A.J. over at PupLove decided to offer a chance for doggy bloggers to introduce their furry soul mates. After spending several hours setting up features on my other blog, I’m rewarding myself with a little fun time so I decided to join the blog hop just under the wire.
Here’s what you should know about my furry Valentine:
Name: Honey (AKC name is Painting Life’s Sweet Moments)
Website/Blog: Something Wagging This Way Comes
Age: 1 year, 18 days.
Location: Ithaca, NY
Breed: Golden Retriever (my first purebred ever)
How We Met: When I lost my last dog, Shadow, to osteosarcoma in her jaw, I began to think about my next dog. After being a nurse for about 6 years for my various elderly dogs, I wanted a youn’n. And after having several “reactive” dogs, I wanted to stack the decks to increase my chance of ending up with a dog friendly to other dogs and people. I decided on a Golden Retriever and got a referral to a breeder (after getting the third degree from the breed rescue volunteer –way to go!).
The breeder is a serious hobby breeder who raises her dogs in her home and cares about their health and socialization. It was a great fit.
After several visits to see the puppies, the breeder helped us choose which pup would fit our lifestyle the best.
It was my first, and probably only, experience getting a dog from a breeder. And I have to say it was very positive.
Best trick: Honey knows the names of her toys and can bring them to us.
Favorite toy: Just about anything that fits in her mouth.
Best friends: Whoever walks up to her next–man, woman, child, dog, cat….
I enjoyed learning about Jack and A.J. over at PupLove. Now I’m gonna read about some of the other hoppers.
