Hi just thought id say welcome to the site im pretty new at this also, like you i have a young son, 3 infact!! aged 10. 8. and 3years. we also have millie our 11 month old golden and she is just fantastic with our boys, we couldn't have found a better dog to join our family, they really are the perfect family pet! Goodluck finding a golden and send some photos of your new addition, when he/she arrives. i have posted a couple of photos of millie in the puppy gallery section, ill have to update them to the older dog gallery as shes getting a big girl now, take care.
