We all have days where we could really use a massage, and lucky for this Golden Retriever, she has her own personal masseuse. Gryff the cat is Ellie the Golden's best friend and loves to offer his expert massage services. It's absolutely adorable.

Watch as he massages Ellie's back and basically lulls her to sleep.



Who said dogs and cats can't be best friends? Ellie and Gryff are the perfect example of dogs and cats getting along great together. And Ellie certainly appreciates the massage. You can see just how relaxed she is.

Did you know massage can actually benefit your dog's physical and mental health? It's true! Learn more about massaging your dog, here.

And while Ellie is in for a good nap, Cosmo the Golden Retriever is all about play time outside. He's playing with the water hose with his owner, and man, he is loving it. He can't decide if he should drink it or jump over it.

Check it out.


How funny is Cosmo! He's got so much spunk and energy. And he clearly loves water, which makes sense because Golden Retrievers were bred to hunt water fowl.

Such a cute doggo. Somebody should sign him up for agility; he's clearly got the jumping thing down. Learn more about agility and other dog sports, here.
