Golden Retrievers, among other related breeds, were once used as gundogs, which means they would retrieve (fancy that) waterfowl and game birds that their owners had shot. “But that seems silly,” we hear you say. “Letting a dog put his slobbery mouth all over a recently deceased duck seems like an extraordinarily bad idea. Not to mention a good way to for the human hunter to lose his recently-shot dinner.”
Of course if Daffy had had his way, it’d be Bugs that your faithful hound would be bringing to you. Unfortunately, for as much as we love Daffy, he’s a little…well…daffy. Case in point – “Rabbit season, fire!” But see, the difference is that Goldens and their similarly-utilized cousins, the Spaniels were bred to have soft mouths. Hard mouthed dogs were bred to bite down into whatever it is they got between their jaws. Soft mouthed dogs on the other hand, have been trained to ignore that instinct and ‘not’ bite down and thus ruin their owner’s dinner.
Retrievers are one of the smartest dog breeds, which means they’re easy to train, and they are both loyal and eager to please. If you fancy yourself a dog lover who wants a dear friend and sweet-tempered pal to play with, you could do worse than the Golden. Melissa and Doug bring the fun and loving personality of the Golden to life with their huge 36-inch long, 31-inch tall Golden plush. With his long, luxuriously thick coat, he’s as soft and snuggly as the real thing.
