Hey everyone and thank you so very much for reading my thread. I am 14 years old and we just got a 4 month old Golden Retriever from a friend. A few months ago we got a black Labrador from the animal shelter and I felt so nervous on the first day we took it back. If anyone's ever gotten that nervous feeling in your stomach on the first day please tell me how you coped with it. I don't want to let this dog go, but at the same time it is a bit overwhelming. Is this normal for new dog owners? Is this normal for kids? If I get to the point where I can't bear the feeling, should I return the dog? Someone please reply; I am so desperate for your help. Thank you oh so much.
