Golden Retrievers Research First Century in the Show Ring
|There are a great many books written by experts on the subject of animal husbandry. This book was envisaged as a companion to those books with the purpose of presenting a wider body of knowledge on the Golden Retriever and its history.
The first aim was to produce a document on the development of the Golden Retriever, from the original dog purchased by Lord Tweedmouth in Brighton, England to what can be seen in the show ring around the world today. The second aim was to raise funds to assist with research into inherited diseases of the Golden Retriever.
Written by Marilynn Morphet this book is for any Golden Retriever enthusiast.
