Thanks for the quick responses, I appreciate it. Yes, that would be great if you could PM the email address of the breeder and I'll reach out to them.
To answer the questions, I started my search by looking on this forum for recommendations and then visited the websites before contacting some of the breeders. I've also found some of the breeders while looking at the lineage on k9 data. I haven't searched on FB but that's a good suggestion, I'll try that. I've been looking at breeders in IL, IN, WI, OH, MI and MO. I would be open to flying; I wasn't sure what the logistics would be for being able to fly with the pup in the cabin but I thought I had read how others have flown with their puppy. I haven't gone through my local/regional Golden Retriever club but can do that as well.
Since the house is so empty and quiet, waiting to hear back from a breeder seems like an eternity. I would just love to find a breeder and even if I had to wait months for the puppy, I would feel some comfort in knowing we were getting our new little family member.
