It's a girl, Beaumaris Genevieve good luck finding pictures as Wendy doesn't have a website anymore. But I always enjoyed Scooter's expression!

For me Westley Victoria epitomizes what a bitches head should be.

CH Goldenz Ducat De Donde Viene

I know I am butchering this dog's name but Nancy Talbott owned him and he had the most gorgeous headstudy. Epitomized the breed.

He was I believe a grandson of her CH Belgold Doxology who also had a beautiful head.

CH Malagold Coriander, along with being a stunning creature -- also a very moderate correct headpiece as has passed down through his descendants.

I love the Tory sons - more Malagold descendants - Beast & Beau -- I think Fisher looks very much like Beau -- and Beast's son Coach with a delish headpiece.

In turn I thought Coach looked much more like Yogi in real life than any photo I had seen.

And of course I am very partial to my own dog!

Okay, Dallas was not a grandson of Doxology but close enough.
Now for bitches -- I love the headstudy of CH Glengowan's Sugar and Spice
CH Sandpiper's Tickled Pink (she is a real package overall)
Skull structure on Treasure of course is perfect -- but I would give her a bit more of a fleshy expression -- now her brother Jack, beautiful headpiece! I am partial to boys :)

Yogi's is also the head I think of as a benchmark in terms of the head I'd want to see every single day. In person too, he is just so quinessentially golden and expressive- what a kind, wise face. I agree about Devin, who Niome mentioned.

For girls, I happen to love Pippa:http://www.k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=257377
I might be biased because of Fenway, but I love the head of Phyler- Sunkota's Phorgone Conclusion( maybe a bit long in ear, but overall there's something ideal about his head to me).http://www.k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=28762

Also, Violet's head& face:http://www.ripleygoldens.com/Violet%20Page.htm.

I like as close to the standard limit as possible for good backskull and a defined stop with a short square muzzle. I think the heads I love best might not really embody the standard the best- maybe too triangley in the eye and a tiny bit too heavy in flews. After studying the "blue book" for way too many hours, I conlude that I might like a head that is a teeny bit overdone, so I am working on improving my eye. I admit it.

I was raised with two Twin- Beau- D dogs, and that whole style is deeply ingrained.

Faera's Starlight/Thunder lines have heads I love.

There's something about Phlyer that just pulls at my heart when I see his pictures. Sometimes I wonder if I made a mistake by not going with the Phlyer X Sox litter. I trust Jackie's judgement on steering me away from that litter. But I looked at Fenway's pictures last night and it made me a little sad that I wasn't getting one of those.

But don't get me wrong, I still love my little Flip-Flop

I'd like to throw out a lesser known dog (and an oldie but goodie): Ch Birnam Wood's Posi-Traction ("Trac").

http://www.sherwoodgoldens.com/images/tracmemorial/slideshow.html

And I've always loved my girls head. Birnam Wood's Waiting to Exhale ("Hayley"). Sorry I don't have any digital photos of her when she was a young girl. She's going on 13.5 yo now, but her head held together pretty well.

In the first picture is Hayley with Toby (Birnam Wood's Wink N' A Smile - Gibson x Sammy) in late 2009. In the second picture, same 2 dogs, but 1 year prior.

Those Birnam Woods goldies are radiant & beautiful.

One more thing I like about Phyler- you could never, ever mistake him for any other dog. There is nothing generic or cookie cutter about his his head.
