They say the best way to deal with the grief of losing a beloved dog is to get another dog as quickly as possible. So...
Meet my new puppy.
He's a four-week old Golden Retriever. Obviously he's way too young to leave his mama yet, but I'll take him home in four or five weeks.
All my life I've chosen large and stubborn dog breeds (Malamute, Pyrenees, Pyr crosses, etc.). This will be the first time I'll have a breed known for its easy training. It will also be the first time I've had a male dog (all our prior males were Don's dogs).
Don will be getting a Yellow Lab puppy in a few weeks as well, so we'll raise and train the dogs together. Right now the house is way, way too quiet without the happy activity of canine companions.
I am, however, clueless what to name him. Any suggestions?
