    Our family is considering buying a puppy from Golden Asset Kennels, but we have one big problem… They have both Golden Retriever puppies and Basset Hound puppies, and we don’t know which one to choose!

    My son and I would prefer a Golden, but my husband and our daughter would prefer a Basset Hound. Does anyone here own a Golden Retriever? What can you say to help me convince the whole family that a Golden is the best dog a family could wish for?

    I have nothing against Basset Hounds though, they are incredibly cute! I just really prefer Golden Retrievers. What about you?

    Why don’t you get a puppy from each breed? You would double the cuteness, and everyone would be satisfied!

    We briefly considered it, but no, we don’t have enough space for two puppies… Well, we would have enough space for two puppies, but that’s the thing! Puppies don’t stay puppies forever!

    So we really need to make a choice, and it’s difficult…

    Getting a dog is always such an exciting adventure! Personally I’ve had Golden Retrievers my whole life, they are my absolute favourite breed of dog, so I am more than a little bit biased when I tell you they are the greatest dogs in the world! They are charming and very smart, and they just give so much love to anyone they meet.

    I would have a hard time making a choice as well… especially as puppies, both breeds are just so adorable!

    Maybe you could just flip a coin to decide? Maybe half of your family will be disappointed, but it won’t last long… I mean, even if you want a Golden, could you possibly be disappointed by a cute little sad-eyed Basset Hound puppy? And if they want a Basset, they will have no choice but to fall in love with an adorable and friendly little Golden pup!

    Everyone will win no matter what you choose, so you might as well stop arguing and flip a coin! 😉

    Hey, you’re right about this… Of course, no matter which dog we choose in the end, I know the whole family will be happy and will fall in love with that puppy!

    I can’t resist the sad eyes of a Basset Hound. I never had a dog because my partner is allergic, and my parents didn’t like dogs so I never had one as a kid either… But if I could get one I would definitely consider a Basset, they look so sweet!

    Hey I know all about Golden Asset Kennels, my friend got a Golden Retriever pup from them a few years ago and she wanted me to come along and help her make her choice…

    So we booked an appointment to visit the kennel and let me tell you, I have never seen so many cute, happy puppies in my life! No matter which breed you choose, I just know you can’t go wrong with them, each of their pup comes with a guarantee and they have been checked by a veterinarian.

    I love doggies! I have read many great things about Golden Retrievers, and I think they sound like amazing dogs… I don’t know Basset Hounds as well but I’m sure they’re also good family dogs. Good luck making a choice!

    Thank you! I talked to my family about the idea of flipping a coin, and everyone seemed to agree… at least for now!
