Kirby's mom says: This is Kirby, a three-year-old golden retriever. We got Kirby from a local breeder when he was about two months old and just a tiny ball of fur and puppy kisses. He was the first puppy to walk up to us and it was love at first sight, and he's been bringing love and laughter into our lives since then. Kirby loves going for walks and car rides, taking naps, being rubbed, getting attention, and meeting new people. His favorite toys are stuffed animals because he loves to play tug-of-war with them, and most of all he likes to pull all the stuffing out of them. Kirby knows lots of tricks and how to be very cute, which are talents he uses in trying to get us to give him whatever we're eating, particularly cheese, popcorn, and ice cream. (He usually succeeds.) Kirby is happiest when he is with his family, especially when all of us are together.
