Meet the Dogs

Last night, just as the sun was setting, the dogs arrived. It was crazy, as you can imagine. Six full-grown and VERY EXCITED Labradors aren't the easiest to control. So we were smart, and only moved one at a time from the car to the kennel.

Here they are, in no particular order:






They seem to be adjusting to their new home just fine. Jazzi has been a little bit shy, but Doc and Lucie make up for it with their overabundant exuberance. Note to self: don't ever wear your sassy town clothes out to the kennel again, unless you WANT them to become polka-dotted with mud and pawprints.

As far as we can tell, all 4 Mama dogs are pregnant, so they get their own boxes to make cozy. The boys, however, are shacking up together for now, and don't seem to mind in the least.

We have kept them gated for now, to let them get used to their own boxes and home, but hopefully this evening, once the Mister gets home from work, we'll be able to let them out for a bit of a romp in their new field.

Thanks for coming along on this journey with us! And if you're not so much of a dog person, never fear... tomorrow I'll be sharing a sneak peek of a new design I've been working on that I am really loving. Until then...

Hi Beth, I'll trade you one of our English bulldog puppies for one of your Labs. Win won't be having puppies for another year but they make great together pals. Win sleeps on top of Otis, it's hysterical. I will be sending out some Lab books for the kids, so keep your eyes out! Love, Deb

Beth, I hope Matt's parents have one of their dogs? After putting so much love into their pack, I can't imagine them without at a dog? I was thinking of them last night as we all hunkered into bed. Me on one side and Den on the other clinging for life!!!! Are babies in the middle!

I love it. Labs are a fixture around here. The big brown dog at our house is the sweetest thing. I love watching all about this. Plus all your dog finds. Will have to do a search as several friends are lab owners, fun finds for gifts. Thanks.
