December Photo Contest

Our November winner, General V, has chosen a lovely theme for December. As we all know, our Goldens are bundles of love and make great therapy dogs, and they are especially good with the very young and the old, so our theme for December is:

"May to December"

Let's see those photos of all our Goldies spreading the love to young and old, and carrying their sunshine where it is needed most - be it in a hospital, a nursing home, or with the younger or older members of your own family.

As always, you must have 25 posts to enter, and if you have already won in the current calendar year, you are not eligible. Please attach your photos rather than linking from a member album, as the latter are not visible to many of us. We will take entries until Sunday, December 23rd.

Good luck!

My rescue dog, Amber Rose visiting her great grandma at her nursing home in White Rock, BC. All of the residents at the nursing home gather round when I walk in with both Goldens.

Here is Riley with my 2 year old Nephew Grady. Grady was going to give Riley a kiss. I love how both their eyes are closed!

Cosmo has not been safe around the fragile since he was 4 months old, haha. BUT he has helped rehabilitate MANY undersocialized and fearful shelter puppies. Here he is hanging with one of his pupils, Bandit.
