“A Friend for Life”

published 25/02/2004

Loyal and obedient - you'll have a friend for life

Hair, hair and more hair everywhere!

~~ Updated March 2009 ~~ If there is one thing that is guaranteed to bring a smile to my face is the unexpected sighting of a Golden Retriever. Our first Retriever was called Bollinger (Bolly). Sadly, Bolly died at the age of ten from a soft tissue sarcoma i.e. cancer - something that Golden...

A brilliant, loyal, loving family pet.

None really

Golden Retrievers were originally developed in the 1800s in Scotland to assist in the fields and retrieve game during hunting, They were bred to have soft mouths so as not to damage birds that they retrieved, and also to have a love of water. I own an 8 month old Golden Retriever, they are a...

The Golden Retriever. Ah the infamous cute dog. We all know what a Golden Retriever looks like, and we all want to stroke one when we see one in the streets. I have had a Golden Retriever since March and I love her to bits. She was born on the 4th January and was an "accident". Lol. My dad's work...

“Golden Cowpats”

published 11/01/2005

Intelligent, gentle and very very amusing

Free time? What's that?

The first point to keep in mind with these dogs is that they do exactly what it says on the box ‘Retrieve’! Obviously the first thought that springs to mind is of thrown sticks and toys etc, but be warned it does not stop there. They are equally happy retrieving socks from the washing...

I have 3 cats who were here first and a 9 year old boy all of whom have adapted to Reggie very well and in turn he has to them! He does chase them but...

“Bramwell is Golden”

published 25/05/2007

Great for training

Can be rebellious at times

Bramwell is now 8 years young and is now a real member of our family; he has a great temperament but hates the postman with real power. Bramwell is a true great and we hope that he will live to a ripe old age, unlike his predecessor, Tom, who passed on at the age that Bramwell is now due to...
