Hi

My name is Eileen and I have an almost 2 yr old Golden Retriever called Logie. He is our second retriever as sadly we lost our first one in July. Lora was only 3.5 years old but she had so many health problems, i.e. a liver shunt and heart problems. She was a gorgeous girl though and so sweet natured and that's why we wanted another one. Logie is a dark golden working type retriever but Lora was lighter coloured and a mix of working and show breeeding. We also have a yellow labrador called Ben.

Had a quick look round this site and have been really impressed as there seems to be nothing golden retrieve specific in the UK.

I've attached a photo of Logie and Lora taken earlier this summer.

Thanks for your welcomes.

It was really sad to lose Lora and we all miss her as she had the most perfect nature. However, she had suffered so much in her short life and was so brave. Our vet warned us her life would be short and when we asked her how we would we know when enough was enough she told us we would just know.

I took her to the vet on the morning of the 28th July and although I went in hoping they could help her, deep down I knew she had had enough. We will never forget her and as a family we will always be grateful to her for showing us what a lovely breed the Golden Retriever is.

I've hopefully attached another photo of her which I think shows what a gentle girl she was.



Thanks again for your welcomes and look forward to reading more posts and seeing more photos. I notice there a lot of dark goldens on here which is nice to see as it seems to be mainly the blond show type ones that we see. Lora was a blond girl but her mother was dark golden and was related to Logie though their great grandparents.

Hi Weedrea

I live near Oban so on the same side as you. My mother's mother came from Harris and I still have some relations out there and in Lewis.

Hoping to visit Harris next year as I love it out there.
