Big Red

Hard to paint a picture with words about how TALL Easton is! Being a Golden, there is a certain "size" picture in most of our minds, painted by our dogs, Westminster beauties or encounters with this wonderful breed. Not sure where he inherited this, but he would be a #1 draft choice in the Golden NBA for sure.


It becomes comical when he decides to squeeze under my desk in order to help me attack all those bits and bytes during the workday. 


I can now trust him to play off-leash out front, fetching up the ball and exploring. Once he just couldn't control his enthusiasm and headed in the wrong direction. A sharp NAME and recall snapped his head back and he quickly trotted back to me, tail wagging and refocused. This was after only having him here for two weeks. I think that eventually he will be 99 percenter. Easton is a very good boy, eager to please, but just a little out of practice. We are so thrilled to have Big Red in our family.

Two months ago to the day, Lady left us for the Bridge. I wish she could have met this big guy. They would have been so good together. As I've said before, Lady LOVED the big Golden boys, especially when they didn't care who was boss! When it comes to other dogs, Easton has immense tolerance for pretty much anything. A certain Cocker Spaniel insisted on trying to mount his shoulder, not really knowing why. Once, twice, three....then on the fourth try, Easton turned on him, put him down with a growl and a flash of very big teeth.....and that was it. Never happened again. They went on to spend an enjoyable afternoon together.

Easton is gorgeous! We know Lady would have been thrilled to have been with him but now she's looking down from the Rainbow Bridge watching him and guiding him. Lots of love, Holly and mom

Easton sure looks like a big dog. Probably just as big as my son, River! I think River is almost 2 inches over the standard height. He got this gene from his dad. He's a giant! And I got to agree with Charlie. Easton looks pretty solid & he's got nice bone too.
