Aspen is a Chinese shar-pei who lives with Lynda Corkum, administrative secretary at the Schulich School of Law.

Name: Aspen

Nickname: Azzie

Species/breed: Chinese shar-pei

Age: 12.5 years.

Fave food: Sardines

Special tricks: His sense of smell is amazing! We had rats living in and around our green bin a few winters ago. Aspen was the one who alerted me to this. Now, all I have to say is “Where are the dirty rats?” and he goes right to the green bin. He is an excellent guard dog. Nothing happens outside of the house without Aspen alerting me to it. He is also a cuddler extraordinaire.

Best quality: Everything about him. He is loyal, gentle, affectionate. And cute as a button!
