He loves a good tummy scratch, SNOW, getting brushed, any kind of attention at all, head scratches, getting to hiking with Mom, swimming (espically when it is hot) but he likes to swim in the winter too, Car rides, and killing small furry creatures.
Alaska biting him trying to make him play, basicly Alaska! And Snowmen, hates them, barks and barks at them.(then pees on them) HATES the vacum cleaner.
Well Aspen is much to dignified to play with toys, but he does like the occasional tennis ball
Aspen LOVES any kind of Cheese, loves omlettes, greenies, RAW MEAT!!! That is his favorite. He loves a good raw bone too.
He loves to go to the baseball field, West Hartford Center, the resivour, Elizabeth Park, anywhere there are people.
He does alot of tricks, but I think that Bang Bang Dead Dog is the best
Aspen was a rescue. I got an e-mail from a lady in VA who owned him, it seems that Mr. Aspen killed a few chickens, and was taken to court, and deemed a "poultry killer". He was condemed to die. His owner at the time had bought a little time and convinced the judge that if she could find him a home, that he wouldn't have to die. So she sent out this e-mail, and was hoping that someone could help her. I let her know about the rescue in VA (I used to live there) . I didn't have any intention of taking him myself, I thought maybe I can help this poor dog. We had discussed getting another dog. Alaska was getting bored with us humans.We weren't sure if the time was right. Something about his story spoke to me, and I wanted to find out more. I called him owner, and after being on the phone for almost 2 hours, we decided to take him in. We didn't even know what he looked like, we just knew he was white. So he jumped on a plane and came to CT! That was in Nov. 2004. We love him completly!!!!
Aspen was trained as a service dog. The reason that he was not allowed to participate in the service dog program, is that he for one does have a high prey drive, and he has one "split eye" it is 1/2 blue and 1/2 brown. People said that they found that "creepy" I think it is beautiful!!!
Just chilling out..THINK RESCUE FIRST!

Hi all, I just wanted to catch up. We have been really busy playing in the snow, and having fun. We have been going to the field every morning and I guess that some people saw us and now everyone is comming there with there dogs. I guess that is ok, I don't really like to share my mom with other dogs, but if I have too. As long as they know that I am the boss of everyone, it's cool.
Alaska has been her normal self. She tortures me all of the time, but I guess that is what having a little sister is all about. There are a few times though that I have to beat her up, just so she remembers that I am the "Big Basa" around here. At play group the other morning, this big black dog that I don't know jumped on Alaska and was getting a little rough, so I had to take care of him. I can beat on her all I want, but NO ONE else can. She doesn't stand up for herself, so that is my job as big brother.
Dad has been really sick with the flu, so I have pretty much hung out with him. I haven't left his side more than a few times. He might need me for something. Well off to go find some dinner!
Unitl next time

Ok, it's been awhile, but I have been very busy! Mom went away for a week and didn't take us with her. That kinda sucked,(she went to Nanny's and I really wanted to go) but we stayed and hung out with dad. I made some new friends. At the baseball field yesterday, I met these 2 5 mo. old Red and White Siberian puppies. They are brother and sister, and boy did they wear me out! I'm an old man and can't hang with that pups. The boy pup kept tryign to hump me, and I kept having to tell them NO! But finally they get the message, and it was cool.
My sleeping quarters have been UPGRADED! Mom and Dad put me a nice big bed in their bedroom! Alaska doesn't get to sleep in there, She isn' t a good girl, or special like me!
I did get into a little trouble since the last time I wrote. I bit the dog next door. He was peeing on MY WALL! Can you believe it? You would think that he would know it was mine, I mark it at least 4 times a day. But here he came, his name is Angus, and I don't like him at all. I saw him out of the front door, and jumped up and opened the screen, and went out to teach him a lesson. Nanny was visiting, and she was out there, and she caught me before I could really beat him up, but I still got my point across.
Mom was mad, she said that Angus had to go to the vet. But he didn't get stitches. She told me I was VERY expensive. I don't know what that means, but Mom gave Angus' Mom some money, and kept telling her sorry. I don't know what she did, but it must have been bad.
Well, I am off to go take a nap!!
until next time...

Today started out as a good day, but somewhere it went horribly wrong!! Mom took me down to the baseball field. (I need my privacy when I poo) so I was over in the deep grass, when I heard a "sqeeek" so I got down into attack mode. And then I pounced!! I came up to show mom what I had caught! A Chipmunk! It was still alive and squirming, Mom was yelling at me to drop it, but if I had dropped it I wouldn't have been able to eat it! So I hurried and ate it fast. Mom was not happy. We went home immediatly. She was telling dad, and dad was kinda laughing, but mom was not.
She kept saying "It was so gross, and he was bringing it to me! Like it was a prize! Then he devoured it right in front of me! YUCK!"
Mom kinda ignored me all evening because I was a bad boy and didn't do what she told me to do. I just wanted to show her what a great hunter I am! I wanted her to be proud of me! Finally mom came around, but I know that she wasn't happy about my dinner! Oh well..
Until next time!
