He's never been a minutes trouble all his life he's been kind to every dog that has come into our home, he's loyal, child friendly licking everyone that comes in, he doesn't chase sheep, once a lamb went up to him to suckle thinking he was its mother but could tell when it got up close to him, he's just like a huge cuddley bear, he's white and heis a Golden Retriever. He suffers with arthritis and decided last year not to take him to the groomer any more, he's nearly eleven years old, I didn't want to put him through the ordeal again because he takes so long to dry. My grandchildren used to ride on him when they were toddlers and he would let them do anything to him. I HAVE NEVER TRUTHFULLY heard him snarl or growl at anything or body in fact he seldom barks, I know that the time we have with him is now limited and I very often check to see if he is breathing because all our other goldies lived to just over 9 years old, everyone loves Louis and I hope that there will be many many years to come that we have him in our lives.

    We had a magnetic collar for our setter when he became old and stiff, it did seem to help him stay mobile.
