The Sweet-Natured Golden Retriever (PLAYING)...

(To those of you using this under the CC license - please understand that this is NOT a photo of fighting dogs. These are my pampered and deeply loved boys PLAYING. If you use this photo to illustrate the violence of golden retrievers, I will ask you to remove it. Thanks)

 

...caught in mid-play with his brother Sammy. Rest assured - though they look vicious, they are indeed playing. They'll get rough for a few moments, make a few growling noises, then return to their docile, gentle, loving selves. Here's another shot of them in a similar situation but my wife is clearly smiling and their tails are definitely wagging. www.andrewmorrell.com/photoblog/
