Cody is now almost a year and a half old and we love him more with every passing day. He is quite a character… Full of energy, curiosity, enthusiasm and affection. We get stopped on the street often by people who admire his good looks and gorgeous colouring. We’ve told lots of people about Chinook Goldens and your unique line of breeding!
Cody was also the “Dog of Honour” at our wedding this past February. We forewent a traditional bridal party, and Cody stepped in, bowtie and all, to make our day truly ours!
He loves playing fetch (it’s impressive how good he is at it, and man is he fast), meeting new friends everywhere we go, hanging out with his best friend Hunter, another golden in our building, and his new cousin Milli, my brother-in-law’s golden, going for boat rides and car rides, swimming in the ocean, rolling in mud, morning runs on the seawall, and lazy Saturday mornings in bed. As the doggie daycare manager described him… “Cody is 80% play, 20% obedient.”
Cody is the picture of good health, and has grown into quite an athlete. He has completed two levels of obedience training and starts a beginner agility class tomorrow, which we believe he will quickly be at the top of the class of!
Attaching some recent photos for you to enjoy!
Oh, and he is still intact. He is so active that we wanted to give him the best chance to grow strong, and he hasn’t exhibited any troubling behaviours. He is at a daycare while we are at work that welcomes intact males (the only one!) and he has had a very healthy social upbringing because of it. We have been in consultation with our vet and decided to wait until he is 2 years old before we revisit neutering him.
Thank you again for bringing our beautiful boy into the world!
