I need to stay off facebook...really. I answered the call for a home for this 8 year golden, never dreaming that all of the golden retriever lovers out there in facebook land did not have a place for this sweetie, but lo & behold she needed a home & after 2 weeks on facebook she came to live with us.
Her mommy went to live in an assisted living home & couldn`t take her. Donna still drives & has been here to see Susie & I am glad that they can be together here.
This is my first at having a golden. I`ve always loved them. But there are things I did not know that they could do.
Example....did you know that the golden retriever can hide stuff in their jowls? Like dead animals?! The first time she brought in a dead animal, I did not know it. She came inside, went to her gigantic dog bed, & when little toy poodle, Chloe, went over to have a sniff at her bed, she growled. I scolded her saying it is not nice to do that & I won`t put up with it. She hung her head , got out of her bed & dropped some dead creature at my feet. I screamed, everyone scattered, & I was able to take her gift out to the trash. Since then there have been 4 more of these "gifts." I am working on having her "smile" at me before I allow her to come inside the house now.Because she can sure hide things in the sides of her mouth...
