That is so beautiful! Dogs just seem to know who needs them, don't they?

I have a sister who is 12 years old with Sotos Syndrome. Because of her condition, she tends to be a bit too rough with animals, but Jane is an angel. She tolerates all of Kendall's rough hugs and fur pulling.

I have to agree that these goldens know who really needs them! One of my sons is on the autism spectrum as well - he will never have a ton of friends - the social scene is a constant struggle for him. But our pets will be forever his! Tucker listens to our son as if he's one of the grownups - it is so neat to see them interact. My other two kids have a much more typical pet relationship with Tuck. But with my 8 year old, our Tucker truly has something special going on.

Hey! I have a 2 yr old daughter and a 5 yr old son. My daughter's birthday is three days short of a year to my goldens birthday. I had some complications with the pregnancy and was hospitalized for a few weeks, my son had never really been away from me at that point and with my health my husband was by my side. Darby's company seemed to keep a little normalcy for my son while we weren't there with him. Also, by the time my daughter came Darby had manners so no complaints there. All in all I'd say Darby came along at the perfect time for us

Always had adult dogs when kids were living at home. After 2 nights with new puppy I realize that was a smart way to go for me! Bentley will not sleep at night, it's like having a newborn..I'm exhausted LOL

I hear you on that one! A puppy is like an instant toddler! They don't wear diapers so potty training is going on, they're very mobile and into everything and they don't sleep much at night. We got our first golden 3 years before having kids so my kids have never lived with a puppy and I've never raised a puppy and kids together. This last month with Charlie has definately been a learning experience! My daughters are 5 and 9. The 9 year old is great with him but my 5 year old gets a little scared when he's excited.

We have a 3-year-old human girl, a 4-year-old human boy, a 10-year-old male tabby cat, a 10-year-old male Cocker Spaniel, and now a 6-year-old male Golden. We have a lot of fun around here. Manchee, the Golden, has really taken to my son. He lays his head on his lap and "grumbles" at him to tell him he likes the petting! I love watching them together. He also has a ritual now where he says goodnight to both the kids when we tuck them in for the night. It's soooo sweet.

Training a puppy is so much harder when there are kids involved!!! I have 7 year old twins (girl is totally in love with Kali) and a 4 year old boy who could care less about the dog. Kali is 5 months old now. Our recently deceased golden was so well trained before the kids were born you hardly knew she was here!

We've had Billy from a pup - now 11 months.

He's spent a part of every day with my two daughters (5 & 7 years old) - he absolutely adores them. Play is part supervised to make sure it doesn't get too rough, simply because he is now quite a strong dog. I don't think he would purposefully hurt the girls but he is strong enough to bowl them over in play.

Both girls can walk him on the leash without him pulling (this is supervised as well of course).

He is very good with kids - but we always use a bit of cation and common sense when he plays with them.

I voted NO because my kids are grown and don't live at home anymore. We had puppies and dogs while they were growing up, but they weren't Goldens. I can't imagine having small children with Sage, because she is pretty mouthy. Not to mention this is like having a baby in itself. We are expecting our first grandchild in July, Sage should be 7 months old by then and hopefully through the worst of the puppy stage. We shall see!!!!
