    Hi, everyone :D
    I'm Dani, I live in the panhandle of Florida (practically Alabama) and have plans to move to NY in the spring. My fuzzy sidekick is Macleod, a 3.5 year old golden who I adopted from the local shelter when he was 18 months old. Currently training for flyball and hunt tests (we just started attending a hunting retriever club last week) and we've been doing SAR training since January. Aside from that, he's my psychiatric service dog. He's a very multipurpose dog, a jack of all trades.

    Here are a bunch of unflattering pictures of him:

    Yay! We need more retrievers on here because there is a big hole where they should all be. The couple Labs and FCR that we have can take a break now!

    Gorgeous Golden! They're a breed that is really growing on me, mainly because I really want to cuddle with them. Love all the pictures and welcome to the forum!

    Welcome! You know the picture drill, so you fit in already. :D

    In all seriousness, though, he is gorgeous! It's awesome to see another stable rescue SD.

    I was wondering the same thing, since I'm also in the Hudson Valley.

    Long Island, where my girlfriend lives (distance sucks!). She lives in Northport but we'll probably end up in Dix Hills. I'm up there pretty often to visit.

    Welcome! Macleod is a great looking boy, I've got a soft spot for golden retrievers, my Mom had one and she was awesome. Sounds like he's like he's excelling at quite a few things, hope to see you around here. :)

    I didn't know you lived in the Boston area! Carma's ear fluffies are so close by!! :rofl1:

    Hi Dani, nice to meet you here. :)

    Seeing pictures of Macleod, he is a brave and beautiful boy. And it's a noble thing from you to rescue him. Many successes with his training, goldens are great learners!
