The three “Mississippi Golden Gurls” win hearts regularly with their cute posts on social media and are a source of joy to their owner, Gresham, and her husband. Their owners mutual adoration for golden retrievers helped them fall in love and get married.

“I am a former two sport Division I athlete (played basketball and volleyball). My husband and I were both scholarship athletes at the same University, but it was our love for golden retrievers that ultimately brought us together, following our graduation,” Gresham said. “We have now been married for nine years and have three beautiful golden retrievers together.”

Her three golden retrievers, RowanOak, Remington and Idgie Ruth, have their own personalities as well, RowanOak does “push-ups,” Remington can do “kangaroo hops” and Idgie Ruth is an expert at smiling “on command.”

They also share a common gift of search-and-rescue missions, as well. as they recently went viral on Facebook for helping to locate a baby bird who was struggling to stay afloat in a backyard pool. “The day we found the bird, I had taken the girls outside and was videoing them while they were playing. Shortly thereafter, the girls caught my attention by frantically skimming the side of our pool,” Gresham said.

“I immediately ran over and saw there was a baby fledging that had fallen into the water, and the girls were trying to help it.” The video showed the dogs concerned for the bird who was struggling to keep its head up. Gresham then moved her dogs to a side so she could lift the bird out of the water with a net, later she returned the bird to its nest.

“When I brought the bird out of the water, the girls showed so much concern for it. They were being incredibly gentle and wanted to make sure it was ok,” Gresham said. Gresham says this is not the first time for the dogs to help an animal in need as they have helped rescue baby rabbits and birds as well.

Gresham said, “It never ceases to amaze me how much concern these golden retrievers show for people and other creatures. They are so gentle, sensitive, and compassionate. They’re even empathetic.” Even though Gresham and her husband don’t have children at the moment, they believe their three beloved dogs “will always be our family.”

“I have had golden retrievers for 23 years now. I’ve come to realize what I believe is most important to them, and it’s three things: Giving love, Receiving love, & Getting TREATS!” Gresham said. “Honestly, I think they could do without the latter! All these wonderful creatures want is LOVE!”

She says, “Today, the mission of our social media pages is to bring joy to people across the globe, through the love we have for our goldens,” Gresham said. “Our girls bring us so much happiness every single day, so I find it only fair to share that same happiness with the world.”

This story is a real treat for all the dog lovers out there, all they want from their owners is love and all we want is some puppy therapy.
