First Time Owner

We are from the UK and live in Derbyshire .Carla is the first dog we have ever owned .My husband and I never had dogs as children so we had very little dog knowledge or experience .
My husband and daughter ( age 13 ) have wanted a dog for years but I was the one who held back.
I did alot of research , we travelled miles looking at dogs and puppies .
We eventually were put in touch with a Golden breeder only half an hours drive from us .She was very reluctant at first to let us have one of her babies as we had never had a dog before . After checking us out she agreed we could have the last little girl in the litter who wasn't chosen .I now believe the saying " the best is left for last ".
Our breeder who breeds Gunhills Goldens has been fantastic ,she is so knowledgable and supportive.
Since having Carla our lives have changed she is wonderfull and makes my heart sing .
