Golden Retriever Puppy Update

I wrote a post (here) a couple weeks ago about my brother picking out a new puppy for his family. Well I am so pleased with how well it has turned out. I believe in the principles that I have taught when it comes to picking out a puppy but it is always very rewarding to see the results.

I am always so excited to hear how things have been going and try to get over and visit as often as I can. Things have been going so great. The puppy has fit in so beautifully to her new home. The most fulfilling part has been seeing the relationship between the puppy and my brothers wife. She was not what we call “a dog person”. She had many unpleasant experiences with dogs growing up and never thought she would have one. As her kids grew older and some expressed their desire to have a dog she finally gave in.

My brother has always been a dog lover and has always had big dogs. With the eight kids (thats right, eight children) finding a breed that would be able to fit in with everyone and be hardy enough to take the sufficating attention small ones love to give.

There are not a large number of breeds that would have fit in to this household, but having all the background and doing our homework we came up with the perfect fit. She is proving it every day and I am excited for my next update.

Remember that the commitment to a new puppy is huge. You are talking about the next 10 to 15 years. Do your homework, dont make the choice based off the cute wrinkly face. Think it through, match up the breeds the meet your requirements and than go find some reputable breeders. Go visit lots of dogs and lots of puppies. Of course it is difficult to walk away but you will eventually find the one that is perfect for you and your situation.

Good Luck!
