Lola was not that impressed......

She did perk up bit after sharing a piece of turkey bacon with him this morning. He should be going to the vet for a weigh-in this week.....I think he'll probably tip the scales a little over 50 lbs.

Pretty cute pups! Amazing how quickly they get big! Our pup (whose food intake we monitor by the ounce) turned 5 months yesterday and is 42 pounds. Can feel the ribs (not see them) but he is growing like a weed.
I think Lola needs a cake for putting up with a pup.

Murphy went to the vet for a weigh-in today and he's up to 54 wiggly lbs....yep, still with the wiggly lbs 'cause he just can't stand still on the scale. He has recently started being more of a chewer so we've put up the stuffies and other soft toys. We're sticking with things he can chew on but not chew up. He and Lola have been suggling a bit in the evenings lately.

My daughter came home from college this morning. When she got home, she and Murphy needed to run up to the school where my wife teaches and deliver......something. Apparently Murph chauffeured and I'm told he's a very safe driver....uses his turn signals and everything....... Car Vehicle Dog Motor vehicle Window

Now for the rest of the story....when Murphy and my daughter went to school yesterday, they got to join my wife's 1st grade class on the playground for recess. I'm thinking this was a pre-planned "I need you to bring me something " kind of visit. Murphy also got to meet the 2nd grade class on the way back to the car(my wife's class from last year). My girls said he was very well-behaved and loved meeting all the kids.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...........

I've seen multiple threads on the forum started by people who wanted a velcro dog to snuggle with and felt like the dog they ended up having was aloof or indifferent. I don't think we have that problem........

Golden retrievers are the cutest puppies…… then they turn into the largest snugglers of snugglement…. Whether you want them lying across your lap or not….whether you want them crushing your feet as they snore contently and you attempt to sleep around their sprawling mass.

We've had 5 goldens. All 5 have been snugglers to some degree.....a perfect score, right? But these 2 are the snuggliest of the bunch. I love that they want to be with us and close to us. When you have dogs as companions, that's how it should be.

Trying to convince our son that carrying the 43 pound puppy is not such a great idea- as it really doesn’t work when they are 70lbs+
