I have been wanting a Golden Retriever of my own for a LONG time. I grew up with Golden’s and in my opinion, there is no better family dog. The weinas are fine, but they aren’t good family dogs. Oliver is 100% mine and thinks he’s my personal body guard and wouldn’t hesitate biting someone given the chance. And Sadie is just dumber than a box of rocks. She’s cute and sweet, but man, is she dumb.
For Christmas 2013 we got Sampson and we are totally in love. This dog is everything I’ve wanted in a dog. He’s great with the kids, friendly to everyone, good with other dogs, playful sometimes and lazy others – he’s just a good boy. And he’s SUPER laid back compared to his brother, Riki, that my parents got.
Here are a few pictures of Sam during his first month with us. (In the pictures with both pups, Sam is the lighter one and Rik is the darker.)
