What a great resource you have here! I run a car enthusiast forum, so its quite refreshing to see a forum dedicated to an animal I love! My lady and I own a Golden named Prince.

Got him from her cousins who decided after many Goldens (many in the past, currently one old one young) that they were ready to breed. He was born Jul 1 of 07 from a Champion line, and we've been feverishly working on training him ourselves (my cousins have owned many goldens, so we thought we'd train him ourselves).
So far, we've done all his shots and everything (we want to make sure to have the best home for him). He is neutered and enjoying life.
He'll have a heck of a time this summer with his 8 brothers and sisters (and mom and grandma too)

Things have gone GREAT so far in terms of obedience training, and he knows some tricks too :) I've managed to teach him to Dig (well, he's going to learn himself sometime anyway), Bear Sit, Shake, Sit, Stay, Lay Down, etc. I think we're doing an OK job for now :) Here's a few pics of him:

Anyway, I didn't want to go too overboard with the pics... so thats it :) We've nicknamed him "legs" (the cousins and us). He's more agile than any other of their dogs (and was the lightest in weight of the bunch)

Welcome!!! :wave:


I'd love to see a pic of him in "bear sit".... I'm imagining that he sits on his butt, with his arms up...is that right??

What a cutie. And he looks like a smart one. He is so focused and intent in all of the pictures.

howdy and wlecoje from the Texas coast. that is an extremely handsome young many you have there. And i agree with whoever said "I love that 2ed picture of him' where he is all wet. i just want to take hold of his little face on either side and cover that beautiful face with kisses. he is adorable.

We are manipulated by our golden girl, KayCee who will be 9 in Aug. and our adopted goldehn mix girl, Honey, who turned 6 last Dec. The dog in my avatar is hunter, littermate to kayCee. Lost him 4 1/2 years ago to adverse rection to heartworm preventative injction , proheart6--pulled from the market 10 months after his death. And we lost our old "red man' golden at age 12 years 3 months last May. Godlens are a special breed and once you own one, you just can't be without one.

My girls must be smarter than you boy--they learned to dig without me teaching them Ha ha ha

Hello and welcome,
Prince is a cutie and sounds really smart also. He just cracks me up in the second picture and love the one of him on the picnic table.

Go Blue. Actually I grew up near you and just spent a week or so with my family who still live mostly in SW Michigan. My mom and sisters all still live in the Plainwell area. Sister is actually going to law school in GR. More friends and family in South Haven and Grand Haven area as well.
