Roscoe’s Featured Friend of the Month: Holly

back to blog

We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to our favorite, little, heart-nosed lady Holly Ditzel! This super sweet and adventurous 1 year-old, Golden Retriever joined the Roscoe’s family almost one year ago in September of 2017 and now, we couldn’t imagine our lives without her! Unique in every way, Holly has brought us nothing but laughter and smiles and we just know that once you get to know her you’ll catch the Holly love-bug too!

Holly first met her parents when she was only four weeks old and still living with her litter-mates. At that time, her mom and dad were still unsure of which puppy they wanted to bring home so Holly decided to make herself known in the cutest way possible! After jumping straight into their laps, little miss Holly followed her new, human friends around everywhere ignoring the many toys they threw for her and instead sticking to their side like glue so she couldn’t be ignored! When it was time to put her back with her brothers and sisters, Holly whined and actually stood on her back feet to lean on the fence and ask for more attention from her soon-to-be-parents. From that moment, her mom knew that she was the pup for them and the rest, as they say, is history!

What makes Holly or Holister as her mom calls her, so special is perhaps her perfect, little, heart-shaped nose. Split all the way down the middle, Holly’s nose definitely is an eye-catcher and her best, physical trait. It’s nice to be unique! And to top it off, she has the kind, sweet, all-loving personality to match! Indeed, Holly loves everything from hanging out with her favorite humans to cheering on her favorite baseball team at games. Adventuring is her middle name and there is nowhere that Holly wouldn’t go for a nice, relaxing walk (and a selfie or two!) Plus, traveling means that she gets to snack on some of her favorite, healthy foods including red peppers, blueberries, yogurt, peanut butter and bananas. She sure knows how to cook up a recipe for fun!

Luckily, Holly extends her love for adventuring and good times to her friends here at Roscoe’s. Nothing makes her happier than getting to spend time with her favorite canine companions and making new friends along the way! You can almost always find Holly chatting it up with her gal pals before wrestling with the boys in an adorable, puppy pile! Basically, whatever you’re down for, she’s down for. Plus, her good looks and sweet charm earn Holly lots of cookies. It’s no wonder she sleeps for days after a full day of fun. We’re so happy to know her!

“Everything about Holly is just wonderful! Her small size just makes plenty of room for tons of fun! I love the way she lights up the room when she comes in! From her sweet nose all the way down to her beautiful, golden tail she is Ms. Perfect and Ms. Popular and it’s been a treasure to watch her grow into the beautiful, little lady she is! I can’t wait for many more years with this special lady!”¬†-Megan Godfrey, Manager

“When I first saw Holly I actually let out a little squeal. She was so cute and perfect and her little split nose just killed me! I love having Holly in group because she’s so sweet and playful and nothing gets her down. She’s so happy to be with anyone and everyone and I love how big she’s gotten! It’s been so fun watching her grow. I love sneaking onto her instagram and looking at all the old photos of her. Adorable!”¬†-Chelsea Thompson, Playgroup Supervisor

“Holly is always the life of the party, full of joy, sass, and spice! Watching her grow into the young lady that she is becoming has been memorable. I always can’t wait to see what she’ll do next. Miss Holly is definitely a ‘golden girl’ from the tip of her nose down to her toes!”¬†-Katrina Hamilton, Manager
