900 Golden retrievers invade Golden, Colorado

National News

GOLDEN, CO (CNN) – A group of more than 900 golden retrievers gathered in Golden, Colorado for a dog-gone good time.

This wasn’t a paw-ty for just any kind of four-legged furry friend, but a gathering of Golden Retrieved right in the middle of Golden.

“Look at all this Golden love! This is awesome.”

Stephanie Palko brought her golden, Parker all the way to Golden for the first ever “Goldens in Golden” gale of sorts.

“He’s very excited. He loves outings,” she said.

So do the rest of these goldens.

Some are young, others old, and all are patriotic to their people and a friend to those who share the same shade of fur.

“A lot of great goldens that love other goldens and we don’t worry about them around people because they love everybody.”

So, you really don’t have to worry about any of these goldens barking up the wrong tree. But you do have to worry about the shedding and fur a flying.

“I got dog hair blowing in my eye.”

Hannah Button with visit golden doesn’t think that’s too ‘ruff’ because goldens in golden is her golden idea.

She helped procure the Puppachinos. And the other golden gear, and fetched Kevin Shipley with Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies.

“Goldens are a perfect Colorado dog,” said Button. “I think every new car goes out with a golden retriever in the back seat.”

And there’s no better way, or place, or day to celebrate them than on National Golden Retriever Day when every one of these dogs really has its day.

“Isn’t this fun?! Oh gosh, it’s heaven.”

So on this warm winter day, that you could say is golden, a grand total of: “It says 911 so that’s as many as we counted.”

That’s right! That’s at least 911 cold, wet noses and happy tails wagging down the street.

And these dogs aren’t just good, they’re golden.
