My parents have a Golden and he is the absolute WORST when it comes to eating sticks/rocks/pieces of asphalt/poop...you name it, he's eaten it! He has terrible intestinal problems and has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism (pretty sure it's hypo not hyper..I get them mixed up!). Anyway, after NUMEROUS trips to the vet for tummy problems and intestinal blockages, my mom FINALLY had to get a muzzle for him. It's a black nylon fabric one with mesh across the mouth...not uncomfortable to him at all. He just couldn't be trusted and my mom was spending so much $$$ on unecessary vet bills. Maybe it's a Golden thing? So, moral of the story, he may not grow out of it. It's a good thing he's so adorable!
