Golden Retriever with Baby

My wife and I adopted a 6mo golden retriever pup about a month before we had our first <human> child. Brilliant, I realize.

That said, we've made a concerted effort to ensure that the baby and pup bond, and we've made a decent effort to document the bonding process on video. I've uploaded several videoclips to YouTube, and I've pasted a few links below. Enjoy.

Baby's first meeting with the pup (baby 1 day old):

Baby at 8 months, pup at 14 months:

Baby at 11 months, pup at 18 months

Those videos are so cute! Thank you!
I experienced with all my Goldens so far, that they are great around kids of any age and very gentle.

Those are very sweet. It's great that you put so much time and thought into making sure Max and baby started off on the right foot. So many people don't do anything at all!
