"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis
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.

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?
