The Elephant Seal Missile

It's an affectionate name for this 76 pound boy who takes to launching onto the bed like a missile, then flopping down, all backboneless-like. FYI - the nose mark is from his recent stay at the kennel we rescued him from 2 weeks ago.

    Golden retrievers are the best. I'm glad you were able to rescue one. Of course, any dog rescued from a shelter is "the best" dog. They're so grateful to have a good home, and they know you love them.

    Your photo reminds me of this one of mine:
    I had to wake him up at 4am to get that shot; he was still a puppy at the time and way too hyper to get the shot at any other time.
    Sorry for the link. I haven't done much with my flickr account yet.
