Another knowledgeable Golden person is Chris Brasswell. As the breeder of Stanley she has contributed to the modern gene pool.

I think you miss the point...that dog did go BIS in his time and I really doubt if he could be a finished champion in the US today.Best in show, maybe not. But a finished champion, I think yes.

Really neat photo, Jim! Hope you frame that one!
And Earl, After reading this thread once and doing some extra research, I felt like I might understand your posts better, so went back and read them again. WOW! You really were in the thick of it! Thanks for sharing that history!
Hope Chris is right about you going RED again!
This discussion made me dig out the book "The Complete Golden Retriever" by Gertrude Fischer. Before Barty, there are post war pictures of Dual Ch Stubblesdown Lass & Ftd Ch Musicmaker of Yeo & National Ftd Ch Mazurka Of Wynford and many more. On the cover Ch Finderne Gold Cloud of Kent. - this book makes ya think where we have been and where are we going?
