I (Maci) was my mom's first golden after a husky and several Tervs and Shih Tzus. She wanted something that could be off leash and good at dog sports. LOL she got me! I came from a registered breeder but I went to my new home at only 6 weeks. Mom says never again. I am a bit uncertain, do not really play with other dogs (do not really know how) and I am very hyper. Guess I was a big headache in my teenage years!
I tried agility...but I have bad knees so we quit. It was fun except for that see-saw thing! I love rally though and I have a novice title in CKC and novice and advanced in CARO. Trying for CKC advance soon...I just need to remember I can not run around and visit everyone while off the leash...that is why my nickname is Spaci Maci!
When I was 2 1/2, my mom brought home Harley. I was not impressed...I mean the first 2 weeks I would run if he even accidently touched me. But I came around, he is a very cute golden. We are best friends as he knows when to bug me and knows that all bones are mine.
Harley gets to do more running around an ring than me but he has to endure a long bath and grooming beforehand...not for this non-princess! He has his championship now and is starting in rally. He is always cuddled with Mom but that is okay cause I get Dad and his human treats (do not tell Mom!)
Now Mom has a full time job (always says she needs another because we are so expensive- need to tell her if she ate turkey necks too we can buy in bulk and it would be cheaper :)) and also is a director with the AB golden club - membership and rescue. She gets upset and mad sometimes with rescue but also has lots of times when she is all excited.
That is us...forward and onwards!
