Despite his health problems, Simba is now the longest lived Golden I have had
My daughter Rebecca's funny card about Simba -all her own work and ratings!
Simba is a typical Golden -happy, outgoing, loving, adores everyone, loves to please and lives to retrieve!
He's very laid back and his favourite position is on his back with his legs in the air,
tail wagging, waiting for somebody to tickle his tummy.
Teaching him new obedience exercises is done with lightning speed.
Everybody loves Simba, humans and animals alike.
PUPPYHOOD UNTIL NOW:
Simba 8 weeks old, just arrived with us.
Dandy and Simba -Dandy will teach Simba all that he knows!
Simba at 10 weeks.
He has settled in so well and all the other dogs love him.
Simba 3 ½ months old.
Such a pretty face !
Simba is very good at getting muddy !
4 months old now.
Other than having a talent for getting dirty, Simba has lots of other
talents. He is doing well at training classes. He excels at retrieving -and down stays.
Down stays are good for a snooze. He also has an amazing talent for opening
the cupboards where the dog and cat food is kept !
He is extremely friendly and outgoing, and totally fearless. Everybody is
a friend in Simba's eyes, regardless of size and species.
Simba 5 months old
Tired! Almost filling up the bed now -though it is the smaller one!
All our dogs have to wait until told before they are allowed to eat.
At 5 months of age, Simba is already excellent at this.
Simba has been given the command "okay" and tucks into his lunch!
Simba 7 months old.
Where DID that tiny puppy go ?!
We can do a sit stay together
But the oldies quickly get tired! Notice how Simba is obviously raring to go !!
A down stay is easier
on old legs for Dandy and Elsa, and Simba happily oblige
At a Companion show in July 2004 Simba was Best Puppy in Show.
Simba 8 months old
Simba July 2004.
A year old approx.
Simba took a dislike to showing -we shall see if we can get him used to it again.
If not, he'll remain a wonderful pet. He's a very happy dog!
Here he is in June 2005 with Ripley's Malinois puppies.
Simba loves puppies -in fact he loves everyone.
This is his favourite pose -on his back!
Simba has as a fully mature adult developed a lovely dark colour.
Always the reliable babysitter !
Every week my son Benjamin looks at my website and asks if I'm not going to add the photos of HIM and Simba.
He thinks Simba is the best dog in the world. So here are the photos for the world to see.
