Hundreds of Golden Retrievers and their owners gathered outside of Golden’s visitor center to celebrate International Golden Retriever Day Sunday. The event was organized by the City of Golden and Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. Organizers had anticipated about 100 dogs would show up for the event. But organizers estimate that more than 1,000 Golden Retrievers gathered in Golden today. This is many more than the unofficial World Record set in Scotland where 361 Golden retrievers gathered to mark 150 years of the breed.
