Standing by my fellow Californians in these difficult days and nights. β€œWhen the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me.
If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah
And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah
Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me.”

With an extra hour of sleep and a little help from my friends: Started adjusting to daylight standard time by getting together with a few buddies to compare new meal times. A couple of pals are missing cuz they walked out of frame...maybe they thought it was time for dinner!

Sweet dreams are made of this. Duke has discovered the simple joys of an outdoor nap on a leafy garden bed. His pillow may be a rock, but this 12-year-old boy finds nothing hard about it.

Our golden squad goals today were: eat, drink, hike and play at a fabulous joint birthday picnic for me and @arisafari77 @ilovejakeandzoey ➑️ We had two awesome cakes, although our friend @Joey_4pawjay couldn’t resist and did a golden retriever taste test on the β€œAri and Bob” cake πŸ˜‚. Thanks for the great day everyone! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›#furgoldenspawty

On Oct. 19, we’re remembering our beautiful friend @chronicles.of.chronic πŸ’™ His favorite color was blue, and it is the brilliant blues of the sky and the many shades of blue of the sea that I think about...and the laughter, love and friendship he shared. He was my small friend with a giant heart. On #GoBlueForChronicDay please stop by his page to give hugs to his family. #goblueforchronicday #gonetoosoon #neverforget #RIPChronic πŸ’™πŸŒˆπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

β€œHome is where the golden is”.... That pretty much sums up our philosophy! Duke and I won this awesome pillow from @threespoileddogs in the fabulous @goldiepalooza raffle on Sunday (we’re told it’s going on the couch instead of the dog beds). We bought a big dog bowl’s worth of tickets ➑️and got very lucky, winning gifts generously donated by @pamela.marks @wilsontennis @thedapperdogbox @l.e_boutique @nsorangecounty @thedoggiespa
These are among the many reasons why #goldiepalooza was the bestest event of the year! Thanks to all the raffle prize donors! #goldiepalooza πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› Please follow the tales of the pawesome #goldenrescuepack :

Well @goldiepalooza you said it would be epic...and it wasβ€”the golden retriever meetup of the year! Duke and I managed to find a quiet spot to catch our breath at this awesome gathering of hundreds of goldens. ➑️In the next pic, we kinda collapsed from all the excitement during the photo shoot. A shoutout to all the #goldiepalooza sponsors, donors, vendors and volunteers. You all have hearts of gold! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

Super hero: for my 10th birthday this week I got the most wonderful present! My mom took me to meet and congratulate @chichirescuedog and her beautiful family. Last night Chi Chi was named 2018 @americanhumane Hero Dog. As her special trading card says, β€œChi Chi inspires people all over the world to Never Give Up, make the most of every day and share love and kindness abundantly.” Thank you for sharing the love, dear Chi Chi! You’re the bestest gift ever! #nevergiveup #mysuperhero #furgoldenspawty βž‘οΈπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Please follow the tales of the pawesome #goldenrescuepack :
