The Daily Golden usually has a Golden Retriever of the Month. This month, I have selected two. Spencer, 4 and his neice Penny, 1, live together with their cat Shelby in Holliston, Massachusetts. Their day often includes a trip to their “human’s” office, a photography studio, where they are often forced into hard labor, posing for photographs…
While Spencer is very calm and docile, Penny is quite the opposite, she is so excitable but she tries so hard to contain herself. She often sits and almost vibrates.
I have always admired the beautiful photos on Spencer and Penny’s Facebook page, but the night I saw the video of them sitting on the stairs waving goodnight, I fell in love with these beautiful goldens!
Their owner says “They both love to carry things and on 90% of their walks they are carrying a frisbee, stick or ball. They both retrieve the mail, carry my lunch into the studio, and bags of pastries from the coffee shop while I carry the coffees. All I have to say is pick it up and point. Spencer knows his left from his right. Penny brings things to the recycle bin and Spencer is trained to get his leash. Both carry an umbrella on our walk if there is chance of rain (unopened of course) They love every treat but carrots please them and me! They both get to clean the yogurt cup every morning as morning ritual and treat.”
A cute video of Spencer getting the mail….
Spencer and Penny’s owner says “Around lunch time every day Spencer grabs his frisbee and brings it to me and holds it in his mouth until I take him out to play. Penny likes a big bouncy ball and although she does retrieve it, she prefers to run around with it in her mouth.”
” Penny loves every creature equally from humans to frogs. Twice she has brought in a live frog and dropped it in our house much to my wife’s dismay. She is very much in love with her cat friend Shelby. She licks the cats head and cuddles with her constantly and of course an occasional chase that involves a 3 second tour of the entire house. The cat loves it!”
Spencer and Penny are from Massachusetts, so they like to demonstrate their love for Boston in many ways.
First, there was this beautiful photo posted on their Facebook page after the Boston Marathon tragedy..
After speaking with Spencer and Penny’s owner, I discovered that one the viral golden retriever photos I often come across belongs to him, and is a picture of Spencer holding a paper that says “I Will Love You Forever !!”
Here’s the cool part! The Henry Studio, (that’s S & P’s owner) offers mugs, calendars, mouse-pads etc with this print, as well as other beautiful prints of his dogs. Check out their Etsy page AllsGolden
