    date back

    Can I say? (Talking about my happiest childhood memory)

    If I had to choose one, it would probably date back to the day my parents gave me a puppy...

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I think it'd be better to say --- "If I had to choose one, it would probably be the day my parents gave me a puppy."

    I think it would work better if you were asked about your earliest memory.
