Aspen - Oakley/Goose 2017
A note from Aspen (Miss Pink)...
"Thank you Miss Stephanie and Miss Rhonda for selecting me, Miss Pink, for my new home with my family in Waukee, Iowa. They named me Aspen and although I miss the life on the farm, I do love my new adventure with Mom and Dad. One of the best parts is I have an older sister, Sailor ( who also is an English Cream Golden Retriever ).
I thought I would tell you what I do with all my time on a typical day. My day begins at 5:45 a.m when Dad wakes me up and lets me out of my kennel. I am such a good little girl. I have never have had an accident in my kennel and have always slept through the night! No cries from me! Now is my special time with my Dad as we take care of business and he rubs my tummy and plays with me. After 30 minutes or so we go inside and I wake Sailor up! Sailor sleeps in the den and I peek through the windows as she is waiting for me. I leave all my little nose prints on Mom's clean windows! Mom is the Queen of Windex! I am such a happy little girl and so well adjusted. I can't believe I'm only 14 weeks old.
My Mom has the coffee brewing and puts our leashes on us. It is time for all of us to go on our morning walk. I follow Sailor's every move and will sit at the corner till Mom or Dad says "okay" and I can cross the street. Everyone who sees us will stop and tell me how beautiful and how well behaved I am. I walk on my leash beautifully and am I constantly wagging my tail and taking in all the new smells (and grabbing the occasional acorn until they take it away from me). When we arrive home 45 minutes later it's my favorite time - time for breakfast. I sit while Mom gives Sailor and me our vitamins and puts my bowl in front of me. Sailor convinced me that breakfast is better with a few slices of pears or apples on top of my food. Yummy! Thank you Miss Rhonda for teaching me my dining manners.
After breakfast, it's time for me to watch all the neighborhood kids walk to the bus stop. They all stop and pet me and say " Hi Aspen see you after school". After seeing the kids off to school it's time for Sailor and I to take a well deserved nap!
All day long we have a lot of activity in our cul da sac! Our neighbors are putting an addition onto their home. With all of Miss Stephanie's and Miss Rhonda's imprinting, which was installed in me since birth, the construction noise doesn't bother me. I sit at the front door and watch all the trucks go by without barking or getting upset. (Thank you ladies for all your hard work!)
My day is full of exploring both inside and outside. At 9 weeks, I mastered the art of running up and down the stairs. Since my home has 3 floors, Dad put a gate up so I only have access to 2 floors. They are trying to slow me down. Haha! I love spending time outside with Sailor. I try to do everything Sailor does and I even come when Mom calls my name. She says "Aspen you are so smart "! I'm looking forward to attending puppy classes next month after my last series of shots. I'm a big girl now, and at 14 weeks I weigh 27.5 pounds. Dr. John, my Vet, says I am such a healthy, sweet and beautiful little girl who has a great disposition. Of course I do!"
Thank you Rhonda and Stephanie for giving Jon and I such a beautiful addition to our family. Aspen is our bundle of joy and we love her so much! Sailor needed a new best friend and Aspen has exceeded all of our expectations. All of your hands on training and hours you spend with all your newborn puppies produce exceptional puppies. We recommend Snitker Goldens to everyone who inquires about Aspen.
Thanks to you,
Sue and Jon Doll
