Good Boy

Two Christmases ago a very good friend of mine had a litter of puppies. They were all lab puppies. There were six total. One black puppy and five yellow puppies. They were born around Thanksgiving. I just love puppies. I wish that there could be a breed of dog that stays looking and smelling like a puppy. They are just so darn cute. And these lab puppies were the cutest. They were so chubby and fuzzy and cuddley. Well, Christmas time came and my good friend decided that my 6 month old son needed a puppy. So, for Little Cowpoke's Christmas present he got a puppy. They were so cute together. They would take naps in the kennel together, lay on the floor together, and play together. I really could not have asked for a better puppy. He never jumped on anyone or chewed up toys or shoes. He was so easy to potty train and he came when he was called. A really wonderful lab. Now this puppy is all grown up. Bear is now 2 and a half years old. He is a sweet boy. Even when little ones like this creep up on him.

Cowpokette is so proud of her finding. She has never really been interested in the dogs. She would just look at them and let them pass. But the other day she noticed Bear. Bear has been such a great kid's dog. He just loves the kids to pet him and lay on him and feed him treats.

Bear loves her too. Even if she tries to eat his ears. It looks like he is licking his chops. Maybe he is related to the "Big Bad Wolf". "What big cheeks you have, my dear!" But Bear really just loves the attention.

He probably was hoping she would move her hands around his tummy some more.

Bear is my favorite. If I could have a mini version of him I'd want a dog too.

Hey!! I can't believe I found your blog, and it was totally an accident! I know you have very little idea who I am (as I with you) but we were both at the birthday party/playgroup yesterday, and we both have the cutest little baby girls. How's that for a hint??!! Anyway, cute pics!!

Aw what a sweet boy Bear is! I used to have a black lab named Bear :)
Our little puppy Daisy (lab mix) that was giving us so much trouble seems to have calmed down some. The kids are walking her more and she's behaving a little better. I hope she continues!
I too wish that there was a breed that stayed in the puppy mode! I can't resist a puppy :)
