Birthday parties are great. I love them. You love them. We all love them. But have you ever been to a party that breaks the world record for the number of golden retrievers in one spot?
Well, that's exactly what happened in July when 361 golden retrievers and their owners got together to celebrate breed's 150th anniversary at the Guisachan Estate in Tomich, Scotland, where the first litter was born in 1868.
The birthday party was organized by the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland, who has been putting on an annual celebration of the famous breed for decades now.
Club chairman Doreen McGuan described this year's celebration as a "roaring success" when discussing the party with the British publication Metro.
"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. "It's appropriate we've beaten our record on the big anniversary."
And the record-breaking celebration was one to remember judging by the reactions of those in attendance.
But those in attendance weren't the only ones in on the fun. With pictures and videos from the event spreading all over social media in the days following, even those from not privy to the party took a moment from their days to celebrate the good boys of Scotland.
And let's be honest for a moment... a dog birthday party with a record-breaking turnout is exactly what we need in these crazy times.
