20 Celebrities Who Own Golden Retrievers Right Now

Here are 20 celebrities who are currently, to the best of my research, sharing their lives with a golden retriever or two. Warning: This list may include reality television stars.

1. Oprah Winfrey has two golden retrievers, Luca and Gracie. (as well as a few more four legged friends)…YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat, and YOU get a treat..

2.  Adam Levine Maroon Five front man and judge on “The Voice”  (who was also most recently voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine) lost his last golden retriever “Frankie Girl” last year. He and his new wife, Victoria’s Secret model Bahati Prinsloo have since welcomed two more dogs, Bones, the mixed breed, and Charlie, another female golden retriever.

3.  Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone adopted Renn on Christmas Eve 2012, and she is often seen accompanying them to movie sets.

New Things Happening At The Daily Golden

If you are a regular blog follower on WordPress.com, this post is specifically for you. I’m currently at a loss because I have switched from WordPress.com to self-hosting at Bluehost and seem to have lost the “community feel” of my initial followers and friends. I’m talking Harper Lee, Grady, The Sundog Drift, DogDaz etc. Are these people still seeing my blog? Will they still continue to visit? These have been the most intimate blogging relationships I have had over the last two years.mallard

Do me a favor if you see this post fellow bloggers? Comment, Tweet, Facebook, Instagram message, or email me at thedailygolden@gmail.com – whatever you like to let me know you are still out there and I will make sure to specifically follow your blogs via email. I do not want to lose touch. This is difficult for me, but a decision best made sooner rather than later.

Please stick with me as I face these changes and keep up with all these goldens. They are all so wonderful and generally sweet.

Oh, and please feel free to visit my new page called “Stuff We Like” and recommend products I should add.   While you are there, buy something!.   Amazon is going to boot me if I don’t get any sales soon. (shameless plug).

WordPress followers, you are truly treasured.  Hope you get this.

Happy Mother’s Day from The Daily Golden

Another post for my loyal readers!  I had some very rare alone time today, and have recently been back to blogging after a wee holiday.  It is you who keeps me going, and I truly love every minute.  Enjoying the sunshine on this wonderful day, and am planning a trip to next year’s Blogpaws conference in Nashville Tennessee!  I have been inspired already, and have updated my About The Blogger page, and wanted you to check it out.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, two legged and four.  Since I am a mom, I have declared today all about ME and it feels pretty darn good!  Thanks for all you do moms!  We ROCK!

I wanted to share this that I found on the Golden Rescue Facebook Page today also.  (It’s good to be back!)

Before I Was a Pet Mom

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I made and ate hot meals unmolested.
I had unstained, unfurred clothes.
I had quiet conversations on the phone,
even if the doorbell rang.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I slept as late as I wanted
and never worried about how late I got to bed
or if I could get into my bed.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I cleaned my house every day.
I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies
or invited the neighbour’s dog over to play.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I didn’t worry if my plants, cleansers,
plastic bags, toilet paper, soap or deodorant
were poisonous or dangerous.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I had never been peed on,
pooped on, drooled on,
chewed on or pinched by puppy teeth.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I had complete control of my thoughts,
my body and mind.
I slept all night without sharing the covers or pillow.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn’t stop a hurt.
I never knew something so furry and four-legged
could affect my heart so deeply.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I had never held a sleeping kitty
just because I couldn’t put it down.
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was well.
I didn’t know how warm it feels inside
to feed a hungry puppy.
I didn’t know that something so small
could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Pet Mom:
I had never known the warmth, the joy,
the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the
satisfaction of being a Pet Mom
