Stephanie and Rhonda,
Tomorrow is Dexter's 1st birthday. I want to share with you some photos taken over the last year and give you an update on his growth and progress. He was just 14 pounds when you trusted me with him, he now weighs in at 85 pounds. You could say he's pretty healthy.
My husband has nicknamed him Tanker. He is a soft and gentle big lug who loves to cuddle at night and is by my side where ever I am, either inside or out. If I am cooking, he's in the kitchen. If I am sewing, he's laying at my feet. If I am cleaning or doing laundry, he's always in the same room keeping a close eye on me. If I am gardening, he will follow me around the yard and to the shed.
I can not express in words the amount of joy he brings to our house. He is the most gentle, loving, caring, patient, playful, understanding, easy to get along with, and most kind canine friend a girl could ask for. He adapts easily to all situations. He frequently enjoys car rides to town for shopping and enjoys when I take him into to Lowe's and Bass Pro Shop. Our trainer Anna (who is amazing) informed us of stores in our area to allow dogs to shop too! The customers oh and awe over his beauty and many comment on how well behaved he is. He enjoys going up and down the aisle, staying close by my side.
We have completed 2 levels of obedience classes and will begin a rally class in February. We actually even ran into Joy [Elise/Marsi], another Snitker Golden from Iowa at obedience class. Joy is training to be a therapy dog. They sure looked beautiful together. And Joy is an absolute sweet heart.
All in all, Dexter is doing amazing. He can't wait for spring, long hikes and dips in the lake are calling our name. And our training is much easier practiced outside. Until then, I guess we will snuggle inside under the warmth of a fire and continue to watch our favorite TV shows together.
You truly have given me the gift of a wonderful and amazing canine friend.
