Gibson is a 90 pound Golden Doodle who is not yet a year old. Wow. An imposing bark upon arrival quickly gave way to what I know as the biggest goof ball I’ve ever met. Giant, bouncy and clumsy as all get out. It was awesome and I laughed the whole time.
He loves fetching things and puts his all into it, bounding through the yard with his hair goin’ all sorts of crazy. He is a giant fluff ball of love and the snuggliest thing you’d ever want to get stuck in a winter wilderness with. We played for many hours on a chilly morning and it was awesome.
It only took me a few minutes to recall where I had met him before…in my youth…on Sesame Street, playing the character of Barkley. Anyone remember? I always wanted to hang out with that giant orange dog when I was little, completely ignoring the fact that he was a puppet with a person inside. And now I have lived that dream. Thank you, Gibson.
