My first Golden (Dani) came from a BYB through an Add in the Paper.
After I lost her to Cancer at 10.5 years old I called the Mile High Golden Retriever Club and got Bogart's Breeder's info. She had 3 Boys and 2 Girls. I never had a Male before. I love my Boy. After we lost our ZsaZsa (Australian Cattle dog in March of this year to old age she was 16) I got back in touch with Bogart's Breeder and she was actualy waiting for her female Golden to go into heat again. June 4th Cooper was born and beginning of August he came home. I got another awesome pup from her.
I always say that my ZsaZsa is reincarnated in Cooper.
He is bold, but sweet, intense but can be mellow nothing seems to bother him and he just goes with the flow. The boys are a great match so far.

Kye was from a show home, met the owner/breeder at an Intl show. Hubby had a heart attack and with his care, she couldn't take time with the pup she had kept. She was almost 5 mo when we got her.

Coop came from a family litter where grown kids took their pick, Coop was the Leftover pup. We had just gotten Kye and another pup was not in our plans, but think it was just ment to be. Now have 2 pups to double our fun!

Since we are going to fix both the pups when they are older we didn't care if they were male or female, but fate just gave us one of each.

Buddy was from humane society original name Brutus, I couldn't see a golden named brutus.
Lady was from lab rescue, (she had a soft spot for goldens) and her papers state her name is Lady.

This is my first of buying a dog and I wanted to get one that was what I was looking for. BaWaaJige was ment to be mine. I told my breeder what I wanted and told her and her husband to pick for me. When we got there I got to see all 3 of them and I loved the green collar guy when I walked around the corner. I was holding when I said to Sue which one do you think would fit what I want and she said you are holding him. Her husband said I thought you already told her which one we thought wold be best and sue repiled no. She just picked him up. Jige is the best pup ever he came from Topflight Kennels in WI

I was on vacation last summer and was just cruising the pet section on the local Craigs List. Found an ad looking to rehome an 11 month old golden. My husband and I had lost our last senior dog about two years prior.... and I was ready to have someone to love and spoil again. I wrote back to the ad- and the woman came out to our home with her son and Lola in tow to interview us. It all worked out beautifully- we paid a rehoming fee and Lola was ours! How fortunate for us to have this ray of sunshine enter our lives!
