Growing up with dogs is a true joy. Growing up with golden retrievers is a dream come true.
Like all dogs, goldens are always excited to see you, are super cuddly, and encourage endless belly rubbing. The only difference is that these fluffy balls of joy are also super cute from the moment they're born to their ripe old age.
If these photos don't put you in a bright -- dare I say golden -- mood, I don't know what will!
