5 Tons of Cuteness! Golden Fest 2014

G.R.E.A.T. Golden Retriever rescue of N.E. Florida held their annual benefit at Dogwood Park in Jacksonville this weekend.  We have been looking forward to this event all year because where else can you see a concentration of this much fluffy cuteness? And who doesn’t love a Golden Retriever? Or two? Or seventy-five?

One of the highlights of the day was the ice cream truck…full of doggie ice cream! With flavors like peanut butter bacon or sweet potato pie, there was a flavor to suit all taste buds and Air Buds.

Our boy had to be held back because he kept stealing other people’s ice cream.

But Goldens are a sharing bunch, and so are their owners, so he reaped the benefit of his friend’s generosity.

The doggie ice cream business is  locally owned company right here in Jacksonville. Alex, owner and proprietor of Luckee Dog K9 Kool Treats, was telling me that he will have product for sale in several of our local pet stores soon. His website is currently under construction, but I’ll be checking back to get a list of his locations. Percy loved his peanut butter bacon ice cream today!

This adorable little 5-month-old girl is the same age that our boy was last year at Golden Fest. She is just so cute and made us so nostalgic for those sweet fluffy puppy days! Well, maybe not nostalgic for the chewing. But nostalgic for all the rest.

Let them eat cake! The owners, that is.
