Please stop posting pictures of your Retrievers!

Please stop posting pictures of your retrievers. I just love those dogs and every time I see one my first impulse is to get my car keys and drive to the SPCA to look for one to bring home. They have the sweetest dispositions and personalities. I had a friend in college who was never without one even as a freshman. I loved her dearly, but my best memories were of the escapades of her dogs and the times we spent with them.

We have two kitties who'd be less than thrilled sharing the domicile with a dog, especially one the size of a retriever.

Lest anyone be offended, this post is in jest. Keep the photos coming I enjoy them.

Well, each time I brush my retriever, I have enough hair to make another dog...would you like me to send it to you?

I love her but that hair is everywhere, absolutely everywhere! Oh, I don't mind vacuuming 3x a week.

Alix, your Abby looks a lot like our Sparky. He was the greatest!

aren't Goldens the most popular breed in the U.S.?
ours is a mutt/mix (we think a mix with border collie because of her mothering, herding instincts)

when daughter was little, she always called her a golden retreater

Actually, when my mother was alive she had her neighbor save their golden's hair and she would spin it into yarn and made some beautiful sweaters from the fur. It was so soft, almost like cashmere.
