FORGET 101 Dalmatians - when it comes to a gathering of adorable pets nothing beats a beach full of Golden Retrievers.

Inspired by a unique club in Scotland, the birthplace of the Golden Retriever, Chi Chi Rautenbach from Jeffreys Bay initiated a special get-together for owners of this breed. The first bi-annual get-together took place at Lower Point on April 12.

“There are so many owners of Golden Retrievers in Jeffreys Bay and I hope to have at least two get-togethers a year where owners and dogs can meet,” says Rautenbach who owns two Golden Retrievers.

“It would be absolutely amazing if we can improve on the record-breaking number of 222 Golden Retrievers gathering at Guisachan House in Tomich, Invernessshire during the Highland gathering of the gentle canines in 2013.”

The get-togethers will take place in the form of a bring-and-braai.

For more information, contact Chi Chi Rautenbach at 074 897 0254 or Heidi Smith at 082 899 5102
