Nala (9/3/13)

Pet of the Week
Pet of the Week photo Breed:Golden Retriever
Location:Blue Island, Illinois
OwnerMarie Irving
Nala is a 7 year old Golden Retriever. Nala's parents are only 1 1/2 years older than her. The joke was babies having babies. When I went to pick my puppies Nala caught my attention by her brown puppy dog eyes and the way she just came to give you love. Out of the litter of 9 she is the only red golden of the litter. I didn't just bring Nala home that night I also brought her brother. to this day she has all the fire and spunk of the whole litter.

With those big brown eyes she will capture your heart from the first kiss. Nala is very intelligent dog and super quick learner. She loves to sit and she won’t just give you paw but she will hug you back to show her love for you. She loves to go out & chase the squirrels up the trees. Yet she is always kind to the birds as they will come into the yard and never be afraid. Nala loves the camera, she can “strike a pose” every time.

About 2 years ago we found out that Nala has arthritis and hip problems. But with taking her vitamins and watching her activity she can still play and ruff house with her brother (Simba).

She loves to cuddle and lay right next to mama every night. She wakes me by kissing me every morning at 6:30 am to go potty and will be happy to come back to bed to cuddle. She will walk you out the door, and be one of the first to greet you when you come home. I can’t imagine my life with her. Nala is not just my dog she is my daughter. I love her with all my heart.
