First Golden Retriever Bench Champion
I found this photo on Facebook. For those who have stated that today's field Goldens more resemble the original "ideal", this photo is enlightening
This dog looks like he could physically handle today's field testing. Notice the length of leg and rear pasterns. Solid topline, nice neck-to-back transition. Moderate substance. Nice feet. No exaggeration in any feature. I do notice that the depth of chest does not reach down to the elbows, as is stated in our Standard today.
