What is paradise? Authors and poets and playwrights of old have tried to capture the perfect image of paradise, yet all have left something to be desired. If only any of them had conceived of a giant field full of Golden Retrievers, they may have come close to the paradise that the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland created at Guisachan Estate.
What a bunch of good doggos!
361 golden retrievers (and their owners) got together in Scotland earlier this month, breaking a world record for the biggest gathering of the breed. https://t.co/DxUdrGba76

To celebrate the anniversary of the first Golden Retriever being bred in 1868 by Lord Tweedmouth, over 361 total Retrievers and their owners showed up to celebrate their own conception by being very, very good boys and girls, according to Today.

“It’s such a popular breed,” Doreen McGugan, chair of the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland, told Today. “And it was the 150th anniversary, which is very special.”

Well I don't know about everyone else but I had a wild Saturday night. I drank too much pineapple and lemon kombucha and cried at videos of the Golden Retriever gathering in Scotland.

This is the largest ever gathering of the breed, breaking a world record. Guinness has yet to comment on whether or not they will feature the pups in their book, but we might start a Change.org petition to ensure that comes to pass.
Is…is this what heaven is?
