George was born March 5, 2002, on the Mueller's farm to Pierre and Anne Oakley. All 5 littermates 3 female and 2 male were cream colored. She lives in Minneapolis with Lauren and Jeff.
Here I am picking up my puppy for the first time. Not much experience with this sort of thing. I'll leave it to you to interpret George's body language.
George and her sister Dakota at the Mueller's (George is in the foreground she has the smoother coat). We arrived at the same time as Dakota's family and had fun playing with the puppies. There was a lot of "Is this my puppy or yours?"
George's first bath. She really wanted in, then she really wanted out.
All dry and fluffy in bed.
George and Jeff in the kayak. The idea was that George would ride safely and comfortably in the cargo hole, but she wanted to be near her daddy. She's 11 weeks.
George meets her half brother, the magnificent Otis, while attending puppy kindergarden at the Twin Cities Obedience Training Club. Otis is 2 and 1/2 months older than George what a difference a couple of months make!
Here's our girly-girl home from the Pup Tent where she got her first hair cut. She's 15 weeks old.
A message from Rudolf and the Elves.....
This past July, Jeff took George camping on the Chippewa river in Wisconsin.
We took George to the K-9 Cafea very urban dog experience.
In August we went to the Two Harbor Kayak Festival on Lake Superior. Jeff participated in the marathon and fielded many questions about his doodle.
On the way home, we explored the shoreline at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.
We returned to Ely and Burntside Lake in September.
George's first Halloween.
