Our friend's new puppy

Today we drove over the border into Maine with our friend Caryn to pick up her new puppy. She got her older dog Zoe at the same place nine years ago. Zoe has been on the blog once before here. (scroll all the way down)

Zoe and little Tallulah show us why Labrador Retrievers are the most popular dog breed in the US. They are wonderful. They are cheerful. They love everyone. They have a great sense of playfulness. Really the perfect dog. Oh, and need I mention adorable?!!

  4. Definitely worth a blog post, these two! Thank you for showing them to us.
    I guess they are the perfect dogs - as long as there is enough space. Sadly, many people who really have neither the space nor the time tend to get such large dogs here in Germany, simply because they like the idea of having a dog, and find them adorable when they are puppies.
    In your area, most people seem to have big houses and gardens, and generally seem to have a more responsible approach on pets than here.

  7. Oh be still my heart. That sweeet face. I had a Choc Lab for 15 years. We are dogless right now. It seems entirely too quiet most of the time. This is the first time in 30+ years I have been dogless. I haven't been 'seeking' a dog. It seems they come to me when the time is right but when I look into these sweet faces I makes me itchy for my dog to come home.

  9. Beautiful puppy bellies, puppy breath, puppy curiosity and puppy cuddles. Then one day they become beautiful, intelligent animals that you love until you die. I have 3 dogs and love them all to absolutely pieces.
