Hi. So glad to have found this site. 18 months ago we adopted Sammy, our 5 1/2 year old golden/great pyranees rescue who is lonely. After looking for another adult dog as a friend for him we have decided to welcome a puppy golden retriever into our home. We pick up Buddy, now 11 weeks old, in a couple of days and I've been reading everything I can online about puppy training, safe toys, socialization, etc. I feel like we are expecting a baby....Perhaps that sounds dumb but that's the way it is. I'm looking forward to reading threads and getting advice on this forum.
