Hi!

I'm Jen and I have a 3 year old Golden named Murphy. Murphy is my first golden and I think I'm hooked!

Murphy is a goof, loves to clown around and is crazy about swimming, squeaky stuffed toys, food and lying on the couch for snuggles. I have arthritis and Murphy always knows when I'm feeling crappy and comes to lie near me/on me:) He also knows when I'm just lazy and will go stand at the door waiting for his walk. I figured out how to post pics and put a couple of cute ones in my reply a couple of posts down!

I look forward to chatting with all of you about all things golden!

Jen

Yes, we got Murphy as a puppy. He was the sweetest fuzzball and huge at 16lbs at just 8 weeks!

We did have some tough times with him as a puppy, after having him for just 3 days he developed intestinal problems and ended up having 2 surgeries for an intusseption (telescoped bowel). We were very lucky because we caught this early and Murphy had a great outcome. Our vet is also Murphy's breeder helped us through the whole thing and since she also performed the surgeries Murphy never developed a fear of the vet...he LOVES the vet!! They all spoil him. He is now a healthy happy 76lb guy who keeps us laughing all the time!

I think I may have figured out how to post pics so here goes

Cheers,

OMG... He's beautiful! Welcome to both of you. I see your guy has the standard Golden Retriever pool! Does anyone NOT have one of those? I'm sure they sell more of those for dogs, than for kids.

Jen, those pictures say it all. Murphy is obviously the type of golden who makes everyone want one! You've done a great job raising him. Welcome to the forum.

Hello and welcome, looks like Murphy is a typical happy golden who likes to have his picture taken while he is flashing that great golden smile!

What a handsome golden! His pool looks familiar... I think they're required items for golden families. :)
