Nice pup...ours is only one week older also a golden- he already uses the dog door to go do his dooties. Our 9 year old choc lab is not to sure of him yet and we just had to put our 8 year old GR to sleep last night(boy that sucks!!-first dog i have ever had to put down). Goldens are great dogs, your family will love em.

My wife and I have had goldens in our families for a long time. We love them. We were part of the golden retiever rescue in Indiana for tenyears. We just moved back to Minnesota Late last year(My wife is from minnesota)

We had three goldens when we moved here and had to put all three to sleep for various reasons. two were a week apart. but all three were put down in a three month time period. So going from three great dogs to none was very stressful for our family.

But the great people at Avalor goldens has been great to us. she let us adopt one of her former show dogs. so we aquired a beautiful 5 year old female. and we recieved this young pup from her also. this pup is actually the granddaughter of the dog that we have now.

The difficult situation is that she thinks he will be a very good show dog, but i want to make him a very good hunting dog. she wants to show him at six months old. and the two styles of training are different. so we cannot teach him to sit until he is done with his showing career. so it will all be a new learning experience for us.

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
