I wanted to share this picture of Gracie that was taken at Goldstock Camp.
Goldstock Camp is a weekend long celebration of dogs as well as a fundraiser for Golden Rescues.
Goldstock is held every Labor Day weekend in the Poconos. It is held at a children's camp, and families stay in cabins with their dogs. There are all kinds of activities including dock diving into a lake.
This was our first time there, and there were about 300 other Goldens and their families.
I thought this picture was really cute. Gracie was 10 weeks old.
Here is the link to the photographer's fiicker account with some more great Goldstock pics.
I am providing the link to give credit to the photographer.

Gracie was having trouble learning to walk with a regular collar. She didn't realize she was attached to a leash, and kept falling over sideways. She wasn't big enough for a Ruff Wear harness , so I got her the little pink harness you see in the picture. She is doing much better with that and can now walk just fine on a leash. My husband calls this little pink harness her training bra LOL.

My sweet golden Mackenzie. She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2 although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009. She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes. I love you Mackenzie!

She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.

Gracie is a sweet heart! She is just beautiful and what a great photo. I'm so glad she's adjusting to the training bra - it looks really cute on her.
