Hello from Central Illinois

So glad I found this forum. After owning several mixed breed dogs, I decided that I wanted a full breed. I did much research to see which breed would be best for my husband and I and decided on a Golden Retriever. I found a wonderful breeder not far from us and we adopted our beautiful Daisy in May 2012. Daisy is now about 10 months old and the perfect dog. She is smart, even tempered, and a GREAT retriever (she retrieves the remote control and my shoes daily LOL). I couldn't be happier with our decision to get a Golden!!

Welcome, hope you'll share some pictures of your girl Daisy.

I lived in Central IL for about 5 years not far from the U of IL before moving to the NC Coast.

Thanks everyone! Here are 2 pictures of my girl. The first was when we went and picked her out. The second is her at about 8 months in November. She is a big girl!
