Hello, I'm here to try out this forum as the other GR forum I belong to is sort of going defunct (nobody posts anymore!).
My name is Liz, I am a Ph.D. student in world history at Northeastern University. I specialize in global economic and environmental history. I live in Boston with my boyfriend and our 10.5 month old golden retriever, Zoe. She's on the small side, just over 50 pounds, but she should still have a few more pounds to go. She is our greatest source of joy--a combination of goofball and cuddlebug. She lives to meet people and play with other dogs. She is full of energy--much more energy than we had ever suspected, but well, she's made us become more active!
At this point, we have done puppy kindergarten and basic obedience...we may someday continue obedience and try agility, but right now we're a bit too busy and she has too little attention span (is that a bird? a squirrel? a person? maybe they want to pet me? oooh, a rock...ooh a stick...etc.)
I hope this is a great community and I'll get to enjoy hearing about all the other silly goldens here too!

I'll add a few pictures of her growing up:

Yes, and she still does fit! It's more difficult, and she usually has to hang at least one paw over the edge, but it's still her favorite spot--she just likes to watch the people go by.



Glad to hear you guys like pictures...because I LOVE to take them! I have hundreds of pictures of Zoe on my computer, and will post a whole mess of them when I have a chance.

Welcome

Hi and welcome :wavey:,
This is a great forum and I think you will find that the members here are very busy posting at all times of the day and night! I'm from MA too...just outside of Worcester.

Your pup, Zoe, is beautiful! I have a 9 mo old golden pup plus 2 two year old golden boys. I also have 2 labbie girls. I hope to see more pictures of Zoe.

Hi and welcome from Northern BC Canada. It sounds like you busy girl keeps you busy (in a good way) and hopefully brings some balance to your lives - education can take up soooo much time (not to mention money). We live in the frozen north and have owned goldens for 20 years...right now we have a six year old and a four month old from a recent litter...this forum is a great source of information and great people that are always willing to share what they know. Enjoy your time here.

Hello and welcome to you and Zoe! This is really a great forum and I hope you find it as welcoming and useful as I have. Zoe really is a beautiful pup...and I'm raising a city pup as well (I'm in NYC). Good luck on the PhD...I was there once and I know what a long road that is.

Look forward to hearing and seeing much more about Zoe in the future!

Welcome to you and Zoe,
She is a beautiful girl and was a pretty puppy. I Love her window sill picture. It amazes me how they will try to fit in places like that when they are big. Bama used to lay on the lower shelf of my table on the patio and now cant fit. Almost got his head stuck. LOL
You will find lots of people love to share pictures and stories and enjoy hearing them. This is a busy place and one big happy family with room for one more.
