Guys, big news.
The Boswells are getting a puppy!! A Golden Retriever to be specific. I’m pretty much a Mountain Dew can that has been shook 4 million times… that’s how excited I am. Sugar high, and carbonation on crack over here.
We’re in the initial stages of breeder research, and are hoping to find one in Alaska. I can’t imagine how expressive it would be to find a puppy in the Lower 48, fly down, pick him up, only to fly home again. Both costly and the poor little guy probably would have a rough ride. It takes anywhere from 12 to +18hrs to get home sometimes.
I’m already in love…
Reasons we want a Golden:
We love big dogs. Little dogs just don’t do it for me. I want a full body cuddle with my dog, and to feel protected.
Golden’s have high energy and if you know me at all, this is kinda mandatory. I could wear out a 6-year-old. Plus then I have a good running buddy!
Trevor and I don’t mind shedding. We have both grown up and owned dogs that shed like it’s their job. Hence why we purchased the Animal Dyson.
The friendly factor. Our dog will obviously be with us for many, many years and will be part of our family. I have never, not once, heard of a family having problems with their Golden and kids. It would be my worst nightmare to have a dog/baby issue.
They are adorable, trainable, smart, and kind dogs. Case and point, they are guide dogs. There, you can’t argue with leading the blind, injured, or needy.
Look at that face! Is just screams “Take me home, I’ll love you and you’ll love me!!”
All this being said, does anybody have any advice on finding a good breeder? Good or bad experience with using a breeder? Puppy stories are welcome!
I can’t wait to have a little furball again. Beemer was so great and I just need a buddy back ASAP! If we find the right breeder we’re hoping for early/late spring!
