So I finally got to pick out my pup today. As some of you know I was so nervous . I was not totally sure if I wanted a male or female - I've always had female Goldens. After alot of research (and I mean alot of researching the topic Male or Female) I sort of came to the conclusion that either sex in a Golden Ret. is just fine. But I did tell the breeder way back when I would take a female. Today when we went to pick HER out, I totally fell for a HIM. After chating a bit with the breeder she told me that a person that wanted a male backed out - so if I wanted a male, it would be fine. There were about 8 - 10 people all picking out pups! It was a bit overwhelming. Once I picked this little guy up I knew - very calm, happy, and extremely good looking. Now I must wait until next Sat. to bring him home.
