Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself - I'm Tonya and I live in a suburb of Indianapolis with my DH and two kids (daughter, 11 and son, 8).

We had a wonderful, loving golden retriever named Sam who died almost 2 years ago, he was 13. We missed him terribly, but did enjoy our pet freedom for a while. We now find the house awfully lonely, so we gave the kids a new puppy for Christmas.

The little guy was born on Dec. 27th and we'll get to pick him up on Feb 14th (at 7 weeks old)!! I think we are planning to name him Captain Jack Sparrow and call him Jack.

So, just wanted to say hello and let everyone know how helpful this forum is.

Not sure if the picture will work, but here goes (he's the puppy standing)

We are getting VERY excited and impatient! DH and I have known since October, so it seems like forever!

We are HUGE Disney fans, so Sam's AKC name was "Simba of North Oxford" (we lived on Oxford Street at the time), so we wanted another Disney name for this little guy, and Jack Sparrow is a favorite!

Here's another pic (still the puppy looking at the camera):

I constantly check emails to see if the breeder has sent more photos - right now we are getting about 2 a week.

Does anyone have any experience with breeders in southern Indiana? We are getting Jack from Drewana's Goldens in Oldenburg, IN. (www.majork9.com) and this is much more than we paid for Sam, so I was just curious.

Thanks!

Welcome to you and Little Jack Sparrow,
He is just so cute and I cant wait to see the pictures of him as he grows up. These last weeks are going to go so slow especially to your kids.

Welcome to GRF. Please make yourself at home here. Congratulations on the soon to be new puppy. He is as cute as they come. Be sure to have a camera ready for his homecoming.

DH is a photographer (sometimes professionally), so we'll have a TON of pictures! He is still smush-faced, so I can't wait to see what he will look like in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the wonderful welcome!
