The days are getting shorter, but that's not stopping this adorable golden retriever pup from waking up with the sun. The little guy looks like he's glowing while out for a morning walk. Instagram user chancethegolden shared the sweet snap with us this week, which motivated us to get outdoors and enjoy the changing season. Here's what chancethegolden had to say about the pic:
"9 weeks old — sunrise hike."
Oh, Chance, we're smitten and totally want to snuggle with you after a long morning stroll.
Keep taking pictures of your adorable pets, uploading them to Instagram, remembering to tag them with #POPSUGARPets, and next Thursday we'll share another favorite from the week. And keep an eye out for upcoming Instagram challenges! Don't forget to follow POPSUGAR Pets on Instagram for pet inspiration and cute pictures of our favorite furry friends.
This retriever enjoys a good guitar riff, cracking a canine smile, and bobbing his head with the beat. But when the music stops, so does his golden groove!
These pups look pretty darn cute teaching us all about science! Even if you understand atoms, take a look at this video and let me know if you learn anything new . . . but try not to focus entirely on the adoro furry faces.
Must be a nice life, spending the weekend on a boat in Portofino, Italy! These super swimmers set sail with some fashionable dads, (Domenico) Dolce and (Stefano) Gabbana. With special harnesses for easy lifting back onto the boat, the two retrievers look like pro swimmers and retrievers, naturally. The dogs took turns fetching this familiar item — a Kong!
With a couple versions meant for wet-and-wild times, both the red Kong Aqua and this swirly blue Cool Water will come out on top, floating if it takes a dip. With an extra-long rope in lieu of the tuggable loop, it's possible to reach great lengths when you toss it. Check out the pictures to see for yourself!
Look who made a special visit to the Ugly Betty set – America Ferrera's two furry friends. The Golden Retriever named Buddy seems to be needing some extra love, while Lucy (the Great Dane) needs some extra warmth with that sleek coat. It's so nice to take time out of a busy filming day for some QT with her pets especially when that includes snuggles and kisses!
I wonder how often the doggies come to set, and whether either will make it onto the small screen sometime soon – I spot some true walk-on potential here with these scene stealers.

This not-too-golden retriever was recently spotted out with his human mom, Nicollette Sheridan. From the looks of it, lil Oliver was taking her shopping by pulling her around like that. – I wonder if he's paying?!
I'm loving his fancy neckwear since a bandana is an easy, celeb-endorsed addition to a collar. Not only did I find this affordable everyday bandana ($2.95), I think I even recognize it as similar to one that Thurman favors, too. Super cute!

I'm super excited for the latest episode of Animal Planet's new series, Dogs 101. Airing every Saturday at 8 p.m., each week it focuses on new dog breeds. Last week, we learned about five breeds (including my absolute fave . . . wink wink) but which will we meet this week? Find out in this slideshow.
It's been quite a while since we've seen a generous mama or unlikely BFFs – just when we were on a roll, the heartwarming tales seemed to dry up! Not so anymore as the latest comes in from Caney, KS, where a Golden Retriever stepped up, and stepped in, for a mama tiger who wasn't feeling so motherly towards her new cubs. Isabella will only take care of the babies for about a week (to get them past this critical state) at the Safari Zoological Park – the three little girls are growing quickly and will weigh in around 300 pounds when they are fully grown . . . much bigger than their foster mama.
No, not really, but look at that pose – he's a superstar! This piccy made Happsmjc decide that her cutie pie Golden Retriever Bexley – sorry, full name Bexley Macintosh – should be a model. From checking out the rest of his glamour shots, I would have to agree!
Congrats to Bexley and Happsmjc for being chosen for our Pet Pic of the Day! Don't forget to submit your pet photos to our Pet Pics group for a chance to see your furry friends on the pages of PetSugar!
