Happy Tuesday Post!

Today is good friends day at the Retriever house.   Our three cousins came by to play for a day or two.   Their humans had to go out of town on business, so we get to play.   Above, seven of us sit for treat time.  We run and play very hard when we get together.  All of us are alternatively running and playing or taking a nap.   We rest up and then go at it again.   With four young Goldens together, we can have a great play day.   Its better than the dog park because we can just keep going all day long.   We get together often enough that all of us know the rules.  We each have a special place where we have to go to get our dinner dish, we all know that we have to sit and wait for treats.   We know where the dog door is, and where the squirrels play in the trees.   It is really very easy for us to go from four to seven and back again.   We did get into trouble, we went out back and had a bark fest.  We were yelled at and told that we cannot have a bark fest, even if the neighbors dogs are encouraging us. 
Above, Nala on the left, Emma and Bella are in front, asserting their right as senior dogs in the house, to their right to get their treats first.    We are all so happy about Nala, she is running with a bounce to her step, she is running with Stella on squirrel chases, she is taking the lead when it's time for treats or dinner.  The Rimadyl has made a huge difference in her life, her golden years are a lot more golden now. 

Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies is asking for volunteers to take in some additional fosters over the holidays.   We are thinking about it, but we will be seven for several times off and on between now and the New Year.  The question is, would we be as happy together as eight or nine? 

Be sure to go to Luke's site, you can go there with a click on "Luke's Link".   Luke is not doing well and needs lots of good thoughts and wishes.   Leave a comment to let them know we are all pulling for them.

  6. Paws crossed for Luke! And yes, we think that you'd be just as happy at 8 or 9.... Just saying... And I'm glad you recognize seniority and let the old folks get their cookies first - age hath privileges (as TaiChi taught me). Fantastic pictures of all of you together!

    PeeEss: Have you been getting snow like we have? This is GREAT!!!

  7. What a treat seeing you all together, and Nala right there with the whole gang.

    We loved the barkfest story. Neighbor dogs started you going, huh? We are also glad to hear you are taking plenty of naps and get strong for the big night with all that playing.

    We wish all the reindogs and the two-legged residents a very happy Christmas.
