So we took Aspen in to the vet a couple of weeks ago for her 6 month check-up. And she weighed in at a whopping…31 pounds. And the vet doesn’t think she is going to get much bigger! Now, we very specifically chose the runt of the litter because we wanted to be able to take her on road trips (Our first one is next week! Stay tuned!) and we thought it would be easier fitting four kids and a dog in the SUV if the dog were on the smaller side. Well, we certainly accomplished that! I have been stopped by half a dozen people the last couple of days alone asking what kind of a dog she is because she doesn’t look like a puppy so much anymore but she is so petite, and while she does look like a golden retriever, many people are not familiar with the English Cream version, so her coloring throws them off as well. We joked that we should use her to start a new breed of miniature golden retriever!
We’ll just call her fun-sized!
