Darwin Oct 2014It is amazing how much can change in one year.

The photo on the left is when we picked him up from PADS back in November 2013 and the photo on the right is our big beautiful boy today. Darwin is our first Golden Retriever and training him has been a unique experience as he is less food motivated than previous dogs we have raised.

He is so very loving and affectionate. He is maturing into a wonderful dog and we will continue to work on his skills to prepare him for his assessment.
