Part 2: still guest starring Gaston

Today we started out for the bus and work eagerly anticipating Gaston’s reaction to the wire crate at my job–the thing which would either let him stay through tomorrow or make him go home early. Well we got there and he did fine with it. Yaaay.

It was an exhausting day at camp, but somehow having a puppy makes it ten thousand times more fun. He spends most of the camp in the crate and then on my lunch break he gets to be loose in my break room and then he goes back in while I finish the camp.

I had this random guy come up to me (as is normal to puppy raisers) and ask a bunch of questions. Unlike most people this guy was really driving me nuts. He asked all the normal questions and then he just stood there and kinda watched me for about 10 minutes while occasionally asking random questions. Not watching Gaston, watching me. Eventually his bus came and he left. *whew*

The bus is pretty crowded, and he’s a huge dog!! We have affectionately nicknamed him “Moose”

 So far my experience with Gaston has convinced me that goldens are amazing and wonderful. He’s sweet, smart, can focus but also be goofy when not working, listens, and responds to corrections on the flat collar! I love this guy!!!

Haven’t seen the phase reports for the week, but as far as I know everyone is still in, and no one is in class…

  1. I love the pictures! I’ve never puppysat a Golden, but I would really like to. Their long coats are so pretty. 🙂

  2. I’m glad he’s being a good boy for you and can stay! He is handsome and does look rather large!

  3. Those are nice pictures! I’m glad that he did well with the crate, so that your visit didn’t have to be cut short. 🙂 I guess now you see why Emily and I are so bent on raising one of those things huh?
