Kobe's birthday is in a couple of weeks! He went through a carpet destroying spree a couple months ago. Since then, I've moved to Nevada and we don't have much carpet. The little carpet we do have he leaves alone. He will still jump on counters and grab papers and eat the trash out of the bathroom, but he is coming along. He is still super active but is getting more mellow.

We just adopted Lola a week ago- she was born on August 17th 2010. The previous owner did not have time for her- and no training - thus she was and is a wild child. I will enjoy sharing info with you who have the same age golden. Lola has a very sweet personality and no aggression and she is smart- so hopefully she will take to training well.

Welcome! Our chili spent 5 months in training classes and learned plenty, the most important being "it's only worth it if there is a treat to trump whatever I really want to do". We've sought the counsel of a behaviorist, and she's helped us make remarkable progress in the three consultations we've had. A word of warning, they may not subscribe to the positive reward - treat based training protocols most people use these days. I have an E collar sitting next to me that will go on next week when we have our next consultation and our dog walker has called me three times out of concern over this tactic! BUT, as unpleasant as it is, we've found the unpleasantness is usually very brief and once he learns, it's only there for reinforcement should it be necessary. My point is, if you've got a wild child that's smart, I'm sure with the right guidance you can turn that around in a matter of months. Or you could spend the next few years spinning your wheels trying to work with her...only to discover years later she's been training you all along!

So how are all the August 2010 puppies doing today?? Lola is such a joy in our lives... Born August 17,2010. She is about a year and a half old now.... so full of life- joy and just plain happiness. Loves her toys!( she has two baskets of them now) Her favorite thing to do is to try to pick up two or three at a time. We call it her"sandwich". She is smarter that a whip and knows how to get what she wants.... but all in all she is a good girl. She LOVES to fetch a ball or a frisbie- and collects EVERYTHING in the yard she can find... rocks sticks- you name it Lola will find it! I can not imagine life without her in our house today.
And how about YOU?

I don't know if I have written in this thread or not. Our Sasha was born Aug.4,2010. Friends here at GRF arranged for us to be blessed with this beautiful boy after we lost our Selka.

Sasha has been through almost two years of Obedience training but we haven't decided whether to put a CD on him or not. Too busy with daily life.

He and his big bro Gunner are best buds and they both keep me company. Some day he may be a therapy dog like Selka. We'll see.

Included recent pics of Sasha and Gunner (Gunner has one eye due to losing from having glaucoma)

Almost time for another birthday! Number 3! Lola is just the light of our lives! A wonderful dog who just gives love and happiness to the world. I am so grateful Lola came into our lives.

You know, it's amazing how much changes from year to year! 2 years ago we had a healthy golden. 1.5 years ago some strange issues started to crop up. After that he couldn't hold food down and gradually lost about a pound a week. A year ago we found out he had Megaesophagus and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The first 3 weeks on his new diet he lost 5 pounds and was down near 50 lbs (barely enough energy to make the walk for his bathroom breaks). And now at birthday #3, he's topped 75 lbs and my wife won't listen to me when I tell her we need to cut back on his food just a little to keep his weight in check. Below is a pic in his bailey (feeding) chair. Meanwhile he continues to get himself into trouble for reasons we still don't understand. He swallowed a tennis ball which required a visit to the vet, almost ate a potential pet sitters dog toy, and just days ago swallowed a plastic bag somewhere on the street while out with the dog walker (waiting for that one to be evacuated on it's own).

Hope all yours are healthy and happy! Happy Birthday to all of them!

Sadie turned three on the 5th and I had a short post about crying at the beginning as she was so wild and bitey and about her being the cutest smartest prettiest (blah blah blah you get where Im going with this) love bug ever at 3.

Hugs to all 3 year olds!!

PS Brown noses rule, thought Sadies would turn back to black over the summer but nope.
