Barkley is such a gorgeous boy! Looks like he had a blast and such a beautiful day! I am terrible with the pictures. I am sure there is a reason why they turn but I cannot figure it out. As you can see
Do your Goldens love socks? I think Maggie's stash is getting out of control!
Maggie had a bath this morning. She must be losing her puppy fur because the slicker brush is getting full!
Happy Easter!
Jules

Growing pains?
Hi, my Chappie was born last October! He is almost 60 lbs already! He grew up Soooooo fast!! He was very lean until this month but eats like a horse! He finally started to appear thicker and not look like I never feed him lol.

My concern is He has been limping for a few weeks now. His vet thinks it's growing pains and so does the breeder. Does not recommend xrays. Just limit activity and tramadol. 2nd opinion vet did blood work, nothing there. Was looking for Lyme mainly. It comes and goes, or rather it's always sore to him but after mild activity he limps more obviously for the rest of the day. It's so hard to limit his activity. I just hate leaving him crated extensively. He is good in it but it breaks my heart to look at him looking at me with those pleading sad eyes! I feel like a bad mommy for not getting xrays. Or the pen Hip (sp?) Test. It sometimes appears his back end or hips are sore or whatbbly too, that's why I worry it could be dysplasia! But mainly it's his front right shoulder. He has even whines in pain a few times getting up or down, and hesitates to jump on furniture. Not as playful due to the pain. Should I get x-rays and pen Hip or is it safe to assume it's just growing pain? It breaks my heart to see him in pain 😢

Chappie looks so cute in his hat. My lab had this, vet said it was pano. We did give him a bit of rimadyl and he did outgrow it. We limited his activity when it seemed to bother him more.

Stuart has not develop a white nose, but a brown nose. Guessing it has something to do with the holes in the yard today.

Thanks Jules. How long did it last? Chappies has been limping going on 4 weeks, same days worse than others. It seems to hurt more right after he's been napping or after any extended activity like playing fetch in the pool for 5 minutes. Did your boy exhibit pain in a bone when putting pressure on it like pano usually does or was it hard to pinpoint the location of the pain?

Sounds just like what Cooper experienced. I think it lasted several months with him. Cooper is a huge, tall, field lab. Easily 29" at the shoulder. He had a lot of growing to do! I hope it doesn't last as long for Chappie

Had a great trail walk yesterday. Maggie's recall is getting better and she is doing a great job of running ahead and then checking in with me. We had our 2nd visit with the trainer and she had a wonderful session of leash walking and recall practice. Today we are going downtown to greet the first cruise ship of the season! Happy Sunday everyone.

First cruise ship of the season! What a wonderful socialization experience for Maggie. She was so wonderful. She didn't even jump on anyone

Love watching all these cuties grow up! It's been beautiful here in TN lately, so Franklin and I have spending more time outside. He tends to forget his own name when we're outdoors so I think I'm going to buy a long lead and use it to practice recall with distractions galore... sticks and birds and people and dogs...

Ha! Yes, all those wonderful things puppies love Franklin is looking so good. They are growing so fast!
I met some people off the ship today that said they had a 1 year old Golden. They said you either get a full on energy one or a placid one. They got the full on energy. I told them I got the placid one with Maggie Even as a puppy she is quite mellow.
