What do you get when you put a large litter of one-year-old golden retrievers near a wading pool? Wet! Last weekend, a litter of eleven golden retrievers (a majority of which attended) returned to their birthplace for a littermate reunion/picnic/pool party.
This was the first littermate reunion/picnic/pool party that I had ever attended, so I didnâ€™t know what to expect. I bathed and brushed my golden, packed her blanket and a chew toy and off we went. The drive was close to an hour. Excitement was in the air coupled with wonder. Would the goldens remember each other? Would they look alike? Would they get along or would they pick on each other? Watch the video below and you decide!
Heartfelt thanks to:
All the littermate parents for the fabulous food
Kate and Meg for the agility demonstration
The groomer who gave us grooming tips and the littermates pawdicures
And to Pat and Cheri Goggin of BitterSweet Golden Retrievers for opening their home to us, for all the littermate gifts, food, hospitality and constant support theyâ€™ve given us since the day we came to view the litter until now. We know that we can count on their support in the years to come as we strive to raise our beautiful, healthy and happy golden retrievers. Pat and Cheri love what they do and it shows!

What are we doing? We are sending a gift to a new puppy or adult dog that wags a tail and warms a dog owner’s heart! Why do we do it? We do it because Americans love dogs!
With more than 77.5 million dogs in U.S. households, everyone knows someone who owns a dog. Why are dogs so popular? They illustrate perfect friendship.
Dogs are loyal companions, offering unconditional love. They create enjoyment and give us a sense of purpose. They are silent counselors, patient and willing to listen. Dogs are genuine and not judgmental. Dogs are not catty (no pun intended). They do not pretend to listen all the while examining your face for flaws and your body for extra poundage. Dogs play games, but not that way.
So when birthdays and special occasions come around, we refuse to forget our bffs (beloved furry friends). We celebrate special friendships canine style. We give a dog a gift.
Who buys gifts for dogs? Most dog owners do, and the occasions get more creative by the year.
Puppy showers Dog adoption celebrations Dog birthdays Get well occasions (spay, neuter, operation) Back to obedience school Holidays Vacations and spa days Just Because days
We buy for our dogs and our grand-dogs; for neighbors with new pups or those with sick pups. We send dog gifts to out-of-town friends and relatives. We give a dog a gift because it is fun! We give a dog a gift because in its uniqueness it brings unforgettable joy to both owner and pup. We give a dog a gift in celebration of perfect friendship. And that is something to woof about!
