Oshie And The Egg Test

Golden Retrievers have a soft mouth. That might seem like a weird statement to make because when you look at a dogs mouth you see a big floppy tongue and a bunch of large hard teeth. What I mean by this is that Golden Retrievers are able to carry delicate items in their mouth without damaging them. This is one of the characteristics that makes them a great retriever. If you are a hunter you wouldn’t want your retriever to bring back a mangled bird would you?

We were well aware of this and had even heard the claims that they could carry and egg in their mouth without breaking it. Recently on social media we had seen a few videos of owners testing this on their beloved Goldies with success. Now we don’t doubt that they do have soft mouths but we wanted to see if Oshie was capable of completing this challenge. We suspected he might but were also prepared for him to break the egg. ¬†Below is the video we made of Oshie attempting the challenge. He gave it his best ha-ha.

Enjoy!

Oshie loves doughnuts!

Being the spoiled dog that he is, Oshie has developed a taste for the finer things in life like fresh (well maybe not really fresh) doughnuts. On the weekends we usually take a morning drive with a mandatory stop for coffee to fuel the rest of the day. Of course Oshie tags along on the rides because he loves being in the car with the windows down where he can catch all the scents! This means that he usually gets a treat in the form of whipped cream or the occasional plain doughnut. Don’t worry we know they aren’t good for him and he doesn’t get them everyday, but a treat every once in a while isn’t going to hurt right? And it is impossible to say no to that face!

Anyway here is a short video of Oshie, who had already eaten his treat, practically begging for the doughnut that I had saved for myself. You also get to see his newest trick at the end! He has learned speak. Probably the hardest trick to teach so far as he is not much of a barker. Enjoy!

Birthday Boy!

Yesterday Oshie turned 3 years old which, depending on the source, is anywhere from 24-29 in dog years. Despite getting older he still has that happy and rambunctious puppy attitude about him.

As usual he was completely spoiled and received a delicious steak and vegetable dinner (fear not the steak was not seasoned it any way).

Only the best for Oshie

And after dinner Oshie received a special cupcake because how can you have a birthday without a cake? Nancy made the cupcakes which had peanut butter and carrots in them along with peanut butter for frosting. I will be sure to post the recipe later.

Oshie absolutely devoured both the steak and the cupcake. See for yourselves in the videos below.

Hopefully he doesn’t think that now he will be eating like this every night.

Happy Birthday Oshie!

Floating

One of the rare times where Oshie actually wanted to run around while I had the camera out.

Fetch

A game that doesn’t last long when played with Oshie unless we are at the beach and that is only because it is an excuse to get in the water.
