Dog lovers from around San Luis Obispo County descended upon Laguna Lake Park on a picturesque Saturday afternoon in pursuit of a world record.
They didn’t come away empty handed.
The group SLO County Golden Retrievers set out to break the record for the “largest dog photo shoot” after the 10th annual Goldens in the Park event.
Event organizer Vivian Krug-Cotton said 247 dogs of all breeds appeared in the photo — shattering the previous record of 108.
SLO County Golden Retrievers has been hosting Goldens at the Park since its founding in 2008. Since then, the organization has evolved into an incorporated nonprofit that offers assistance to Golden Retrievers and other dogs and serves as a resource for owners, potential owners and supporters, according to its website.
The nonprofit has since raised thousands of dollars for the Woods Humane Society, according to the website. They also host an informal meet-up the last Sunday of every month at El Chorro Dog Park.
