I received this email and just had to share. Winston a golden retriever is a Q-Tip puppy I love all the puppy update I receive. We have some of the best puppy family’s ever. K:)
I wanted to write to give you an update on Winston. He is just the BEST little guy a family could ask for. He is so loving, gentle, and wonderful.
He is a great friend to Asher (our 4 year old) and is always interested in being wherever we are (which we love!). Asher shows his love for Winston with lots of hugs, despite our warnings that dogs don’t like being hugged, and Winston ensured these outbursts of 4-year-old affection like a champ. They love to run around the house together; Asher grabs one of his toys and runs with it, Winston grabs one of his toys and follows Asher.
He is just great at sitting, lying down, dropping things from his mouth, finding toys (like “Winston! Go find your red ball!” and he’ll go find it). He is also great during walks, he doesn’t pull, he “leaves” things he’s not supposed to pick up, and he is very good at meeting new dogs and people (he’s trying VERY hard not to jump up on new people and keeps himself to about 4 inches off the ground now, which is an improvement over the several feet of air we know he can clear when he wants to).
He has also lost his appetite for nipping at us. He never did go after Asher, right from the beginning he seemed to know that the little human was off limits for biting.
All and all, we love him so much and want you to know how grateful we are to you for him in our lives. He is so wonderful and so very loved by us all.
All the best for a wonderful 2017!
Sarah, Mike, Asher, and Winston
