Daily Dog Challenge "302. You've Been Tagged"

Our Daily Challenge - Aug 28, 2012 - "Metal"

From the AKC:

"The Golden Retriever originated in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1800s and was used predominantly for hunting. The breed was developed by Lord Tweedmouth, whose goal was to create a superb retriever suited to the Scottish climate, terrain and available game. He crossed his original "Yellow Retriever" with the Tweed Water Spaniel (now extinct) found on his estate. Later integrations of Irish Setter, Bloodhound, and more Tweed Water Spaniel produced the retriever we know today."

The Golden Retriever is shown in the Sporting Group, and was recognized as a breed by the AKC in 1925.

True to his roots, Zachary (above) is a wonderful retriever of thrown balls, and will bring them back for as long you will throw them. His sire is a Champion, with multiple Best in Show and Best in Specialty Shows, as well as being an Outstanding Sire and in the Show Dog Hall of Fame.

And Henry? His parents are Champions as are his Grandparents, and his sire is an Outstanding Sire.

Both dogs come from the same breeder, and their grandmothers were half-sisters.
