Rowan was the first boy to appear, a large, healthy puppy from the start. From the first, he was a problem
solver (let's see, how can I get out of this whelping box? How can I get this tin lid off the floor?) and had unusually early use
of his nose. He has gone home with Chris Miller of Knoxville, TN, who plans to train him in Search and Rescue and therapy work. Rowan got an
early start on the latter career a day after he turned 7 weeks, when he went to visit a cancer patient in a local hospital whose
special wish was to hold a Golden Retriever puppy one last time. Rowan is turning into a large dog, and at 8 months already outweighs his mother
and is all lean muscle. His early training is going very well!
