Hundreds of Golden Retrievers attend a very special b’day party!


361 golden retrievers (dogs) met at an estate in Scotland to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of their breed!  It was held at Lord Tweedmouth’s former estate, where the first golden retriever litter was born in 1868.

Who was Lord Tweedmouth?

Lord Tweedmouth was a nobleman who enjoyed hunting. He desired a hunting dog – someone to accompany him on hunts through the marshy wetlands and rocky hills in Scotland. What would the dog do? The main job of the animal would be to retrieve or collect wildfowl that had been shot.

So he decided to breed a pup.  He mated a wavy-coated yellow retriever named ‘Nous’ with a rugged tweed water spaniel named ‘Belle.’ As the name suggests, retrievers are good with retrieving on land and water spaniels have the intelligence and skills to retrieve under all sorts of seacoast conditions.

The result was a litter of four female yellow golden retrievers – Ada, Primrose, Crocus and Cowslip.
