Hi Don hope all is well. I wanted to share a picture of Gibbs with you guys and to let you know he's perfect, so smart, he knows sit come stay down ( sit by whistle) and heel he's almost mastered, we are so pleased with him. We'd love to come by soon. Take care chat soon
Hope you had a safe trip home yesterday, good travel conditions anyway. Thanks for talking me into the WC. A real positive experience for lab and owner alike (despite the overly vocal foxes all over the place). I'm learning finally, after two quality stock labs, that you need to trust that they will do what they're engineered for, RETRIEVE. Not sure if it was the environment, but Bela has never been more eager to return a bird to hand ASAP than for those four retrieves yesterday! All this in the four toughest conditions she's faced to date. All good signs.
Thanks for giving me what I asked for, a high energy, hunt intelligent and at times stubborn hunting partner. Oh yeah, she's also a great pet, forgot that part :)
Thanks. Movers come on Monday! It's been very busy with saying goodbyes and getting ready to go. Merlin had is next round of shots and check up today. He's doing well, up to 18 lbs and by all accounts going to be big MALE! :)
He's zonked right now, he was out all day socialising; he's Mr. Personality and for a puppy very well behaved. After just a few weeks I'm not sure what I ever did before him!!
He tried to walk on water earlier today and discovered that he should stop at the end of the floating dock if he wants to stay dry - it was hilarious! But he didn't mind it and went back in after.
Here's some more! And I don't need to tell you that everyone remarks that he is the cutest Lab they've ever seen!
Merlin is doing well, packed on 2 lbs in a week and I swear he grew overnight last night as well. House training is a work in progress but he sleeps through the night and he has already got a good grasp of 'come' and 'sit' but of course he is a far cry from 'stay'!!!! He has the attention span of the second hand on a watch! No issues with the felines, Merlin wants so badly to play with them but they are not interested, someday they will though.
Here are a few pics.
