Honstly Kase,

I know nothing about Goldens, but I like the second ones structure better.
The first dog seemed VERY long in the body and high in the rear, where as the second one has better angulation in the back end and is more proportioned.
BUT.. i'm also looking at them from a "Belgian owner" point of view lmao

I do like the colour of the first better though.
The first dog does have a nicer head IMO though.

I liked the second better, too. I wasn't too worried about the color though, so keep that in mind.
It's a good question... I very often see Golden's with "mastiffy" heads.
Keep us posted

I'm back !!! I definately like #1 better.... looks just like Bubba's Dad ( AKC best of breed ) and Bubba at a young age. EliN loved our 1st Golden, Rufus, and her Eli ... both dark. No, Kase, I don't think the snout is too short. Females do tend to have a shorter nose and I love her head !! I've always called Chip my " girly dog " ...really looks more " fem-in-nine " I've got pictures of Champions going back 60 years. My 1st Golden was of " Golden Rip " line.... Rip was dark ( Point was lighter ) Rip was the first golden in the 40s in the halls of fame... Show/field and tracking. I've stated before, I was not into showing , but into breed temperment and health issues. With a good breeder who understands, you'll be fine !!!!

Summer... check again. The 2nd dog's head does not match up to the body.... also the 1st face is more " true Golden " ....it has to do with the look and the eye.

Glad we agree !!! I'm really not into " breed standards " today.... It's changed so in the ring !! I really hate it when the breeding changes when the Judges favor one type over another. I remember one of our specialty shows ( conformation )when a darker ( TRUE Golden ) won over the " white " ones.... the gallery exploded with applause. Our Indiana specialty show runs for 3 days.... ( spring ). Tracking in the fall. The difference between Confirmation, Obedience and Field work is amazing !!

Thanks bubbatd, I don't want a 'white' one. As far as I'm concerned a Golden should be golden, there are soooooo many breeders who seem to be breeding the white ones. I never even noticed it before.

Put the first dog's head on the second dog's body and you'd have my ideal Golden.

Such a gorgeous breed. A close friend of ours recently got a new Golden puppy, I'll have to post pictures of her soon.
