Unfortunately this dog has been listed (incorrectly) as a mix:

It’s much more likely that he’s purebred, just not of the type one sees at dog shows or on TV.

Compare with this photo of some Noranby goldens from the 1930’s, which is sort of the blog’s thematic photo:

You can still find these dogs in working and performance lines in the breed.

Ricochet is the famous surfing golden retriever.

From ABC News:

Owner Judy Fridono discovered Ricochet had other ways to help.

“I wanted her to make a difference in one life, and she’s touched millions and millions now,” Fridono told ABC News.

Ricochet started boogie boarding at 8 weeks old and is now a pro on the surfboard. Fridono swears she adjusts her balance and stance depending on the disability of the person she is surfing with.

Ricochet is just as valuable on land: She has raised more than $100,000 for different charities on her Facebook page and her videos have gone viral, garnering more than 3 million views.

She is also a finalist for the annual “Hero Dog Award” from the American Humane Association, where she is up against a guide dog and even a military dog, all amazing animals. And while they all might rate a 10, only Ricochet can hang ten.

I’ve written about this dog before– the SURFice dog. 

This is the kind of golden retriever I really like.

This is my gestalt when I hear the words “golden retriever.”
