Sleepy Saturday (beau-beau sytle)

 
Here are my original beau-beaus (Gold Sunny and Blonde Cosmo) from about 1993. Papa and baby enjoying a much needed snooze. What in the world is a beau-beau you ask? (could be spelled many ways). Twenty years ago this became the description of Sunny (papa dog) my first Golden Retriever. It seemed to be the perfect term to describe his big, handsome, powerful, happy head! The term expanded to include the head shape of a few specific breeds: Goldens, Labs, Newfies, Great Pyrenees etc. When Cosmo came along to make book-end Goldens in our house, the term was used to refer to both Goldens together (the beau-beaus). Yea, I know, we could spend the rest of our blogging lives talking about the nicknames we give our dogs, but this one has morphed into a broader dictionary listing, because no one can resist a beau-beau head, crow-barring your arm for attention!! I dare you to try.
