Golden Retriever Rules

When I was just a puppy, my neighbor gave this to my parents. I’m so glad she managed to set my parents straight early on regarding the truth about Golden Retrievers and rules.

  1. The Golden Retriever is not allowed in the house.
  2. Okay, the Golden Retriever is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
  3. The Golden Retriever is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.
  4. The Golden Retriever is only allowed on the old furniture.
  5. Fine, the Golden Retriever is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.
  6. All right, the Golden Retriever is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.
  7. The Golden Retriever may sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.
  8. The Golden Retriever may sleep under the covers every night.
  9. Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the Golden Retriever!
  10. In all cases of dispute . . . the Golden Retriever rules!

I hope you’ll share this with your humans. It’s something they need to understand.

    I still love these rules. I think H.L.told Rudy as he’s spending more time in the house and I’ve been trying to decide where “his” space will be in the new house….OMG! What did I just say?

  2. Sounds like those rules apply to whippets too!!
