Hello to you all. I've been lurking on this site for about a month and finally decided to join. Our family just got bigger when we brought Bear home. He is 11 weeks old and our first Golden Retriever. I am completely new to the dog world (having only had cats....) and have been reading like crazy to get as much info as possible. Thanks to all of you for your great suggestions.....I look forward to getting to know you and your fur babies.
