I was recently looking through the Instagram accounts I follow and I noticed something very peculiar…about 97% of them are Golden Retrievers who I’ve never met in my life.

Does that make me weird? Perhaps…but I’m okay with it!

What can I say? I love these dogs! I had a Golden named Bailey when I was younger and she was the best dog of all time. That dog would’ve followed me to the end of the Earth.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all dogs. Big and small, cute and ugly, all of ’em. But there is something about the disposition and sweetness of Golden Retrievers that just gets me every time.
