    I'll always have a soft spot for Goldens, as my very first dog Daisy was one. But I thought I was over them. Maybe not. lol.

    Every time I see a young, crazy Golden that's all over the place I'm pretty sure that I'm over them. And then every time I see a sweet senior Golden...I want one again.

    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.

    And not the least bit ashamed :lol-sign:

    First Golden Retriever that came to my mind. True story.

    And let's face it, it was either going to be me stalking your Photostream, or posting the following

    "Yes, I have Golden want, too. Especially that one Golden Retriever that Linds met at the dog park that one time - you know, the dog that looked stunning and athletic and everything a sporting dog should be. I can't remember the dog's name, but it was a really good looking dog. Really. The dog looked like a Golden Retriever and everything!

    Oh, and I think the owner had an Aussie, too. Yeah."

    You pick :p

    I really want a golden someday. When I was working at the grooming shop, despite the annoying amount of brushing and stuff, I always loved my golden clients. I had one when I was a baby, she died when I was about 6 or 7, I don't really remember her that well, just barely. But, I do know that they are great dogs and I really do want one someday.

    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.)

    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. :p
