Aurique (Golden Lab)

Aurique is 9 years old and a Golden Lab (designer breed). He was dropped on my doorstep by a friend who thought we would make a good pair. Aurique's owner was going to shoot him, when he was two months old because he chased people who walked on the road. I lived in the forest, where he can't see the road. My 12-year-old Border was sick and dying, so my friend thought I needed Aurique, as much as he needed me.

Aurique loves playing in the snow and with other dogs. Mostly, he is a great therapy dog for the elderly and as a seeing eye dog. The name Aurique comes from the Latin name, meaning the golden prince.

How lucky for your dog that he was rescued. What an idiot first owner, going to shot the dog? Geez Louise!! 8 week old pup? I hope this person never has another pet in his/her lifetime.

We have our "Shadow" that looks almost identical to your Aurique! We bought her as a puppy because our older Golden "Teac" had a bad knee & we wanted a walking companion for my husband. Well...we had Teac's knee replaced, she is still walking the 8-10 kilometers with Shadow and my husband every morning. It looks like my husband will have to have knee surgery within the next year. We found that the "red" Retriever, Shadow has a very different personality than our older Teac (14 yrs), but if very lovable and loyal. Pets are a blessing aren't they?

Thank you for sharing Aurique with us.

I call this a calendar shot! Aurique is so beautiful and looks like he is full of energy. I like how you captured him in action and in anticipation of your next command - he is so focused! He definitely loves you as much as you love him. Thank you for sharing. I also noticed that you are from the Magdelan Islands. This is such a small world. My husband has spoken of that place with great interest. I'll have to tell him that someone from Thrifty Fun is from there.
