Normally I don't do this sort of thing but I was googling a place to find dog packs for my new Golden and came upon this website. Of all the dogs I have had, I have never had a Golden and only got him, Jake, by chance. A friend of mine could not provide for him so, once again, I volunteered to take him without reservations.
I have had Jake for about three weeks. He is nine months old. Just yesterday he got his first shots and will be neutered in two weeks. To date he has chewed my laptop cord, shoes, books, AND a hole in my couch!!! That being said he did have options. I bought him plenty of toys and bones but he has not yet mastered chewing those things.
This month I took all four of my dogs (I had two Dachshunds, and a Chihuahua as well), to Coronado, California for the month on a personal quest for peace and healing. (We live in Phoenix, AZ). Tomorrow will be one week of us being here and we have already lost one of the doxies. She was paralyzed all of sudden due to inherited disk disease and had to be put down. (The last few days have been Hell)! I miss her terribly.
ANYWAY ~ Jake will be my last dog. (Two weeks ago my boxer mix died as well)! I am on a quest to make my experiences with Jake (and my remaining two babies), the best that they can be. Here is a link to my blog for Jake. http://myadventureswithjake.blogspot.com/
I hear that Goldens are the best dogs ever and I could use all the help and advice I can get for this beautiful creature.
Thanks for the opportunity to share.
