Because we believe in education, National Purebred Dog Day feels that it’s not particularly helpful if we only show you what’s acceptable in the world of breed standards, and never what’s not acceptable.  Sometimes there’s a really good reason why a trait is forbidden in a breed often having to do with soundness.

Hike break!  This picture takes me back to an almost identical scene with our late golden, Myah.  After a summer day of hiking in the mountains of Colorado, a shorter trek with her new leg, battling osteosarcoma, Myah decided to not just play in the creek a bit, but to lay down and bask in the sunshine and cool her tummy in the snow melt creek.  She taught all that met her the true meaning of life.
