Email Dad for more info: idalaska@verizon.net.

And guess what? This year we’ve got a new vehicle for you to hang your head out of, and we’re going retro!

Let’s see, we need some kids to carry the banner at the front of our herd! So bring the ones you usually hang out with.

Call me on the fur phone if you’ve got questions! Since we Goldens don’t have thumbs (who cares?) my Mom and Dad (Karin and Mike) will answer the phone for me. But call 496-0101.

The Tucker Files: Golden Retriever, Dinner Thief!

Has this ever happened to you? Too cute!

The Daily Golden

Tonight I made a beautiful stuffed pork tenderloin, served on a bed of spinach and cheese risotto, with a side of spinach and arugula salad, complete with toasted almonds.  It was a labor of love…

I sat down to watch the Leafs game and enjoy the fruits of my labor.  Needless to say I had an audience.

Just when I thought I had enough shots and it was safe, I attempted to put down my ipad.

Somehow, I managed to capture this:

Tucker managed to get one pork medalion.  My fault, I know…here is his punishment!  Go Leafs!

Golden Retriever Holds World Record for Dog with Most Tennis Balls in Mouth!

Thought I would share this with everyone. Submit your cute Golden pics for the 2015 Calendar! And don’t forget to give 2014 GRREAT Calendars as gifts this Christmas!

The Daily Golden

Well wouldn’t you know it!?  I randomly came across this article while researching another topic.  This is just one more reason golden retrievers are the best breed on the planet.  Not only does the golden retriever hold the record for the world’s loudest bark, they are also top dog when it comes to holding tennis balls in their mouth, according to The Guinness Book of World Records.

Golden retriever Augie from Dallas, Texas claimed the title in the Guinness Book of World Records on July 6, 2003 when he held 5 regulation sized tennis balls in his mouth!

Golden retrievers were bred to carry game in their mouths, therefore the ideal golden has a gentle bite, and can fit lots in their mouths.  The bigger the jowels the better!
