Congratulations! I have always admired Flat Coats since I saw one at my son's baseball game. They are a more sleek build than a golden and temperament is a little different too. I did a little research and found out that the Flat Coats are a little more family centered and less socially centered than our Happy to love anyone Golden's....other than that, I couldn't find much else different. I like both names, Seraphin and Phoebe. You have a beautiful little girl there.

Thanks Paula. Seraphin is cool, but the kids were adamant they'd pick a name. Can't argue with that. I named Summer way before we even got her and they were so excited when they thought they'd get a chance. She seems to have taken to her new name too. She's going to be a beautiful girl. Her mom was there and we saw her and she is gorgeous. I saw a pic of her dad and he was very handsome. I'm very lucky, they're both going to be stunning girls.

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are. Unknown

I saw a fc at an AKC show that I went to recently and fell in love with them. They do look much like the golden although they have a leaner and more long legged build, which I really like. She is a real beauty and I love her name! Congrats!

I too like Flat Coats. The obedience trainer at my agility training facility has them. They are nice dogs. Your pup is adorable. Congratulations.

Look at that fat belly

And Summers face, not much difference, till you look head on at them


Summer has however taken to barking at Phoebe. She never barked before, just a couple of times when she saw our neighbours cat or when she was really excited and then she didn't know where it came from. But now she's barking all the time at Phoebe. I suppose to get her attention. Phoebe still hasn't made a sound.
Oh, how cute! You're really making me miss Nellie as a puppy

Thanks all. They've settled really well together and are attached almost all the time.

But boy, can Phoebe fart!! She can clear a room and not even wake up LOL. Kids are enjoying her loads, they break up for summer holidays on Wednesday, so the pups will be bushed from all the playing soon.

Have you got any pics of Nellie as a pup, Nellies mom?
