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!

Double the fun today with two Goldens! It was a hot one today and Molson, Sasha, and I stayed in the shade and the cool grass as much as possible. There was a welcome water stop on the way and the pups ran into their old friend Maddie, whose mom had treats and toys to taste and play with. Every 10 minutes or so, it was time for a roll in the grass and a plea for a belly rub (well, ok, that was always a Molson request!). The two cousins were a joy to walk. They are so sweet, well behaved and did I mention very lovely. A gorgeous day to walk two gorgeous Goldens! The scoop: one poop each, two pees for Sasha, and many, many for Molson. Thanks!

It was really nice to take Sasha and Molson out together. I also had prospective DGR Runner Tara with me so it was officially a party. We went through the back woods of Lakeview enjoying our casual pace. Once we popped out on the green space, we ran into DGR Runner Nancy out with Marley. It is always fun to explain the family tree of these 3 related Golden Retrievers. As the saying goes, the more the merrier. A little bird also told me to expect another baby Golden Retriever in the near future. Well, this breed is definitely AWESOME! The Scoop: pees and poos by all. Thanks again to Tara for joining in the Golden fun!
