25 Golden Retrievers who are Snake Charmers (Instagram)

As an active member of the Instagram community, I can’t ignore the trend that is snake charmers. (aka #snakecharmers)

Here’s one of my favorite blogging golden retrievers, TheK9HarperLee, exhibiting the snake charming ritual…(see post:  It’s Official-I’m a Snake Chamrer )

Update: 10 Golden Retrievers “Mutt Muggin”

I first heard about mutt muggin’ from fellow blogger Dr. Jessica Vogelsang and her adorable Brody at Pawcurious. She posted a photo on her facebook page of her golden muggin’ and in the caption said “You all should try this, it’s surprisingly entertaining.”

It’s basically a picture of your dog inside of a mug. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a mutt either! Tucker and I gave it a shot…it was definitely entertaining!
Thanks to Beth for sharing this picture of Romy mutt muggin.

Golden Retriever of the Month – Troy!

This is Troy from Southern California. He is a 9 year old golden retriever that was found on Craigslist at the age of 6. The ad read: “5 year old Golden Retriever needs a home.. please call.” It had no photo, and no reason why. Troy went to his “furever home” that night with his new owner.

Troy’s favorite treats are anything sweet potato or peanut butter! His human says “His favorite thing in the world to do is swim. I have to force him to stop or he would literally go for hours. He doesn’t even need anything to chase he just wants to swim, but his favorite thing to retrieve is definitely a stick

troystick

Like most goldens, Troy likes to bring you things when you come home, or to company when they arrive – “One of Troy’s quirks I guess would be he HAS to put something in his mouth when I get home, or when someone comes over. His usual choice is the remote control that sits on the coffee table. If that’s not there he goes for a shoe, a water bottle, a dish towel, or anything he can find that isn’t an actual dog bone or toy.” (Tucker is the same way, thankfully he hasn’t tried it with the remote yet, its usually shoes or bones!)

I discovered Troy through Instagram, and wanted to share a few photos of him at the permission of his owner. You can follow Troy on Instagram at @janellekayli and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/nelle4

Here’s some pictures of Troy doing what he loves best, amazing Instagram photos I might add…

Unfortunately, “Troy was diagnosed with lymphoma Aug 2013. He went into remission after 6 chemo treatments. He still has 3 months left of chemo but so far so good. He’s had only positive reactions!” You can follow his updates or donate to his treatments here: http://www.gofundme.com/TTreatments

Do You Have A Nickname For Your Golden Retriever?

I have several nicknames for Tucker.  “Little Guy” “Stinky old Guy”, “Sweet Face”, “Sir Poops Alot” ..the list goes on and on.  This is just a silly, fun post.  I am curious to know what you call you golden(s)  Please share in the comments or #goldenretrievernicknames on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.  For even more fun, share a picture that captures the “nickname”

Thanks to @colleenconway of Instagram for allowing me to share this photo of her “schmoozle” the late “Summer”

Did Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo Get A New Golden Retriever Puppy?

I have to admit I was kinda bummed when I reported that Maroon 5 front man and judge on The Voice Adam Levine got a “golden doodle” for his birthday back in June. After saying goodbye to his previous golden, Frankie Girl, I assumed he may eventually take in another golden into his life (this purely based on personal experience that once you own a golden, nothing compares).

Today my Google searches contained a lot of “Adam Levine new dog Christo” searches.

I did a little investigating and the only thing I could come up with so far were two photos posted on Adam’s fiance Bahatii Prinsloo ‘s Instagram page of a cute little golden retriever puppy. (possibly named “Christo”)

STOP IT.

Actor Desmond Tan Suffers Bite From Golden Retriever

In Singapore, MediaCorp actor Desmond Tan stopped by a friend’s place on New Years Eve and ended up spending the night in the emergency room. In a telephone interview with XINMSN Tan says:

“I was stroking my friend’s Golden Retriever when it suddenly dashed into my face and attacked my nose.”

Desmond Tan/xinmsn.com
Desmond Tan/xinmsn.com

The next day, Desmond tweeted:

Back in October, Tan posted this tweet, with an Instagram picture of him and a golden retriever.  I wonder if it’s the same one…?

So apparently the dog is shy.  Goldens are known to have excellent bite inhibition, and this probably could have been a lot worse.  Hopefully it doesn’t leave a scar!  (and the dog’s issues can be resolved!)  The actor is traveling to Japan in the near future to film a commercial, and will conceal his injury with makeup.

For the full article from xinmsn.com click here.

It sounds like Desmond is a dog lover.  He has an English Cocker Spaniel named Hoshi who has him wrapped around his finger!
