He contacted the Golden Retriever Club who recommend a breeder in Wexford. We went to visit when the puppies were 5 weeks old and picked out the boy we wanted. 3 weeks later, my boyfriend drove back down to pick him up. We called him 'Ted'.

That was last summer. Ted is celebrating his first birthday in a few weeks. He has grown from a tiny fluffy puppy into a big brute of a dog.
He is an easy going, gentle and easily trainable dog. We did 2 courses up in the DSPCA training him so he's pretty well-behaved now. He is happy to sit with us while watching tv or studying. Luckily my boyfriend is at home a lot so Ted has company a lot of the day. We are lucky to live near Marlay Park and have a large green in our estate so it's easy to walk him.
