We took my mom today to get a new puppy! She wanted a golden retriever. We soo lucked out and a friend had a friend who had a friend (don't you love the bar business) who had pure bred golden retrievers that she was giving away. Just to clarify, pure bread in my family really means nothing. Every dog we've ever had has looked exactly the same. I just call them "Detroit" dogs. If you live here, you know what I mean, they are all black and brown. In pictures of the dogs my family has owned, we never even know which one is which. They're great dogs, and we always would get an older dog from the humane society, cause my dad always told us that somebody else will take the puppies, we needed to save the adults. There are two in my family right now, my mom has Rudy and my sister Heidi has Cali.
