Bark at the Bosh

Okay, so as a dog, I don’t really know much about sports. But I do know one thing — I love balls. Tennis balls. Footballs. Baseballs. Yep, love all of them. Oh, and I also love the Tar Heels, because well, duh, I’m a Tar Heel.

My name is Holden the Golden, and I’m a Tar Heel.

You want to know something else that’s super cool? There is another golden retriever out there (who may be even cooler than me, but shh don’t tell anyone!), who also is a Tar Heel. You may have heard of him, or have seen him on the news. REMINGTON, trained by paws4People®, works as a Rehabilitative Facility Dog with the UNC Baseball Team, and is definitely the team’s fluffiest member. He is also super smart, knowing over 100 commands. I only know like.. five. It’s fine.

Go Tar Heels. Go Cute Dogs.

REMINGTON and I got to hang out recently, and some cool humans let us wear these super nice Nike baseball jerseys made for two-armed people (Ha! Humans…), so that we could feel like real ball players. As we were just hangin’ in Boshamer Stadium, we got to talking. He let me know that there is this “pawesome” event where you can bring your dog to the UNC Baseball stadium, because why wouldn’t you want to watch a baseball game with your best “furiend”? This event is called Bark at the Bosh, and trust me, you’re definitely going to want to be there. Oh, and guess what? I will be there, too! I am so excited to be back on campus, with lots of new furry friends and their humans. I will be there to take photos and to give lots of puppy kisses (of course!). When is the first Bark at the Bosh? Tomorrow at 6 p.m. Can’t make tomorrow’s game? No need to worry because you’ll have another chance to bring your pup to Bark at the Bosh #2 on April 24 at 6 p.m.

Mom, stop trying to make fetch happen. It’s not going to happen.

I just can’t wait to see you at Bark at the Bosh tomorrow. Make sure to keep your eyes out for my new friend, REMINGTON, who will be on the field with his favorite baseball players. Get ready for a PAWSitively good time. Hey, I did hear that this is the Year of the Dog, so you can bet you’ll be seeing me a lot more over this next year.

With baseballs and love for the Heels,
Holden the Golden

Welcome Home, Sophie

So I think it’s time that I share the news with you. I am no longer the only (fur) child. Yep. This is real. I now have a sister. *rolls eyes* Ok, ok. I’m just kidding’, I’m actually super excited.

Last July, my pawrents adopted miss Sophie girl from a family friend. They had no idea what she was like since they had never met her, but felt that this was the right thing to do. So they left me all alone (seriously?!) and drove three hours (both ways!) to pick her up. And here we are.


When we first met, we both were like “OMG dog, you’re a dog, I’m a dog.. let’s be friends!”, but I don’t think either one of us realized it was a real thing. Like we just thought it was a temporary thing. LOL JOKES ON US because Sophie has been welcomed into the family with open arms (and paws).

The cutest siblings you ever did see

She’s the prettiest girl ever and also the craziest. I try to show her how she should act in public (since I’m like a superstar or whatever), but she still doesn’t understand. It’s fine, she will get it one day. In the meantime, we love to play tug-o-war, stalk each other  and both get all the pets we possibly can. Sophie also likes to make the prettiest of faces..

I such a pwetty girl

She’s not insta-famous, but she definitely could be. She brings my pawrents lots of love and laughs, and she is a buddy for me to have endless play sessions with. Have you adopted a second dog into your family? We’d love to hear your story and share even more of Sophie’s with you!

With cuddles and learning to share,
Holden the Golden
