I got my beautiful Asa about a month after putting my almost 10 year old Tia to sleep. Bob was wonderful! When I got to his kennels, I thought I'd gone to chow heaven. He takes excellent care of all his dogs and is very open and honest in his responses to questions. I sometimes think Asa doesn't know he's a chow because he defies a lot of the myths about them. He likes to play fetch, he thinks he's the Wal-Mart greeter at the dog park and hasn't met a person he doesn't like. Asa means "healer" in Hebrew and he certainly helped to heal my heart after losing Tia. I can never thank Bob enough for this wonderful boy!
