Default Introducing myself

My name is Chris and I just bought a 3 month year-old Golden Retreiver. Her name is Amber. Every one was shocked that I got a dog because up until recently, I was never really a dog person. My brother has a two year-old dog that's part yellow Lab with one or two other unknown breeds. My step-mom has a Papillon that I pretty much hate because of his yapping problem. She and my dad think it's cute, but every one else hates it.
Before I got my pup, I was a reptile person. At one point, I had two Cali. King snakes, two rosy Corn snakes, a green Tree Frog, an Anole, a Grass Lizard, a newt, and a three-foot African Lizard. My step-mom hates snakes and she "forbade" me to get any kind of python. She thinks they're dangerous due to ignorance. She told me I could buy snakes that didn't get past six feet. I ended up trading in all of my repts for a Borneo Red-Blood Python, which gets up to five or six feet and she and my dad threw a fit, so I let them get their way and gave the snake away.
I've had it with reptiles for the moment. In a way, it's a good thing I got rid of them because I bought Amber who I've begun to love. She's friendly, playful, smart, and a pleasure to have. I'm trying to train her as quickly as possible. I do the Petco bath every two weeks and basically treat her like a child.
My goal for pets is to keep up with Golden Retreivers and have a couple of snake giants. My dream is to have a Reticulated Tiger Python and a Green Anaconda and give them their own rooms to roam in.

Hi and welcome to the forum Zen Fox! Glad to see you came over to the Dog Side. Do you have any pictures of your puppy? There are also a lot of other Golden owners on here, so you'll be in good company!

One note though: With a puppy that young, you really shouldn't be bathing it more than once every couple of months. Here's a good thread to read up on:http://www.chazhound.com/forums/show...hlight=bathing

Nice to have you here. My husband just gave away his bald python. He had it many years. Personally, I prefer the warm blooded side. They are so affectionate and snuggly.
