And helped to make this the best golden retriever forum on the Internet!!! Thank You!!!

And I hope you win the certainly deserve it!


Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
