Maryland Newbie Here!

Hi all!

I've been stalking GRF for months now while deciding when / whether to bring a dog into our home. I'm excited to say that after doing plenty of research and soul searching, we have submitted a deposit with our preferred breeder and will (HOPEFULLY) be first time parents to a handsome golden boy in February!!! Not only will this be our first Golden, it will also be our first puppy altogether. I'm already a mom to 2 cats, but I'm so excited for the joy and challenge of raising a dog. Any and all advice is much appreciated!!

I will take my specific questions over to the puppy forum, just wanted to introduce myself!

--Amanda

Welcome and congratulations to your soon to be baby puppy. As you have seen, this is a great group here, ask and everyone will offer suggestions to help. Know the months will seem so long, but honestly now you can get the stuff you will need beforehand and the time will pass quickly.

Deb & My Golden Kids
Kye & Coop - the loves of my life
My little Biewer Yorkies - all 7 of them!
Sadie & Okey - my mini aussies

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.

Thanks! We're in southern Maryland, down in Calvert County. Definitely hoping that our golden loves the water because we're surrounded by it here!
