Some say he makes it harder for me to get out… I say he makes it a lot nicer to be home. Although I have always had a dog, Hunter is my first Golden and my housekeeping skills have improved dramatically as he retrieves any remote control, shoe or article of clothing not locked up. My fitness level has improved as we go for two long walks in the bush a day. We try to include a dog friend and on the weekend, we visit the local unofficial dog park and meet up with his many new friends for an hour or two romp. I can’t wait to introduce him to cottage life. He makes life a daily adventure and I am totally smitten with my new forever friend. Thank you .
