She really was a cutie... I love the one of her cleaning her face. We have a senior thread on here, with photos of many people's dogs. You might enjoy seeing some of those...
I love that video too, what is the name of the senior thread? I've been looking but I guess I didn't look well enough because I can't find it.
My very first golden was a red golden and her name was Brandi. She lived to be 15. Your Brandy is beautiful.
Maybe it's the name?? What a coincendence they would both be dark. Do you have any pictures of your Brandi? Thank you for your kind words :-)
Welcome to the forum, feel free to ask as many questions as you need to. Take your time in finding the right breeder. Brandy looked like she was a sweetheart. You were very lucky to have her that long. Many of us have lost our Goldens younger than ten years old. They are great dogs and this a great group of members on this forum to help you.
Hey Mike, I plan on asking a lot of questions because I really do feel out of the loop. This week I've answered about 4 questionaires from different website breeders around the area and two have replied back. One told me about a dog show this weekend that I should go to. Told me the time that goldens would be showing and to show up then. I guess there would be a lot of breeders there and I can find out which ones I connect with the best and what kind of temperament their dogs have.
I know, I'm very fortunate to have had Brandy for so long. I hear from a lot of people that 17 is a very long time for any large breed. She would have lived longer if her hips didn't give out. She had such a strong heart. I look forward to talking with everyone on this forum and getting great advice. Also sharing my experiences as well. :-)
What a lovely old gal. The elders hold a very special place in my heart.
I am sorry for your loss.
Thank you, I love the gray faces in goldens, they look so wise.
Your Brandy was a beautiful and sweet girl. I am sorry for your loss, but happy you had 17 years with her.
We have had two female Goldens. The last, Chewy, a red girl, passed about 2.5 years ago at age 14.5. Shortly after, we got our big boy Max, who is a wonderful dog, but completely different from both girls.
Looking forward to your new journey. Have fun.
Thank you, I'm sorry to hear about your two female goldens. Do you like having a male golden now? I feel like I should get a male to not remind me so much of Brandy.
