A Friend for Life Review with images

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

DisadvantagesHair, hair and more hair everywhere!

"...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 Retrievers are rather susceptible to. Bolly was the the first dog we ever owned (but I knew from the off she wasn't going to be the last) and I loved her to bits, even though she was the scruffiest dog in the world. Our house felt incredibly empty ..." Read review

GOLDEN GIRLS........AND BOYS!!

AdvantagesA brilliant, loyal, loving family pet.

DisadvantagesNone 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 wonderful family dog. Ruby is my second Golden Retriever, I have had and do currently own other breeds of dog but for me, the Golden Retriever is the best ..." Read review

A companion... to take all your troubles away Review with images

AdvantagesThey are calm, patient, caring, loving, gentle...

DisadvantagesNone or perhaps bad breath!

"===A golden retriever... a companion who is there for you through all your troubles=== A breed of dog... that won't let you down. They are a beautiful yellow/gold colour. They shed some of their hair in the summer. But they do not have greasy skin like some other dogs. Golden retrievers used to be used as hunting dogs but not so much now. Their intelligence is now used for a variety of very important jobs like: * Guide dog... they can help the ..." Read review

Hair, hair everywhere

Advantageslovely and loyal

Disadvantageshair

"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 mate had the mother and father and it happened as it does. As soon as they were born, my mother, sister and I went to see them. There were three ..." Read review

Golden Cowpats

AdvantagesIntelligent, gentle and very very amusing

DisadvantagesFree time? What's that?

"...it quite clear that the golden retriever is, in my experience, one of the best breeds of dog to keep as a pet. They are typical of all gundog breeds in their intelligence and their ability to learn, giving them a real personality and at times almost human like character. This ability means that, in the main, the comments I have made above do apply more to younger retrievers and can be trained out with age, although at times the natural instincts seem ..." Read review

Never ever buy a blue carpet !!!

AdvantagesLovable, playful, loyal, great with kids

Disadvantagesdefinately the hair oh and digging!!!

"In my defence the carpet came before the dog and although i have to hoover on a daily basis sometimes i get to go 2 days without having to hoover! 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 as a game he has never hurt them he just wags his tail and off they go down the garden at full speed it is the funniest thing to watch! He is such a loving ..." Read review

Best Dog in the World!

AdvantagesLoyal, friendly, affectionate, great with children

DisadvantagesHair, hair everywhere! Lots of flatulence and dribble too!

"...where a farmer was selling Golden Retriever puppies. When we arrived, we instantly fell in love with a little male puppy who was quite happily rolling around in a muddy puddle. We paid £160 for him as he was a certified pedigree and then put him the car for the return journey. Well the little fluffy puppy grew into a humungous dog, and it seems so long ago that we were trying to housetrain and get him accustomed to our two cats. (He was, and ..." Read review

Bramwell is Golden

AdvantagesGreat for training

DisadvantagesCan 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 blindness; we hope that Bramwell will not receive the same fate and take away his superfluous sight. Bramwell requires exercising twice a day but the amount ..." Read review
