Finally got my golden!

Hi, I have been lurking here for awhile (probably a year), and we recently got ourselves into a housing situation that allowed us to have a dog!

Meet Rodney the sleepy golden:

He was born November 1, 2012, so he's almost 11-weeks-old now. He is sleeping through the night and knows a few commands really well: sit, down, wait (for food), and touch (his nose to our palm).

We're working on loose-leash walking, come, leave it, and drop it. He's doing great in his puppy class, and everyone there loves him. He is pretty laid back about other dogs and mostly just wants to play, even when they growl at him.

I'll be posting here often, I think, as we come across new problems.
