Simon the Golden Retriever

Puppy Breed: Golden Retriever

Despite what the neighbors may think, we don't add Miracle Grow to Simon's puppy food. At 7 months old, he has already reached 75 pounds and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon! Simon is a very smart and super goofy nonstop flurry of energy. He loves to spend his days "gardening" with his dad, collecting rocks and stones, "playing" with his older Golden Retriever sister, Lexi, and trying to win the affection of his feline brother and sister, Rufus and Mugsy. Having no concept of how big he has become, Simon still squeezes into his favorite (and seemingly most uncomfortable) sleeping spot--wrapped around and wedged between the toilet and our bathroom walls. As Simon continues to grow, we are keeping our fingers crossed that our house doesn't soon become Old Faithful!
