they don't know when to come in from the storm.


Getting a Nor'easter here in NY so lots of snow and wind. My guy would sleep in the snow if I didn't drag his sorry hind quarters inside.

Anyone else got goldens who like the cold/wet/snow?

I don't, but my cousins have a really great golden. They live near Cleveland, and their golden loves the snow. She rolls in it, eats it, etc. She likes sitting out on the driveway in the winter as well.

Goldens are just all around good dogs.

My dog is half golden, half yellow lab, and loves the snow. He can run out in the snow and play for hours. He especially likes eating the snow.  Smile

My golden loved the snow...it was tons of fun to play fetch and have him dig out the tennis ball from the snow and come out with a snowy snout...

I have two Goldens. A female HOLLY (the love of my life too! G) and TROOPER. They are the best!

Every puppy is cute, but a Golden puppy is the CUTEST!

and he can tell time. 7:00 a.m. I get "the look". Sound asleep and when I wake up I got two eyes staring at me. Guess its breakfast time. Dog could be sound asleep, but around 6 p.m. magically wakes up and gives me "the look" again. dinner time.

Definitely...golden's are the greatest...great around kids! I still remember the day in late 1981 when our family chose and brought home our first Golden, from near Palo Alto, CA. Ginger...AKC registered as a pure Golden Retriever...she was with us for 6 great years, but had to be put down as she had worsening bone cancer. One of the saddest days of my life, let me tell you. She was a huge part of our family, and moved to Oregon with us in June '84, and got to fly on a UA 727 from SFO-PDX on 6/25/84.

I also had another golden, Nutmeg...which Ginger gave birth to the summer of '85. Nutmeg wasn't a pure Golden, but a great dog nonetheless.

As soon as I get my first house (I live in a townhouse, 1200 sq. feet) with a decent yard, that will be one of the first things I do...getting another Golden. I think about it fairly often. Probably name her Rosco or Riley, or something interesting.

Goldens are great and so are Dalmatians, though Dalmatians are definitely no dogs for beginners. They need a special diet, shed quite a bit and must be brushed regularly. And they need to run, and play around and run and play around and run - you really need to spend quality hours with your Dalmatian every day.
I live in Berlin and refuse to adopt a dog again, but I would love to and it would be a close call between a Golden Retriever and a Dalmatian.

Recently, I came across a mix of Labrador and Rhodesian Ridgeback. Very nice dog, too.

My wife and I love goldens. Unfortunately, we are not a "dog" family or we'd have a couple. Maybe once the kids are gone and we're retired.

Last one we had, Chance, turned out to be more aggressive than any we'd seen. Our vet took him and she still has problems with his aggression.

Do not let his looks fool you. I love him to death and he is a great dog, but good lord is he wild. It is amazing that he sat still long enough for my mom to snap that pic

GREAT pic JetJock! When my HOLLY was a pup she looked just like yours!

It will take about two years for them to be a bit calmer. As my two goldens say "Live to Ball and Ball to live"...they could play 24/7!

By chance do you have one of those laser pointers? Mine go CRAZY with it. They now want to play "cyber" more than they do ball. They chase the light around like crazy.

I've got a black lab, over Xmas we got like 2 inches of snow in DFW. He just got really confused and didn't know what the hell all the white stuff was on the ground. He gave it a few licks took a leak putsed around the yard for a while the came back in. He loved it when he was a puppy though. He hates the rain though, wont go out when its raining or misting for that matter.

I have a yellow lab but she lives with my parents since I moved into a condo. Indeed, I grew up with yellow labs so this is the 1st time I have not had one at home. Nothing like coming home from a shitty day at work to be greeted by a big floppy labrador.

Labs & Goldens are all the same. They love the snow -- playing in it, eating it, etc.

I'm totally a lab person. I can't pass one in the street without stopping to say hello. They all have the same personality. They act like pups until they are 8yo or so, and then get moody.

My labs all love cheese (I'm convinced they would keep eating forever if there was enough food around), they can clear a room with their silent farts, they give you dirty looks when you are late with their supper, they watch TV with you, lie on your feet, lie under the kitchen table when you're eating there. And anything that falls on the floor....is their's. That's their territory. Your friends are their friends also. Oh ya -- the lab owns the house. We live with THEM.

I'd love to meet a 30yo blond chick with a labrador. My dream girl.  Smile

Nah, we used to have a laser pointer for our old dog and he loved it. I'm not sure where it is, but I don't think Tucker's attention span is big enough for a laser pointer yet. We had a golden before we got Tucker, but he wasn't quite as wild as Tucker is. By the way KROC, OH-IO!!!!
