I have a Golden Retriever named Gracie. She turns 2 in about 3 weeks. She's very friendly, energetic, and playful. She's a bit timid around strangers, but warms up to them quickly. It takes her longer to warm up to other dogs than people. She is never aggressive, though. Sometimes, it's difficult for her to contain her enthusiasm whenever she's around people or dogs, because she's just so friendly. She's very smart and learns things quickly. I love her so much!
