Hi from Cham and Hailey in MA

Hi, my name is Cham, and my Golden's name is Hailey. We live in Braintree, MA, and Zoe of FriendsofZoe is my Hailey's sister - non litter mates - just sisters. Liz sent me as you can imagine, and we both frequent the same forums. Hailey is 19 months old, and just recovered from major surgery last month. She hoovered the top off an Christmas ornament unbeknownst to sometime between the beginning of December and the tree coming down the first week in Jan. We were fortunate that the Vet operated when he did, because it was working its way into either the small intestine or the walls of the stomach, it was a bit hard to tell it's ultimate destination. But I do have a really cool souvenir.
I am currently unemployed Certified Medical Asst, thinking of going into a field that I can sit a bit more due to Arthritits in my knees and shoulder. My husband is a property accountant, and my still at home son is an electrical union 1st year soon to be 2d year apprentice.

My Hailey is a 19 month old furball, who likes nothing more than to go to her daycare, bark at anyone that dares walk on her street, and just be a lovebug in general.

Welcome to the forum Cham and Hailey! Oh those Christmas tree ornaments can be quite painful. Glad everything came out OK. Good luck finding a job!

Still crazy after all these years.

Hi and welcome. I'm in MA too. This is a great place to chat with other golden owners. Boy, I'm glad that Hailey is alright. My boy, Biscuit, eats socks, dishcloths, kids underwear, etc. So far he has been able to throw them up or poop them out. I am aware that his terrible habit will probably get him into major trouble someday. Anyway, it's nice to meet you. I'm in Grafton, BTW.

Welcome to you and Hailey. It sounds like you had a tough first year together. Hopefully the tough stuff is behind you now. Look forward to seeing some pictures of her.
