A cute story to make your Monday a little better.
Some of you read Kiko's story in our feed not to long ago. And Learned that Kiko wasn't with me for three long years and I thought I wasn't going to see him again.
Also know that Watson is like kiko's therapy dog. Watson helps Kiko with his anxieties and teach him to trust other dogs. That life can be fun and joyful if you get out there learn how to love and trust.
I put together a little video showing the strong bond that these two golden retriever brothers have and how their friendship and love for each other is everything.
Hope you enjoy this video and hope it inspired you as well.

When winter gives you gloomy, cloudy, rainy weather on a weekend you stay in watch movies with your family and enjoy a nice calm day

So we got to try a new shampoo and conditioner and so far we are loving it. It doesn't only smell good but I love how soft my pups fur is too.

Do you know who Is Kiko?
Kiko is that golden dog with the goofy smile you see on our feed.
But Kiko has a sad, complicated story.
Kiko suffers from really bad anxieties. We have to be extra careful with him. He has shown signs of aggression towards some dogs when he is stressed or feels insecure. He is good with all people but he could be misunderstood at times. So his family (us) try our best to make him feel safe.
Kiko was given to me as a companion in 2011. I spent time with him during his puppy stage. He was almost a year old when he was taken and I didn't see him for three long years.
He was lost and I thought I'd never see him again.
My hope was gone and after those three hard years pasted I was ready for a new companion. I really wanted a puppy to hold and love. So that's when Watson came into my life.
But life can surprise you at times. And destiny decided that Kiko and I should be reunited.
So a good friend drove him all the way from California where he was found to Washington.
Kiko was a bit skinny, had fleas and was missing some hair. But the worst was his fear and the insecurity he has.
Watson was about 6 months when we introduced Kiko to him. Slowly I learned that Watson was helping him with his anxieties.
They quickly became inseparable and best friends.
Although this Instagram account started just about Watson it has become more than that.
It's about two golden retriever brothers who found each other to love and help one another.
To inspire people with there story and to teach others and myself about compassion, love and the true value of friendship.
I think I wasn't meant to be Kiko's best friend but Watson for sure was.
And even though I love Kiko so much I know that Watson is his true love and if that makes him happy it makes me happy.
Hope you liked reading about Kiko's rescue story.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Today I’m joining my fellow animal accounts and @dogtalesrescue to help save the innocent lives of 21 dogs. We need your voice too! PLEASE READ BELOW
More than one year ago, a group of dogs were rescued from a fighting ring in Tilbury, Ontario. These dogs spent their entire lives being forced to fight, and endured horrific cruelty at the hands of humans. When the dogs were first rescued, animal lovers rejoiced. But that joy soon turned to devastation, when, just a few short months after their rescue, an application was placed before the court by the Ontario SPCA requesting to have 21 of the dogs euthanized. This is a critical time, and each and every one of you can play an important part in saving the lives of these dogs. Together, we CAN do this!
If you believe that these dogs deserve a chance at life and would like to help, here's what you can do:
SHOW THAT YOU CARE: Share a photo of yourself or your dog holding a sign that reads #savethe21 and encourage your friends to do the same. Remember to use the tag #SaveThe21 in your caption!
CALL TO ACTION: Go to www.SaveThe21.com (link is in our bio) and under the tab "How You Can Help" scroll down and sign up to Join the campaign! You can also find printable signs for step here!
Every post helps so we really hope you will join us!
Thank you 🏼

If you are a pet parent and your four legged friend is important just like any other member of your family you are always concerned about his health.
We have been feeding Watson and Kiko Organix Pet Food. They love it and it helps them be up for more amazing adventures.
Organix pet food is made by Castor and Pollux a company that makes organic dog food.
The golden squad got together again.

I love how Instagram brings amazing people and canine friends together not only that but we make some beautiful friendships here as well.

When I'm out in the wilderness I can't help myself but to feel free.
There is a spark of joy and a wild me that only comes out when I'm one with nature.
When all does feelings come rushing in at ones the adrenaline of adventure kicks in and no one can't stop me then.
Lately I've been asked a lot the same question.
What kind of camera do I use?
I use a Canon 7D MarkII.
This camera is often used for wildlife and sports photography. It's great for taking action photos.
I do however don't recommend this camera if you are a beginner.
It was very hard for me to get use to this camera being new to photography.
I went back and used a Canon t2i. This camera was great for a beginner like me two years ago.
It's been two years now since I started photography. I've been trying new things every couple of months.
I've tried studio photography and even though I did like it it wasn't exactly what I wanted.
I also tried doing heavy photoshop in my pictures and learned that I don't like it either.
So far I love to keep things simple. See the simplicity of a photograph is beautiful.
Also been absolutely enjoying photographing natures beauty and spending more time outdoors.
I'm still learning photography everyday and trying new things.
I'm almost to the point that I know what kind of photos I will like to take and I do know that I would love to do it for a full time job. I enjoy it too much not to do it every day for as long as I'm in this beautiful world.
Hope I was of some help for some of you that are beginning to explore the photography world by sharing about my experience
If you trust him he will trust you.
Keep in mind that a dog life is shorter then yours and that they learn to trust and love unconditionally in matter of days.
It's up to you to keep that strong bond between you and your four legged friend by showing him that you are as loyal to him as he is to you.
Long working days require a good night sleep
