Hi all! I've been lurking for awhile, but I found myself with so many questions and comments, I had to jump in! Our new boy Finn joined our family two days before Christmas, and one day before the biggest snowfall K.C. had seen in years! Oh yeah, potty training has been fun in all that snow- but we're clear now and Finn is down to one or two accidents a day- usually in the evening during his nutty, crazy-boy time! Finn has two older lab brothers, one nine, one seven, and the older boy "tolerates" him, while the 7 year old likes to play with him UNTIL the puppy teeth get too rough, and then he shuts him down. It's been wonderful to have another Golden in the mix- we lost our ten year old Golden girl, Ruby to liver cancer back in July, and while I love the labs, they are very different from Goldens and as a friend of mine said, I was in need of a Golden intervention! I'm really looking forward to learning a lot from this site and sharing what I'm experiencing; There is SO much good information here!
