361 golden retrievers gather in Scottish village to mark dog breed's 150th anniversary, Europe News & Top Stories

Hundreds of golden retrievers gathered in a Scottish village last Thursday (July 19) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of one of the world's favourite dog breeds.

A total of 361 golden retrievers and their owners met at the Guisachan Estate in Tomich, Scotland, where the first ever litter was born in 1868.

The event was organised by the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland, which said that the mass gathering was its biggest one yet.

"We've gone up from 188 golden retrievers 10 years ago at the 2006 gathering to 222 in 2016 and now, today we got 361," she said.

The original pups were born after estate landowner Dudley Majoribanks crossed a wavy-coated retriever called Nous with Belle, a tweed water spaniel.
