I was shoe shopping yesterday with this BIG guy! I heard a small child (probably about 3 years old) say "horsey, horsey" and point to Joaquin. Now, yes, he is a big dog...but I don't think he's THAT big! It was definately a new one in my years of raising puppies... I might be able to understand if it was Ontario who was even bigger than Joaquin and also had pointy ears...but it just made me laugh! Kids are cute!

Carlos's parents are Denzel and Maria. Denzel is black and Maria is yellow, I believe there are both black and yellow pups in his litter. So far he continues to be a wonderful puppy. So adorable and a cuddler. Of course I am totally in love with this little guy! Joaquin loves him a little too much--so for now their interactions are quite limited, but with time and patience I'm sure they will learn to chill with each other just fine. I am so lucky to get such awesome puppies! I fall in love with them more and more every day.

Joaquin seems to have turned from the silly golden puppy, to a serious adult golden dog. He is such a nice dog and everyday surprises me with how awesome he is!

I'm a lucky puppy raiser for sure!

I have a new puppy in my house. Of course he is a guide dog puppy and of course he is adorable! He was born on March 10th which makes him 8 weeks and 2 days old. So far he just wants to sleep. He managed to wake up and eat his meals...but it's hard being a 8 week old puppy and he's TIRED!!! So here are pictures...enjoy!

Joaquin is cute!

So a few weeks ago, I was really into watching the new BBC documentaries "Life". Anyway, while watching the "hunters" episode, Joaquin was also very curious and enjoyed watching. The entire hour he kept going right up to the tv to watch the chases! He loved it and I thought it was funny so I took a picture. Of course, he looked away from the TV as I took the pic.

Have I ever expressed my love for tulips on my blog??? LOL Anyway, of course I had to go to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point Gardens with my mom. And of course Joaquin needed his picture taken with the tulips...He is becoming such a handsome looking young dog!
