Quincey made us fall in love with the Golden Retriever breed. Everything from their demeanor, obedience, and that floppy tongue smile – it’s no wonder why they are such a popular dog! After having Quincey for about 6 months, Brad and I already wanted another one to join the family! We both agreed that it was the perfect time in our lives to get a puppy.
Shopping for puppies is quite possibly the best thing ever. It’s hard though at the same time, you want to take them all home with you!! We searched through azcentral’s website for local breeders that were selling puppies. Our first stop just didn’t feel right. Don’t get me wrong, the puppies were adorable – but we just didn’t have “that feeling”. Our second stop I had called before, and the women I spoke to was really sweet, and asked me several questions to make sure we were the right fit for her puppies as well. She even had one in mind that she thought would be perfect for our personality. We drove at least an hour to far east Queen Creek and arrived to a home with 6 adorable puppies in a baby play pen. A couple were barking, a couple were jumping up trying to get out, but there was one sweet gentle puppy sitting and looking up at me with big brown eyes. It was love at first sight! Coincidentally, it was the same puppy the breeder was going to suggest for us. It was meant to be 🙂
We bought her on the spot, and made the long drive back. I was jealous because I had to drive and Brad got to hold her. Here is her first photo from that car ride, sitting on Brad’s lap.
We named her Roxy – Quincey got a new sister and friend for life!
