I’ve always liked golden retrievers.
They’re just so quintessentially cute and happy.
Also I like the idea of being able to throw things and have someone go get them for me.
So to begin or end your day on a happy note–here’s a roundup of what I’m declaring the world’s happiest dog.
1. Head skritches ellict all the smiles
Don’t believe me? Try it yourself.
2. But belly rubs are even better
I believe this is called perfect zen.
I saw this adorable golden retriever at the park recently 🙂 from aww
3. They love their people from day 1
And they have so very much love to give.
Picked up Libby 7 weeks ago, this was her on our way home the first day. She is staring at my girlfriend. They are in love. from goldenretrievers
4. And they will never stop showing you just how much
Their love is real and pure and boundless, much like their energy.
5. They also love kittens
I mean look at them!
6. And they are very patient when meeting new friends
That fawn looks like it’s minutes old! Good boy.

7. They also love each other
Aww, little buddies!
8. And they bond for life
Look at the ❤️ their feet make!!!

9. They’re also HIGHLY trainable!
Look at this good doggo’s own seeing eye dog!
This is Charlie and Maverick. Charlie had his eyes removed due to glaucoma, but then Maverick came along as his little helper. Now they’re doing amazing. Both 14/10 pic.twitter.com/qjkhYLihEO

10. This little buddy knows how to get what he wants
And he waits so patiently too!
(Also the reason I will never drink from a public fountain!)

12. But most of all, these silly pups just want to have fun
Even if it means interrupting their sister’s photoshoot…

13. Because they really are photogenic
And they know it!

14. But they know when it’s time to get serious
“Speak softly and carry a big stick…”
If it was good enough for the Old Lion Teddy Roosevelt, who can argue?
Out of the Serengeti forest comes a rare golden elk. What impressive antlers. Hard to balance.
He's headed into the wilds of the back porch.

15. And they know when to get together for a palaver

16. They learn fast
By seeing and doing.
My six-month-old puppy learned how to walk down the stairs by watching her brother.
Her brother only has three legs.

18. But whether they’re goofing around
With their big boopable noses.
19. Or just being your BFF for TWENTY YEARS
My gosh, what a noble looking fellow!
