It must be weird being a Golden Retriever 🐶

Honestly, though.

I feel like they are the most-loved of dogs, that we all instinctively find ourselves looking at them when we pass them in the street and wanting to say hi.

Reckon that must be odd for them too. Imagine just going through life being constantly validated like that?

When I’m walking down the street and there’s a dog outside a café, if it’s a retriever that old dog just does not move aside for you. Other dogs see people coming and get out the way but golden retrievers seem to assume you love them and just want to see them.

I assume this is what everyday life is like for the most wholesomely attractive people.

People love dogs unconditionally but attractive people will often get the sexual undercurrent that taints the purity IMO

Of the other largeish dog breeds, they’re the most likely to decide they want to sit on your lap in my experiance. Good lads.

You sure it’s not one of those charity donation bins in the shape of a dog.

Did you know that the “golden” part of the name isn’t about their coat colour?

It refers to their pure, beautiful hearts.

Is the only difference between a Labrador and a golden retriever just fluffiness?
