A Rocky Mountain Hi

Have browsed the forum for info and advice, but thought I'd join. We got our first golden about 15 month ago, and he is a much loved member of our family (me, my bride of 25 yrs., and 3 boys 19, 13,& 11).

Here's a picture of Toby along with our youngest boy. The two of them got 2nd place in the final performance at their obedience training class - only lost to another golden who was a bit more mature.

Best regards,

AM.

Ahhhhh, gee thanks! We're kinda partial, but we like to call Toby, "The world's most beautiful dog".

Last summer, at a soccer tournament, another soccer dad was wanting to go for a walk between games. He asked if he could take Toby for a stroll around the multi-field soccer complex. Upon his return, he exclaimed.... This dog's a CHICK MAGNET!

AM.

Here's a couple more pics. I need to take some more, as most of these are several months old.
