Isn’t he the cutest thing?! It literally pains my heart just to look at him hah! I love him!! I don’t have many photos because every time I see him I am filming because I want to make a cute video of him and his siblings! Everyone says the puppy stage flies by so I want to document it and be able to show our kids what he looked like when he was a pup! And videos are just so much better for doing that! Oh and for those who asked, he is a Golden Retriever!!

Anyways, I was on Twitter today and tweeted about how I have NEVER EVER EVER been able to do a cartwheel! Or any form of gymnastics! Literally you guys, I can’t even do a handstand!! Haha its so embarrassing and I grew up being SO mortified about it, I would fake sick anytime we had to do tumbling in P.E. or anytime girls started doing gymnastics on the field at recess I would make up some lame excuse why I needed to go inside or to the swings or bathroom or whatever. I actually just told my husband this for the first time a couple weeks ago and he was flabbergasted. I then started telling him how not only did I not know how to do a mere cartwheel, I tried out for cheer!!!! Haha what was I thinking you guys?!?! I literally acted out for David how I tried out and showed him how they announced it was my tumbling portion (there were 3 things we had to do, one was do a tumbling routine thing) and instead of doing it I just clapped my hands and said “GO STAPLEY!!!!”

I can’t stop laughing when I think about it! Needless to say, I never made it 🙂 haha but I was so happy to see some of your replies saying you never have been able to either! I seriously thought I was the only one. Maybe I should make an emotional support group for us girls who can’t cartwheel. (jk) But I think David is going to try to teach me this Summer… maybe I will film it just so you can all have a good laugh 🙂

For the first couple Daily Fav’s I asked girls beforehand because I didn’t know how many #bfbdailyfav ‘s we would get!

  1. Okay I’ve been trying to find a golden retriever darker red like him and I was trying to find if you ever said where you got him and don’t see anything! Can you share what breeder he is from?? Such a cutie.

    1. Aw thats so sweet of you! I am glad you think he is cute as I do!!! 🙂 Sending my love!!! xo

  2. ahh!! he is adorable! so happy for you!!! 🙂 my hubby and I are also getting a puppy here in the next few days!!
    oh the excitement!!!

    1. No way you are?! Seriously isnt it the most exciting thing ever!! I swear I am acting like I am having a baby haha

  3. Cute puppy! Next time please consider adopting a puppy instead of buying one- so many dogs and puppies are put to sleep in shelters everyday, it breaks my heart 🙁 Rescues are available also for almost every breed that someone could be looking for. And please spread the word to adopt- I feel like many people don’t realize the huge pet overpopulation problem in this country (3-4 million dogs and cats are put to sleep in shelters every year). You can read more about it here: http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/adopt/tips/top_reasons_adopt.html

    1. Totally^, and we actually looked into it. Unfortunately for us, but FORTUNATELY for all little golden puppies out there in the world, the shelters aren’t exactly packed with golden puppies. and we wanted both a golden, and the joy and experience of puppyhood. otherwise it’s a great option!

  4. I could never cartwheel either. I think it has something to do with height. I’m also 5’10”, and it was like too much weight for my arms to support or something 🙂 Don’t worry, you’re not alone out there!

    1. Haha I always thought that too! I just always felt like my wrists were going to break!! Glad I am not the only one!

  5. I’m one of those who couldn’t & still can’t do a cartwheel, YET I became a flying trapeze artist and circus instructor despite still not being able to even do a silly handstand!

    The video just goes to show, even if you can’t do a handstand or a cartwheel, if even ME can do trapeze, anyone can 🙂

    1. No way!? That is so awesome! Good for you! I am going to check out that video when I get home from work I am excited!! xo

  6. Oh my goodness!! He is PRECIOUS! I’m so glad you are documenting everything! Soak up this time while he is still little and squishy!!

    1. Ah yes the little and squishy stage is the best!! Definitely documenting as much as I can! xo

  7. Oh my gosh he is so precious!! I think making video’s of him growing up is a great idea!! I plan on doing the same when I end up getting a puppy one day..
    Have a great day Amber!

    xox,
    Sincerely Miss Ash

    1. Thanks!! we think so 🙂 I hope you have a great day too! Your comments always brighten my day! xo

  8. Super cute! I <3 dogs and you can't go wrong with a golden! Looking forward to seeing him grow 🙂 thanks for sharing the daily fav by the way, a great way of finding new blogs!

    1. I am glad you like the Daily Fav!!! And thanks so much!! I think he is pretty cute too! You’re so sweet!

  9. Your puppy is sooo cute. I have such a soft spot for doggies. I have two myself.

    I was one of the girls who can’t cartwheel either! I was so jealous and left out, when the girls would get together in recess. I even tried learning… nope, still isn’t happening.

    1. Thank you!! Aw you do? So fun! We want to get another eventually! You cant do a cartwheel either?! We are twins! And yeah it ain’t happening haha I just can’t !

      1. Where did you get this adorable golden? is he a the actual golden color or the red? we are in search for a dark golden retriever!

        1. We got him back in Utah when we lived there 🙂 And yes, he is definitely more on the red side of Goldens! They are amazing dogs! Good luck!! xo
