Hi, we have been thinking about a puppy for a long time and a neighbour with a beautiful golden retriever has had puppies. Mum has a gorgeous temperament, is petite for a retriever and the dad has a great pedigree. However initially my neighbour said she could keep puppy until after our summer holiday but it turns out we had miscalculated. Puppy will be 8weeks around 17th July, we go on holiday 4th August and keeping the puppy that long is not an option as they had now planned to go on holiday themselves. We have been trying to think of a solution, there are people that could probably puppy sit for a week but she will be with us 2.5 weeks them potentially have 2 more weeks with 2 separate people. I’m fairly sure this would be a bad idea but then others have said it would be fine. I stupidly took children to see the puppies before sorting out if it was possible!
