Dog of the Day: Bernie the Miniature Golden Retriever Puppy

Bernie is two hundred and eighty pounds of OH MY GOD wrapped in a svelte 25 to 30 pound frame. She looks just like a golden retriever, but she’s eight months old and won’t be getting much bigger and she’s so little and adorable and happy she makes you want to just pick her up and tuck her under one arm and saunter off whistling. Autumn and I delayed her parents for far longer than should probably be legal. They were good sports about it, thank goodness.

If that doesn’t make you want to get up from your chair and go find a dog to hug, there’s something wrong with you.

My great goal in life is to be the person this dog thinks I am. Or just about any dog, really.
