One of THOSE people

Well, it happened to me. Hubby mentioned getting a dog, the four of us all took compatibility tests online to find the perfect breed-we all got perfect match for goldens!-the boys started pushing for a puppy, more research was done, a breeder we liked was found, and now I am one of THOSE people.
The kind who show strangers pictures of their dog on their phone and spend hours online reading about everything from the perfect food (SO stressful!), to vitamins, to crate training, to house training and beyond. And today I did Black Friday shopping online for a puppy we don't even have yet.
I can't help myself!!!

Hi everyone-so glad to join your community. I have already gleaned much wisdom from these boards and am thankful you all take the time to share the ups and downs and lessons learned along the journey with your precious goldens.

Our sweet baby girl, named Thelma Lou, will be coming home with us in a little over two weeks. We are working hard to be ready for her and I do think we may be a little crazy to be bringing a puppy home in the middle of the Christmas season but we are sooooo excited to get her here!

I'll post some pictures when I find my phone. She's adorable.
