Welcome Reese. You've come to the right place. You didn't mention how old Jayson is. If I were you, I'd be reading everything credible on golden retrievers I could get my hands on. What is Jayson like? How's he behaving? Have you house trained him yet? There is an incredible amount of knowledge here on the forum. How's his sleep/eating routine going? How's he doing with the food he's eating? Lots to think about when you have puppy/dog. I'm glad you want to participate in taking care of Jayson. Is he crate trained? Let us know how he's doing. The folks around here like lots of pictures too. I don't have my puppy yet and realize I also need a new camera, since the one I currently use is the old film type, making it difficult to put pictures on the computer. Good luck Reese.
