When it comes to "best friends", there's not one better than the Golden Retriever....
Particularly (for this family), this golden retriever.....
She was six years old when I met my husband
(he got her as a puppy)
She and I clicked,
like two old friends right from the start.
She was probably thankful for
another girl around the house,
and one that could handle Sall was even better!!
We lost her September '09 to a throat tumor.
There hasn't been a day go by that we don't miss her.
Golden Retrievers are special dogs...
the consummate loyal, eager, ever-grateful,
never-disappointing best friends.
They are great baby-sitters!!
"Don't worry mom, I'm watchin' her"
Always friendly and sociable.
And oh, so handsome!
Our Max is getting along better now, all by himself.
He gets pretty bored without Josie.
But he has finally matured into that great hunting dog Sall has been waiting for.
It was pretty tough with the queen of retrievals around.
She would snarl at him if he went near one of her birds.
He has a great nose for hunting too.
He's constantly smelling the wind and sniffing out the game.
No pheasants to flush out today, maybe next time!
Today, I'm thankful for my faithful companions,
Max and Josie
