If you have some great shots of your golden retriever(s) that you would like to send to The Daily Golden with permission to use them on my blog (with credit and link of course) please send them to me at email@example.com
I’m looking for photos to use for my header images and stuff. I would also love a logo someday…
There have been quite a few unforgettable memories in my lifetime that stand out in my head. You know those kinds of memories where you remember every single detail even though years and years have gone by? That’s what I’m talking about. This one particular occurrence happened about ten years ago, and it has completely changed my life for the better.
I came across a post on DoggyMom.com about making sweaters and things out of your dogs hair. As the owner of a golden retriever, I could outfit a whole orphanage in about a year. This isn’t a hobby I will be taking up anytime soon, but I suppose its a great way to recycle…
Mason City, Iowa – The Humane Society of North Iowa has saved the day for Goldie, who is described as ” a seven- year-old female Golden Retriever with a survivalist instinct, a forgiving spirit and a heart of pure gold” by HSNI executive director Sybil Soukup.
Goldie was left outside in a kennel for 3 weeks with no food and little water with seven other dogs after their owner had been evicted. They were discovered by the landlord of the property, severely malnourished. Goldie weighed a mere 46 lbs. It appears she had chewed most of her tail off in order to survive.
Due to the dogs age and condition, the landlord was going to take the dog to the veterinarian to be euthanized.
The landlord made a last minute decision and contacted the HSNI and they advised they had resources to help the dog. Goldie has had surgery on her tail and is gaining weight.
All other dogs found at the home have been adopted, but Goldie awaits a forever home.

Not that I would ever feed this stuff to Tucker, (sorry) but if you are feeding your dog Purina Beniful, you may want to switch to something else, because according to reports from Consumer Affairs, in the last few months, dogs are getting sick from eating this dog food.
