“Pup Quiz” on The Tonight Show Features Golden Retriever Puppies

Jimmy Fallon spreads love of golden retriever puppies on a new segment entitled “Pup Quiz” hosted by Higgins – where trivia is the game, and snuggling with a golden retriever puppy is the prize.  Here are the episodes so far….,

On August 6, 2015, actress Salma Hayek became the first victim.  This game consists of dog related questions with “Double Puppardy” and “Final Puppardy” while sitting in a leather easy chair.

Sometimes the puppies do bad things….

Next is Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory on Sept 17.  She is a huge animal lover and it is very adamant in this video…love her!

The final contestant so far is Drew Barrymore, one of my absolute heroes where Hollywood is concerned.  These puppies are a little frisky.

Stay tuned for more!

Help Wanted!  Must Love Goldens

Hi, and thanks to all that are still following me. I’m looking for a little help, hoping it will give me some inspiration.  Are you someone who likes to do Facebook posts, Instagram posts, as well as Twitter and Pinterest?? 

  
I have so many great articles to write about so many great goldens, but I’m having obstacles right now.

If you are someone who loves goldens, has a knack for writing and social media, and has a fairly light, not too opinionated personality (always try to see both sides) please send me an email at thedailygolden@gmail.com 
At this point I really don’t make an income, so it would strictly be a volunteer position, however I have high hopes for this blog, and would love to keep it going and grow it even more.

Serious inquiries only please, I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully starting the great new partnership. 

Sincerely, Shannon
