Hello, I'm Leah and obviously I'm new here, along with my almost 10 month old golden Kaylee. We have a really happy story with how she became a part of our family.

I have always loved/wanted a golden retriever, and never been able to afford a purebred (or find any in shelters, it's nearly impossible at least where I am). So my boyfriend and I had ended up adopting a 3 year old beagle we got attached to, but ended up having aggression issues and attacking our son. Needless to say we couldn't keep him. Naturally we were devastated...so my best friend (who had just gotten herself a golden pup) went and bought us our then 4 month old bundle of golden joy for an Easter gift! She's been the best thing to happen to our family, and the sweetest, snuggliest pal for any girl :) Here are some pics of our baby Kaylee.

Thanks! :) Those two are definitely joined at the hip, and she came to us at exactly the right time for him. He was heart broken at us having to get rid of the beagle, and I think he thought it was his own fault (he would cry and promise not to bother the dog, which was heart breaking because he should be able to play with his own pet without worry) and now he has a fun loving dog who loves to wrestle and then just curl up and snuggle.
