Meet Moose, our new little man

I don't know when it was exactly, but mrC and I decided to add to our furry family. About a month ago we picked up this cute red golden retriever.

Meet Moose!

mrC was out of town on pick up day, so I drove by myself to Wyndham, New Hampshire to get him. The breeder brought out three 10 week old boys for me to look at. In true Goldilocks fashion, one was too energetic, one was too timid and one was just right! Plus he had the cutest little cowlick hairline on his nose that the breeder told me is called a zipper nose! 

Moose absolutely loves his big sister, Quincy! He wants to be anywhere she is and doing what she is doing. Quincy has been very tolerant of Moose as he learns how to navigate when she wants to play and when she doesn't. 

Moose loves to go for walks! At first his walks were strictly loops around the cul-de-sac circle to protect his little legs and until his immunity was stronger. Our neighborhood has more dogs than kids! We've slowly increased the distance and ventured out into the neighborhood. Like a true retriever, he loves to carry his leash.

Moose went on his first road trip with us to Castle in the Clouds which is about an hour and fifteen minutes away. He did great! We went on a little trail walk to a waterfall, checked out a trout pond and played in the grass. He fell asleep on the way home.

Moose is so curious! He's my little shadow (when he's not obsessing over his sister) following me around the house, waiting while I workout and sleeping at my feet while I coach my clients online. His little nose tries to smell everything all the time. 

Moose is a pillow guy, sort of! Although crate trained, he does have a dog bed that we are working to train him to use for quiet time. So far I think it is mostly working!

What else would you like to know about Moose?
