The new addition

Ladies and gentlemen meet the newest member of the family!

Well, the extended family, if we are being technically correct (my parents adopted him on Monday night), but he's close enough to my own family especially since I will be the one taking care of him most days for the foreseeable future.

Asher is about the cutest thing going, 12 weeks of pure golden puppy goodness. A birth defect left him with no tail and a urethral malformation (that has since been surgically corrected) but his laid back inquisitive personality is to die for and he is so soft you just can't help but cuddle him. He really doesn't act like a puppy, and it's impossible not to fall in love with him at first sight.

For me, he's going to temporarily satisfy my desire for a golden puppy, which is the next dog on my list (not that I don't absolutely adore Emma, and we're not in the market for a puppy anyway, but a golden is my dream dog). Asher will therefore be my surrogate puppy and, as such, he's coming everywhere with me (which is perfectly fine by my parents, the more socialization the better!) :) 

Today I took him to Connie's to meet her puppy, Judy (instant BFFs!), and Charlie horse (completely unfazed) and then over to the barn to meet Jan. From there Asher and I drove over to Tractor Supply to get him some more puppy food. Everyone turned to mush over him; how could they not? 

Best buds

Tomorrow Dan and I will spend some more quality time with him, maybe have an Asher/Judy playdate....I anticipate this puppy will not be leaving my side :)


  1. OMG! So so so adorbs. I want to steal him. He can come play with my golden puppy. :)

  2. SOOO adorable! My friend's mom breeds Goldens and they got one with half a tail (accident), they are the sweetest dogs! Congrats on your furry family member!

  3. ADORABLE! Tis the season for puppies!

  4. Awwwwwww!!!!

    My hubby's best friends mom breeds goldens and he has one who was born with half a tail. I don't think it makes them any less cute :)

    Asher is adorable!!!

  5. He is too cute, no wonder you're keeping him near you!
