Desert update with Big Red

Yes, the desert agrees with Easton. We have a new feeding routine and a wonderful new kibble (Natural Balance Alpha Dog) that is blended with his regular NB Venison and sweet potato canned food. Combined with big, off-leash romps every day and plenty of brushing really makes him glow. About the only thing I don't indulge is his desire to have you throw every rock he picks up along our walks. Needless to say, there is a never ending supply of racket ball sized rocks here in the Sonoran Desert for Easton to carry around. Don't worry, he has such a soft mouth there is no problem with him chipping his teeth. His previously injured leg is doing so well, I just don't want to take a chance his exuberance gets the best of him. He is very play obsessed, so I try to drain his energy with walks and wrestling matches. He has really loosened up over the past year. Not bad for a nine year old, 95lb Golden. Here are some recent pictures. Sorry about the shadows, but I could not resist that face and the blooming cactus.

What a beautiful place to be. Love the blooming cactus and no worries abut the shadows. Easton looks handsome and sounds like he is doing well. Thanks for visiting us.

What a gorgeous boy - his K-Rats sound deeeelish - girls are drooling! The walks sound really cool and Easton obviously thrives there! It's always great to stop by when we can get internet; we're on a long trip and never know if we're going to be lucky or not!

What a handsome boy!!! But I'll bet the desert agrees with both of you! I'm glad you're enjoying your time there, but doesn't the wilds of Washington call to you, just a little? :-)

I had a darker, reddish Golden like yours growing up. So pretty!

Woof! Woof! Oh Easton ... I guess he is also getting used to the camera. Can't believe that he is 9 years old. He is heavy ... LOVE the cactus. Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar
