I'm sure she'll outgrow the diarrhea sooner than later..

Brandi's parents are Theo and Alisia. Who are Kobe's parents? It's so cool finding someone on here who bought their puppy from the same breeder!! May I ask what you thought of him and his dogs?

That's awesome, Kobe's parents are Theo and Victoria! They are half brother/sister!
I like Lee, he seems like a good guy. Unfortunately I didn't have a lot of information about him and his breeding before I got Kobe, so I just went with instinct! I couldn't find any negatives either, so I guess it's a plus right? Sometimes Kobe is a little too rough (sometimes aggressive) for a golden and gets me wondering if it has to do with poor breeding but I haven't found any correlation for sure, so I just keep doing my best with him. He's a great dog, just going through teen phase and very stubborn, hopefully it will pass sooner than later.
Can't wait till they're able to meet and play!

Welcome!

Brandi is adorable. I could grab her and cuddle her right now...

Sounds like you're doing really well with her. Be sure to check out the puppy pages, old posts, etc. do a lot of searching and you'll find just about everything you'll want to know.

One thing I would advise is to wait at least a month before switching her food. Most breeders recommend keeping puppies on the same food for a few weeks until they are settled in their new homes. Otherwise it's a lot of change to throw at a baby. Be sure to make the change gradually, over a period of time.

Good luck! Hope you'll keep posting pix of your little girl.

Welcome to the forum, I'm a sucker for the darker colored pups!

I'd caution against changing food in a young pup--with all of the changes going on, I find it subjects the pup to diarrhea even when doing a slow food change.

If you're interested in learning more about your breeder, there has been a thread on this forum that discussed him, not sure if the OP went the breeder or not.

So cool we have relatives!! I love it! I liked Lee as well. I wasn't crazy about how he keeps his dogs after I went there and saw for myself, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything will be fine with Brandi. I can't wait until we can get our pups together to play!!

I hope you consider buying health insurance for your little one. It's cheapest when they're young, before any problems arise. I hope she's healthy, healthy, healthy, but it pays to be covered IMO.
