I'm Nikki and found this website while searching for golden retriever products on the web. I'm 21 and come from Illinois and I'm absolutely obsessed with goldens. My first childhood dog was a golden, Cody, and he passed away last year. Now, I have a sheepdog mix named Buddy, and a golden I rescued named Rocky. I've uploaded some pictures to my albums, so feel free to take a look Rocky is definitely a unique golden with special needs, suffering from severe anxiety and epilepsy. I'm hoping I can find some ways to help him cope with his problems on this forum. I meet many goldens every day while working at a pets hotel/doggie day camp and at a veterinary clinic. Both of my retrievers have loved tennis balls and a majority of my time is spent picking up green fuzz from the carpet, so that's where my username comes from : I look forward to meeting you all and your goldens!
