If you have been around awhile you know that today is basically a national holiday here at Campus Classics. We love any reason to celebrate our favorite Golden Boy Max, so today we couldn’t resist celebrating him and all the Goldens. If you haven’t met our sweet Max head over to our formal introduction of our favorite boy.
National Golden Retriever Day is a fairly new holiday only being established in 2012 (we know, we were shocked that it took so long for a holiday to honor Goldens to be established, too). Our favorite breed dates back to the 1800’s in Scotland. There was a need for a breed with superb fetching abilities. So, a water spaniel and retriever were bred and well the rest is history. Goldens have come a long way from retrieving birds in Scotland. They are now a household breed known for being great assistance dogs, search and rescue (thanks to their all-star sniffing capabilities), and they are extremely well tempered with children. They make the perfect working dog or family dog.
Make sure for the special Golden in your life that you take them out for extra walks, give them all the treats, and a little extra love today. It’s the least we can do for the special furry friend who sees us through all the chaos life throws at us.
And to show our love for Golden Retrievers everywhere and especially to our beloved Max, we've made a whole collection of shirts with him on them! And better yet, they're for Greek members and non-Greeks as well, so grab one for the human loved ones in your life today!
