Blog Your Dog: Astro
AGE: 7 human years
BREED: Black lab
GUARDIANS: Natasha, Laura, Carolyn & Cesare
FAVOURITE THING TO EAT: Anything. Especially Italian.
WHAT I LIKE TO DO ALL DAY: I like to wake up at 5am to get someone to feed me because I love food so much. Then, I like to fall asleep until I can go for a long walk in the trails and catch up with some of my buddies. In the summer, my favourite pastime is lying on the sailboat or going swimming in the pool.
FAVOURITE GAME: I love to play tag with my owners around the kitchen island or racing my owners around the pool as they do laps.
THINGS THAT VEX ME: I like to chase squirrels as they run up the trees and chase rabbits.
HOW I GOT MY NAME: My parents started off as my foster family. They were helping me become a future guide dog for the Lions Foundation. I was born in a litter that had all ‘A’ names. My family ended up keeping me though since my hips aren’t strong enough to be a working dog since I was the smallest lab out of my litter. Plus, I like to go swimming too much. Luckily, my family got to keep me – they tell me I’m the best part of our family.
