Rayna just turned 10 years old, and is our 3rd Golden Retriever since 1980.  Besides riding in convertibles with her Doggles and harness- Rayna loves chasing tennis balls in and out of the water (Marymoor Off Leash Area especially) – and spending quality time with us and her BFF Maddie (our 9 year old Australian Shepherd).  This is an awesome arrangement and ‘pairing’ because Maddie’s necessary dog job is to keep track of Rayna – and (in typical Golden Retriever fashion) Rayna doesn’t mind and enjoys the attention and Maddie’s company.  We’d love to keep Rayna around forever and have high hopes that the Dog Aging Project will help extend all dogs’ lives.  We’re glad to be Citizen Scientists and support this amazing project.
