Puppy Update Five Weeks

Five week old Golden Retriever
One of the 5 week old puppies being socialized during a visit with my breeder’s mother.

My puppy is five weeks old and I will finally meet her on Valentine’s Day. What a perfect day to begin a life long relationship.

Now the big question…how do you select a new family member from a group of five adorable girls? Most of my dogs have been adopted from a shelter. This time, I’m selecting one from a litter of gorgeous puppies. Thank goodness I have a quality breeder to help us make the match. My puppy won’t be ready to come home for another month or so, but next weekend we’ll be formally introduced and I will be looking into her eyes, breathing in that fantastic puppy breath.

The trainer is meeting with me in the next couple of weeks to talk about the process of integrating her into the family and training her to be a therapy dog. This puppy comes from a long line where many of the dogs have become therapy dogs. She and I will be in training for the next year or two. I’m really looking forward to having a strong bond with her, just like I have with her big sister, Olive.

Here were the puppies at week two. It’s amazing how fast they grow.
