Okay here is a story about my Golden "Oakley". Well our golden boy is our baby now that our youngest son is 18 and so he is one pampered pooch. When he was 8 months old my DH thought it would be nice to take him river fishing with him. You can just picture the scene in your mind. A beautiful Autumn day, the river is flowing, the backdrop of leaves changing beautiful colours of yellow and gold and there is a man fishing there on the rivers shoreline with his beloved Golden Retriever at his side.

You can picture this seen right ?

Well, let's just say it wasn't that way. DH would cast his line out and our Golden boy would jump in the river and want to retriever the line. So after many attempts of "STAY" my husband ties up the dog. Oakley is still a pup and does not like to be tied down so after one hour of barking and crying my DH calls it a day, takes Oakley off of his leash and starts to head back to the car. Oakley sees another fisherman and runs towards him, and immediately bites on the end of the fisherman's rod which was loaded with yummy bait and a 3 pronged hook (Goldens are notorious at being pigs).

Yes he swalled the hook and the line was hanging out of his mouth. My DH tried to gently tug on the line but nope the hook was stuck...stuck in my pooches' tummy.

Long story short. My DH took him immediately to the vet and luckily they did not have to cut him open but they knocked him out and called in a specialist who put a camera/scope down his throat and was able to retrieve the hook with an instrument back out through pooches throat at the tune of $1,000. DH did not tell me anthing until he came home without our dog, sat me down and told me he was okay and we would pick him up the next day.

He has been one expensive pooch but we do love him
Poor Oakley...but thanks to modern technology, he didn't have to suffer from open surgery, and because of love for our pets...we're more than willing to go all out just to make sure they are safe and healthy...

Here's what mine looks like:

Thank you...all doggies are cuties! I don't do anything but give him a bath once a week then brush...they're naturally that way...a good thing.

I have never posted a pic before but going to give it a try. Hope this works.

Here is a pic of my troublemaker taken at his favourite spot on the dock at the lake.

Oakley is such a cutie too and a "deep thinker" from the way he looks...

Don't worry Oakley...all dogs go to heaven...

We dog lovers are extremely nutty...

June grew up with two golden retrievers, so seeing yours was like a "trip down memory lane." They are GREAT dogs; so even tempered and loving. And calm!

I hope so Ans.... I can only say that when I am sitting on the dock at the lake with my pooch and DH with me and the sun is shining I truly hope that this is what my heaven will be like

I don't know though as I have read differing stories about whether or not they will be with us in heaven
