Not a lab but certainly an old dog….

I was doing some cleaning this weekend and ran a crossed these photos of my first and second dogs. The black/brown/tan/whatever hairy “mutt” was my first dog, Cindy, she was 18 when she passed in our backyard. My dad got her when I was two and she was four. I am 11 or 12 in the picture sitting next to the golden.

The Golden is my first Golden, Barney. My Dad gave him to me. He was 2 and pro trained when his first owner was transferred overseas and couldn’t keep him any more and just wanted him to go to a good home. At the time my Dad did not know what a Golden Retriever was! His grandsire was AM, CA, Bda, Mex, and Columbian CH Beckwith’s Copper Coin pictured on page 70 of the old book The Complete Golden Retriever. His papers meant nothing to me back then, all I knew was my Dad gave me a GREAT dog!! He was thirteen when he had a stroke and I had to put him down.
