Elliot just turned 11 months old. He was 10 months in the photos that are being sent. He is a White English Cream Golden Retriever and we got him at eight weeks old. He amazes us everyday with the things he does. He LOVES the pool, and being in water, and truly loves to play fetch. At night he has to get on my husband and I’s bed, with my youngest daughter (16 years old) and roll all around, taking the covers in his mouth to cover himself and then just lay there. After my daughter says goodnight, he lays still between my husband and I for about five minutes, moves to the other side of my husband and stretches out, lies there five more minutes, then sits up on the edge of the bed… waits… sits… waits… then after about 10 minutes he gets down and lays on the floor! This has to be his nightly routine or he cries and whines until everyone is there together! He needs to have someone petting him at all times when we are sitting, and he watches TV, depending on the show! I cannot imagine our lives without him. Submitted by Valerie C.
