I just wanted to let you know how much we love Molly. We couldn't
ask for a better companion. She is so beautiful, so smart, and so easy to have around.
One day when she was about 4 months
old, I went out to pick up my son and put Molly in her crate before I left. When I got back she barked to let me know that
it was time to let her out, and to my surprise I noticed that the crate door was unlatched. I had forgotten to close the door
when I put her in! She could have left the crate at any time while I was gone, but she waited for me to release her instead!
She loves to chew on
plastic bottles. We keep our recycling in a small plastic can on the kitchen floor. Molly looks inside the can and sometimes
cries at the bottles, but she has never once stolen a bottle from the can! She is just such a good girl.
We lost our older lab, Sandy, in
early June. Up until then Molly was very confused about where to go potty, because Sandy was having accidents all over the
house due to her incontinence problems. Molly had just one more accident after Sandy passed away, and I managed to catch her
in the middle of it and put her outside. When she came back inside, she laid down and seemed to be deep in thought about what
just happened. After that moment there has been no need for the crate anymore, especially because she is so well behaved,
so we folded it up for good last month!
She is the kind of dog that is so laid back that you can just snuggle up to her and kiss
her, and she just lays there and kisses back. Just like you promised, she hardly sheds- she is allowed on all of the furniture
and the beds, and I really never notice any hair- although I'm sure there is some there. We went through puppy training with
her and she passed the course, but since she is so good, I don't think there's a need to continue to intermediate training.
She is also a great watch dog- she alerts us immediately as soon as anyone steps foot near the house.
While I was walking Molly in the
park, someone came up to me and told me that he noticed how she was focusing on and reacting to the birds and animals, and
he wanted to let me know that she would make a great hunting dog. None of us have any interest in hunting, but considering
how talented she is at catching birds in our back yard, we think that the man at the park is probably right.
I was the one who wasn't sure about getting another puppy while we
had Sandy in palliative care, but I'm thrilled that my husband and son insisted. She was so good with Sandy, and even as a
puppy she never jumped or nipped at her. She seemed to understand that Sandy found joy and peace in watching her play. They
enjoyed being around eachother, and sometimes Sandy would even use Molly as a pillow.
Molly makes my day every day. She
is my constant companion, especially since I'm home all day. It's so hard to believe that she is still just a puppy, because
we don't have to supervise her anymore. To be honest, we had to keep Sandy crated at times all the way up until age 10 because
we could never trust her around food or trash cans. Molly is a very pleasant surprise for us.
I've attached a recent photo of
her in the back yard. Thanks so much again for our best friend.
We picked up Charlie on Sunday, July 29th, when he was about 16 weeks old. It
was so hard to pick one of the four brothers as they were all so sweet, calm, and beautiful. We did manage to pick
one, though I think any one of the four would have been equally as wonderful as our Charlie.
He clearly is looking to please us. He has taken to the leash very well and has been sleeping
through the night in his crate without complaint since day one. He learned his name within 24 hours and knows to potty
outside! We have had a few Goldens in the past and have never had such a good experience so early on! He even gets along nicely
with our cat.
Cynazar really loves their dogs and were
very friendly throughout the whole process. They know so much about their dogs and they send you home with reading materials
that have some very valuable information in it... info that we never knew despite having had several dogs over the years.
We are so glad to have Charlie as part of our family!
UPDATE: Hi Jenne! Here is a cute picture of Charlie
to go with our testimonial on the website. He is such a love! Thank you for giving me the dog of my dreams!
