5 Tons of Cuteness! Golden Fest 2014

5 Tons of Cuteness! Golden Fest 2014

z IMG_2729
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.

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.

Percy’s frist trip to the beach

Percy’s frist trip to the beach

Once upon a time on a Sunday afternoon (which also happened to be my sweet husband’s birthday) we took a little Golden Retriever to the beach. Although it was warm in the suburbs, the beach was windy and overcast and the water was reeeeallly cold! To top it off, there was something itchy in the… Continue Reading

Hannibal the Cannibal

Hannibal the Cannibal

Let me mention right now how much work an infant is… I’d forgotten how hard it really was. How little sleep you get when you have to eat and go potty 25 times in a 24 hour period.   Human baby or canine baby, it’s all the same. Instead of dirty diapers, we’re standing in… Continue Reading
