Hi, I'm excited to have found this forum as I am a soon-to-be new owner of an 8 week old golden puppy. I met her for the first time this Sunday and she is adorable (I might be a bit biased). I am so excited to get to bring her home. I have not raised a puppy in probably 7 or 8 years - any tips from you "pros" on the forum? I already have a crate for crate training and am looking to buy a puppy book. Any suggestions? Looking forward to many years of sharing stories, pictures and advice.

I've attached a picture of Ruby below.

Thanks!

I have found great advice on many problems and concerns. I love checking the old training threads for tips.
My pup is now almost 9 months old and I we are in Seattle.

Thanks all! After I posted this, I read through a bunch of past threads on puppies and training and found a bunch of great advice. This site is definitely a gold mine! I was raised in Federal Way, WA and now reside in Kent. Nice to see so many PNWer's on here. I get to visit Ruby again this Saturday so I'll post more pics after that visit. I'm sure she will have grown a ton in a week.

Welcome to the forum,
Ruby is just adorable and yes she will have grown by this weekend. These little pups grow so fast, so take lots of pictures. There is a wealth of information in the puppy section and training sections of the forum. Also at the top of the page, you will see a section called products and reviews and there is a good amount of stuff that might interest you.
Glad you have joined us and cant wait to see more pictures of her.

Welcome to the forum! :) I too am glad to see new members from this part of the country. I live in Renton, actually the Fairwood area, so not far at all from you!
Your little Ruby is just so CUTE! I am anxious to see more pictures and hear many stories about your little Sweetheart!:smooch:

Ruby gets to come home Nov 20th - so 2 1/2 long weeks for us to wait. Of course, we are busy getting the house "puppy-proofed" in the meantime :) The breeder is Canyon Meadows Farm and they are located in Tacoma. They came on a recommendation from a friend and seem to have a wonderful farm for the puppies to grow up on. She's already being potty trained which is fantastic! Thanks for everyones replies. I will definitely post pictures as I get them. Here's one more of Ruby Red from last weekend

Hi : ) I am in Seattle and am looking for the right breeder for my Golden puppy, and Canyon Meadows Farm was recommended. I have a friend that just brought one of their puppies home this weekend (she is SO precious!). Would you recommend them based on your experience with Ruby? I really appreciate any insight or advice you might offer! Thank you : )
