New Puppy!

Hello!
I am brand new to the forum, although I have been lurking for a while. Our family just adopted a 10 month old Golden. We brought him home today and introduced him to our other dog, a Brussels Griffon, and our cat. So far things are going well. He came to us house trained, but that is about it. He needs some training, but it hasn't taken him long to pick up "sit". He is our first Golden Retriever, so this is all a learning process for us.

Welcome to the group

What is his name?

When I rescued Buddy he was not even housebroken and was a complete nutcase- Now +7 months later he is a different dog.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Thanks for the warm welcome His name is Remington, but we are trying to decide if we are going to keep it. I like the name, but my husband had a cat named Remington that died a few years ago, so he is not sure about the name. We have 2 kids, 11 and 8 that have been suggesting names, but we have not found anything we can agree on yet.
I'm not sure how to post a picture. Do I need to use Photobucket or something like that?
