Any dog lovers?
Hey y'all, just thought I'd throw out this poll since I am stuck on which I'd rather get. Here's the background. I've grown up with dogs all my life, but they have all been labs or lab mixes. Right now, I live in an apartment but am moving into a house in July and am wanting a dog of my own again since my amazing dog Aspen died the year before I moved. Right now, my choices are either a golden retriever or border collie. Im going to end up adopting one or the other. As for me, I work nights full time so I'm always home during the day and workout quite a bit so exercise isn't an issue

You bet I'm a dog lover. My family had a female golden, Abby, for 16 terrific years. Thought we would take a break, but got another golden, a male named Tucker, shortly thereafter. He's now 5 years old. Golden retrievers are great family dogs, good-tempered, smart, excellent with kids, and can be very protective when needed. Some have a tendency for hip joint problems, though. Something to be aware of.

As a kid, we also had a border collie, and they are great also. I think they are usually smaller than goldens and labs, and perhaps a bit more sturdy as they age. Like my goldens, our border collie had a great temperament and was an all-around wonderful dog.

You can't go wrong with either breed, in my opinion. Good luck!

It all taste the same with enough soy sauce!:D LOL!

We have a 2 1/2 yr old Golden, they are very hyper for the first 2 yrs and love to play with everything, balls, plastic bottles, they just love attention. I have mine obeying pretty well for me. Great dogs!;)

My Golden retriever was the best dog I ever had. I miss him a lot. Here is my newest hunting dog.
