So my kids talked their mother into letting their friends pure bred and papered Golden Retriever male come over to visit our purebred AKC registered female that is in heat. How long does it take them to make a connection and what are the chances nothing will happen. Our girl is on the small side, he is HUGE! I thought our girl was RED until I saw him. He almost looks like an Irish Setter he is SO VERY RED. Looking at the two of them, they would make some GORGEOUS pups. but.... The thought of puppies scares me. I guess we would keep one of the little males, give the stud family the pic of the litter and then my kids seem to think they'll be able to sell the rest. I'm not happy that my wife gave in to my kids. Any advise would be appreciated.
