Favorite Walk: Through Central Park, to the dog park
Best Tricks: Sit, down, leave it, wait, paws, wave, stay, come; go say hi!, speak
Arrival Story: I've been trying to convince my mother to get me a dog since I was 8. Since then, I've graduated elementary, middle, and high school, gone off to college and survived 4 years of university torture, graduated and come back home, at which point I told mom: I'm getting a dog and you're just going to have to deal with it! Why a Sibe? Not sure... but some time in high school "I want dog!" evolved into "I want Husky!". No one can accuse me of not being tenacious!
After a very long 8 hour long ride in a (very) small car with mom, Aspen came home on January 17, 2011... and life hasn't been quiet or simple since!
Bio: Arrroooo! I'm Aspen. When I grow up, I'm planning to add some fancy letters after my name: TDI. These will surely only help me with my chief ambition, nonstop eating! After all, well-mannered dogs that cheer up kids, the elderly, sick, & sad people will have free access to all kinds of delicious edibles, right? That's what I thought too. **As of June 12, 2011, I passed my therapy dog temperament & training evaluation with FLYING colors and will be skipping directly to the advanced training class!** Other great news: On September 24, 2011, I passed my Canine Good Citizen test on the first try with flying colors! My mom is so proud :)
I understand that I will continue to have work very hard for those letters... for now, I'm busy sleeping and chewing on toys. Oh, and I go outside a few times a day to "potty" but that's really just an excuse to chase leaves and birds, pick up sticks and branches, meet & play with EVERY dog that passes by my block, locate and try to play with the super's cats, be pet & fawned over by all the humans that see me, and last but certainly not least, get treats from my buddies in the wine store. My human calls it "socializing" but I call it fun! I go to visit my human's grandmother in a place called a "nursing home" a few times a week and shower any part of her (or any other old person) I can reach with doggy kisses! They give me lots of scratches too. That place is really quite fun. I've got a TON to say, so when we meet and I start howling at you, just try to understand, ok?
