Just lovely RJ ~ you have so many beautiful captures of your retriever .. I had a golden lab who was gentle too (now sadly passed) but they are wonderful companions :) #6200783

R. J. Laudenbacher 7/20/2008 7:35:30 AM

Thank you Susie. My young Golden pictured so many times seems to be with me everytime I go out to take pictures and she seems to end up in the pictures. She is killing my Macro's but it is worth it. The Golden in this picture has VERY SADLY passed away and is greatly missed. #6200823

Don't know how I missed this one...give Kodie a hug! My St. Bernard passed away July 5th and my Newfoundland is still so lost.. I have been having to sleep with her every night. I also love Goldens.. Our neighbor has one and when it thunders, she comes through our doggie door an spends the night. lol #8848254
