We picked up our new golden retriever puppy 3 weeks ago. He was born on August 15th, the day before our golden retriever Copper died. We are trying to get him house trained but it takes a bit of time. We bought him a big kennel to keep him contained at night so he doesn't eat everything in the house. He will chew on anything he can get a hold of. Everything is new to him. He seems to be like our old dog Cooper in a lot of ways but still different. We love his spirit.
