Golden Rescue Made Prime Time TV on the RICK MERCER REPORT

The 2017 Golden Rescue Picnic was once again filled with fur-flying frivolity and Rick Mercer and his crew joined in the fun at the beautiful Viamede Resort to capture it all.  Yep, that’s right, the Golden Rescue picnic now lives furever as a cherished segment of the highly popular Rick Mercer Report – CBC’s weekly celebration of all that’s good in Canada. 

Throughout the day, Rick and his crew sampled an array of picnic highlights and learned what it meant to be a devoted retriever believer.  The feature event, as expected, was the ooey, gooey, sticky, peanut butter slop fest which we named The Rick Lick – a sight to behold. 

Thank you to all those who made this year’s picnic an event to remember and to the Rick Mercer production team for choosing to spotlight our passion for rescuing Goldens in need. Watch now to see Rick get licked!
