Well, book me a trip to Scotland, because the greatest spectacle on Earth lives in the land of William Wallace.

I’m speaking of course about the Guisachan Gathering, a festival of all things Golden Retriever!

Yes, you heard that right, a Golden Retriever festival.  And yes, this might be the greatest festival in the world.  And yes, I am going some day.

Goldens and their owners from around the world travel to the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland, appropriately held at the ancestral home of the breed.  The festival began in 2006 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the organization.  Last July, 222 dogs attended the event.

Is there anything better than this?  It’s literally a sea of fluffy, happy, extremely nice and cuddly pups!

Golden 3

There is also a dog show, but let’s face it, they’re all winners.

And this is Scotland, so as Kevin Bacon would say, “Let’s Dance!”

This festival is something that every Golden Retriever or dog enthusiast should experience!  A celebration of all that is Golden.  Is there anything more beautiful?
