Golden Retriever helps Grant Childs’ Make-A-Wish Dream

The Daily Golden

Ricochet the surfice dog is doing what she does best, making others lives a little brighter.  This time it was with cancer fighter Caleb Acosta.  Caleb has stage for brain cancer.

The Make A Wish Foundation contacted Ricochet’s owner, Judy Fridono, after Caleb saw Ricochet surfing with children on ESPN. Judy and Ricochet were moved and honored to help make Caleb’s dream come true.

On February 12, 2014, Caleb and Ricochet met at Del Mar Dog Beach in California where Caleb’s wish was granted.  He was able to escape his pain and suffering and had an amazing time, and I’m pretty sure Ricochet didn’t mind either.

Once again, thanks so much for all you do Judy and Ricochet!  Please check out their Facebook page Facebook.com/SurfDogRicochet and tell them The Daily Golden sent you.

Also, please take a moment if you can to visit Caleb’s page…

It’s That Time of Year..Near Water? Keep an Eye on Your Golden Retriever(s)!

You hear stories of dogs rescued from the icy depths after falling through the ice. Yes, most are Goldens or Labs. Please watch where both you and your dog step during these cold, icy months.

The Daily Golden

I posted several reports last year of goldens on the ice/water.  Some ended well, others didn’t.  If you are near frozen waters, please keep an eye on your dogs at all times…there are too many of these incidents to report!!!  (Please share with anyone who owns a dog and has access to frozen bodies of water!!)

Hopewell Township, NJ – Here’s a story (with video) about 2 golden retrievers, Trixie and Ruby, from New Jersey who

ventured out onto the icy waters after escaping their home (it happens to the best of us, let’s not judge)   After 20 minutes, they were rescued by the Union Company Fire & Rescue Squad.

Golden Video of the Week – Golden Retriever Facts

The Daily Golden

This brilliant video was written and produced by Ben Stumpf and Matt Pagourgis   I discovered it on The Pet Collective – my favorite source for pet videos.  It shares clips of previous golden videos I have shared, but with a dramatic voiceover with witty sayings like “Today, we’re looking at the pups that Midas touched” and  “cloudy with a chance of tennis balls”   And the ending!!!!
