  1. Juvenile Pyoderma(?) Ghost 15wk Pup

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    I’m new to this and I know there are other threads but I didn’t want this to get buried. I didn’t see a >1 year pup health section- sorry if I missed it.

  6. Learned so much about GRs in the last 12 weeks!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Well, the only other time I posted was to introduce myself and Owen. He is now almost 20 weeks, what a whirlwind raising a puppy is! He is still an "old soul," he loves to sleep and has yet to chew something other than his toys. I'm even debating whether I should sign him up for basic training...
