Hi Everyone, we got our Puppy last week, she is now 9 weeks old and she is the cutest. She is the typical mouthy land shark Golden. She loves to play and bite. We have 4 kids who keep her busy and run around our half acre with her. My husband tried to put a harness on her to walk around and she really freaked out, growling and everything, kinda surprised me. So we took it off. Anyway, I took her to the vet today and she had her nails clipped with no problems, just laid there. She has a little pimple on her belly Dr was checking out and she growled at him. He said, oh shes very feisty she has a little attitude have you noticed that? I thought well she loves to play and is so friendly loves everyone.. but didn't like the harness but I didn't think of her as having a bad "attitude" I know shes more assertive and not scared at all of her surroundings. Shes still just a tiny little pup. My 3 year old was grabbing on her and playing with her at the vet and he said oh well look, she doesn't seem to mind that all. He put her on her back and said oh well shes very submissive this is a good indicator, if they freak out or try to get up they tend to be more independent and feisty? she just laid there like whatever. but she did growl at the nurse checking her body out. Now I am curious, is this a puppy thing? I had only 1 Golden that I got little bit older back in the day who was more timid and had a more scaredy cat personality so she definitely had a different personality than this one. I am just curious if shes going to have a mean streak in her? He got me a little worried.
