Do Blondes Have More Fun?

       There's been once or twice that I've chosen a box of hair dye that's blonder than I like. I tend to go for the redder, more coppery hues. Do I have more fun for those weeks days until it fades? I don't think so.

       When I had white-blonde hair when I was younger (up to four or so) and then dishwater blond (until I was 12), I had lots of fun, but I attribute the good times to my young age.

       Our dog Radar (who has reddish-blonde hair) enjoys every minute of almost every day. Getting his nails clipped. Going to the vet for a shot. He doesn't enjoy those moments, but he more than makes up for it with his romps in the back yard and his games of fetch and his get-a-treat-every-time-he-comes-in treatment.

      At the end of the month, however, we're welcoming a temporary new blonde into our home, and here she is:

      
         Winslet (the bottom left golden) is going to join us as a foster dog. She's flying in from Istanbul, but I'm sure she'll quickly learn English. 

       Hopefully, Radar will be a gentleman and treat her in a polite way.

       All four of these dogs will be coming to St. Louis in a few weeks. If you know anyone who wants to foster or adopt a golden retriever, please direct them to Love a Golden...

       ... And wish us luck. Radar can be quite, uh, exuberant.

  1. Ooh! Radar won't be an "only child" any more! This might be a trying time for him. I know that my Sweet, Sweet Juno has STILL not forgiven me for taking in Puppy Jack a year and a half ago.

    1. Val--It's only temporary. Don't get too giddy. We're NOT going to fail as fosters...

    1. Shay--How long do you think it will take for Winslet to find out what the word "treat" means?

  3. Winslet is coming to you with personality. You are going to have fun with two sweet goldens. Maybe you should go blonde??

    1. Linda--Me, blonde? Never. (Although the blonde would blend in better with the white hairs than the red does.)

  4. I'm with Linda on that going blonde thing. :-)

    Also, Winslet is a lucky dog--y'all have fun!

    1. Cathy--Of course you want me to go blonde. However, you're a beautiful blonde. Me? The blonde hair just blends in with the pasty skin and the (now white) eyebrows... NOT a good look.

  5. Oh how exciting! Can't wait to hear all about your sweet new foster. If he's a food-motivated dog, teaching will be a snap.

  6. Sorry for taking so long to check in. I've been without internet and having to find wi-fi spots, but it just came back! So YAY! It's a wonderful thing you're doing, Sioux. And I'm certain Radar will be a good boy. After all, he's had a good upbringing. :)

    1. Lisa--You have the best excuse in the world for being off the blogosphere. All our friends are so glad everything is okay with you... AND that you have found a new circle of friends.

      Good upbringing might not be enough for Radar. He might need an exorcism... ;)
