Well, since you have had a dog, you probably know most of this. But, here goes. Be sue to keep electrical cords hidden and out of reach. Some dogs just love to chew on them for some reason. Be sure to put sox, underweqr etc right into hamper. that is something else dogs love to "eat, and it seems goldens are among the worst at doing that. Also, anything else that they can chew on that is dangerous.
Be prepared to laugh a lot at the funny antics, to get wet kisses, and to be loved totally by that little fur bundle.
I would also take him to my vet first thing for check and get his file started.
By the way, I am Sandra, we live on the Texas coast and are bossed by 8 1/2 year old kayCee, a full golden, and Honey, a 6 year old adopted golden mix. We got KayCee and her littermate, Hunter, at 8 weeks--he is the one in my avatar. I lost him 4 years ago this pat oct. to an adverse reaction to the 6 month heartowmr preventative that was on the market for aboug 3 years. It was great--for me--having the pups at the same time and since i didn't work, was here with them all the time so they wre a joy. Were alos extremely good pups, maybe because they had each other.
