Is The Golden Retriever The Right Breed For You

Golden Retriever Sitting

When we bought our Golden Retriever we did not do any research as to whether he was the right choice for our home and family. Even though he was a perfect fit, we were just lucky, there are lots of items to think about before you choose your breed. Read the article below to find out more.

The joy and well being that dogs inspire in our lives is clear. They provide companionship and affection, improve fitness levels and general heath, guide us through trying times, and teach us the life-lessons of patience, selflessness and love. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mother of three or a business executive with a 60 hour work week, you may have considered adding a furry new member to your family. Yet, dogs come in every shape and color, all with very distinct temperaments, activity levels and grooming needs. How can you know which breed is right for you?

Tummy RubTummy rub

All dogs love to have belly rubs and my Golden Retriever is no different, it’s like he goes into a different world when the belly rub comes.  Some turn into jello and give you big teeth smiles and wiggle all around, so much fun.  Golden’s don’t ask for much just love, grub and the occasional belly rub.

5 Simple Dog Treat Recipes

5 Simple Dog Treat Recipes

I found this very exciting blog with 5 Simple Dog Treat Recipes on it and I plan to make some of them right away for a very finicky fur puppy.  Read more below, then go to her webpage and grab the rest of the recipes.

Let’s face it, dog treats can get pretty expensive and many of us (myself included) have dogs that deal with sensitivities or allergies to certain foods.

I began making homemade dog treats a couple years ago; and while I’m a big fan of making treats from scratch, I’m not a big fan of slaving over complicated recipes. All of the recipes you’ll find below are simple, grain-free and easily modified!

It’s almost as if our pups realize when I’m making a treat for them versus myself – they’ll be patiently eyeing me from start to finish! Plus, it’s a fun activity and once you have a couple base recipes, you can start modifying and creating your own version of treats.

This first idea is the perfect treat for a hot day – and who knows, your pup might even share this one with you!

1) Frozen Pupsicles

¼ cup peanut butter (unsalted/no sugar added)
½ cup plain yogurt (I used 2% Greek)
1 ripe banana
1 teaspoon ground flax seed (optional)
Splash of unsweetened almond milk

Combine all ingredients in a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into ice cube trays or small bowls (I used Kong ice cube trays & the Bonz mini silicon tray)
Freeze until solid. Remove from freezer 5-10 minutes before serving to soften.

Golden Retrievers At Airports

Golden retrievers at airports help passengers by bringing comfort and joy to holiday travelers

There are few things more reliably stressful than braving the airport during the holiday travel season whether your with family or by yourself.

Golden Retrievers at Airports

In the hopes of combating some of that stress, United Airlines has organized visits from comfort dogs at its terminals in Chicago’s O’Hare airport and Houston’s George Bush airport, beginning Saturday.

“I’m glad that our flight isn’t delayed, but if it was, this would be so uplifting,” one passenger told ABC13 in Houston. “They’re so sweet!”

I personally think it is a great idea to have Golden Retrievers at the airports to help soothe angry passengers whose flights have been delayed.  Not to mention how much children can be entertained by patting a loving Golden Retriever to help relax there flying quirks.
