A coat of autumn colours

Oscar is our working golden retriever. He comes into his own during the autumn.

His coat of fur the smell of fresh frost and the colour of crackling autumn leaves.

A blazing sunset coat of colour that matches the floor of a silent, leafy forest path.

A glowing jewel – a ruby perhaps? – to brighten up the dusk.

  8. He is truly a gorgeous colour. My daughter’s fox-red working Labrador would match him beautifully.

  9. Oscar is lovely. When you describe him as a ‘working dog’ – does he have something he has to do in his doggy day?

    • A working golden is much smaller, more agile and a deeper golden colour than normal golden retrievers. Originally, they are field dogs who retrieved birds from water for their owners.
