Hi, it’s me, Aspen, checking in! I want to thank everyone who voted for my name! I just love it, and my foster mom says it’s the perfect name for me because I quake and wiggle my hind end like a little aspen leaf when I am about to pounce on or chase my 1-year-old foster pup-sister! The last few days my 10-year-old foster pup-brother has started showing me ropes of inspecting the yard. I stop to smell whatever he smells and look at whatever he looks at while we are outside. It is so much fun to tag along with him! I am starting to get more content and confident about being by my myself. I heard we’re going to keep working on this because it is good to know how to have fun by myself as well as with other dogs and people. Today, I ran to the patio door twice when I had to go outside. Everyone gave me so much praise and attention for going to the door that I think I may keep doing it. (I may not be food driven, but I sure do love praise!) I have been working hard to get ready for my new family. I am hoping the family will have another active dog to play with and people who like to snuggle! Well, I have to go. My foster pup-sister just let me know she wants to play tug, so I need to wiggle and run!
