I'm sorry to hear about your girlfriend's's best friend. We lost one of our goldens on New Years Eve that we got from Golden Rescue 9 yrs ago. We got another golden from Golden Rescue 3 weeks ago are very happy with him. Check to see if there is a Golden Rescue organization in your area. We have been very pleased with them locally and they interviewed us and checked references before they would let us adopt one of the rescued dogs. They usually have dogs from 6 wks to 10 yrs of age available.

Good luck.

Check the Sunday paper pets section. Try to buy one from an AKC breeder. I would stay away from pet shops. I'm sure you will find some in the Sunday paper. Good luck!



Hey how is the Eye ball?

I had to put our Golden down this past August. 3 1/2 years old and had bone cancer. Our three girls really loved that dog, it was a pretty tough time .

We wanted to replace him as soon as possible and found a breeder that raises show dogs and was able to get a new Golden around October.

I'd check with some local vets for some area breeders. They can usually give some pretty good insite into the various breeders.

Had to put my best Buddy Rudy down last month. That was REALLY hard to do but was the right thing at the time. He was a great companion allways at my side. Had heart attack only 6yrs old. 110lb red Doberman extremely smart and agile dog.

We live 1 hr. outside of philly, Malvern to be exact. Just this morning we were at Frazer Zoo pet store and they had 6 Golden pups for sale. Good Luck.

We have a 13 yr.old Golden, Taz, and a 3 year old Golden, Nash in my opinion they are the best dog!!!!
