Teresa, I am glad you have that photo in your signature. It was the first thing I've noticed when I joined the forum and love it so much.

I think those photos of Copper with the quilt are just the quintessential golden retriever! You can just see the love, the joy, and the SENSE OF HUMOR that these guys have all over Copper's face!

Unfortunately we now celebrate Toby and Copper at Rainbow bridge.

Those boys were full of mischief and fun and love, but although they fought hard, time and age caught with them. All fox snakes and box turtles at rainbow bridge are surely being harassed on a daily basis.

Toby must have had that mischievous sense of humor too. Between the fox snakes and the fake squirrel I still get grins from him.

I don't spend much time on the puppy section of the forum, but I noticed that a lot of people are lamenting the puppy antics. Chewing, digging, barking, not listening, the usual puppy stuff.
I sit here misty eyed wishing I could have just a few more days of puppy antics with my Toby. Their lives pass so fast. I want to tell the puppy people to be patient, to try to enjoy every minute, because in such a short time, you are wishing you had the time back again.

So true - those very antics and misbehavours help define what we will most miss when they are gone; laughing at their play, teaching them their manners enjoying their complete lack of restraint - thank you for posting your thoughts.

So true. I remember my neighbor saying she didn't understand how I could train my horse and not my dogs. It is because I generally thought Copper's escapades were funny.

I still picture Toby with a big snake and cringe for sure! I love the mischievous ones when they do the "bad" things with a big old grin and how I miss that. Copper even knoew what a goodwill bag smelled like and would get so excied because he knew there were ratty stuffies in there for him to destroy.

I sure do miss our crew from back then.

I think we all miss HRH, Barb. And you!

When our Sunny is a bratty girl at 2.5 years old, I remind myself how soon age will slow her pace and how much I'll miss her antics. Wish we could make them immortal!

As do I, they sure were something else with all their antics and character.

That is so true, I always meant to get a good quality picture of Ginny Holly and Ralph so I could get their portraits painted, but I never got round to it and suddenly it was too late - they had gone to the bridge.
