“Although our last two dogs were Labrador retrievers, our son Alan has a preference for golden retrievers. Like the labs, these goldens are wonderful family dogs. Alan and his family live in Nova Scotia, coincidentally in the same area my mother’s ancestors came from. We joined Alan’s family for a wonderful ‘down home’ Christmas. Since they live in a 200 year old farm house and believe in the tradition and the trimmings, we had a wonderful time. However, all good things must come to an end and when the festivities were over, the decorations were taken down and the tree put out on the porch. River is the name of their golden. Of course, he was always on the look out for any wildlife that might be out there, birds or squirrels. He is more interested in observing than catching. I, of course, was interested in trying to capture the silky fur of his coat.” – Robert Bateman
