    Brought her home!! She's so cute! We were thinking of naming her either Ripley or Callie but they just weren't really fitting. She has a funky shaped head though and we were teasing her about the noggin on her and the name Noodle just kind of stuck.
    They have her anywhere between 11 and 15 weeks old. I'll be taking her to my vet in a couple weeks for her second round of shots and I'll be curious to hear how old my vet thinks she is.
    I took a couple pix of her. Is there a way to post them on here or do I just need to do a new webshots album?

    Working in a clinic I can say this as an outside observer... there are few dogs more deeply BELOVED by their people than an aged Golden Retriever. Something always hits me deep and to the core when it comes to this breed and their loving people. I have never owned one but this alone has taught me they all must be as stellar as they seem.


    SO SO happy your heart is on the mend and a new family member is on the way!

    Thank you. To say Tonka was amazing would not even come close to covering it. Such an incredibly special soul.

    Thank you. I so adored that one. I know I'll love other dogs in my lifetime but I'm not sure any relationship will be able to come even close to the one I had with her.

    Thank you! She has already brought a lot of laughter into the house.

    Funny too that she does a couple of the same silly things that Tonka used to do. Like walk through your legs and stop so you can scratch her butt, and roll around in the grass to scratch her back.

    Default Ugh. I feel like such a bad puppy mommy.

    Puppy is goofy and cute, but occasionally I catch myself looking at her and wishing I had Tonka back instead.....

    it's HARD with a new one........when i lost my heart dog,jane, i was devastated....she was only mid-age, and i was her second owner ,so hadn't even had the benefit of having her all her life........

    i waited quite a while for another dog, and went back to the small terrier breed, as it was soooo different from jane (pit/lab), and i thought it would allow me to NOT compare.........didn't work so well....and eventually , i ended up with 5 dogs, because while i was [I]full of dogs, i was never [/]satisfied......if that makes any sense...

    i love all my dogs dearly, but none have that special something that happened between janie and myself....it sounds stupid, but she was almost like a person .......and i have often wished to have her back.......then i wonder, but if i could do that, and if it meant sacrificing the dogs i have now, could i do it?..........dunno

    Not stupid at all. I *completely* understand.
    Funny too that I had that exact thought the other day--if I could trade 5 years with Noodle for 1 with Tonka, would I do it? Probably a good thing that I can't because I don't know what I would do if truly given that choice....
