Puppy Love…

English Cream Golden Retriever PuppyFor our first Christmas together, my hubs pretty much knocked it out of the park and surprised me with my lifelong dream present…a puppy!

Our new puppy was a complete surprise to me (I found out Christmas morning!) but had been a top-secret project for my husband since October 2013 when he first found the breeder. He looked high and low for a English Cream Golden Retriever breeder and found a great one just 1 hour from our home. Sidenote: English Creams are not a separate breed, their fur simply falls on the light spectrum of Goldens, making them a great option for warmer climates!

In a nod towards my (very!) Nor-Cal upbringing, we named our little white ball of fluff Modoc. He is everything that a new puppy should be…cuddly, rambunctious, energetic, completely lovable and just a little bit naughty! He loves playing with our two cats (the feeling isn’t completely mutual!) and we love watching him discover the world.

My husband was extra careful to find a breeder that focused on healthy, strong puppies. Goldens can sometimes encounter major joint problems in life, but our little guy has some of the highest rated hips and shoulders around. I can’t wait to share more about Modoc as he grows up, we’re sure enjoying this puppy stage while it lasts!
