A golden opportunity for furry love and loyalty

Bob Hope is coming to Barrie on Friday night. After a 16 hour flight from Istanbul, Turkey and a long drive from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, Bob or "Bobby" will arrive at his new home with buddies Lucky and Jake. They are among 18 stray Golden Retrievers being rescued from Istanbul by the non-profit group Golden Rescue.

“I didn’t rescue you, you rescued me."

We all know that welcoming a Golden into your life means getting back way more than you ever give. That’s why we created Rescue Me, a YouTube video with original music, to capture the exceptional combination of love, joy, and tenderness that these beautiful creatures bring when we let them into our lives.

Dogs are People, too

FOR the past two years, my colleagues and I have been training dogs to go in an M.R.I. scanner — completely awake and unrestrained. Our goal has been to determine how dogs’ brains work and, even more important, what they think of us humans.
