  • I had not known the story of Lord Tweedmouth starting the retriever breed.

    Interesting, he did a good job!

    Of course the reasons he wanted an easy going, placid, but intelligent and friendly animal would have been slightly differnet from the current one as a companion and pet.

    I think that while their Lordships were shooting the retriever would have been required to go and pick up the bird and bring it back for the pot!

  • As far as I know, the Golden Retriever very friendly, not particularly aggressive, beside extremely intelligent dog. Real family pet, great with kids and other pets!!

  • Hi I am a middle school student and I have my own blog for a class that I am in. Each week we get different blog posts to do. This week we had to find another persons blog about any topic we wanted and leave them a comment and then blog about how we found the blog we did, why we picked it, ect. So I love Golden Retrievers so much so I typed in Blog+Golden Retrievers and I clicked on yours. I really like the video you have of your dog dancing with you. That dog is very talented. I have a Golden Retriever and I got her when I was 8 years old for Valentines Day. I’ve wanted for so long and finally my parents said yes (but just barely) and so we went to the pet store not knowig i was going to get one and i asked to take one out and they said yes and of course by the time I was done playing with her I fell in love with her and asked to take her home. I knew they would say no, but since I gave them that really sad look there was no way they could say no to me. =) Anyways, I think that they are beautiful dogs and I would have 100 of them if I could.

  • I remember when my first Alsation got arthritis and there wasn’t much we could do. That’s changed now – but it’s still a debilitating condition. If you have had success with an arthritis treatment please post a comment on the link below. Thanks

  • Goldens certainly are a fine breed, not only as companion pets for the family, but also as hunting retrievers of waterfowl–ducks and geese. They also excel at upland bird hunting, where they seek out game birds, such as ringneck pheasants and ruffed grouse, which they flush out of the cover for the hunter.
    Although many Golden retriever owners today don’t hunt, it would be a shame not to breed Goldens with an eye toward their origin and purpose. Bred from hunting stock, a Golden will still make an excellent family pet.
    One of my pet peeves is hearing people refer to the breed as “Golden Labs.”

  • Golden’s are such an awesome family dog.

    Anytime anyone asks me what the “best” dog is, I’m quick to answer a Golden Retriever.

    They are just so well rounded, and have such a pleasant disposition.

  • I have always want to own a golden retriever. I think they are very friendly, energetic and loves to play and lovable. What I like about this dog is that they have a nice coat and I think they are the greatest pet you can have in your family.
