I can hardly believe that the year is nearly half gone and summer is upon us. At this time of year, we must diligently protect our Golden Retrievers from the brutal desert sun. Give them plenty of water, walk them during the coolest part of the day or evening, and watch out for those hot pavements.
2014 Cutest Golden Contest – Meet the Winners!
You took your best shot (photo that is), you voted, and you chose the winner of our 2014 Cutest Golden Contest.
Meet Lizzy, who will grace the cover of our 2015 Hearts of Gold calendar when it is published this fall. Also winning a coveted spot in our calendar is Maddie, our runner-up, along with eight other adorable Goldens. You can view all of them right now, just click here. Also, the slideshow on the RAGofAZ website has been updated to feature the winners. Check it out on our home page.
Not only will these Goldens make fabulous calendar models, their many human fans raised more than $8,200.00 in funds to support our organization and help pay those vet bills! Congratulations to Lizzy’s humans, Michelle and John Krieger, and all of our winners and contestants – and thank you to everyone who voted!
From Labs to Lizards...
...did you know that you can enter your pet’s photo in our calendar as a “fuzzy friend?”
And it doesn’t have to be Golden or even a dog.
