Talking The official "Rolling In It" thread

Many of our lovely Goldens like to roll in things, like grass, leaves, dirt, mud, puddles or snow (and hopefully nothing less agreeable). I thought there might be a plethora of amusing photos on this topic that we could share.

I'll start. This was Toby yesterday afternoon:


Now let's see your Golden boys and girls "rolling in it"!

Great picture of your boy rolling in the snow, looks like he was totally enjoying himself.

Here's a picture of my girl Roxy doing one of her most favorite things in life- rolling in the sand and marsh grass at the little beach at the end of my street. She loves to flop around and roll in the sand almost as much as she loves swimming.

We rarely get snow here, not sure if my guys would know what they're suppose to do with it.

I think you've hit the jackpot with this thread...what a great idea...who hasn't seen their golden roll in at least something. Woody loves a good roll in the snow, or on the lawn after a good meal, or a tennis ball, or a nice fresh pile of just about any kind of POOP, dead fish on the bank are another favorite or how about an egg?

Great idea for a thread...this should be fun...I'll have to see if I can dig some pictures up...

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.

I can almost guarantee you they'd know EXACTLY what to do!

That's a GREAT shot of Tucker Steve...pure pleasure...didn't get the video on my iPad unfortunately.

LOL, Pete! I hope you do dig out some photos of Woody rolling in something, but perhaps not that.

Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

I just went through all my online pictures that are available at the moment and didn't have any uploaded of the infamous roll...I've taken several but unfortunately they're on my desk top PC which I can't get to at the moment but I'll see if maybe later I can make it over there.

And yes please keep 'em coming...they're really all wonderful
