We have detailed hundreds of famous folks who are owned by Goldens, many wonderful authors included in the ranks.
One of these celebs is David Rosenfelt, who just loves to utilize Golden themes in his GReat books of fiction.
David actually describes himself at his site as a novelist with 37 dogs! He further says this:
A number of years ago, I left the movie marketing business, to the sustained applause of hundreds of disgruntled producers and directors. I decided to try my hand at writing. I wrote and sold a bunch of feature films, none of which ever came close to being actually filmed, and then a bunch of TV movies, some of which actually made it to the small screen. It’s safe to say that their impact on the American cultural scene has been minimal.
About five years ago, my wife and I started the Tara Foundation, named in honor of the greatest Golden Retriever the world has ever known. We rescued almost 4,000 dogs, many of them Goldens, and found them loving homes. Our own home quickly became a sanctuary for those dogs that we rescued that were too old or sickly to be wanted by others. They surround me as I write this. It’s total lunacy, but it works, and they are a happy, safe group.
Here is David with some of the dogs he has rescued.
Here are many of his Golden themed books. Enjoy!
