Golden Retriever In The Running To Be Next Colonel Sanders

KFC has recently been casting “The Colonel” in their commercials with some famous comedians like Norm MacDonald and Darrell Hammond.

Their most recent ad featured comedian Jim Gaffigan as the authentic Colenel, who sees a board full of photos.  Above it a sign that reads “The Next Colenel”. Faces included Gilbert Gottfried, Tori Spelling, Gary Busey and a golden retriever sporting a bow tie!


Here is the commercial…I don’t think the golden should be a contender, since he can’t eat chicken bones!

  1.  I must get one of these!  It’s a decal that could go on your car, your laptop, or wherever it will stick.   Check out NickerStckers on Etsy. $7.59 USDimage
  1.  A gorgeous ornament from Painted Pooches sells for $22 USD and can be customized with name, date, included in the price.  They offer other great handcrafted gifts as well.

image3.  Golden lover AND wine lover?  The perfect choice is the Golden Retriever collection from Benefit Wines.  $6 from every bottle goes to the rescue or charity of your choice.  You choose from the menu at the top of their site. Such an amazing concept..two of my favourite things.  You can choose from options like Zoey’s Merlot or Edie’s Chardonnay.  My link is to Arizona Golden Retriever Connection, but you can choose your own…


  1.  For the foodie or BBQ chef in your life, CafePress offers an apron for $23.99 USD.

10.  A one-of-a-kind golden retriever necklace from For Love of a Dog caught my eye, and is something I would love to own someday…they offer other jewellery as well!


Another great idea  I wanted to mention is a calendar featuring golden retrievers.  Check online for a rescue near you, many of them offer calendars and other items, and proceeds go to rescuing these golden beauties!
