I'd love some input on why one would be apt to prefer/choose one sex over the other.
In our case, this will be the first/only pet (though possibly a car may join our family at some point), and we have two teenage daughters and a 3 year old soon.
So after a lot of consideration and planning, we've decided to get a Golden. We've already found a breeder and the puppies are ready to be taken home in seven weeks. As we were the first to show an interest in the litter, we have been given first pick of the 12 puppies.
