Here is Ragan on a clean day.
I am wheelchair-bound, so both Ragan and Walker help me with everyday things. Ragan is especially great at picking anything up off of the ground and handing it to me – business cards, silverware, magazines, clothes – just about anything. He also loves to close the door for me when we come back inside the house. I’m a little leery of teaching him to open the doors; not that he couldn't do it, but that he might just let himself out at will!
Goldens are such smart and loving dogs. It is amazing what a large amount of vocabulary they understand.
