Got Golden? Known for their sunny, loving dispositions, Golden retrievers are among the most popular dogs chosen as family pets. Unfortunately, they're also among the most susceptible to cancer, which is the number-one killer of older retrievers. Because of this, the Morris Animal Foundation has launched the first wide-scale study into how and why dogs get cancer, and they're looking for 3,000 Golden retrievers to participate. Participation means agreeing to work with your vet to obtain annual exams and tests for your Golden retriever, allowing collection of any tumor samples, being willing to consider a post-mortem exam when your dog's life ends, and participating for the entire life of your dog -- 10 years or more.

When Debbie Catena wakes up at 6:25 a.m., it's not the beep of an alarm clock that gets her attention, but a nudge and a sniff from her golden retriever, Jacob. A childhood illness left Catena with 60 percent hearing loss in her right ear and completely deaf in her left ear. Jacob is a hearing dog that was paired with Catena, a 55-year-old Ellicott City resident, through Fidos for Freedom, a nonprofit organization based in Laurel that provides service dogs, hearing dogs and therapy dogs to residents of the Baltimore-Washington area.

For eight years, Trooper sniffed for drugs on Interstate 95, helping the Maryland State Police seize more than a ton of marijuana, cocaine and other drugs. The golden retriever with big brown eyes, floppy ears and spotted tongue was always excited about work, state troopers said. After an arrest, he would even trot into the room as the suspect was processed. Whenever his owner, Trooper 1st Class Colleen McCurdy, got ready for work and put her gun in the holster, the golden retriever would wait for her at the door.

Havre de Grace. -- You can imagine how excited we were out here in the provinces the other night when we switched on the government television station and saw who'd been sent to Baltimore to give us the hot skinny on health care.There on the screen, exuding compassion and power from a Johns Hopkins podium, were the beaming faces of the Three Wise Women: Donna Shalala, Barbara Mikulski and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A golden retriever named "Jazzy" is back with her family after a Christmas Day escape. Andi Vanko says on Christmas Day she was in the car with her boyfriend and mom when she saw the dog dash out into traffic on a Carroll County road. The group rescued the dog and continued driving to Vanko's sister's house where they were having Christmas dinner. The family found a tag on the dog that said "GRREAT," an acronym for Golden Retriever Rescue Education And Training. A call to the organization turned up the dog's owners in a database.

Lady , the golden retriever who graced Maryland state highway maps and gubernatorial Christmas cards, died last month. She was 13 and lived in the governor's mansion. One of many pets in the O'Malley menagerie, Lady came to the family 10 years ago when Gov. Martin O'Malley was mayor of Baltimore. A friend of a friend had some health problems and had to give her up. The O'Malleys, who then had three young children (the fourth came later), were looking for a dog that was housebroken.

I caught part of a radio call-in show the other day on which a vet was fielding questions about Addison's disease among basset hounds and a cocker spaniel's hypothyroid problem and what can be done about a bulldog who snores (he needs to lose weight), and it was interesting to discover the excellent medical care that dogs have come to expect these days. The vet was herself a dog parent, as she put it, and there was genuine feeling in her voice when she discussed the bassets' hormonal problems, something I haven't heard in the debate over health care for humans this summer.

I have the typical family featured in dog food commercials: one spouse, a couple of children, one dog. Others have more than one pet; yet I do not view them as peculiar, nor do I view people who have more than one child as peculiar. But people who have more than one spouse are definitely peculiar. Now that we've cleared that up ... I recently spent a week watching my brother-in-law's two golden retrievers and cat at his home, along with our dog. For the mathematically inclined, this is a total of four pets.

Jacqueline Falke, a Baltimore veterinarian, has sent out kits to her patients for the past month - not about doggie care, but about voting for her dog to become a national spokespooch. Wyatt, her boxer who lives with her in Cape St. Claire, was one of 100 dogs selected as finalists to become the "face" of Milk-Bone dog biscuits for 2009, to celebrate the doggie treat brand's 100th anniversary. Wyatt posed with a surgical hairnet and stethoscope to represent his lifesaving skills - he donates blood for dogs that need surgery.
