Dogs from San Jose
 

from: http://www.thegoldenretrieverclub.co.uk/histgrc.htm
"When the breed standard had first been drawn up by the GRC in 1911, cream had been excluded as a permissible colour, and in the 1920's light-coloured dogs were not popular, the favoured colour being sometimes very red and dark indeed. But the lighter colour gained greatly in popularity in the early 30's and in 1936 the Standard was altered to read 'Any shade of gold or cream, but neither red or mahogany' as it was realised that a mistake had been made in not allowing the original colour."

    My name is Jene and my companions own me. With a varied background; I have been involved with their breed not long enough, but I'm here to stay. That is because I consider myself an advocate for these breeds of dogs. I am an advocate for common sense dog training and not the latest fad that appears on different breeding plans. I will improve my breed the way I know and through the ways I have learned. I can't stand anyone with a known-it-all attitude who believes that they are the pinnacle of the breeds they own and look down their collective noses at the rest of the dog world. I may have to acknowledge the importance of pedigrees but the decision to breed a dog extends beyond their bloodlines. I am not one of those self-gratifying-band-wagons of  "I'm a responsible breeder”, however, I'm also always willing to share my experiences - in the hopes that I may be of any help to others & avoid some of the mistakes I made along the way.
