I want to officially introduce myself and my puppy - Gabe the Babe.
I've been bouncing around the forums like a first trip to a library - so many books, so little time.
Nice to see some other SC people too.
I too am a Golden Retriever lover and obsessed puppy mom. Most people that know me tell me that when they die they want to come back as one of my dogs. I think that's the norm with Golden Mommies, we love them like crazy.
Last March I lost my beloved Gus. Only nine. In fact we were out of town due to the death of my mother. A double whammy, ending up in the emergency vet clinic in Richmond. The cardiologist on duty doing a procedure and telling me the word 'hermangioscaroma'. "I was lucky he was still alive". God gave me 19 extra days. 19 days to say goodbye. Even then, I wanted 20. That's a long story for another day...I'm still not going to the 'heart breaking' page - can't handle it even yet.
The good news is....enter Mr. Green a.k.a. Heaven Sent Gabriel. My Christmas morning little angel puppy. White as the heavens and just as blessed. We just call him Gabe....Gabe the Babe. A house is not a home without a Golden in it.
Well, thanks for the updates and information. I look forward to your advice, guidance and knowledge to take us on this journey of puppyhood.

Have a great day. I'm gong to try and attach some early photos now....
