A anecdote about a Golden Retriever from Raleigh, North Carolina named Sampson.
"Sampson was my golden, and he was ALL golden. He'd be the one wearing the lampshade on his head at a party! He absolutely loved the water and his favorite thing to do was dive for rocks in the river. The bigger the better.
You could throw a rock 30' out into the rock-covered river bed and he would go underwater and come up with the same rock you threw. Then he'd carry it to the bank, drop it, and run back out in the river and wait for you to throw another. 😊 All. Day. Long."
