    Puppy

    One of my neighbours recently got a golden retriever puppy. It gets really over exited easily now and I've learnt to make sure we lock the garden gate otherwise he's in our garden and pulling up my Dad's precious cabbages. And we wouldn't want that to happen...

    Herds of Hugs

    We have a 3 year old and a puppy on the way. Before this I had 2 others. If we had the money and the extra room in our bed, we'd have a whole herd of them!

    Have A Dilemma!

    I want a golden retriever or irish setter soooo bad. I still live with my mom and she is allergic to animals except for hypoallergenic ones. I think a golden or setter would help me cause of my health. Is there a dog that is similar or how can my mom cope with the allergens?

    My Golden Retriever Passed Away.... My Life Is Half Broken

    I remember the first day I met you. You were so white, so little… My dad brought you home for the first time. There was a tiny hole in your little box… Me, being 6, started poking you. You were turning round and round as I kept poking… Then you were out of the box… The...

    Peanut

    My sister owned one of the golden retrievers that we had since I had a cat and Janet had her cat. Her name was Peanut and was definitely a trip. Whenever she gets really happy, she smiles. For people who didn’t know her would think that she was pissed off and about to go...

    My Favorites

     I love them! They look so happy all the time! And their color is beautiful, of course. Such optimistic dogs. They make my day. If I didn't live in the city, and if they weren't so much work I'd probably have one myself, but for now I just prefer my kitties ;)

    Aslan And I

    Aslan, my golden retriever is so happy that I am home with him today. I have worked too much lately and he has missed the attention. It is amazing to have someone so excited to spend time with me. He would chase his frisbee or stick or tennis ball until his heart gave out, just...

    Puppies in my childhood to young adult

    I grew up with Golden Retrievers and I miss having them around. They are the best dogs ever! Even though I miss our family dachshund and I want a Husky as well. Since I live in an apartment complex, getting a dog for me would not be a good idea so I’m sticking with my cat...

    Can't Havea Big Dog In A Small Place

    So, all growing up my family has had a lab, or other dog. Now that I've moved into my own apartment I can't have a dog the size of a lab. I didn't really miss not having a dog too much at first, no hair to clean up, no scooping up poop etc. But, now I'm missing a doggy buddy :( I...

    Tricking Aslan

    Aslan, my beautiful but needy golden, has decided in the last few weeks to become a finicky eater.. his blended dog food mix is evidently not up to his culinary standards, so after a few bites, it's a battle between him (nose in air, humorously high in the air) and me, squeezing...
