My Spoiled Golden Retriever – Carmen Miranda Again

Sharon Hill | October 23rd, 2011

I thought it was time to start deciding what to be for Halloween. I really like the Carmen Miranda hat I made for Sabrina Renee a few years ago. I put it on her again thisĀ  morning but as you can see she wasn’t very happy about it. It’s rather heavy. I took a real dog hat, pink, cowboy style, and found stuffed fruit to sew on it. Some are cat toys, some are baby toys that I found at Whole Foods. The grapes make the hat – but they are the heaviest thing on it.

I also made some ruffled leggings to go with the outfit but she really doesn’t like those!

My Spoiled Golden Retriever – Sunday Walk

Sabrina Renee like to take long walks on Sunday mornings. Today we went all around the park then across the bridge that takes us over Alamo Creek. Sabrina Renee like to listen to the ducks and watch them swim in the creek.

My Spoiled Golden Retriever and Her Dog Walker

I haven’t shared news of Sabrina Renee in a long time so I thought I share this video that her walker, Kevin Metz, of Pawsitive Cause Pet Sitting, created of the two of them. We recently moved and were in need of a some daytime help. A friend found Kevin via an internet search and he is the perfect sitter for Sabrina Renee, as you’ll see in this video.

My Spoiled Golden Retriever Spreads Holiday Cheer

Sharon Hill | December 13th, 2010

My spoiled golden retriever, Sabrina Renee, and I went out and did some errands this morning. She dressed in her Christmas sweater with the light-up tree and we stopped at the bank, which lets dogs in and gives them cookies, and the dog store, Wags and Whiskers.

She saw her friend Camille and her cousin, Bodhi, and they all posed for this photo. Of course, we also picked up some treats while we were there.

We had to stop by the veterinary clinic. Since it was cold, Sabrina Renee dressed in her red hoodie to stay warm.

We went into one of the treatment rooms and saw more photos of her on the walls.

In this photo Sabrina Renee in the bottom middle photo.

In the photo below she is the one in the middle of the top row, looking up at the wall.

The photos were taken by Tonya Perme.

When we were in Santa Rosa, Sabrina Renee wanted to show Dexter and his mom what she looked like in her Halloween costume. Dexter loved the bee. He ran around chasing her because he wanted to squeak it. She got tired of him doing it and barked at him so we made him stop.

I ended up sending him a spare bee that I had at home.

My Spoiled Golden Retriever – Getting Ready for Fun with Dogs

Sharon Hill | November 15th, 2010

Sabrina Renee can’t wait to get to the polo field in the mornings when we are in Santa Rosa. As soon as Dexter’s mom opens the car door, they run in and are ready to go. The field isn’t far from Dexter’s house, in fact, we walked there one morning, but with Sabrina and I had to head home today, we took the car.

Below, the two of them stopped for a photo in the middle of their fun.

We are still in Santa Rosa and the weather was so nice this afternoon that the dogs got to go swimming. Sabrina Renee, my spoiled golden retriever, and chocolate lab, Dexter, love to swim. With us on the trip was sheltie, Casey, who does not like to get wet, so he and his mom hiked and waited as the other dogs swam.

Sabrina was very tired after swimming and promptly fell asleep next to me in the back seat of the van when she was done playing.

My Spoiled Golden Retriever Has Fun Chasing a Ball

We are in Santa Rosa which means Sabrina Renee can run and play wither her friend, chocolate lab, Dexter, at the local polo field. As you can see in the video above, she loves to chase a tennis ball, Dexter isn’t as interested. She does get tired and sometimes takes a rest, usually lying on top of the ball so no other dogs can get to it.

There are a number of dogs on the filed at the same time as Sabrina Renee and Dexter. Many are small dogs but they all get along well and the field is so big that they can have room to run by themselves, if they wish. Below is a photo of Happy, the schnauzer, who visits the field a few times a day.
