and welcome! I'm from MA, also...just outside of Worcester. My first GR passed away May of '05. It seemed very "goldenless" around here with no goofy golden so now I have 3--2 males and 1 female (who is named after my 1st golden) !!!
As for the questions about the dandruff...have you tried using salmon oil in her food? This works wonders on dry, winter skin. Another thing you might check is to see if there is any corn in Mollie's food. My 1st golden suffered from allergies her whole life and it wasn't until after she had passed away that I found out about the problems that corn can cause in goldens.
It's great to have you join us but we require lots and lots of pictures of puppies on this forum...hahahaha
