I realized this morning that Murphy's tail feathers are finally coming in! IT's hard to see just how beautiful they are in this picture, but I just love them. It's crazy how fast all his adult fur is coming in, he seems to change a little everyday.

Do you play with them? I'm convinced everyone thinks I'm NUTS because I always play with them. They're so soft and pretty, though. I'll poke their buns and make funny noises too.

Ha ha yes I do! DH thinks I'm so weird! I just love the way they feel and the color of them!

Me too!! When I brush the dogs... the butt feathers and tail feathers are my favorite part.

In FACT, the way I was introduced to GRF was because I watched one of jwemt81's youtube videos of Tucker (this was when Mojo was really young, and still very much lab-looking. LOL) I messaged her asking how old he was when he got his tail feathers, and she told me about GRF!

Awww....he's turning into such a big boy! I just gave Tucker a bath yesterday and was noticing the same thing. He also has some crazy, wild, curly hair on his back also. Enjoy...I can't wait until their big, bushy tails come in.

I was so excited when Timber's tail started to come in too!
His just seem to come in overnight!!!
Here's a couple of pics of Timber's butt and tail feathers - taken at 1 yr old!
He's got a crazy coat for a year old.
My hubby likes to play with this tail :) I like to brush it :)
Not so much fun though when Tim poops in the deep snow and I have to clean the poop off :doh:
Ah, the joys of owning a Golden - but we wouldn't have it any other way :smooch:

Wow I hope Murphy's tail is as beautiful as the others on here! Although I'm not looking forward to poopy feathers, lol.

I am in love with Flip's baby feathering. I make everybody stop and look at it. I hope his comes in more like Conner's and not like Annabel's, whose is long and stringy and is impossible to comb out.

now I'm feeling guilty for getting Bridger's feathers trimmed -- think it'll be a 2x/yearly event. He keeps pretty clean, but picks up alotta stuff in the woods. Had a tail feather measurement of 14 inches ...... Obi's (RIP) tail remained a tidy length.

It won't be long now before you can begin to enjoy combing out the long, beautiful tail feathers on Murphy. He's a beautiful boy.

I love Sammy's butt and tail feathers!! Dillon's got much less feathering and fur in general.

Hank's tail feathers seemed to come overnight. Tail and butt feathers are my favorite part! This pic was taken earlier this week...
