I thought this would be a fun BLOG topic. I love Golden Retrievers - you can tell by my avatar! My current dog is Jake, who is 3+ years old. He is a light Golden color like this.
My first Golden, Jessie, was Dark red. Goldens have a wonderful, loving disposition and are great with kids. My niece and nephew used her for a pillow when they were very young. She tolerated them playing with her ears, lifting her lips to see her teeth and even take food from her
Jake has always been more independent that Jessie was. Maybe it's a boy thing! He wasn't very cuddly as a puppy but now he wants to cuddle with me on cold nights watching TV.
What's your favorite breed and why?
