I've been a member here for ages, but I keep forgetting.:p:

My name's Jess, I live in the deepest darkest depths of Devon in England. I've had many breeds of dogs over the years, but my most recent addition has been a rescued Golden Retriever. I've had Border Collies for most of my life, to work, and I'd always loved the look of a GR working, so had always wanted one.

I got her a year and a bit ago, after a family decided to hand her and a labrador over to rescue as they weren't getting along with the new lab puppy.:confused:

Well, their loss is my gain, because Teak is everything I could have hoped for in a GR!

I do competition obedience, and at Teak's first competition she won straight out of a class of 42 dogs. I have traced her breeder, and she's a great lady. Teak is a working bred Golden Retriever and so is unusual looking in this country due to being finer, darker and slightly smaller than your average British GR.

Enough of my rambling, here's a couple of photos. The red BC is my beloved Chili. They're good pals!





A photo from after she won her first obedience class.











Here's one of Chili, she's my special little poser!:p:



I've been on many forums, but never written an intro post, hope this is ok and I haven't posted too many photos!

Welcome to the forum. Your Teak (I was going to use that name one day) is gorgeous. Great pictures of him having a blast. You will never be told you post too many pictures on this forum!:p::p:

Welcome,
Teak is beautiful and sounds very talented too. That family doesnt know what they are missing. I love your Chili and she looks like she is a clown and keeps you laughing. You can never post to many pictures here or talk to much and you might even get hooked like alot of us.

Good job! Teak appears pleased as well.

Both of your babies are great looking! Teak looks like she's about to take off when those ears go up. I bet they have the best time together.

Good looking family!

Welcome to the Forum--

keep in mind that "posting too many photos" is more the norm rather than the exception around here! :) And we LOVE that!

Wonderful photos of your good-looking pups. It is so unusual to see a golden in the UK with Teak's build and color....you must get loads of comments on her at the shows.

I do get a lot of comments. I've also had some funny unprompted breed guesses, one person thought she was a red setter, and another asked if she was a long haired labrador.... :no: Everyone is amazed when I say she's a golden retriever.

Thanks guys, you seem like a lovely bunch. :D
