We used to have a Golden Retriever when our kids were young, and we lived in Fremont across the street from the park. It was ideal, but the dog chewed on our wooden house. LOL Always wanted a dog after that, but can't be responsible for any animal when I need to satisfy my thirst for world travel. However, I may be getting to that point by age where travel may be reduced considerably, and probably limited to domestic. Who knows? My wife probably won't allow it.
