Hello from Ireland

Hi! My name is Lucy, & the smiling little fella in my profile picture is my Hudson! He's a 2 year old English type Golden Retriever!

There isn't much in the way of Golden Retriever fan clubs where I come from, so it's hard to find people to chat to about them. I'm hoping I'll find that here though!

I got Hudson two years ago mainly as a companion for myself. He's my first dog, and honestly, I feel as though no dog I may own in the future will ever match up to him! I got him from a breeder in a little town called Athlone, in the centre of Ireland. It's the same town where my mother was born & where my graandparents were married. In fact, they were married by the Hudson Bay - hence the name! :)

So that's me & Hudson! I'm hoping that the two of us will make many wonderful friends here! I have plenty of photos, videos & stories to share, & I can't wait to see read more about all of you & your wonderful dogs too!

Welcome from across the pond! Hudson is a handsome lad:) You'll find no shortage of people to talk goldens with here, and bragging about your pup through photos is a must.
Welcome, Welcome. I think you have found the hub of golden chatter here at GRF. You have a fine looking pup there and I hope we get to see lots more of him. Please make yourself at home here and post often. We love golden pictures here. :D
Welcome from Georgia,USA ...Lucy and Hudson:wavey:
You have hit the jackpot if your looking for people to share the joys of owning a Golden Retriever with. Your feelings toward Hudson are the same many of us feel towards our best friends.

Glad to have you here and look forward to hearing more about you and your pup.

Welcome. I had a delightful bicycle tour of SW Ireland a few years ago. Beautiful country, and Hudson is a beautiful dog! I know there is at least one other Irish member of GRF.

Welcome to the forum! My family is originally from Ireland. My great-grandparents were born in Cork. I have been to Ireland, and it is just about the most gorgeous place I have ever seen. My mom just connected with her Irish relatives and we hope to go back to Ireland to meet them! I have found this forum to be a great place to get information, laughs, and stories about our beloved friends.

Welcome! Glad you found us, this is a great place! Hudson is a cutie.

We have a relative with a golden named Hudson, they live in up state New York and he is named after the Hudson River. Hudson is a good dog name.

I'm Amber from Idaho and my boy's name is Winchester. He's almost four months old.

I'm so glad you found the GRF! It's an awesome place to come and share, find information, and make new friends. Hudson is very handsome! I can't wait to see more pictures and videos of him.
