The Cycle of Life: Live and Learn|
Getting your very first Golden Retriever is an experience that stands alone. One of the
friendliest and most lovable dog breeds, many people feel Golden Retrievers may
truly be angels in disguise. Surely,
they tempt you with their beauty. But, just as quickly, you are stunned by their
determination and intelligence.
Yet, it is their ability to read their human
companion's thoughts and feelings that make them almost magical. Mordecai Siegal & Matthew Margolis offer a
similar, heartfelt profile.
"As you read this sentence, your
lovable Golden Retriever is probably turning his water bowl
upside down and splashing in the puddles with his large
paws. He expects you to be as excited to see him and his
puddles as he is to see you the minute you walk in the door.
Your very presence makes him happy."
"He brings you his ball
and invites you to play with him as he smiles with his
slurping tongue. But if something is seriously wrong and you
feel bad, your Golden senses it right away and is likely to
console you by gently giving you his paw or by laying his
head on your lap."
"He gladly shares your sadness as well as
your happiness. Golden Retrievers are living proof that
dreams do come true. It is impossible to keep your hands off
these stand-up comedians. At times they are uninhibited
clowns, and at other times they are the essence of canine
dignity. To know them is to love them."
"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his
life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last
beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
