Just wondering how many of us have color preferences for our golden retrievers. If you had to pick a favorite what would it be? Personally I love them all, but I am definitely a sucker for a deep red/gold coloration. :)

I love the deep red golden look. This is Buddy.

I think the red-golds are the loveliest when you see them outside in the sun. :)

I can't say I've ever gone to a breeder and not looked for the darkest puppy. It's not how I end up making the decisions, but it's there in my brain when I look at them.

The red gold really is a beautiful color. I used to think when I looked at Zeke in the sunlight I could make a fortune if I figured out how to bottle that color and sell it for hair color. His coat lightened with age. Here he is at about 6 or so.

I love the blondes or light golds. That's what I wanted in a puppy, but God had other plans. I have a medium gold Golden. My next puppy will be a light gold for sure!

Well, I love all dogs, and especially all goldens. But if I had to choose a favorite, I'd say light golds. Not cream or white, but a light shade of true gold that shines in the sun. Although I do think the draker red shades are very pretty, too.

I love the reddish look, but we ended up with Chloe the Blonde, so now I guess my favorite are the light ones!

I have had three golden boys, the first two were medium to dark goldens, Toby was light golden.
I loved all my boys, but I am partial to the light goldens.

I like all colors. However my first golden was blonde, and Wyatt is light gold and sparkles in the sunlight. So I evidently prefer the lighter shades. Plus the lighter color blends in with my home décor :D

Tucker was a medium gold leaning towards the red. I just loved how his hair lit up like strands of gold in the sun. I also love the pronounced sugar face as they grow older with the medium/darker colors.

I love the darker red/gold too. Charlie was the darkest in his litter & our first choice.

I've had three red goldens and two lighter goldens. I love red goldens and I love lighter goldens and I love everything in between! :) I'm not being politically correct, but color just doesn't matter anymore to me. It's all about the personality for me! :)

My boy is quite light but is getting darker with age, my rainbow girl was quite red, beautiful in the sun. Not caring too much what the next one is, I'll take anything, but leaning on the lighter side....I don't want to be comparing a new babe to my perfect heart dog!

I love the light golden color, both my Shelby and Paxton were light, hoping our new addition will be light also.

I think all of the colors are beautiful, so I don't really have any huge preferences. Before we got Oscar I don't think I've ever seen really dark/red goldens before. When we picked him out I just said I'd rather if he wasn't really light. I think the next golden we get we may look for a darker one :)

I've had three Goldens all being the lighter blond,,,,Murphy is the lightest. His mom was close to white. I had no idea what his color would be as I went for the clearances then saw the parents pictures. All Goldens are beautiful no matter what the color is!!!
