Roscoe’s Featured Friend of the Month: Turnip

back to blog

Is your new year’s resolution to get outside more? How about to appreciate the little things in life? Or maybe have a better relationship with vegetables? Well, we’ve got some good news: Turnip Auber can help you with all three! As a nine-month old Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy, Turnip is still just a young lass who has only been a part of the Roscoe’s clan since July of 2019. However, that hasn’t stopped her from feeling like family right from the start! With her spunky personality, big round ears and quest for constant fun, this little Turnip is the perfect ingredient for the recipe of life!

Turnip as an adorable puppy

Turnip and her parents first met when she was only 10 weeks old and still living in the Midcoast Maine region with her canine brothers and sisters. Turnip’s parents admit that at the time, a new puppy in their life was going to be a big adjustment. But luckily for Turnip, she was the cutest little nugget out of the bunch and it wasn’t long before her parent’s fell in love and made her an irreplaceable part of the family. Now, they can’t imagine their lives without her and the rest, as they say, is history!

But what’s a fuzzy little root vegetable to do in such a wide, wondrous world? Well, according to Turnip, explore, play, sniff, stop, eat, bark, and play some more! This pup’s pretty much down for anything and it’s become clear to her parents that Turnip has a zest for life that can’t be beat! Anywhere she goes is an adventure and anyone she meets is her new best friend, whether it be human, canine or some form of small, woodland creature. Some of her absolute favorite activities include being by the ocean, wresting with friends on the beach, hiking, taking a ride in the car where she can control the automatic windows, and cuddling up to her parents after a long day of play. And if she’s been extra good, Turnip’s mom usually treats her to her favorite goodies combo: the classic Kong toy filled with smooth, creamy peanut butter! What more could a puppy ask for?

Of course, when Turnip’s not busy chasing waves at the beach or posing for pictures for her rather (dare we say?) professional Instagram page, she’s heading on over to Roscoe’s where she makes every day an adventure! True to her nature, Turnip is friends with everyone at daycare and can usually be found tumbling around with her smaller canine companions in group. Indeed, there’s no time to nap for this spunky root as she’s got many pups to play with, ramps to climb and treats to beg for. And when it’s time to head outside, you can bet that Turnip is leading the way just as fast as her little, Corgi legs can carry her. We think it’s safe to say that Turnip is the sweetest vegetable there is!

“A turnip a day keeps the doctor away! What can I say about this precious Pembroke? She’s such a wonderful, lengthy ball of fur. Zooming around like a spinning top with all her friends, but she’s always sure to take a quick break for some belly rubs! We all love spending the day with this little veggie and once it’s over, we’re just waiting to see that happy little Corgi again!”– Sam Wing, Playgroup Supervisor

“We sure are pleased to have this frosty month’s featured friend be Turnip…and we’re not talking about the vegetable! She’s the Corgi with the cutest smile that will warm up even the coldest of these winter days. When Turnip¬† is here at Roscoe’s you can usually find her dashing through the agility ramps or racing against her four-legged besties. Turnip has such a high spirit and really honorable athleticism!” -Haley Dugan, Playgroup Supervisor

“Turnip is the most adorable Corgi and she’s always down for a good time. I remember her very first day here at Roscoe’s and watching her practically run down the aisle with her short, little legs to get to her friends like she’s been coming here all along. Then of course when I found out her name was Turnip it was just too much cutest rolled into one long dog. I love watching her bound about with all her doggo friends and when there are other Corgi puppies here, whoa watch out! I’m so glad I get to spend time with Turnip!”-Chelsea Dahn, Playgroup Supervisor
