This sweet sleepy golden retriever puppy is loving the tongue bath he is getting from his kitty friend.  This little love fest lasts about 5 minutes!  (can you say hairball!!!???)

Golden Video of the Week – Golden Retriever Puppies in a Wagon

Golden Retriever puppies in a wagon are a part of this Rube Goldberg machine.  I don’t promote this food, and I probably don’t promote the breeder of the puppies used to make this video, but this is what’s hot on the internet right now (and I was pressed for time) so here you go, ….

The Tucker Files: Gourmet Dinner for a Golden Retriever

Say what you will about table scraps, but I feel table scraps are far better than most kibble on the market. Sometimes we spoil Tucker. I guess I should say sometimes we “extra spoil” Tucker. He is perpetually spoiled.

Here’s Tucker waiting for his dinner. He always puts one paw up while begging. I have already explained the menu – perfectly cooked tenderloin (rare-med rare) fresh local asparagus (I.e pure gold) and lobster fettuccine. Rich, I know. I mixed it with his kibble. (Origen Adult Dog)  I always soak his kibble in hot water for about 5 min, so the food expands in the bowl, instead of his tummy.  Heard this from a breeder, it is supposed to help prevent bloat.  It makes a nice gravy.  We make sure his teeth stay clean with the occasional raw bone.


Here’s dinner.  Since I didn’t get anything for mother’s day, I treated myself.  The expensive stuff was all on sale.  This meal was under $40 and fed three!


Did I mention we love food?

Time for a poll!

Homemade Cookies for your Golden Retriever

I received my cookie cutters from cheap cookie cutters the other day and finally had time to make Tucker some treats tonight.


With all the pet food and treat scares I like to make Tucker homemade cookies. I have refined my recipe as follows

2 C flour (rice, whole wheat, all purpose whatever)
1 C oats
1/4 C honey
1 C peanut butter
3/4 C hot water
1 egg
Drizzle olive or flax seed oil

Combine ingredients and roll out and cut into shapes.


Bake at 350 F for about 10 to 15 minutes until golden on edges and cooked through, depending on thickness.
