And Then There Were Four


Wow, the puppies are growing fast now! It has been so much fun to see them placed with good families who will love and care for them. Now we only have three yellow female puppies and one black male puppy left of the twelve with which we began. What a fun journey this has been!

Bird Hunting with the Family

Jeff let the dogs run this afternoon in a field by our home. Sammy is always on the lookout for any type of bird, and this tree was full of them today. The puppies are learning fast what to do when they see a bird. Aren't instincts great?!

First Snow



The puppies had their first experience with snow today. Since they're labs, it didn't seem to phase them one bit.
I'm not sure who had more fun playing in this first snowfall of the winter, the puppies or my children!

Duck Training 101


Jeff uses a duck harvested from a previous duck hunting trip to introduce the puppies to ducks and the art of retrieving. It is a fun process to watch, as you can see for yourself in the video below.

Play Hard / Sleep Hard

Play, Eat, Sleep.

That's a puppy's life for you. Sammy's little family is so much fun to watch now. They chase the kids all over the yard and love to wrestle with twigs, leaves and each other. Jeff took this picture with the puppies up on the play system we have in the back yard.




After an hour or so of playing with my family in the yard, all the puppies settle down for a nice nap.







Aren't they adorable!

Play Time!

Sibling rivalry.... It starts.
