We Don't Need To Tell You Golden Retrievers Are Amazing, But We Will Anyway

Posted: Updated:

There's something golden about retrievers. They've got that canine secret sauce that makes them irresistible, lovable, cuddly and cute all at once, all the time. We wouldn't go so far as to say they're the world's best pooch (because we love dogs of all shapes and sizes here at HuffPost Green), but we wanted to send one big shout out to all those golden retrievers out there.

And remember, if you're looking for a companion of your own, golden or not, take a look at the ASPCA adoption site or Petfinder.com.

Goldens, this one's for you.

They're so powerful, they can melt your heart with a single gaze.
