    Getting a puppy

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    We have decided to bring a pup into our family and I couldn't be more excited. I'm dying to share with someone, b/c I'm keeping it a secret from my kids. If all goes well, a little boy from this litter will be coming home with us in January:



    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! This will be my second golden retriever, but loooooong time since I've had a dog at all, and I miss having a dog so much. My kids are going to go absolutely insane.

    Congratulations! While I'm biased (DH & I share our house/hearts with three goldens), nothing is sweeter than a golden retriever puppy!

    I can't wait to see more pictures!

    Do you have a particular one chosen? Or have you just decided on a male?
    I know, they look like little sausages! That one by himself.... he is cute. I saw him nursing in some of the other photos. He has a red mark on his head but I don't know why. Some of these will be show dogs... not ours, he will be just a companion.

    I am not sure if there is one in particular we are getting just yet. They were just born a week ago and we just put our deposit down a couple days ago. I think the breeder will look for compatabilities in a few weeks and help us choose. We can't see them in person until after their first shots in late December. I want to see them SO BAD!!!!

    Suggestion: look for the sleepy one. He'll be much less of a spaz.

    OMG - it brings back such memories!! When I was a kid, my mom bred Golden Retrievers. I see them now and immediately think "Do Doos!" (which is what we called them).

    Your kids are going to LOVE a golden puppy!
