I have been looking to get a puppy for several months now, and finally found a pup that needed to be rehomed. I *think* I am picking him up tomorrow, or Saturday. My oldest daughter asked for a puppy of her own for Christmas; we already have an 18 month old chocolate lab, Roxy. Now we'll be getting a 6 month old chocolate lab male, and already 50 pounds!!! He will be my daughter's (tho' I expect to be doing all the work!) and I thinks he'll be thrilled, and *I* am thrilled!!!

Here's a picture of him:

I will let my daughter name him. His current name is Benjamin but that's my 2 year old son's name! LOL!

And just because, this is my baby girl Roxy!

Okay I have to say, that top picture that the owner sent me... its cracking me up... look at the guy behind the puppy. It looks like he's leaning over and looking down at the floor. But then when you look down the "arm", there's a foot! ROFL! That must just be a dog butt in the picture!!! Great optical illusion!

Nope, not thinking of breeding. My girl is spayed, and I'll be getting him neutered. We go to the dog park soooo often, I don't need him getting jiggy with all the girlies there! :p

Thanks again!

I picked him up yesterday and brought him home! My daughter LOVES him and is thrilled beyond words! And my dog Roxy LOVES him as well! They are already best buddies! A match made in heaven, I am soooooo excited!!!!

My daughter named him Sir Tigger La Roo! ROFL! He jumps and hops A LOT! (I'll have to work on that!) He's sooooo agile, if I ever have time I'd love to get him into agility or flyball when he's older, because he'd rock at it! Unlike my Roxy who can't walk through a doorway without tripping herself or running into the doorframe! LOL!

He's a big cuddle bear, too! He needs a little training as far as not jumping on people, not taking off your entire hand when getting a treat, and the basics of "sit", etc. But he's totally house trained, and paws at the door to go out! YAY for that, because Roxy still has issues with this. She won't tell me when she has to go, so if I don't take her out enough she'll just pee on the kitchen floor. Argh!

Anyways, we're quite happy with the new pup!!!

;~) Kelly

PS haven't tackled any GOOD pics yet because the pups are so hyper together still, but I was able to snap SOMETHING that didn't look like two blurs when they were begging for a scrap at suppertime. (Tigger's on the right.)
