As you might imagine, having a home with a golden retriever in it I tend to seek out blogs that feature goldies. One of my favourites is The Daily Golden. There’s always something in there which is informative, interesting, makes me smile or just makes me say “aaaaaaah”.
I read with interest the other day this articleabout cream golden retrievers. As you all know, having seen about a million photographs of him, Douggie the doggie is a cream coloured golden retriever. “Well I never” I thought “fancy that” I said, “I had no idea” There was me thinking he just happened to be white and all along he’s really been an ‘English Cream Golden Retriever’ or a ‘Rare White European Golden Retriever’ or even an ‘Exquisite Platinum Imported Golden Retriever’. Better temperament, better health and altogether a superior type of goldie?
Blimey. I’d better not tell him he’s from aristocratic stock, he might get too big for his boots.
You can see it if you look closely, can’t you? Here he is on our walk today.
I don’t know why he’s looking so blooming happy with himself. No he hasnt found out he’s supposed to be from the upper classes. He’s just been having a good old romp with Wilf the spaniel and they found a muddy ditch to wallow in. STINKY!
We popped round to Lashes’ house for a cuppa this morning, of course he and Teddy had a great time. Looking for mischief.
