These are Golden Retrievers. Daddy's very light yellow and white, but Mama is pretty red. Here's Mama and her babies...Lab puppies are so cute! The essence of innocence.
LOL, as tempting as it might have been, we passed on the offer to take one. (My friend was trying really had to convince us.) We're both too old, tired, and crippled to deal with training a new puppy the right way and giving it the attention it needs. Also, our dog Sunny is an old man too, and he really prefers to be a solo act. It would wreck his world if we brought home a puppy. We turned down an offer for a free year-old Malinois a couple of years ago for the same reasons. That said, my wife and the runt of this litter bonded for sure. That's the one in the green basket, and it's also in the photo of my wife sitting on the lawn.) Fortunately, we'll get to watch some of them grow up. My bandmate Jeff owns the dad, and he's keeping one of the males. Jeff's sister will be taking one of the females. (She also owns another Golden that was a pup from a litter Jeff had a few years ago.) Sue, the owner of the mom, is keeping one or two as well. And Jeff dog-sits for his sister and Sue from time to time, so we'll be able to watch them all grow up.When your wife is having a play with them, watch the closely. One of them will pick your wife.
Reminds me of the J Geils band "Love Stinks"The owner of the mommy dog sent us a photo this morning of a little gift that LOML's favorite puppy (the runt of the litter) left for her.
