Leaving a wake- of smiles

My golden hit 55 lbs at about a year old and he has stayed around that weight for two years now. I usually buy large collars and have a large car harness for him.

Do you know how big his parents were? Baxter's father is the same size as he is and his mother was only slightly larger, so I don't anticipate him getting any bigger. If you know the parents were huge, you might want to go a size up.

Hi. I'm Kacey. In my prime I was about sixty five or so. Now I'm old and loosing weight, but that's okay. Your puppy should be fantastic. Love, Kacey.

That would be the same for Woody. He was 100+ lbs.
Genes maybe? Woody is a pure-bred Golden. It could just be an odd occurrence.


Aint I cute?

My male Golden is 75lbs, a big boy. We had the XL crate for the first couple months we had him, and it suit him well.
