My dog duke looks just like him when he was that age we were told that he was a lab mixed with chow. There are some days he looks like a lab and some he looks like a chow, but then he has spots on him that neither dogs have so we are not sure. I would really love to find out what he is.
This golden mix looks like our last dog, and he was part golden, part collie and there was always something else, and it wasn't until 2 different people mentioned this, I added it to his mix. The third part was chow... His years may come up more, your dog looks just like our Cody... (keep in mind this is when my Cody was 13 yrs old...

I got my very best friend after my first husband left me. She was 11 months when I got her and wasn't even house-broken! Now she is just about the smartest dog I have ever known, and she is just as sweet as she is cute.

Editor's Note: Here is an update on Diseal's health.
Diseal is doing great, he has recovered very well. The vet said he was fully recovered and he will be receiving his next set of shots in two weeks. He is just as playful as ever.
OMG! how precious is your fur-baby. He is just the cutest. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him. I know he will be a great family member for many years to come. Good luck

RIP Sheba. It is with a heavy Heart to report my beloved Sheba has passed away. She was a week from her 15th birthday. She was the sweetest and most lovable pet I've ever owned.
She would let the cats crawl all over her, small kids slobber on her and never once growl or get upset. She loved the lake and going for walks everyday. She's been around for so long our home seems so empty. I will miss her dearly.
It's a tear jerker I know. Our best friends don't live very long, however, remember remember all the good times. You would never have had if your friend never came into your life.
Beethoven just turned one. He is a St.Bernard and Golden retriever mix that I got a year ago at the pound after my Akita died. I wanted some company since I am disabled. He loves water and running after deer, but never too close.
Abbey was the second drive-by I saw of "FREE PUPPIES" on the side of a road within two days. It, being the start of 2010, just seemed like a sign to have a cuddly addition to my life!
I got him in October 2015. He likes to chase his tail. He's a very affectionate guy, he needs hugs and kisses all day and as soon as I walk in the door he greets me with a lot of love!
