Cream Colored Golden Retriever Questions

2 posts in this topic

There is a cream colored golden retriever available. I'm considering buying it...I'm not sure how seriously. The wife of the couple who own it now never owned dogs before, and doesn't like it in the house. I could get it for a song.

My wife likes how mellow it is. I would want to hunt it, but this couple doesn't hunt so it’s had no training yet, although it is just under a year old. Any thoughts? What are the differences between Golden Retrievers and the cream colored counterpart? A friend said they run a little smaller.

Hair color had no bearing what-so-ever on size and or hunting ability. It is just hair color.... no different than black labs vs. yellow labs. If it is around a year old, you are more or less looking at it's full size. Mostly just some filling out to do.

What kind of breeding it came from will make all the difference. Was it from trial or gun dog breedings or jsut pet and/or show lines. You can always take a frozen or live pigeon over to see if it has any desire to chase it or carry it. You will have to work at a slower pace with an older dog to expose it to gun fire and birds etc. But at a year, it is definitley in the doable range if she has the desire to be a hunting dog.

Good Luck!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
