Best Reasons To Own a Golden Retriever
A Golden Retriever Is The Best Family Dog
Your Golden will be your new best friend. Mine is and I'm the luckiest dog owner. I love my dogs to pieces and would do anything for my dogs. I have (2) golden retrievers and let me tell you, they are the best breed to ever own. If you want unconditional love and faithfulness, these are the kind of dogs to get. They are both equally loved, just two different personalities.
I've had a few health issues over the past years and my dogs follow me everywhere in the house. In fact, as I sit here on the couch writing this, I have one at one end of the couch, and the other on the floor next to me.
I guess I was wondering if anyone else out there has an opinion on whether or not they think their dogs love them? Better yet, do you think your dog knows how much YOU love THEM?
I believe my dogs love me unconditionally and I honestly think they know how much I love them. They have that certain look in there eye that lets me know they love. Daddy is for playing with and rolling on the floor, and mom is for taking care of me. Each Golden has a personality like no other. It's like their a person, and I'm not overstating this. A Golden is so dedicated and wants to please you. All they require besides the normal food and medical needs and exercise, is Pure Love. That's it, nothing else. Just love. They practically beg for it 24 hours a day. They will not leave your side and they have to be touching you in some sort of way, even if its their foot, it will be touching you. Their love and affection is like no other and is total unconditioned. Please remember this: it doesn't matter whether you have a Golden Retriever or a pet fly, all animals need love and attention just like you do.
Golden Retriever and Other Dog Problems
There are a couple of things you need to be aware of, not just with Goldens. This is for any dog,and I am sharing the information as a dog owner. Be aware of hot spots from flea bites and large dog owners especially, need to be watchful of dog elbow calluses. Both of that information can read on my other articles found below:

Adopt A Golden Retriever
Adopting a Golden will be the best small investment you will ever make. I would hate to see a Golden puppy put down because of an irresponsible owner that didn't get them spade or neutered and could not adopt one out. They aren't that expensive as pups. You could get a registered Golden in the paper for $300 to $400. Make sure you just don't adopt a Puppy of any kind, not just a Golden, from anyone. Any person can sell a litter of pups! It's not hard to let your animals do all the work and you just put them in the paper for sale. Make sure to go to the breeder's home and look at the surroundings and get paper work for shots and anything else to make sure they have taken care of the pup.
I love my dogs and I hope if you have animals, you love them too. It breaks my heart to see the animal cruelty on television and I look at my dogs and wonder how anyone can ever abuse an animal as I believe they know if you don't want them. If you don't love your animal, then please put it in the paper for a small amount of money like 10 dollars or take it to a no kill animal shelter. The animal is better off and has a better chance at life if you take him to someone else.
A dog needs 3 things in life:
The rest is just common sense. Play with them, get them medical attention if needed and don't abuse them. Most of all, truly love them. Don't just get a dog and throw them in the backyard with a fence around it and let them stay outside all day/night or in a dog house to live.
