Today is International Golden Retriever Day!

I'm pretty sure the Goldens think that is every day in our house and I can't say I blame them!

So to celebrate the day, I thought it would be nice to share some fun facts about Golden Retrievers.

6 Fun Facts About Golden Retrievers

1. The Guinness World Record for loudest bark belongs to a Golden named, Charlie at 113.1 decibels - a chainsaw is 110 decibels.

And I thought Maggie had a loud bark!

2. Another Guinness Record belongs to a Golden named Augie who can fit 5 tennis balls in his mouth. 

Miley can't even fit 2! lol

3. A Golden can run 20-30 miles per hour.

Hmmm,  I wonder how fast squirrels run, the Goldens have never come close to catching one!

4. Oprah, Adam Levine, Jimmy Fallon, and Miranda Lambert all own a Golden.

Wonder if they'd be down for a playdate?!

5. A Golden Retriever can have something referred to as "soft mouth" which is the ability to carry an object in their mouths such as a raw egg without breaking it.

Tell that to my socks, slippers and remote.

6. Male Goldens raise their leg when urinating on a tree to appear tall and intimidating to other dogs.

Bruin is 3 and he has never lifted his leg. Ever.

Bonus! I'm going to share my own little fun secret fact.

Maggie is not a Golden Retriever, she's a Golden Labrador (shhh, she has no idea) but she has a heart and coat of gold just like Miley and Bruin!

It's easy to say, my house is not a home without my Goldens. Nothing compares to the welcome home each day with wagging tails and smiles of pure joy and love.

I am forever indebted to my Goldens...


  1. Our Golden Retriever, Tucker used to collect the dirty clothes and take them to the laundry room. My son taught him how to do it so he didn't have to pick up after himself. It was all great until Tucker learned to open our closets and take the "not ready for the wash" clothes. LOL!

  2. Love the fun facts! I had no idea they could bark so loud!!

  3. Happy Golden Retriever Day! Thanks for the fun facts!

  4. 3 bum swings! 3 more!

    Happy Golden Retriever Day!
