I grew up on a small farm with my parents, two brothers, and one sister. My brother Christopher and I always had the strongest love for the animals. We would always be out in the barn with our rabbits, ducks, chickens, pigeons, goats, and cows. My brother and I had everything. And then my mom had her dogs. We had golden retrievers as far back as I can remember. They are the sweetest family dogs anyone could ever ask for. Our dogs were never kennel dogs, and were always a big part of our family. My mom had to choose a breed that would do well in a family because she had 4 small children of her own, and was always watching everyone else's kids as well!
