Hello From Sugar Land Texas

Hi everyone I am new to this forum and figured I need to introduce myself
My name is Loana(28), I am a wife to Danny(33) for almost 9 years and a mommy of 5 (stay at home mom) and Photographer when I can
3 human boys (Brendan age 6, Ethan age 3 and Dylan age 2)
and 2 fluffy babies
My Golden Holly age 7 and a Cat named Lucky age 9
Holly and me are the only girls of the house anyhow I am hoping to get to know you all and get tips and advice I adopted Holly at age 2 as her owners had a baby and they said she jumped on the baby's bassinet... the only way I can see that happening it's that she wanted to see the baby not to hurt the baby... She has NEVER once growled at my kids and she has been around them since newborns... they have used her as a pillow, walker,toy, she is their nanny and their best friend.... anyhow Ia m very lucky to be her mom!
She is the best dog I could ever asked for and I have had lots of dogs (well my parents) when we were living in Mexico... anyhow here is a couple of pics of my big girl!
Getting ready to take a nap


and showing some love to my lil one

I have a shirt on her now as she has some hot spots I am keeping her from biting.. I changed her food recently this past weekend to be exact to nutra chicken and oatmeal and adding some olive oil a tbs to it for about a week or two and than no more oil.. just to jump start her form her dry skin (I was told)..anyhow she seems to be ok with the food.... not her favorite but she does eat it and I can tell she gets fuller as she is not begging my kids for left overs anymore.
ok so Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome to the forum. Your girl is gorgeous and you have taken some great pictures of her. Look forward to many more.

Have you tried the medicated Gold Bond Powder on those hot spots? Many here on the board swear by the stuff.

Welcome to the Forum!

Your pup (and your son) are real sweethearts!

And your photographic abilities are pretty obvious, too (I'm jealous!)

I think you'll find this place is full of friendly, helpful Goldenophiles Good luck with the new food--hopefully your pup will respond well to it....

Enjoy your stay--and again, welcome aboard!

SJ

Welcome to the forum. That is a gorgeous old girl. I have one right now that is wearing a shirt because of an open wound after surgery. Tonight she is on a soccer team. Yesterday she was promoting World Vision. When I want to embarass her, she wears my cat club T-shirt.

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 forum! What some great pictures, you've really got some good expressions there. My golden Sierra has skin problems and I have added fish oil to her food to help with some of her allergies. I think it has helped some. Looking forward to more of your good photography!

Sierra in my heart.
