My parents have two golden retrievers, Savannah and Apollo. Since we only live three houses away we're over there quite a bit and we've basically claimed Apollo as our dog. We are the only ones who usually take him out for a walk or play with him. Oh and he adores Avery! Any time Ave leaves he'll just stare out the window looking longingly after him. He is also the cuddliest dog. He'll just lay his head next to me while we watch tv and not even move. He's only about 1 1/2 years old so still a baby but Ave's trained him well, he's a great dog. Ave even got him to ride on the back of his tiny four wheeler without jumping off. We drove clear out into the dunes, over and around and he just layed his head on Ave's lap.
We took Savannah out as well but she was being naughty so the boys and I buried her. =)
I took off after a day, and spent the night watching chick flicks... hehehe. Much better.
But now we're back to school and work and normal routines.
