My son and fellow DGR runner and pet sitter (Ryan) & I had a blast doing some tag team pet sitting at Golden Central. This pack is comprised of Golden Retriever siblings Sasha and Molson and new pup Ryder. They are probably some of the sweetest doggies I know. Sasha has her special spot by the fireplace and she also loves head scratches. She may seem meek but from time to time, she will let Ryder know she is the boss. Molson steals my hearts as we have had years of walking/running together from time to time. He is a huge fan of belly rubs and his toys. He also is a pretty patient older brother to Ryder. They had so many wrestling moments until Ryder grabs his tail and Molson comes to hide behind me. The youngest pack member Ryder is one beautiful pup and pretty chill except when he wants to chew on Molson or try to see if he can eat Molson and Sasha's food. I had sporadic visits with this crew while Ryan spent the bulk of the time with them. I loved my walks and chill Netflix or Crave watching with the pooches. Thanks for the Golden fix!

Molson and I took it slower this morning - more walking than usual. Once we got going he was alright for about 20 minutes but then became very reluctant to continue and just decided to stop. I don’t want to push him if he his not feeling well or he is just feeling his age. He is such a great guy so slow and steady was today's game plan! The Scoop: 4 pees, 1 poo.

I arrived to a house full of dogs and Molson was in the midst of Sasha and Ryder. Molson was happy to be out on his own and had lots of visits on the dog path with a pair of Black Labs and a Poodle to say hello to. A quick stop to get a friendly pat and we were off home. The Scoop: 4 pees, 2 poos.

This was the most vocal I have ever seen Molson. I am pretty sure he is just a little jealous of his new buddy (baby brother) who is getting lots of attention. We played in the backyard for 20 minutes, Ryder had some water and peed. Then, Molson and I were off for our run. We said a quick hello to Ryder to finish the trip.
