I've gotten to see her run in person as well as a lot of her students (who are mostly goldens too). They are freaking incredible to watch. All of them.

See, I'd pick Golden hair over Lab hair though. The little prickly small hairs that get everywhere drive me nuts. I'd rather have clumps lol.

I probably won't be springing for a Golden any time soon though. Just not a good time. Ideally, the biggest dog I should go is 35lbs max. And I admit, I've gotten really spoiled with my 16lb non shedding dog - I'm not even sure I remember what it's like to deal with dog hair (until I dogsit and have to clean my car out and then remember how much I don't want to deal with hair again!) lol

But I think a Golden is back on my 'someday' list for sure.

Goldens will always be one of my favorite dog breeds. Whenever I meet one, I fall right back in love. They're just so stinkin' good!

Well I didn't have Golden fever until this thread... it appears to be contagious! My cousin had a golden when I was growing up and she was really sweet and smart. Maybe a Golden is in the cards after all.

I used to not really care for Goldens, bit I've met some freaking awesome Golden puppies lately. And some gorgeous adults. Which has made me look at a local breder with a bit more interest.

My cousins had a Golden when I was growing up, and that dog was awesome - she was the reason that I will adopt a senior Golden someday.
This is exactly how I feel! There is nothing sweeter than an older golden and I fully intend to adopt one at some point.

I was never really huge on goldens, but ohmygosh I LOVE one of the goldens at my work. She's awesome, and I always get super happy when I see that she's coming into daycare on a given day.

Plus, they really are the cutest puppies (these are pics I took of my mum's boyfriend's golden back in the day).
