My husband has the biggest golden retriever personality.

“Some people wondered why we had a camera watching us, but people with super active puppies who like to bite everything figured it out. We originally got it so we could see what Rudy is doing while we’re not at home, plus the fact that all our furniture is white, so we have to keep an eye on him.”
