I am picking up my first golden in mid July and I am so excited! It is a girl and my oldesr daughter has named her Buffy after Buffy the vampire slayer. This isn't our first dog but I am trying to get as much information I can about the breed. I have known relatives and friends with golden's and they were the best dog. I have always wanted one and I figured I was old enough to have one. Thank youu for having for this forum so I can get educated!
