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!

New Things Happening At The Daily Golden

If you are a regular blog follower on, this post is specifically for you. I’m currently at a loss because I have switched from 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 – 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).

Adam Levine Debuts New Golden Retriever Puppy on The Voice

I recently speculated that Adam Levine and his fiance Bahati Prinsloo welcomed a new golden retriever puppy into their lives. (Did Adam Levine and Bahati Prinsloo get a new Golden Retriever Puppy?)


Last night on The Voice, Adam Levine pulled out all the stops and introduced his new puppy “Charlie” to the world. He said “Something America doesn’t know about me is I got a new puppy, and her name is Charlie

Adam Levine’s (fairly new) Puppy – “Bones”

Did Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine get a new dog?  Adam has yet to mention the death of his golden retriever “Frankie girl” publicly.  I did a blog post back in March about this and it is one of my most viewed posts:

Adam Levine Says Goodbye to His Golden Retriever Frankie Girl

Since there have been several search terms on my blog stats lately including “Adam Levine” “Dog” “Bones” I began searching the internet to try and answer that question and it looks like Adam got himself a “golden doodle” back in March of this year.

Here’s what I have found so far:

1)  A breeder stating she sold one of her golden doodles to Adam Levine.  Apparently he received the dog as a gift.

Cookers Urban Homestead - Golden Doodle Breeder - this photo has the caption "Sold to Adam Levine"

Cookers Urban Homestead – Golden Doodle Breeder – this photo has the caption “Sold to Adam Levine”

My Google search also revealed a Flickr page that looks to belong to the dog’s breeder.  The photo is copyrighted so just click here to view it.  It is accompanied by the following caption:

“I sold this puppy to Adam Levine from Maroon and The Voice in March 2013. He supposedly got the puppy as a birthday gift after his beloved Golden Retriever Frankie passed away. I still have not seen any photos of him with the puppy, but I’m sure they will be surfacing soon! Come on Adam, we want to see your new puppy!!

2)  This was on a forum thread from a site called Bellazon about Adam’s current girlfriend Nina Agdal and it read:

“Sure that is a real dog… Adam got it in March and also Behati has had pictures with it when they were still on / off dating (or she either was with Adam’s family, who is quite fond of her it seems even after their relationship fumbled, because she took this picture with the dog in April I think and they were supposed to be split by then).”

Bones_Adam_DogI think they are referring to the picture on the bottom right.  It almost doesn’t look real! (Click here to visit thread)

3)  An Instagram photo of someone who appears to be backstage at a taping of “The Voice”


4:  And there’s this tweet from Hart Hanson:


So there you have it.  Evidence seems to show that Adam Levine has replaced his beloved golden retriever Frankie girl with a golden doodle…”Bones”.

If you have any photos or information on “Bones” please share them in the comments.

Usher Buys A “Golden Retriever Mix” At Auction For $12,000

There are so many things wrong with this post I don’t know where to begin.

Mike Coppola/Getty –

First of all, if you read my blog, you know how I feel about these “goldendoodle” dogs that some people consider to be breeds and pay large amounts of money for (those poor mislead souls)

Second, what kind of breeder auctions off their puppies?  Forget I asked, there are far too many to even begin to count.

Usher attended the Pencils for Promise Gala in New York The charity builds schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana.  This sounds like a great cause and all, but couldn’t they find something else to auction off?
