The Puppy Predictors are Back! Golden Retrievers Predict Winners of College Football Championship Game

I’m happy to announce The Puppy Predictors made their first appearance on The Tonight Show last night!   Here they predict the winner of the College Football Championship that takes place Monday January 12 between The Oregon Ducks and Ohio State Buckeyes.

 

Instinctively, they chose The Ducks ;)

 

 

 

 

Shelter Dogs eating Christmas Dinner will make your day!

The people at Freshpet have created a commercial staring shelter dogs (and one patient cat!) from The Humane Society of Utah who are in need of homes.  (Many have found one since the airing of this commercial!)705dogThe golden retriever plays a “teenager”, but there are so many cute dogs who are enjoying some Christmas cheer.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone who is celebrating!

Here’s a behind the scenes look at the making of the video, in case you didn’t get enough.

Golden Retriever rocks the keyboard in a Walk off the Earth Christmas video

The awesome Canadian group Walk off the Earth, who became popular on YouTube for doing some really cool cover songs I.e. Somebody that I used to Know (Gotye – 5 peeps, 1 guitar) released this video on YouTube last Christmas.  As a Canadian, I can say if you haven’t heard of this group, hopefully you will soon! (Actually, you have now!)

It’s The Little Drummer Boy, performed by the group, accompanied by a golden retriever on the keyboards, a husky on “percussion” and what looks like a shepherd mix..(anyone?) who stole the show on the cello! (ish like instrument)

You can also view the behind the scenes video here, which, sadly, doesn’t include much about the doggies…

Help Wanted…What the Heck!? Calling all Golden Experts/Lovers/Owners

As you can see, lately my blog has been lacking.  I am under the weather, and don’t want go go into detail, but calling on my golden readers to submit some ideas, guest posts, videos, etc.

Example:  I recently posted a question on Facebook from one of my followers:

My beautiful girl, Addy Mae , is obsessed with tennis balls. I am sure many of you can relate. I am trying to find a GOOD puzzle toy or any mind stimulating, challenging toys that use tennis balls. I am asking here because I would like some ideas from other golden parents. Thank you in advance for your help.”

I would love some video/photo submissions on how to play this game..in the form of a blog post.  I would give total credit to you and your website of choice!

Golden Retriever of the Month has gone by the wayside…due to lack of submissions, not my lack of choices..I was beginning to feel like a stalker. (although, that’s admittedly what I am, a golden stalker!)  I recently received a beautiful submission, but before I posted it, that golden has crossed the rainbow bridge from cancer.  RIP Winnie. (Please check out  (like)  @TeamGoldenOldies on Facebook!)

I have some great ideas for blog posts, but cant seem to get them from head to blog right now.  I want to keep this blog going!

I am looking for golden experts in show, field, agility, obedience, etc to submit some original posts.  I would also love great rescue stories, service dog stories, etc about golden retrievers.  I do have a decent amount of followers and continue to climb the ranks in Google.  (Over two years, slow and steady wins the race.)

I haven’t lost my passion for goldens, and read my Google alerts daily, and my emails, tweets, and when I can, Facebook and Instagram.  I just haven’t been able to post.  I apologize that I didn’t get my post on adopting a senior golden retriever done in time for the end of November.  Next year….I have some amazing photos that have already been submitted.

I miss so many of my WordPress friends, as I find it hard to access my reader now, but try my best to keep up.

Thanks to all who have stuck with me, more golden stuff soon!
