Morris Animal Foundation, the Golden Retriever Club of America, and the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study Volunteers announce the Parade of Heroes. This parade is ONLY for study-participating golden retrievers as an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the dogs enrolled in the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. Please join us for a tribute to these courageous goldens, their loving families, and the dedicated volunteers supporting this study.

Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is a prospective, observational study that is following approximately 3000 golden retrievers, throughout their lifetimes, to identify the risk factors for cancer and other common diseases. For more information, please visit: "". Submit your entry with a brief (100 words or less), typewritten narrative about your hero golden and include one funny or quirky thing about your dog. A special committee will select a few stories to read during the parade. The committee reserves the right to edit submitted material.
