Labrador Retriever of the week :: Jasper
How old are you?
1 year, 6 month.
Where do you live?
North Lake Tahoe, CA (Alpine Meadows).
My own dog food and cubes of butter or anything else that may have been forgotten on the kitchen counter. I also like frozen femur bones with the bone marrow…yummy.
Frisbees and tennis balls of course, I’m a lab. Unfortunately my owners limit me because I destroy the balls into little pieces. Kong toys have become my most recent toys!! I also love to play tug-o-war.
Swimming is my favorite but hiking is a close second, playing in the snow and burying my tennis balls or just chasing anything you’ll throw.
Who is your best animal friend?
Ash, my Aussie friend who was adopted the same time I came to my forever home.
Who is your best human friend?
My mom, Pam.
Please describe your perfect day:
The sun is shining, the snow is falling into thick blankets of light snow, after breakfast mom and I go out and I disappear in the deep snow and play hide-n-seek. My perfect summer day would be to go to Lake Tahoe and hang out at the dog beach with all the other lucky Tahoe dogs and swim all day long. Afterwards a quiet dinner and nap on moms lap.
Do you like cats?
Not sure, I haven’t met any yet.
Any bad habits:
I hate to admit it but yes, I like to eat the tags off of the back of shoes, and my parents have to keep a baby gate at the kitchen entrance because I can see on the counters and am too tempted to stay off of them. I just have to look. I also like to lick the lotion off of moms legs…..oh I also will steal the food out of your hand if I can, I need to training on that part still, mom gets really mad.

Please feel free to tell us anything else about yourself:
I am a high energy lab who lives in beautiful Lake Tahoe and love to make friends. I always want to play more than I have the time to do, but they say a tired dog is a good dog, so if you are in the area look us up and let’s play! Woof!
