Saw this image doing a completely unrelated search, but I had to click on it. Beautiful dog. This is what a Golden Retriever is supposed to look like, just like the breed standards say. Like our boy 'Topper.' A broad head and muzzle, and a cobby body with well-boned legs. The perfect color and slightly wavy/curly fur, well-feathered. | The golden retriever, with its intelligence and eager-to-please attitude, is one of the most popular breeds in the United States.
