Goldie likes to have her belly scratched.... ...any place in the house is a good place to be scratched. She loves to go for walks...this is on a trail near Forks. Goldie is a very peaceful rider in the car.  She likes to rest her head on the back window of the Subaru.

The neighbor dogs sometimes come over to  play. She loves tennis balls!

We spent a sunny summer afternoon on the Humptulips River up by Campbell Tree Grove. Goldie wasn't deterred by the very cold water.   After a long fetching session, some pats feel pretty good!

  Beautiful trees at the Campbell Tree Grove campground.    

When a co-worker relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, we became foster parents to Goldie, a ten-year-old Retriever mix.   She's adapted well to her new surroundings, and we're delighted to have a dog in the house again.  Goldie has a very mellow disposition.  It's been a long time since we've been able to take a dog on a walk around the property without being constrained by a leash!

Here are some pictures from her first couple of weeks in our house.

She's a happy dog! And she likes to sleep! Everywhere Goldie goes, you'll find at least one tennis ball. I took her to the Humptulips River to fetch tennis balls.  She had a good time, but was sacked out on the trip home.

This is the East Hoquiam River at Bob & Betsy's. Goldie waits for me to throw for her - you can see two of her tennis balls near her.   Zep and Goldie enjoyed running through the river and field on this hot day

There's always time for a snooze in the sun
