Golden Retrievers Cheering the Soul|
Life can be a difficult course, as there are no guarantees. And, yet, what would our world be like without laughter and love? They are actually important means for survival, and there could be no better teachers than our dogs. Their living life with wild abandon and smiling from morning to night is the safest and best prescription available.
Alan Conway, explains it so well when speaking about his beloved Guide Dog
Perkins: "Perkins has been known to run laps through the house before
flopping down on the floor, head first and rolling around as if to tell me how
much he enjoys just being silly. I can have the worst possible day at work, but
he sure knows how to turn things around."
And, Golden lover and rescuer, Wendy Young, shares her
Izzy's instructions to a Golden dude on how to take possession of the couch from
"First, go over and lay your head on his lap or tummy. Be sure
you look very sleepy with droopy eyes. Sighing deeply will help your cause. If
all your Dad does is pet your head and tell you what a sweet boy you are, go on
to step two."
"If step one fails, jump up on the couch and stand over your
dad. Pant heavily
while standing over him. Drip a little doggie drool on him, it might make him
get up to wipe it off. If not, before he tells you to get down, go to step 3."
"Lay down on top of him, flip over on your back and wiggle down between him and
the back of the couch. A few pushes and ta-da, Dad is on the floor. Don't worry
too much about the glares and few choice words your Dad will have to say. He
will get over it very quickly. Squeeze your eyes shut and pretend you went
instantly to sleep."
"Chances are he will look at you and start talking about how
sweet you look sleeping on the couch, run for the camera, take your picture and
post it at the Land of PureGold for all to see. This works every time for me."
