Man’s best friend may come in many canine forms and breeds, but few can deny the golden retriever’s rightful popularity.
Good natured, patient, and unfailingly loyal, the golden retriever is as appealing in attitude as it is in appearance.
If you’re among the lucky group of golden retriever owners or simply wish to give a tattoo nod (or pat on the head, shall we say) to the breed, a golden retriever tattoo is a classic–and classy–option.
Frequently employed as disability dogs, golden retrievers truly earn their keep leading the blind, calming those who suffer from PTSD, and acting as search-and-rescue aids. Golden retrievers can be seen at the sides of law enforcement officers and children alike, so readily able and willing are they to switch from guardian to lovable goofball. Truly, the golden retriever highlights everything we look for in a cherished pet.
A simple silhouette is just as dramatic as a full scale color rendering, and those who wish to honor a beloved retriever in their own family will often have the name inscribed around the image. Thanks to the golden retriever’s undeniable beauty, it’s extremely difficult not to come away with a show-stopping work of art.
As is often the case with the best kinds of pets, golden retrievers highlight qualities that are just as valuable in humans. It makes sense for the bright, compassionate and loyal man to admire the golden retriever, and commit his admiration in ink form. We could all learn a great deal from our canine companions, and the golden retriever is certainly a model example.
