Pet Blogger Gift Exchange

We joined the Pet Blogger Gift Exchange, and we were lucky enough to be paired with Sue, writer of "The Golden Life" blog. This year is the third annual Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange, hosted by Pamela at Something Wagging This Way Comes. 

Now the collies always enjoy visiting blogging friends, but I was especially excited to be paired with Sue, as I have a soft spot in my heart for Goldens.   I wanted to post this sooner, but my computer died, and posting to Blogger on a mobile device has proven to be a real challenge.  (Which is why we haven't been posting at all in the last few weeks.). But Sue's blog is so special, I wanted to make sure to post this for the Gift exchange, which thankfully, I was reminded is ending soon.

Sue has three dogs, two senior Golden retrievers named Callie and Shadow, and then there is Ducky, a funny and endearing shelter dog that will steal your heart.  Callie and Shadow have those sweet, white faces, that all senior Goldens develop as they age, and which my own golden, Chloe, developed in her later years.  I think the white fur that graces a golden's face just serves to remind us that each day with those gentle souls is a gift.

I actually began following this blog awhile ago, as I was missing my golden, Chloe, and couldn't resist stopping by to read her posts and see her pictures.  So I can highly recommend this blog, because the love Sue has for her dogs is evident in all her posts.  The link for her blog is found below, so head over, sit, and stay for won't be sorry that you did!


  1. We are stopping by that right now....we have missed you.

  2. First off, sorry you've been having computer problems. That is not fun. But it's probably not a bad thing to get some time off from blogging around the holidays. I'm sure the dogs gave you plenty to do.

    I also adore Sue and her pups. I thought it was a particularly good match. But I didn't know you also had a golden in your past.

    Thanks so much for your lovely gift to Sue. I'm sure she'll enjoy it when she stops by. And thank you for joining the Pet Blogger's Gift Exchange.

    BTW, every time I come to your site, I think you have the most beautiful blog banner picture. Don't ever change it. :)

  3. I'm heading over to check out The Golden Life blog. I love finding new blogs and Sue and her goldens and Ducky sound interesting!

  4. Aw, thanks! That was so sweet of you! I hope my Golden Girls and my little demon dog continue to make you smile!

  5. We will check out the blog - and certainly hope that you have a functional computer now, or very soon!

  6. Hello! I am so happy I found your blog! I have one collie too :-) Her name is Sára (Sarah). I love collies so much <3 You can see her on my blog (my blog is in Czech language but I have there a lot of photos) :-)

  7. Hi! We have you guys for our Exchange and are so looking forward to getting to you know you all!
