25 Golden Retrievers Celebrating the 4rth of July

Golden retrievers sure don’t mind getting dressed up or posing for the camera, especially when treats are involved.  I asked my Facebook and Instagram followers to submit photos of their goldens celebrating.  Thanks to everyone who sent in photos, I wish I could share them all.  Here are some of my favorites.

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.

Update: 10 Golden Retrievers “Mutt Muggin”

I first heard about mutt muggin’ from fellow blogger Dr. Jessica Vogelsang and her adorable Brody at Pawcurious. She posted a photo on her facebook page of her golden muggin’ and in the caption said “You all should try this, it’s surprisingly entertaining.”

It’s basically a picture of your dog inside of a mug. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a mutt either! Tucker and I gave it a shot…it was definitely entertaining!
Thanks to Beth for sharing this picture of Romy mutt muggin.

A perfect day for a Golden cup of coffee!!

Golden Retriever of the Month – Troy!

This is Troy from Southern California. He is a 9 year old golden retriever that was found on Craigslist at the age of 6. The ad read: “5 year old Golden Retriever needs a home.. please call.” It had no photo, and no reason why. Troy went to his “furever home” that night with his new owner.

Troy’s favorite treats are anything sweet potato or peanut butter! His human says “His favorite thing in the world to do is swim. I have to force him to stop or he would literally go for hours. He doesn’t even need anything to chase he just wants to swim, but his favorite thing to retrieve is definitely a stick

troystick

Like most goldens, Troy likes to bring you things when you come home, or to company when they arrive – “One of Troy’s quirks I guess would be he HAS to put something in his mouth when I get home, or when someone comes over. His usual choice is the remote control that sits on the coffee table. If that’s not there he goes for a shoe, a water bottle, a dish towel, or anything he can find that isn’t an actual dog bone or toy.” (Tucker is the same way, thankfully he hasn’t tried it with the remote yet, its usually shoes or bones!)

I discovered Troy through Instagram, and wanted to share a few photos of him at the permission of his owner. You can follow Troy on Instagram at @janellekayli and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/nelle4

Here’s some pictures of Troy doing what he loves best, amazing Instagram photos I might add…

This is Troy. He isn't letting #cancer stop him #goldenretrievers #goldensofinstagram

Unfortunately, “Troy was diagnosed with lymphoma Aug 2013. He went into remission after 6 chemo treatments. He still has 3 months left of chemo but so far so good. He’s had only positive reactions!” You can follow his updates or donate to his treatments here: http://www.gofundme.com/TTreatments

Despite all of this, Troy likes to live life to the fullest…

Thankfully, Troy is in great hands! Wishing you all the best Troy and Janelle!

Do You Have A Nickname For Your Golden Retriever?

I have several nicknames for Tucker.  “Little Guy” “Stinky old Guy”, “Sweet Face”, “Sir Poops Alot” ..the list goes on and on.  This is just a silly, fun post.  I am curious to know what you call you golden(s)  Please share in the comments or #goldenretrievernicknames on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.  For even more fun, share a picture that captures the “nickname”

Thanks to @colleenconway of Instagram for allowing me to share this photo of her “schmoozle” the late “Summer”

Here she is again, she also gets the nickname “Summersault”

Did Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo Get A New Golden Retriever Puppy?

I have to admit I was kinda bummed when I reported that Maroon 5 front man and judge on The Voice Adam Levine got a “golden doodle” for his birthday back in June. After saying goodbye to his previous golden, Frankie Girl, I assumed he may eventually take in another golden into his life (this purely based on personal experience that once you own a golden, nothing compares).

Today my Google searches contained a lot of “Adam Levine new dog Christo” searches.

I did a little investigating and the only thing I could come up with so far were two photos posted on Adam’s fiance Bahatii Prinsloo ‘s Instagram page of a cute little golden retriever puppy. (possibly named “Christo”)

STOP IT.
