  1. Should I contact the breeder to confirm a pregnancy?

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I am very anxious to get my puppy! Unfortunately he/she won't be ready to come home until mid-December. At the beginning of August, I contacted a breeder (I got a puppy from her three years ago and he is the goodest boy!) inquiring about future litters. After some back and forth, I put down a...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    This X-ray was take between 45-53 days. I think there’s 5 but have a hunch there’s 6. I could be wrong but has there ever been an X-ray miscount before? Regardless, I’m hoping they all come out healthy ❣️
  3. Anyone ultrasound pregnancy? How accurate was the head count?

    I am curious for others who have ultrasounded and gotten a "head count". How accurate did your head count wind up being? Our vet says 8+. Time will tell!
  4. Xray and Puppy Count issue?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Long story short, My 3 year old Golden is pregnant due to an accidental mating. She is currently 51 days pregnant and on Day 48 we took her into the vet's office for her checkup/Xray. We were assuming the worst, that we would have a big litter due to the small stature of my neighbors Scottie...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hello all! I have a simple question, it seems I've read conflicting answers. My girl has reached 63rd day in her pregnancy as of today! But... 63 days from what? My vet explained we count gestation from the date of ovulation. (This is how we have arrived at day 63 for today.) However, I keep...

  7. Pregnancy

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    We have a gorgeous two year old and we are on our first pregnancy (all my effort). Huxley is not bad, but periodically misbehaved, e.g. he eats sunglasses, remote controls, runs off, etc. It's not a routine thing, I think he has some 'wild' in him. I am concerned how he will make the...
  8. Adoption After Pregnancy

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    We're planning on getting a Golden Retriever that we absolutely love. She's well mannered and has basic training. What we aren't sure about is her coat and nipples. She was from a breeder and has been with the foster home for a month or so. Being from a breeder she's had a litter, no details on...
