Awwh Stephh. <33 I know EXACTLY how you feel. My parents purchased a golden retriever, Lady, when I was one year old. Like you. She died 2 years ago at the age of 12. I miss her soo much. She was bred for obedience and man, that dog was definitely the perfect dog. She wouldn't do anything wrong. I love her and I miss her SO much. No dog can EVER replace her. I love Ginger with all my heart, but she's the naughtiest little sucker. Lady was perfect. And such a lady.
Hang in there. <33
