I was a pup in training to offer therapy but turns out I have sore elbows. So now instead of giving therapy, I’m receiving it! 😍

I’ve had surgery on both my elbows so I’m sporting the newest fashion in faux hairless dog chic. Also, I have a pain patch so I’m rather ‘happy’. #goldenretriever #goldensofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #writersofinstagram

Hi all, I’m now six months old and Mum says I’m very cheeky. I mean, just because I chase the cats and dig holes and steal things from the kitchen bench... what’s wrong with that?! Anyway, my mum and dad think that I might not make it as a therapy dog. I’ve had a lot of issues with one of my legs and I limp a lot. I’m off to see a specialist soon and Mum and Dad are building me a pool for something called hydrotherapy. That sounds ok, I guess. Mum says that, actually, they were right about me being a ‘therapy dog’; it’s just that they thought I’d be giving the therapy when it turns out I’ll be receiving it 😁 They say they’ll love me forever no matter what 💕 #dogsofinstagram #goldensofinstagram #goldenretriever #puppies #therapydog #training #lovemydog

I’ve been a bit quiet because I’ve been having a lot of rest for my elbows. Well, I’m SUPPOSED to be resting. But I’m five months old! I want to run for hours. Cuddles are good though. Mum calls this the cuddling chair. #dogsofinstagram #goldensofinstagram #goldenretriever #puppy #stillgrowing #elbow #puppiesofinstagram #therapydog #maybe

I’m totally bored with confinement and going a bit crazy so I got into the human child’s paint pots and put paint paws all over the floor. Mum calls this my ‘Braveheart’ look.

I got to see a wheelchair today because my Aunty Manda had an operation on her leg. It wasn’t scary at all (though the two big pointer dogs who were also at the cafe made me very nervous 😳). #therapydog #sunshine #noosa #sunshinecoast #goldenretriever #goldenretrieverpuppy #goldensofinstagram #training #puppies

This weekend I graduated from puppy preschool. My family is very proud of me. I got roast lamb and potatoes for dinner!

“Where’s my puppacino?!”

Mum took me to Nambour today for some out and about time. For some reason I was scared of lots of things today: tunnels, flags, prams, motorbikes, shops 🤔🤷‍♀️? Mum wasn’t sure why. But I did climb the play equipment in Quota Park and practised sit, drop, crawl, roll over, stay and heel. Then we went to Husk and Honey cafe for a smoothie and I got to practise ‘mat time’ while loads if people came to pat me. That part was nice.

This morning at puppy preschool, I learned to roll over. Mum thought I was very clever.

I’ve been discovering my paws and tail lately. Yesterday I fell asleep in Mum’s lap with my paw in my mouth.

Because I inhale my food instead of eating it... Mum’s making me eat out of a muffin tray.

Coldest morning this winter and Mum has to take me to puppy preschool on a frosty oval. She’s not happy but I won’t even notice with all my lovely polar fleece.

Today Mum took me for a walk to wear me out then let me meet the chickens face to face. I thought they smelled amazing! But were a bit scary. (P.S. Mum doesn’t think that will last.)
