Paw Prints on our Hearts

On November 19, 2014 we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy, Quincey. We lost him to Cancer. He was only 7 years old, and we were lucky enough to be his family for 5 of those years. He may be gone now, but his paw prints will forever be on our hearts.

Quincey was more than just our dog, he was truly a member of our family and my best friend. He was there to welcome my husband and I home after our wedding, and after the births of both of our daughters (that he was so gentle and kind to). He was always there – at the door when I came home, by my feet when I worked, by my bed when I slept, at my chair when I ate – always there with his sweet smile and love to give. It’s been nearly five months since he passed, but I’m still not used to him being gone.

Quincey inspired us to start this blog, and create “Golden Retriever Day” (which falls on February 3rd, his birthday).

We know many of you have gone through this difficult loss – please share your memories with us.

A wine that supports animal adoption? Yes please!

Our friends at ONEHOPE Wine just released a new California Pinot Noir (they are calling “Pinot for Paws”) where every case sold helps a homeless animal find its forever home through the ASPCA. How cool is that?


We first tried it at one of our favorite local restaurants, and loved it so much we purchased a case! It’s such a fun wine to give as gifts and take it to dinner parties (since, like us, all of our friends are obsessed with their four-legged children!). Like them on facebook and share your pet pictures with them using #PinotforPaws on Facebook & Instagram.

Thank you ONEHOPE for making it easier than ever to help our furry friends! Cheers!!



Easter-treat Hunt for your Pups

When the Easter bunny comes to your house, make sure he leaves behind some treats for your pups! It’s a family tradition we do every year – really easy to do and fun to watch!

Step 1: Take their favorite cookie treat, and break it up into smaller bite size pieces

Step 2: Dip each piece in a bit of peanut butter

Step 3: Show them their plate of treats before you hide them – they will go crazy!

Step 4: Without your pup(s) watching, have the “Easter Bunny” hide the treats all over your yard

Step 5: The hunt begins!

Happy International #GoldenRetrieverDay 2013!!

From our home to yours – Happy International #GoldenRetrieverDay!! What are you doing today to celebrate? Here are some of our tips!

Wow, how lucky for all of our pups that it falls on the Super Bowl this year! I’m sure they’ll get a lot of extra snacks today.

Enjoy the day everyone!!

Happy New Year! Cheers to 2013!

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone has a wonderful time celebrating 2012 with your goldens! Remember to keep your pups safe and inside at night – fireworks, firecrackers, etc. can spook them and cause them to flee! Also, be sure to turn on a TV or two to distract them.

It’s been an incredible year for our family – as we welcomed a (two-legged) baby into our family! Our two goldens have been wonderful with her – Goldens are truly the perfect family dog!

What was your favorite memory from 2012? What are you looking forward to in 2013?
