golden retriever dog stars of instagram

There’s a reason why Golden Retrievers are so popular. They’re friendly, intelligent, and devoted — basically, what’s not to love?! This week, we checked in with the Golden dog stars of Instagram. Scroll down to see what they’ve been up to!

Unlike many dogs, Culver loves a good bath. “It’s just like a swimming pool,” he says. “Nothing wrong with that!”

Come on in, the waters fine 😉 🎾🐶❤🐾💕🧦 • • #goldenretriever #glowup #goldensofinstagram #goldenretrievers #goldenretrieverpuppies #goldenretrieverpuppy #pup #transformation #puppy #puppies #puppylove #puppiesofinstagram #photooftheday #picoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogoftheday #puppyoftheday #welovedogs #instacool #instadog #instadaily #workout #beforeandafter #gloriousgoldens #dog #instacute #instagram #monday #bath • • @goldenretrievers_ @goldenretrievers @goldenretrieversworld @golden.retriever.love @golden_retrievers_world @goldens_glee @goldens_ofinstagram @puppytrip @puppylove_retrievers @dogs.oflove @dog_features @seamusobrien @pupflix @seamusobrien @cutestpuppiesforyou @americankennelclub @icanteven

A love of water is often a characteristic of retrievers, and Culver is no exception. When he was done in the tub, it was time for a bigger place to play…

When you think you’ve lost your phone (but you were sitting on it the whole time) 🎾🐶❤🐾💕🧦 • • #goldenretriever #glowup #goldensofinstagram #goldenretrievers #goldenretrieverpuppies #goldenretrieverpuppy #pup #transformation #puppy #puppies #puppylove #puppiesofinstagram #photooftheday #picoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogoftheday #puppyoftheday #welovedogs #instacool #instadog #instadaily #workout #beforeandafter #gloriousgoldens #dog #instacute #instagram #tuesday #iphone • • @goldenretrievers_ @goldenretrievers @goldenretrieversworld @golden.retriever.love @golden_retrievers_world @goldens_glee @goldens_ofinstagram @puppytrip @puppylove_retrievers @dogs.oflove @dog_features @seamusobrien @pupflix @seamusobrien @cutestpuppiesforyou @americankennelclub @icanteven

But at the end of the day, all he really wanted to do was relax. There’s no better way to nap than on your back when you’re a tired pup.

Waking up on a Saturday like 🎾🐶❤🐾💕🧦 • • #goldenretriever #glowup #goldensofinstagram #goldenretrievers #goldenretrieverpuppies #goldenretrieverpuppy #pup #transformation #puppy #puppies #puppylove #puppiesofinstagram #photooftheday #picoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogoftheday #puppyoftheday #welovedogs #instacool #instadog #instadaily #workout #beforeandafter #gloriousgoldens #dog #instacute #instagram #weekend #iphone • • @goldenretrievers_ @goldenretrievers @goldenretrieversworld @golden.retriever.love @golden_retrievers_world @goldens_glee @goldens_ofinstagram @puppytrip @puppylove_retrievers @dogs.oflove @dog_features @seamusobrien @pupflix @seamusobrien @cutestpuppiesforyou @americankennelclub @icanteven

While Culver was all about the water this week, Cricket (the tennis ball-obsessed Golden) was perfectly content to stay on the couch. Every day is a good day to chill with your favorite tennis ball.

That little tongue and lip! 😍😍😍 He has my heart. #crickettheawesomedog

And then, when the couch wasn’t good enough, Cricket moved to the bed. He’s one snoozy canine…with an adorable tongue!

When nap time was over, it was snack time — and he spent it chowing down on a nice, juicy watermelon. It’s even more fun when you can share it with your best friend. That’s right, Cricket’s BFF is a tortoise!

TV-watching Golden Retriever Norman knew the weather was too beautiful this week to be in front of a screen. Instead, he took to the pool!

There’s nothing quite like taking a dip on a hot day…and finding a tennis ball!

Unlike Norm, Golden Retriever brothers Beau and Bear wanted to stay indoors. That’s what air conditioning is for, right? The pair was all about the snuggles!

Different day, same bed. How precious are these two?!

And if Bear and Beau weren’t cute enough, this goofy grin is like icing on top of the cake.

What was Lou up to this week? Just the usual…sticking his tongue out at Mondays.

He also cheered on his favorite soccer team during a day at the beach. (Don’t tell him who won the Cup!)

But a week in Lou’s life wouldn’t be complete without begging for scraps. No table food for you!

Finally, we have our fruit and veggie-loving friend, Basil. What did Basil snack on this week? Well, she started with some yellow watermelon.

Then took a break to play fetch

Then had some more watermelon!

She also joined Lou in the World Cup craze. Basil would make a fantastic team player!

Put me in, coach! ⚽️ #worldcupready #soccerpup #basilsgoldenlife
