361 Golden Retrievers Gathered In Scotland, And The Photos Caused Us A Cuteness Overload

361 golden retrievers have recently met up at Guisachan House, Tomich, Inverness-shire to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the breed by crossing Nous, a Wavy-coated Retriever, with a Tweed Water Spaniel named Bell.

It isn’t easy to bring together so many dogs and make sure they all went back home with the right owner.

The chairman of the Members of the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland (GRCS), Doreen McGugan, said:

“The 150th has been a roaring success. We’ve gone from 188 golden retrievers at the 2006 gathering, 222 in 2016, to 361 today. We’ve beaten our record on the big anniversary.”

The breed was specifically developed to retrieve downed game from both water as well as land. Modern-day fans with big names include Oprah Winfrey as well as actor Andrew Garfield.

Ashleigh Baird was there with her dog Chewbacca and her dog’s pooch best friend, Buddy. She said:

“It was such an amazing day. The event was a world breaker – there were 361 goldens there – as it was a special anniversary.”

“There were indeed people there from all over the world, and all the dogs behaved so well and loved playing with each other. It’s nice for people to see the doggos.”
