Smile Hello!

Hello everyone! I am a yellow lab owner... we always wanted a golden, but my husband's allergies led us to choose the closest "lower maintainance" version... our little man Jim is 6 months old and the light of our lives. We are going to adopt either a golden or another lab as soon as we get a house (in the coming months) depending on how much room there is... I am posting some pics of my favorite golden retriever and me, my best girl (my cousin's dog) Mya! She is the sweetest girl in the whole wide world...

Welcome!!! Be sure to share Jim with us, too!!! I have sneak previews and knew what a cutie he is!!!

We love all retrievers here, and they even put up with my funny skinny dogs here (Whippets).

Glad you decided to join!

Welcome to the forum! We need to see pictures of Jim, too. Where do you boat? My doggies love to boat, too. My lab Finn says hi to Jim!

Still crazy after all these years.

Welcome. That's an interesting comment you make about allergies. I am horribly allergic to dogs but am cursed with loving them. I've owned labs up until I most recently got my golden. To me there is no real difference in how much you would be allergic to either. From my experience I am allergic to every dog. However I do believe there is a common mis-conception that goldens shed more than labs. Of course each dog is different but I actually believe my labs shed more however it was often times harder to see with their short hair. No mistaken Daisy definitely sheds but it's often easier to find and clean up because it tends to furball in corners and is just generally easier to see due to it's length. Again each dog is different. I address my allergies with medication, brushing the dog at least every other day or so and I have "safe" zones ie no dogs allowed areas in my house which for us is mainly our bedroom.
