Having an intact girl is a pain - she gets moody, cranky and then there's the month or so we can't go do much because she's in season and she drives me nuts because she's bored. Twice a year. I'm not the breeder, her breeder will take her back for a litter or two down the road after she's gotten her clearances and so on done. I am quite happy to 'order' a puppy and bring it to the house ready to housebreak and bond with me at 8 weeks. That's the really fun part anyway, the nursing mom and litter is a ton of work.
My two goldens are slightly related and similar in some ways, different in others, but for sure very different than their moms and even siblings, so it's not like you'd get the 'same' thing again just because it was an offspring. If you got her from a good breeder, when the time comes let them know what you love about your girl and they should be able to find a pup that's perfect for you. Or even go through rescue so you can meet the older dog...
