    Well--I have officially lost my mind and thought it would be fun to post it for your viewing enjoyment. I bought a shorty jack, had an opportunity too good to pass up. So here she is: Three Mile Jacks Movin On Up. AKA: Weezie Pals. Don't laugh too hard, she is loving pheasants and is quite the puppy. At 13 weeks old, 6" tall and 5 pounds, she is sleeping thru the night and potty trained-she is also very sweet. She most certainly is not a golden and is taking some getting used to--but she has been out in the field--and I must say she is stunning running after the big dogs in her blue diva sweater.
    She is a tough little thing as well, God love her she has been stepped on and rolled on by Ryder, who just can't figure out how to play with something so small. He does try very hard to be gentle and both Ruck and Ryder are really good with her. Ryder did try to pick her up in her sweater out in the field last week, we had a talking to about that. She is also pretty calm, most of the time. Having a ball with the little dog!!!

    Have a great weekend everyone!!

    That's cute. Quite a change from a big fluffy ret, huh?

    I don't wear black because it makes me look slim, I wear black because it hides the dog hair.

    HUGE CHANGE!!!! But lots of fun. Easy to train so far. The fluffs do love her. My husband swears I got her just so I can dress her up, he may be right. I would beat the person who tries to dress up my goldens and bandannas are used for target practice at our house, but this little dog--I just can't control myself. They make the cutest little dog clothes, and toys and beds.....see I told you--I've lost it!

    Nice addition to the family ! Dressing a dog ??? Hmmm... I agree that goldens shouldn't be dressed... at the most, have the golden's collars match the pup's dress ! ahahah !

    Hey Nancy!!

    Sending this thread link to a very long-time Golden Retriever owner/breader/handler...here in Maine...that did the very same!

    She will get a huge kick out of your choice...and would not be surprised if you hear from her!

    Very Cute...and "Ryder" picking the pup up by the sweater is way too funny!!..sure it made perfect sense to him!

    You made me smile regards...

    Nancy,

    Say that you didn't put a sweater on that pup, please!

    Pete and Bill are going to see this and put sweaters on Rip and Lincoln!
