Golden Wisdom

Golden Retrievers are intelligent, friendly, devoted, and great family pets. They share Whitman’s wise words in this version of Golden Wisdom

Golden Wisdom: I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contained. Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things.

Walt Whitman

The Golden Retriever is a Scottish breed of retriever dog of medium size. It is characterised by a gentle and affectionate nature and a striking golden coat. It is commonly kept as a pet and is among the most frequently registered breeds in several Western countries. It is a frequent competitor in dog shows and obedience trials; it is also used as a gundog, and may be trained for use as a guide dog.

The breed was created by Sir Didley Marjoribanks at his Scottish estate Guisachan in the late nineteenth century. He cross-bred Flat-coated rectrievers with Tweed Water Spaniels, with some further infusions of Red Setter, Labrador Retriever and Bloodhound. The breed was recognised by the Kennel Club in 1913, and during the interwar period spread to many parts of the world. source: Wikipedia
