I like those auburny/reddish ones. I might have one someday *shrugs* They aren't my preferred giant size and I don't know about their protective abilities. But they are nice looking and have very pleasant personalities =)

After working at a pet hotel for years, I will never have any desire to get a Golden! I used to be obsessed with them as a little kid... but I feel like the Golden of those years is very different than the BYB mess of today. :/ It's sad how much working in the dog industry can RUIN breeds for you. But it can also make you love breeds you never thought you would.

He's lovely. I think Goldens are a wonderful breed. (when bred right) When I got my Lab, it was between a Lab and a Golden. I opted for the Lab, only because of the non-tangly fur...less grooming. Because I love both breeds. So, are you going to spring for a Golden?

The cutest elderly golden walks around my neighborhood with the biggest grin on his face. Do want.

I'm the same way with BCs. I've wanted one forever. I had one as a kid and we weren't the right home for a bc at the time so we rehomed him. I've always hated that because if I knew then what I know now, I could've been a good owner to him. He was my baby. But recently I've been "over" them for now, since I'm 99.9% sure that my next dog will be a Whippet. But every time I see pictures online or see pictures of Chewy (my bc) I just MELT. They are such cool dogs. So smart and intune with their owners. And beautiful. But I have to stick to my guns. Whippet next, bc someday. Lol! (I also am DROOLING over Yarrow the ANCD. Omg.)
Don't fear tomorrow.

THIS especially (yes, I did stalk Linds' Flickr photostream ).

Thought I was the only one who had serious golden wants from this dog. I keep going back and forth with this breed and it keeps going to "maybe someday."

No kidding. They are beautiful but I prefer to admire them in pictures as opposed to on my couch.
