Drone walks Golden Retriever (video)

I discovered this video this morning. It appears to be going viral. I don’t suggest you try this at home, but what a good dog! This golden retriever is being taken for a walk on the streets by a helicopter drone. Video by Jeff Myers.

*After some comments, just want to add, Jeff did this purely for fun, and is not lazy, and does not recommend this. Yay Jeff! I, personally, love it!

I just wanna say you heard it here first!  A few weeks ago I posted about Ray Charles winning a photo contest for dog of the week in Modern Dog magazine.  Since that time, he has taken the internet by storm on an international level.  His Facebook Page has almost 35,000 followers and now he is being featured in newspapers around the world including The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and The Today Show.   This morning he was off to do a live interview with NECN.   Ray Charles is being labled the “cutest dog on the internet”  Sorry “Boo”  Your time is up!

Golden Goodbyes – Ginger The Golden Retriever

You may remember Ginger, the golden retriever from YouTube, who’s claim to fame was the video Breakfast at Ginger’s. Ginger passed away suddenly from cancer earlier this week.

Ginger’s owners, Scott and Barb posted the news on Ginger’s Facebook page on Tuesday March 19.  The cancer was aggressive and came without warning.

“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and for letting us share our wonderful pups with you. Ginger’s cancer was very aggressive and she was declining rapidly. We couldn’t let her suffer anymore, and with the help of a veterinary oncologist made the decision to put her down this afternoon. Our family is heartbroken, but we know she ran up to heaven on the wings of your prayers and well wishes. Thank you all for your support. Many of you mentioned you have gone through it before or going though it now. Our hearts are with you. It has been a cold and snowy few days here in Michigan. We took Buddy for a walk a bit ago and the wind got really strong and we looked up and suddenly the sun peaked through the sky, just for a little bit. We like to think that was Ginger lighting up heaven with a grand entrance! Thank you again for your support and friendship.
With deepest gratitude,
Scott and Barb ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥”

Golden Retriever dance troup performs at London Pet Show

Picture this:  16 beautiful Golden Retrievers in a line, or a circle, or a V formation, prancing around with their handlers to music like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga.  It is pure joy to watch….

The Southern Golden Retriever Display Team was established in 2001.    They are a team of 16 Golden Retrievers and their owners (plus 5 reserve dogs) who perform at various events around Kent, Surrey, and Sussex England.   They got their rise to fame when they performed on Discover Dogs in 2003.  Since then, they have performed at Crufts every year since 2004. Last weekend these adorable, smiley faced goldens were featured at the London Pet Show.

The team practices on a weekly basis, rain or shine.  Dogs on the team are trained based on what is called The Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme (GCDS) They promote the pleasure of owning a well behaved dog, and at the end of their performance, they invite children into the ring to pet the dogs and learn about responsible pet ownership.

The team goes through various drills and formations set to music.  There are sometimes some imperfections with the performance, which makes it even more adorable if you ask me!

Here is a video of the team performing at Crufts:

Richard Fisher, a writer for New Scientist magazine, saw the team of Goldens performing at Discover Dogs and became an instant fan.  He wanted to propose to his girlfriend Krissy, so he had each golden wear a letter around its neck spelling “Krissy will you marry me?” (I assume they had to use the reserves here) Apparently, she said yes!   So here is where the group gained their youtube fame…Richard was tasked by his editor to write an article on “what makes a youtube sensation”  He wanted to use the golden retrievers to illustrate the structure of an atom.  The video is called “Pets Teach Science” and it currently has over 300,000 views.  Please watch and share the video.  If it goes viral, maybe they will get to perform on Ellen, or Conan!  They are both animal lovers, and I believe Conan still owns a Golden Retriever of his own.

The Southern Golden Retriever Display Team illustrating the structure of atoms:

The Southern Golden Retriever Display Team is a subsidiary of The Southern Golden Retriever Society, an established breed club from England.  Karen Menter is the Display Team’s manager.  She choreographs the routines, is the “caller” during performances, and works with her own dog “Saffy”
