Golden Retrievers are known as friendly dogs. In fact, they are said to be the classic family companion. Obedient, playful, intelligent, well-mannered, great with kids, and kindly to strangers, they make good watchdogs, but lousy guard dogs. They simply love people far too much!
This beautiful dog is the penultimate example of his breed, as he loves the garbage man, who loves the dog, too!
As soon as the truck pulls up in front of the dog’s home, the man exits his truck and bends down to greet his four-legged buddy.
In addition to the hugs and petting the puppy enjoys, the garbage man has brought the pretty dog a treat. A wagging tail and wriggling body are his rewards for being kind to the dog.
Although trash pick up is run on a tight schedule, the garbage man has worked into it stopping to say hi to the Golden and his owner. A weekly occurrence, it is obviously a favorite part of the day for both the dog and the truck driver.
But the friendliness doesn’t just stop with patting the dog or even giving him a dog biscuit. The garbage man has also made friends with the dog’s owner as well.
Dogs are wonderful at bridging the gap between people, regardless of walk of life or race or any other division that people have put up between themselves and others.
Dogs don’t care who you are or what job you have. Dogs love because they embody acceptance. We should be more like them!
