How Long Do Your Golden Retriever’s Stuffed Toys Last?

I love seeing pictures of golden retrievers snuggled up with their “stuffies” or just carrying them around in their mouths. Sometimes they have a whole toy box of these things.

This is not the case with Tucker. I think the longest one of those things has lasted in our house was maybe a week.

Do you know of any “indestructable stuffies? Maybe if he had a whole bunch, he wouldn’t destroy them. We only buy one at a time.

Hopefully when Tucker is a bit older he will go easy on the stuffies, but for now, its fun to watch him destroy his “prey” like the stuffed mallard. (RIP mallard)

Ok, here is 28 seconds of sheer bliss from photographer Candice Sedighan.  Her 11 year old golden retriever Champ is the star of many of her famous photographs.  Here you can see Champ laying in the grass with a bunch of chicks.

This year, they want to break the Guinness World Record for most dogs being brushed at one time.  All breeds are welcome.  (Imagine the fur ball!)   Funds raised go to this amazing rescue organization.  Click here to see their website for details.

I am only two hours away, and I really hope to bring Tucker!

If you would be interested in attending, they would love it if you give them a “heads up” by emailing them at picnic@golden-rescue.net

and don’t forget to bring your brush!  BYOB!

Here’s a video from last years picnic.

It’s National Puppy Day – Here are some Golden Retriever Puppies!

Today is National Puppy Day!  It was founded by Colleen Paige in 2006.  I believe it is now International Puppy Day, due to the fact that social media makes this world a much smaller place.  I am celebrating from Canada.

National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it’s a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills, as well as further our mission for a nation of puppy-free pet stores.” – NationalPuppyDay.com

Here are 10 photos of golden retriever puppies from some of my Instagram friends.

A passer by was walking in the area and heard screams. Tim Stelzel tells WSAW News:

They jumped 10 feet off thinking it was snow, and plunged through and went immediately under the ice and were swept downstream.”

Stelzel claims the dogs’ owners, a couple, “couldn’t be consoled”  Rescue crews were not contacted as the current swept the dogs away under the ice so quickly.

A reminder to keep your dogs on a leash near water this time of year.  So sad.
