Hello and welcome,
We would love to see pictures of your Jim. We love all dogs here no matter the breed. Your cousin's girl is beautiful and I can see why you love her. She looks like a love. I have alot of allergies and goldens dont bother me anymore than any other type of dog. Good luck and I hope you get one.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, I see a few of you from the lab board, thanks for the tip to check out this one too Aqua! I did not mean to exclude my OWN beautiful boy : ..... I thought his pic was in my signature! I tried posting my Photobucket slideshow of him but couldn't quite get it to work... so I put in my favorite pic of the two of us. Maybe my sig will post NOW? Lets see...

Oh, and as for the allergies, I guess I did buy into the whole getting a shorter haired dog thing, maybe it was ignorant, but I guess I just applied the whole logic of "it's better to have short haired cats" (which we also have) to getting a dog... well, since our recent move my husband's allergies have improved enormously, proving my theory that he was more allergic to the mold where we lived than he was to the animals. SO... as I said, we may be rescuing a golden when we get our new house. It will either be that or another lab! They seem like basically the same kind of dog to me except for hair length... and I think goldens are just so beautiful! I wish I could swipe Mya, but my cousin loves her more than life and would have none of it, lol...

As for boating, that picture was taken at Riffe Lake in Washington where we camped last summer. We will be headed to Mayfield Lake this August with both Jim and Mya, if anyone lives close by you should come on down for a playdate in the water!

Now my edited signature features my Jimmy boy! Anyone who can help me post my slideshow of him would be appreciated... I tried cutting and pasting the code that works from the lab board but it didn't work.
