Samson: Portrait of an American Canine.


The American Kennel Club describes the Golden Retriever :

A symmetrical, powerful, active dog, sound and well put together, not clumsy nor long in the leg, displaying a kindly expression and possessing a personality that is eager, alert and self-confident.

Symmetrical.  Check.

Powerful. Check.

Active. Check.

Sound, well put together, not long in the leg, displays a kindly expression and possessing a personality that is eager, alert and self-confident.  Check, check, check, check, check and check.

Not clumsy?  The AKC and I will have to part ways on this one, however to be fair,  our wood floors aren’t exactly Samson’s best friend.
