Presidential Golden Retrievers

For President's Day we thought it would be fun to do a little research to see if there were any Goldens that lived in the White House, we learned of two! 

President Gerald Ford's Golden Retriever - Liberty 

One of the most well-known presidential pets was Gerald Ford's golden retriever patriotically named, Liberty. She was a friendly and obedient dog who could always be found in the Oval Office. She was trained to pay attention to a guest with a specific hand signal that President Ford was known to use when he wanted to break up a conversation or meeting.

President Ronald Reagan's Golden Retriever - Victory

Unlike most presidential dogs, Victory didn't live at the White House. The Reagan's opted to leave him behind at their Ranch in California with their other dogs where he could have free run of their property. Victory was often seen by the President's side while doing ranch work together.

All this research got us thinking what it would be like if we got to live in the White House.

If My Goldens Ran the White House:

  • Breakfast will be ready and waiting- no more prying our peeps out of bed.
  • Unlimited playtime outside- no more being bribed to come in, we will come in when we're good and ready.
  • Leashes will no longer be allowed - be free and run wild.
  • Cookie jars will be filled and ready at all times - no more cookies pieces, we want the whole thing.
  • Naps will be taken where we choose - yes, that means on the furniture.  
  • Feel free to lift your leg in the Oval Office - beware, there are no corners!
  • Toys will be de-stuffed at will - squeaker and all.
  • Guests of all kinds will be welcome - except cats. (sorry cat people)
  • Dinnertime begging will be allowed - hand over those table scraps.
  • Bedtime will take place in a bed where it's meant to be.

A Unique and Easy Way to Clean Your Dog's Teeth

When it comes to brushing the Golden's teeth, they are very cooperative and dare I say may even enjoy it, but I do realize that isn't the case with many dogs.

Today's post is for dog owners who struggle with cleaning their dog's teeth and for those dogs who hate getting a toothbrush jammed in their month.

Let me introduce to you Barkworthies® Brushers.
"A Unique New Way to Give Bacteria and Plaque the Brush Off"

Golden Daily Scoop received the Barkworthies Brushers in exchange for an honest review. 
We received no compensation and Barkworthies is not responsible for the content of this post. 

Looks like a stick right? Did you know that before the modern toothbrush, many people around the world chewed on twigs to keep their breath fresh and teeth clean?!!!

The new Barkworthies Brushers are crafted from the branches of the East Indies Arrack tree. When chewed they release a powerful antibiotic which helps naturally suppress the growth of bacteria and the formation of plaque.

Measuring 7" - 8" long, these 100% organic dental chews have parallel "bristles" that act like dental floss to effectively clean between canine teeth.

As with all Barkworthies products, the Brushers are additive, chemical and preservative-free and they are harvested from a sustainable, renewable resource.

Not only do they clean your dog's teeth and freshen their breath, they include potassium, sodium, chloride, sodium bicarbonate and calcium oxides, all of these minerals help in strengthening tooth enamel.

Like many of the Barkworthies products, the Brushers are perfect for the Goldens who are aggressive chewers, they are certainly durable enough to satisfy their urge to chew.

I love dog products like the Brushers that do double duty, cleaning their teeth while they get their chew on - so much better than chewing on a toothbrush or your fingers for that matter! lol


If you are looking for a new or additional way to clean your dog's teeth, I highly recommend trying a Barkworthies Brusher, I will definitely be adding them to our dental routine.
