This is Roddy. He’s our dog. He was born on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 in Hitchin, and now he lives with us. He’s a working retriever, which means his fur is a little darker than a regular golden retriever and it won’t grow to be quite as thick and long. He’ll also have a lighter build. His mother is Maple, who is owned by our very dear friends, David and Jess, and is the best-natured dog you’ll ever meet.
I’ve wanted a dog for a very long time. I grew up with a black labrador called Brill. Today, with our kids growing up fast, there’s been increasing space for another member in our household. So when our friends told us they were going to breed their lovely dog and offered one of her pups, what else could we say than yes?
