I have a Golden Retriever named Louie. Every day, morning and evening, my wife or I take Louie for a walk in the park. Goldens are generally gentle dogs who love nothing more than a little attention. Louie is no exception, and in the 10 years I have had him, I have never heard him growl or seen him defensive. When I take Louie on a walk, he is always on a leash. Not because I think he will run but because it is the law and because other people who may have a fear of dogs don’t know he’s a sweetheart.
