It’s a dog lover’s dream come true.
Golden Retrievers from all over the world met up at the Guisachan Estate in Tomich, Scotland this week to celebrate the 150th anniversary of their breed’s birth.
A whopping total of 361 golden doggos attended the gathering, which was orchestrated by the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland.
According to the organization, the meeting welcomed more retrievers than ever before, saying that only 188 canines attended the 2006 gathering.
Dudley Majoribanks, also known as Lord Tweedmouth, bred the first litter of Golden Retrievers on July 19th, 1868.
The first Golden Retriever puppies were born as a result of Tweedmouth crossing a wavy-coated retriever with a tweed water spaniel.
The Scottish lord had reportedly been trying to breed a dog that could swim longer distances to retrieve water foul.
Ashleigh Baird, one of the gathering’s attendees, told LADBible: “It was a fantastic day, lovely to see all the Goldens playing and having fun together.”
“We were so surprised that people had travelled from all over the world to be there, but that made it all the more special,” she added. “We tried to pet and cuddle all 361 goldens and it was heaven.”
