I just wanted to give you a 6-month update on our puppy, Ned (hunter green, born July 3, 2019 from Canyon and George). The first 6 weeks were a stressful time, but we made it work out. Puppy classes went well and he’s learning basic commands and his recall is getting better every day. He’s very good off leash at the dog park and out at the cabin and he LOVES the snow. Not as much as he loves his food though. He’s tipping the scale at nearly 60 pounds currently.
He brings so much joy to our lives. Not only my wife and I, but our extended family and friends. He’s such a people pleaser and is always seeking human affection. He’s usually more involved with getting pet by complete strangers at the dog park than trying to run around with the other dogs.
We are incredibly thankful that it worked out that we could get a puppy when we did. It’s incredibly rewarding being a dog owner, especially to an amazing golden retriever.
I’ve attached a few pictures of Ned. I think he looks a lot like Canyon.
Again, thank you for the opportunity to be a dog owner.
