So today, on the way back to the house I told Aspen we were going to race to the house. We started running and as he was one step ahead of me most of the way he kept looking back at me, and running sideways for a second. I think he did this to prove to me that even running sideways he can still run faster than me. (Of course I wasn't sprinting or anything.) He did, however, beat me to the front door.
|By far, his favorite toy is the soccer ball.|
Aspen is getting so big lately! I haven't weighed him in about a week, but last time I think he was 48 pounds, or so. Its crazy to think back on when we first got him and he was only 18 pounds. This last week he started to look a little chubby, and we don't want a chub-pup so we gave him a little less food and tried to make sure we were exercising him and giving him as much play time as possible.
Like Nate said, he is still such a snuggler. Even though he's getting a little too big for it, he still loves to come and sit on your lap and be as close to you as possible. I hope he continues to cuddle with us even when he becomes a full grown dog -- ps. I can't believe he'll probably gain another 40 pounds! At least he's finally growing into his body and doesn't look quite as awkward :)

|What a handsome pup.|
