    Meet Sandy

    I am now a dog owner. Sandy is a 14 week old lab.

    Congrats! She's a beauty!

    I love labs...had a black lab named, "Friskie" when I was a child. R.I.P. Friskie.
    A person who strives is one who thrives. It's GREAT to be THE KING!!!

    giff,

    she's great.

    We have a 5 month old yellow lab and she's awesome.

    Good luck with her, and make sure you play alot of fetch. She'll need lost of excerise.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Don't forget about Snausages, Dogs really go crazy for those Snausages... :-P
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Good looking dog.
    I too had a (Black) Lab growing up, loved fetching in the water.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    yeah, my lab loves the water. I had Monday off this week, so I took the pup to Lake Michigan to play at the dog beach. She made a beeline for the water and barely ever left.

    pooch

    I had a black lab we got from a shelter. Scooter and I were real buds. At 2 years old though, he was still very much a puppy. 75 pounds of puppy. Still, I'd get another.

    What a sweet looking dog! Gotta' love yellow Labs; cute, goofy, affectionate and loveable, every one of them. Makes me want to go and give my dogs a big hug.

    Lucky you! Lucky Sandy!

    Sandy must be the yellow Lab name; my brother named his new puppy Sandy, too.

    Great! Labs are cool. My sister has a black lab that is absolutely insane with energy. She carries branches (not sticks, branches) up steep hillsides and then growls at them when they snag on something.

    Great looking DAWG! Had a black lab that I referred to as Chester the molester - sweetest disposition of anyone or any critter I've ever known! Chester is now R.I.P.

    Sandy (he or she?) looks like a real sweety. Nothing like a walk in the woods with a good dog on a beautiful fall day. Enjoy.

    I know labs like water, but that's a long swim even for a lab.

    Giff - She's beautiful! You absolutely can not beat a lab for amount of silly adoration they'll heap upon you.
