A Guiding Philosophy
LIVE LOVE LAUGH and LEARN forms the central theme and structure of our

Live and Learn

See Loyalty at Work . .
And, Love and Laugh.
The lessons these furry angels teach us are never
ending, so inspiring a new respect, appreciation, and celebration of life. For
that reason, we encourage folks to share their own
tales of discovery.
Dr. Schoen very wisely reminds us, "Far from a luxury, pets are now recognized as a necessity—friends who fortify us daily with their gifts of love, loyalty and laughter."
Yet, our shared affinity for Golden Retrievers is noted in his special adage, "G-d made dogs and then when he perfected them, he created Goldens."
