how if people are trying to educate others about Goldens and standard, etc. the board should actually feature Golden Retrievers in the photos. No change made.

The dog belongs to the site's administrator or someone else connected to the design or running of the board.

Solution: Switch back to the classic view. All Goldens on the banner. (And much easier on the eyes overall!)

Yes the classic view has goldens in the banner, but the bi-monthly large advertisement is currently showing a yorkie. Before that a lab with a little girl and before that a shih tsu. I think these ads are from one of the site's sponsors.

The story with the big picture of the lab and little girl is about the top ten breeds for therapy dogs. It doesn't include Goldens in the list but does include German Shepherds and Rottweilers, along with some other odd choices. Seems misinformed and why would they put it on this site?

Whatever story they post in the Homepage Forum that picture carries over onto the main entry page. I agree that if they could instead post pictures of Golden Retrievers with the articles they are posting it would have a better appeal.

Things change in life as greed buys out the mom and pop stores.

The last of any intellectual discussions whatsoever I have read here IMO were in the hunt and field section. The days of stories we wrote about our dogs seem to have been long ago.

I have nothing against other breeds at all but you're right it is a Golden forum. Many people have dogs of other breeds and I like to see them post. I like to think anyone is welcome here.

But a yorkie on the front page is like a meaningless blurb of the day.

This forum has not bounced back and recovered and I suspect it will not. Nothing lasts forever but it is a shame. The discussions on facebook are not the same.
