Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular breeds of dogs in the world in large part because of their reputation as having the sweetest personalities out there. The large number of photos and videos of Goldens enjoying a snuggle, cracking a smile or working diligently as service animals just reinforces the good nature of the breed.
And if all the testimonials weren’t proof enough, now comes this sweet video of Sookie the Golden Retriever holding an egg in her mouth without cracking it.
@laurdreyfuss posted a video of Sookie’s egg-holding skills and writes, “My aunt read online that a Golden retriever’s mouth is so gentle they can hold an egg in their mouth without cracking it so she tried it on her dog and well…”

Although Sookie holds the egg gently between her teeth and wags her tail the entire time, she is a bit reluctant to give it back. It takes some coaxing on mom’s behalf to finally get the egg back and for Sookie to realize the egg is not the treat.
@laurdreyfuss adds, “Sookie is a queen and can also balance anything on her head and nose (as long as she gets the okay to eat it afterwards).” Except for the egg, that is.
