I just love it when people tell me how Goldens are so sweet, gentle, and laid back. Rusty is typical Golden Retriever in that he LOVES everybody, and he doesn't have a "mean" bone in his body. And he's HAPPY! He's just the happiest damned critter you ever saw. However, "laid back" appears nowhere on his resume. I call him the "Red Rocket" because he's got a reddish coat and he moves very fast. And also because of....the other thing.Training? Whats that? I thought behaved dogs just came out of a box that way.
