Adopted my first dog today, Simba! [first post, will update as he grows]

We drove two hours today to the snowy mountains and villages of Mont Tremblant (Quebec) to adopt this cute little guy!

This is our first dog ever (we have a 3 year old adorable cat), and what better dog to get than a Golden Retriever! I decided to call him Simba, since he looks like a little lion to me!

We don't have him yet as he needs to spend one more week with his mommy, but we couldn't be more excited! We were trying to rescue a dog, but it proved to be a difficult and long process (6+ months of searching for a dog that fits me and my family's needs, and my depression was getting worse), so we settled on finding a reputable golden breeder. His parents were very loving and excited! I can't wait for puppy kindergarten and to teach him to be a well-behaved, fun dog.

I'll update this thread with pictures of him as he grows!
