A magical moment for me is when I got my golden retriever, Summer. There were ten dogs in the litter when we went to go see them. When we walked into the room to go see the puppies I felt like a pig in the mud. We asked the breeder to help us pick out our dog. She picked us out a smaller golden retriever out of the litter. Meanwhile, we decided her name should be Summer. At the time she was too young to take home so we had to wait a few weeks. Those few weeks felt like a few years. When Summer was nine weeks old she was old enough to take home. I thought we were at a comedy show on the way home when I was watching Summer crawl all over my seat. I knew when I got home the training would begin. Getting Summer was one of the most exciting moments of my life.
