Hi, I realized I haven't posted any pics of my boy.

after a failed adoption from the SPCA of a golden chow X. (extreamly dog agressive, and a trainer who specialized in dog agression couldn't make any progress with her) we started looking for a purbred golden. We lucked out and found one which was born on the 8th of Oct ands we picked up on the 10th of december.

So here he is when we picked him up





and these ones were taken yesterday

Thanks, well tuesday he was 22.7lb. the vet felt he could have been 1 or 2 lbs heavers so I increased his food a bit. so I don't know how much they should weigh at the 13.5 week mark but I think he is a pretty big bonned boy.

If you dont mind us knowing, whom was his breeder? His bone thickness is incredible. Plus he's ****** cute. I think in a year or so he needs a lil sister names Kahlua.

the breeder is Chris McBride of Carmegold kennels.

Kona's mother was "Carmegold's the amyrlin seat", and the dad was
"Allsgold play it again"

ya, it will be a year or two befor I am willing to get a puppy again haha.. its a good thing I am semi retired right now, I have the time for this stage.. but ya we kinda did the whole Hawaiian theam for his regestered name also. he is "Carmegold keilana makana kona"

Oh boy...been there!! We didn't realize that the difficulty of raising a puppy increases exponentially with our age:doh:. Didn't think that we were gonna survive "puppy hell"!!! It does seem to start to get easier after 16-20 weeks.

Before we got Gracie we had talked a lot about having 2 goldens this time around. That discussion abruptly ended when Gracie came home to us in March:p:. We did find the courage to take the plunge in December and brought home our second girl, Ruby. Ruby is 18 months old, so we don't have to revisit the puppy days....and we have found that life with two is wonderful.

Annyhow, congrats on getting Kona and enjoy the puppy days....they don't last long.
