Acronyms are part of our world…so go retrieve this one that I created…HDD Drone..Hot Dog Delivery Drone…yeah Oscar Mayer Wiener is working on dropping you a dog…get on with yourself…watch this video and be sure to wait for the Wienerdrone…
Remember safety first as you celebrate the coming 4th of July!
I have also learned that human blood banks go to all time lows during the summer months...yeah the beach…the mountains…the vacation time…ya’ll forget during this time to donate…hey…it happens. Just consider giving some blood before the running around fun time sets in. So, lay down and give…Now that’s a golden good thought!
A big thanks to Huffington Post for this informative post and touching video.
Ever since I was a pup…I have been working on being a well-behaved dog…I’ve been at this for three years and it never ends. I’ve also learned to listen and follow my instincts…the retrieving part…so I get things…yes I do understand quite a bit…but I mean I go and “get things”…like my toys.
She says “Go get your toy!”… and off I go…retrieve the toy and bring it for a playtime. I’m also still working on calming down…goal in mind… become a Therapy Dog…so I’ve been practicing outside of my local hospital…learning to take my place…be calm…and just do nothing…that’s right nothing…just sit or lay down and accept the gentle hands that pet me…It’s my job…hey somebody has to do it.
Listen up! My golden retriever self adores crunching ice cubes…I get these treats when we’re outside…when I’m settled…when I’m lounging on the patio. If I’m overheated after a walk or a romp…my people lower my body temperature by pouring cool water on my head…my dog neck and belly…it’s such a relief…they never offer ice cubes at this time...because my body temp could drop too quickly shocking my system. So, ice is nice at the right time. Cool paws!
When walking on the grounds of the National Gallery of Art East Building…you gotta look up! Yeah and then go up on the terrace for a photo opp with “Big Blue.”
This plastic blue dude started out, ruling the roost over the City of London’s Trafalgar Square.
The doodle-blue then crossed over the pond and has found his roost in Washington, DC since last July. Go see this colossal sculpture and check that off your “Golden To Do List.” I’m already waiting in the car…let’s go!
I gotta admit that I was not very good at being in a kennel. Just me…my golden self wanted space…so when I heard that the “Greatest Show on Earth” closed…my retriever heart celebrated for all of the many animals that had spent their lives in crates and cages…or tethered on chains…traveling from here to there.
Yes… digging is part of many dogs lives…but…there are dogs that get into locating bones that are hundreds of years old…yep…archaeology on four legs. These dogs have such self-control…once they find bones…they back off…moon walk backwards and NEVER touch the bones. Can you image that one? Read on for golden enlightenment. Bones them bones…them dry bones.
