Golden Retriever Day
February 3rd is Golden Retriever Day! This special day was started in by iheartgoldenretrievers.com celebrating the founding golden retriever’s birthday – Quincey. It was first started in 2012 and it is going strong to celebrate the best dog breed out there! (Sorry I am slightly biased since our fur baby is a golden retriever).
