Ashley #4 Chocolate Labrador Retriever Female 6 Years Old ID #3034
Ashley is very friendly, sweet, affectionate and chunky chocolate farm girl who has had a few litters over the years. Please read her blog from the bottom up.
If you’re looking for a “sweet as pie”, loving, adorable mature lady, meet Ashley! She is a rather stately former breeder Mama who absolutely loves every human she meets. She would rather spend her day cuddled in your lap and getting hugs than anything else.
Ashley is a 7 yr. old gentle giant, who is finally finding out what life is like outside of having puppies. She is learning to walk on leash, and loves to take strolls, checking out all of those interesting smells. She also loves visiting and playing with her fur friends, then cuddling afterwards but she’d prefer to be the only dog in the house. However, she is not as fond of cats, and will give chase. Ashley is good with children.
Ashley would love a place where she can hang out outside and enjoy basking in the sun. She does need to lose some weight, so walks and playtime are important. But afterwards, she’ll be happy to chill with her people! Ashley also knows some basic commands – she is a quick study and eager to please.
Ashley would love for her forever home to be full of people wanting to love and pet her! Could that be you?

Ashley got spayed last Friday and is recovering well from the surgery. Even with all the playing and walking that Ashley has been doing, her weight has not really changed much. Ashley is getting more fit, and her stamina is increasing from running around so much with her friend, Kassy.
Ashley plays very well with Kassy, and also some other dogs, but she is selective when it comes to making friends. There are just some dogs that she doesn’t care for. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion! Stay tuned for more updates to come.

Ashley here reporting in!I’ve been on a new adventure since I last reported in. My FM told me that I was going to be going to Kamp for a bit. It looks like they think I should be dropping some of my baby weight because I’ve been going on a lot of walks with my new friend, Kassy. That girl has a lot of energy, and she says that she likes it when I chase her. She’s really been getting me to burn some extra calories. My life on the farm wasn’t this exciting so I’m not used to all this exercise but they keep telling me its really good for me.
I’ve been meeting some other furry friends through the fence but I’m kind of nervous about new furry friends at first, but I am kind of curious about what they are all about. I really like the people that I have been meeting, and they say that I’m so sweet, and affectionate!

I am constantly full of surprises! My second night went just as smooth as the first night, I slept soundly and was so excited to see my foster mom in the morning.
Yesterday I spent some time outside with my foster mom while she read her book and I kept her company in the sun. She threw this yellow ball and I wasn’t sure exactly why. I sat and waited for her to go get it from across the yard. All in all, we had kind of a lazy day which was fine by me. My foster mom swears I snore but I haven’t heard myself do it once.
My foster fur brother went on his walk first and I patiently waited in my kennel for them to get back for my turn. On our walk my foster little sister rode on this thing with wheels, they called it a scooter and it was fun to try and keep up with her. Her zooming by me didn’t scare me at all! I got some head scratches from the neighbors and it was a lovely walk.
Because my post is a day late, I can report to you that my third night went smooth again and I waited my turn to go outside to potty. We got some relaxing TV time in. And again, they swore I was snoring as I laid behind the couch. I’m still not besties with my fur brother but maybe with a little more time he will grow on me.

Well readers, AKA my future maybe forever home (I am assuming you’re reading this), today was a bit less whirlwind but still so full of smells and back scratches.
I slept like a log in my kennel, my foster mom was quite impressed with me. She was a bit skeptical that I wouldn’t wake her up since I did not want to get up to go potty before bed but I showed her.
I’m still a bit unsure of my foster fur brother so I have been relaxing a lot in my kennel, it’s so nice to have my own space and a comfy bed. I’m really not used to gentleman dogs so my foster mom thinks I just need some time to come around. As long as he gives me space then I think we can be friends.
I haven’t been too hungry for my boring kibble, but I finally had some dinner tonight while the humans were eating. I didn’t get that many treats today because of this silly diet and the humans didn’t seem keen on sharing their tacos so I guess kibble it is.
After we all ate, we went on a walk around the neighborhood. My foster human sister walked my foster fur brother and they gave me and my foster mom some space to explore. My foster mom seems a bit shocked by how strong and enthusiastic I am on walks given my curvaceous figure. She thinks I’ll be light on my paws in no time. One of the highlights of the walk was catching some glimpses and sniffs of the rogue squirrels running around. My foster mom did not let me chase after them but maybe she will on tomorrow’s walk. I know it’s a long shot but a girl can hope at least.
After a head scratch good night from my foster sister, I am off to doggie dreamland.

Well, I thought I had seen it all as a nearly 7 yr old mama (of who knows how many pups) but oh boy was I surprised today!
A very nice lady came to get me from the farm and I happily jogged over to her car to say hello. We went for a bit of a drive and then I met my new foster mom!
She took me to a slip and slide floored place where there were all kinds of smells and gave me a bath. She said I didn’t smell too bad beforehand but wanted to give me a good scrub down before heading to meet my foster fur brother and home. I enjoyed my bath and sat down nicely as she rinsed me off.
After we got back in her SUV, it was a little high for my short lab legs but she helped me put my paws up first and lifted my rather curvaceous rear up. I looked around but laid down after a few minutes and enjoyed the ride.
Next, we met my foster fur brother, he seemed very interested in sniffing me and I wasn’t too sure about him. I think he was trying to get fresh with me and I am so over that. I met a little human sister, and she seemed okay.
I hadn’t been interested in a kibble snack in the car, but I was very excited about some savory treats when we got home. I happily sat down when my foster mom asked and got my treat reward! We hung out in the front yard for a bit before we headed inside, I moved slowly up the stairs and happily came inside. I checked out my kennel with a treat offering. My foster mom says I shouldn’t get used to so many treats but today was a big day, so I get to indulge. Tomorrow starts my new diet and exercise routine. My foster mom called me a barrel of love.
I can’t wait to see what adventures we get to tomorrow. Until then I might take a snooze on my new comfy bed.
