just introducing ourselves

I just want to say HELLO to the Golden World out there. I am the proud Mom of my second golden, IKE. Our first, who melted my heart and left his mark on my life forever, was Samson, Sam, Sammie, Sammydog, and Nutter Pup's. God allowed us the honor of his presence for 12yrs,5mth,7days. He left us 1 year ago Jan8. I wish I had found this site before he passed. It would have helped.... Now Ike and I have this e-community to explore. I have enjoyed looking at everyones pics.....and cried, as I am sure many of you did, at Peanut's passing. Keep an eye out for Ike! He's a nut pup and I plan on showing the world!!! THANKS.....&THANK GOD FOR GOLDENS

Yes, pictures please! We love those adorable faces.

The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog...When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.- Senator George Vest, 1870

Welcome to the board! Ike is a cutie. We would love to hear stories and see pics of your Sammy too. I'm glad you joined us.
