Comet's dad says: Comet was born in Newton, New Jersey. Shortly after that he began knowing Fanwood, New Jersey, as home. After the loss of an 11-year-old golden in the fall, we decided it was time to get another to fill that hole in our lives. Comet is playful and energetic, but he has no problem dropping to the kitchen floor for a nap. He is learning to dribble a soccer ball and is great at bringing Frisbees back. He is quite the sunbather too, always reluctant to get up out of a comfortable position lying down outside. Not to mention how much he loves himself, posing in the mirror as we pass by or while we carry him from place to place. He has squeaky toys, but his favorite toys are shoes with laces. He was scared of car rides at first because they were only to the vet, but now he loves to stick his head out the window and bark at other dogs he sees.
