Introducing...Willa the Wonder Pup

Hi! My name is Lisa and I adopted a very sweet 8 wk old golden on 1/19 from a rescue organization. Willa is now 10 weeks old and such a love! She's a curious and energetic snuggler and I'm so glad she's part of our family. I lost my much loved golden, Jackson, last May to kidney disease...he was 10 1/2 yrs. old and I had him since he was 9 wks old. I had planned to adopt a youngster (1 to 4 yr old) from the golden rescue org, but when I got up to the ranch there were 3 adorable fluff balls of love that had recently been rescued. I knew then and there I was in for a ride! Much like babies, I've forgotten what it's like to have a puppy...and I'm learning all over again! Looking forward to hearing other puppy experiences and sharing golden tips for years to come

Welcome! So sorry about your boy Jackson. I too lost my 10 year old to kidney disease in November 2012. My Dawson was a red Golden like Jackson. I also thought I would adopt an older dog once I was ready. But, my Golden Mix rescue puppy popped on my radar when I was not expecting and it seemed as if it was meant to be. He is 16 weeks old and very sweet also.

Toby's rescue story including a heart warming video of his rescue:

Toby, my Golden mix, born 10/1/12
Dawson, my heart dog, 11/3/02 - 11/9/12
