Hello and Thank You!

I am new to this board and new to Golden Retriever ownership. We picked up Gus from the breeder on Saturday. He is 8 weeks old. I just wanted to say that this website has been invaluable in leading up to his arrival as well as his first few days home. It has given me guidance on everything from what food and water bowls are the best to what that foam around his nose might be. Just wanted to say thank you!

Welcome! This forum was a lifesaver for me, just knowing that others were having the same or similar experiences that you were having was very reassuring.
