Dog of the Day: McCloud the Flat-Coated Retriever

Well, I’ve had two flat-coats (fuzzier ancestors of modern labrador and golden retrievers) on DoSF before: Hunter and this pup. I’m trying to figure out if the latter one is McCloud, or if he’s a different dog. On the one hand, both are flat-coated retrievers and both have spotty tongues. On the other hand, spotty tongues aren’t unusual in flat-coated retrievers, and the latter pup doesn’t appear to have ears that are nearly as ridiculous as McCloud’s ears.

Anyway, whether McCloud is a repeat customer or not, he’s an awesome fuzzly dog that fully deserves his time in the spotlight today.

See? The most utterly ridiculous ears. I mean, these may even be goofier than Papillon ears.

Someone got an itch. The world had to stop.

Aww, happy face. Plus, here you can clearly see the spotty tongue.
