I love golden retrievers. You are so lucky FishFan! If I only had the time and space for a large dog like this, I wouldn't hesistate to get one. Perhaps when I get my own house one day I'll either get a golden retriever, siberian husky, or german shepherd - these are 3 best breeds of dogs ever! Here is a picture of my firend's beautiful german shepherd
EmpPleco - you won't regret getting a dog Dogs are wonderful. I am definitely getting a dog too (only not now, in a few years). I want to get either one: a Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky, or a German Shepherd. I love all 3 breeds beyond words! But if I had to really really choose, I think I'd go with a Siberian Husky.
Me too, sorry about the dog I can imagine how much you miss him. When pets die it's almost like losing a family member! I also have lost a cat not too long ago. She was a sweetheart :'( and will always be missed. I will be getting another kitty in her place soon.
Sorry about the cat, no kitten will ever be exactly the same as her, but of course, pets have to die sometime, like Muffin was blind, and sick for a while, and deserved to pass away ( She was nearly 15 years old! ) so I wasn't surprised when she was put down. I don't have any pics of her on me, but this is sort of what she looked like, except she was completely blonde. She was adorable!
