A Celebration of Goldens

2013 Guisachan Gathering

222 Golden retrievers gathered together for the The Guisachan Gathering in the Scottish Highlands. This celebration of everything golden took place over three days to honor the birthplace of this wonderful breed. The first  golden was bred in 1868 by pairing a yellow wavy-coated retriever with a now-extinct, Tweed spaniel. They produced four puppies, but it took another 64 years before golden retrievers were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club.
