    Possible 1st dog

    Post by Lorahand on Thu Nov 20, 2008 10:13 pm

    I just go to see this dog today http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=11723529&mtf=1 and am deciding on whether or not to adopt it. So give me some thoughts/opinions... they are going to wait till after my busy holiday for me to make a decision... have to have a decision by a week from tomorrow

    If she is Cocker Spaniel mix she may have ear problems. One of my older dogs has to have her ears cleaned at least once a week, or else they really irritate her. Other than that there is nothing but good things to be said about Golden Retrievers and Cocker Spaniels (other than the ear problems of course). Golden Retrievers make some of the best companion dogs, and they are very patient and easy going. She will be a wonderful companion...and a cute one! I love you

    Great looking pup! Be aware that Golden Retreivers can have hip problems (dysplasia) and any "floppy" eared dog can be prone to ear problems. They don't get as much air to keep bacteria at bay to the inside of their ear. However I have a Chocolate Lab and a Vizsla (both big floppy ears) and have never had a problem. Especially as a pup, when you bathe the baby put ear plugs in to keep water from going down into inner ear (plugs preferrable as cotton does saturate and then the water just drips into ear anyway).

    Anyway....congrats on the impending addition to your family. When you get the puppy just find whatever you love most and give it to her/him to chew up, cause it'll happen anyway. lol!

    Ain't that the truth.

    Have fun with your puppy. They are a handful but oh so fun.
