Golden Retriever Thanks State Police with Slobbery Kisses After Rescue

Holland, MA – A very grateful golden retriever kissed the faces of his rescuers last Sunday after a scary incident.  The dog was accidentally run over by his owner in their driveway.  When the owner realized this she called for help.  State troopers Paul Bertozzi and Daniel Nunes attended, along with Animal Control Officer Wendy LaSage.

They used a jack to raise the vehicle and free the golden.  When the was free, it ran over and started giving the troopers slobbery kisses!

Does Your Golden Retriever Drool?

Generally speaking, golden retrievers are very food motivated dogs, and as a result, sometimes are overweight.  They eat ravenously and have a bottomless pit for a stomach.

Tucker likes to watch us eat, but when we eat certain foods, (usually bacon or pizza) he will often drool.  Lots.

Drooling while humans eat is one thing, but keep in mind that excessive drooling can be caused by a number of other reasons.  For example, drooling in the car is usually a sign of nervousness.

Sudden, unexplained drooling could mean an injury to the mouth or irritation of the gums or even a symptom of poisoning.  Consult your veterinarian ASAP if this happens.

Golden Retrievers star in Subaru Commercials – Meet the Barkleys!

I saw the most adorable commercial this morning and it turns out that there is a whole series of them!! 5 that I was able to find.  The commercials feature a “family” of golden retrievers (and a sweet lab) called “The Barkleys”.

The dad is played by “Augie” from Canada (yay!)  Mom “Stevie” is a yellow lab rescue who only began her training about 6 months ago!  “Sadie” is 6 months old.  She plays the teenager, and this is her first gig too.   Finally, the sweet puppy is played by “Sebastion”, who apparently didn’t mind riding in the car seat at all!  Information on the Barkleys can be found on the Subaru Dogs site.

This is the one I saw on TV, and it happens to be my favorite…

This one is called “In the Dog House”

Teenagers…

“Turn signal” – because even golden retrievers only have so much patience!

Road Trip!  Count me in!

Subaru has all kinds of commercials featuring dogs.  You can check them all out on their YouTube channel, even some cute “bloopers” but I couldn’t find any containing the goldens/lab.  Perhaps because they are pretty much perfect??!!!

Golden Retriever hit by car..NO ONE STOPS!

Here is a very sad post..a golden retriever is hit by a car on Hacienda Boulevard in La Puente.  No one has claimed the black lab, named “Grace” by Los Angeles County animal shelter in Baldwin Park, and will apparently be available for adoption soon.
