Who's a good boy? Yes, it's Aspen. Meet the newest Instagram sensation -- this dog is taking social media by storm. HUNTER LAWRENCE
The four-year-old golden retriever is the star of these images, shot by his owner Hunter Lawrence. The professional photographer says he had always promised he would never put a photo of Aspen on Instagram. HUNTER LAWRENCE
According to Lawrence and his wife Sarah, Aspen loves running around in the snow. He also likes freezing cold water -- he just wants to keep on playing. HUNTER LAWRENCE
Aspen is pretty obedient, according to his owners, so shots like this are a bit easier for Lawrence. HUNTER LAWRENCE
Aspen is never one to shy away from a dip in the water. He recently went to Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, where this shot was taken. HUNTER LAWRENCE
The Lawrences live in Aspen, Colorado -- which, like Lake Louise, hosts the world's top skiers on the World Cup circuit. They never expected their little guy to become a star too -- but every dog has its day. HUNTER LAWRENCE
