About Jake & Oliver

Oliver and I spend nearly 100% of our time together.

I work from home and he lays under my desk nearly all day until 5 pm (and he knows exactly when 5 pm is), when we go play our daily fetch.

Before Oliver, my wife and I had a traumatic experience with adopting a dog, which was going to be my first dog ever.

I was a little scared of dogs after the experience (he had some aggression issues and the vet said he was unsafe), so we set out on a mission to find the most kind, lovable breed out there.

Of course, we settled on golden retrievers, and a few months later we picked up Oliver.

I had a million questions about puppies and golden retrievers as we were raising Oliver, but had trouble finding the answers online, so I started Golden Hearts to share what I learned.

P.S. Fun fact: Oliver and I share the same birthday
