About Us

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to a Girl & Her Golden, thank you for joining us on this journey as we attempt to survive puppyhood, and grow together.

So, a little about us. My name is Haylee Nauss and my golden girl is named Kinley. I am a 23 year old student studying, Recreation Therapy, while my puppers is a 12-week-old golden retriever studying, which mud hole is bigger. We are Nova Scotia girls who are passionate about the ocean, scenic walks, peanut butter & a boy named Chris!

I started this blog as a way to document Kinley’s grow and accomplishments, as well as to try and share our story of triumphs and struggles in hopes to help the next puppy mom. We look forward to growing together, and hopefully learning a few tricks a long the way!

You can also follow Kinley on Instagram and watch her grow day by day! Her instagram is @goldengirlkinley , check it out to see what mud hole she discovered today!

The Journey Begins


Thanks for joining me!

Chris (my boyfriend) and I brought home our little bundle of joy on January 28th, 2018. We had a little bit of a journey home but our little girl slept the entire way. We were both so excited to show her off to our friends and family, and start learning all about her & teaching her all sorts of new things!

Kinley has now become the focus of our home, she is sassy and spunky. Loves to play with us and her two kitty brothers, Cooper and Tucker. She is a big fan of bones, her kong filled with peanut butter and her giraffe tug toy from her auntie, Morgs. She keeps us on our toes everyday & we wouldn’t have it any other way. There isn’t a day that passs that she doesn’t make us smile or laugh!

It’s true what they say, all you need is Love and a Dog.
