    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We got Winston at 8 weeks and he was only 4.7 lbs....he is a leaner, darker golden but he was still much smaller than average. He is now exactly 7 months, and only 40 lbs. His father was 65 lbs, and his mother was 55, so I knew he would be on the smaller side, but I didn't think he'd be this...
