Happy Golden Retriever Day! (belated)

Apparently February 3d was “Golden Retriever Day” and I didn’t realize it till late last night. Goldens make great dogs for Republicans. President Gerald Ford had one, named Liberty. And though I have a sneaking suspicion that most of them are “Yellow Dog Democrats,” they enhance any suburban McMansion.

The photo above is Henry, who came to us from Adopt A Golden Atlanta, whom we support and from whom our next Golden will most likely be adopted. A lifelong Republican, Henry died on November 8, 2011, election day.

Adopt A Golden is a worthy charity if you’re interested in donating, and you could find no better place to adopt a rescued Golden Retriever, or the occasional Great Pyrenees. You can also check them out on Facebook, where many of their adoptive families posted photos of their Goldens.

    Good info . Golden’s have been our family choice of breed over generations. They are a piece of work going through their terrible two’s. They are all demanding Democrats by nature.

    Loyalty test: lock you Golden and your wife in the trunk of your Porsche for thirty minutes, then let them out and see who is thrilled to see you.

    90 days after the loyalty test, see who owns the Porsche and has custody of the Golden.
