Last Saturday we said good-bye to Aspen, our lovely caramel parti boy whom we had hoped to use as a stud but who had a bad overbite, making him unsuitable for breeding.
He is going to a lovely rural property in Haliburton, about 3 hours west of Ottawa, where he can enjoy a fun time with his new family. Derek & Judy are a retired couple who enjoy dogs and outdoor fun and will provide a great home for our lovely boy.
Aspen had a grooming session Saturday morning and was all spiffed up and smart-looking when Derek & Judy arrived with their daughter to pick him up. He greeted them joyously - as he does everybody!! - and went with them without qualm or hardly a backward look.
I do miss his friendly presence and happy outlook on life. Aspen is a great dog and would have made a wonderful stud. He loved to play with our puppies and demonstrated a keen interest in them from the time they were born. He was always friendly and happy.
There is one positive thing about his departure - my underwear is now safe from being chewed to bits. (!!!) And with the imminent arrival of another litter, we did need to make space for more dogs at home. We still need to place Leo and either Scarlett or Ariel.
I am sure Aspen is enjoying himself out in the country right now! Good luck to you, dood!
