So precious, your daughter Claire is beautiful.

Things work out the way they're suppose to, just think how much you would have missed out on if you hadn't adopted Max. You wouldn't be seeing how great he is with your daughter. There's nothing better IMO than Goldens and children, there's a very special love and bond between the two.

They're all so precious! That's why I love Golden Retrievers because they are so patient and gentle with children. This is making me want to have my second child!

This is soooooooo very sweet. Made me melt!
Your golden is soooo super calm and gentle. Your bub is soooo cute.
They both will be best of friends as they grow together.

He is so sweet and so gentle with Claire. It's amazing how nurturing he is at such a young age. Beautiful

Those are such sweet videos. How lucky your daughter is to be growing up with a golden! My favorite was the tummy time video, where he pushes the toy toward her.

Your boy has a stellar temperment, that was really perfection between them. Whatever training you've done to make him comfortable with her has been a complete success. Actually, I would love for you to share how you worked with him.

Sorry for the 6 1/2-year delay in my response. I didn't receive an email notice that someone had responded to my initial post, so I just saw it. To answer your question, we always walked the dog and let him burn a bunch of energy before we'd put our baby with him. We knew that he'd never intentionally hurt her, but we wanted to help mitigate the risk of an accidentally-harmful encounter, such as smacking our daughter with his frantically wagging tail.

As an update for anyone who sees this: Sadly, we just lost this wonderful dog to lymphoma last week. Our daughter is now 7 1/2, and she's only known 3 days of her life without that dog. We are indeed grateful for the images that we created back then, and as we're coping with our loss, we're revisiting those images quite a bit.
