Aspen was born in Traverse City, Michigan at Harborlight Newfoundlands. She was
our fourth dog and came to us at eight weeks old weighing in just under 20 pounds.
Aspen was an absolute sweetheart and easily the mellowist dog we ever had. The
term "gentle giant"
truly fit her. While her brothers liked to run and hike
in the woods, Aspen's favorite activity was always being adored during walks
through town. She was known to several of the shop owners in Leland and the folks
at Carlson's were always ready with some whitefish sausage for her when she came by.
Over the course of her life, Aspen had gone through two knee surgeries and never
really fully recovered from them. In the fall of 2014, her ongoing orthopedic
problems couple with deteriorating health got the best of her and she passed in
Suttons Bay in October.
