I bought her in 1975 while living on campus at the The University of Georgia.
When I visited the breeder another girl was there who wanted Brandy.
The girl was also living on campus and wanted the breeder to hold the pup for two weeks until the quarter ended. The breeder was moving and needed to sell Brandy ASAP, so I bought her and successfully kept her hidden for two weeks.
I sang Golden Ears to Brandy...
modified from David Bowie's Golden Years.
Brandy and I were happy to move to the North Georgia mountains.
Brandy was my first of three Golden Retrievers.
