I have a 5 year old Chocolate and a 5 MONTH old Black, both girls. They are splendid dogs, my Choc has won many agility titles and a hunting title, she's fearless and a great hunter, plus she's a noisy watch dog and sweet with the children. Talk about pit bulls, we met a loose one while we were out walking and she stared him down. Here is her "don't mess with me" stare -- I interrupted a tug of war for the toy --
The little girl is too young to do anything but pick up puppy bumpers and duck wings, but she's funny and sweet and full of puppy energy.
You could go into the pen of the boy who sired my Choc and pick up his food dish, and he would be like, "You're going to bring that back, aren't you?" He was a sweet old lovable boy, probably couldn't have found a bird in a phone booth if you poured ketchup on it (he was a show champion) but my Choc's mother was a high powered field trial bitch -- she takes after her mom. The Black is mostly field trial, has a little conformation in her so she has the proper head and the otter tail.
What kind of Lab do you think you might go for, when you decide to get another?
those are beautiful girls. The rest of our story is that we got a cockapoodle shortly after, and that little guy is right for our family while the kids grow up. Max is a good little guy and he would be running with the labs right now if he had the opportunity, but small dogs are different. You know what I mean.
And the freaking cat just blew on the back of my chair. Kill the cats.
