My cousin gave me a yellow labrador retriever! I will have the puppy tomorrow. My cousin said that he will have to get my puppy vaccinated first. Oh dear! I am so excited! Not that I never have had dogs in the past but I am really so happy to have a new dog. I can't wait until tomorrow but I know I just have to be very patient because the shot is important for the puppy.

Well congrats on the puppy dog and I hope that it all goes well for you and I am sure that it will go well for you...I ma not sure that I would get the dog vaccinated the first day that I got him unless there was something that coudl be wrong with him or something like that because I think that the puppy would want to settle in a little first and if you give it the first day to do that I think that the puppy would appreciate that alot more becaues he starts getting more use to everyone and feels more comfortable

The puppy is two months old. It was love at first sight I would say. *winks* She kept wagging her tail when I saw her and she just wanted to play and play! Few minutes before I had to leave her with my cousin, she just stayed on one side of the sand box and stayed still as if felt that I was to leave her behind.

Frost - Frost stacking
Funny that you should mention eight below. You Remember Shorty from eight below the all white Husky. Well my Puppy is his nephew. I spent 800 on the pup and will be paying another 200 when I pick him up tomorrow for breeding rights. LOL!! If you go to my site and look at my discussion about getting my pup tomorrow you will see a picture of my pup Frost. LOL!!! here is the link to the kennel I got my puppy from. http://www.lauradalessiberians.com/Four of the pups from Eight Below were born at their Kennel They still have Mojo who is Truman. LOL!! Check it out I think you'll like it. I know that I was very impressed with these people and Lorri and Laura are very nice we have been emailing each other back and fourth about Frost until I get him tomorrow. LOL!!!

Congratulations! I have a black lab. He is 7 years old. Labs are the best dogs! They are so sweet and lovable. If you haven't already, get some good training books and refer to them a lot. It can be a long, arduous process. But, in the end, it is worth it. And, once your dog is trained, make sure to give them little reminders of their "tricks" and manners by reinforcing them now and then (maybe every 6 months). Just work for about 5 or 10 minutes with your dog and with treats once every 6 months. My dog tends to forget his commands if he isn't reminded that they are a good thing to listen to and treats are the best reminder. They have to be bribed sometimes. But, labs are a people pleaser breed so, they are usually among the best behaved and easily trained breed. Congrats again! Do you have a name picked out yet? My dog's name is Frizbee.

Congratulations on your new addition to you family ;) Dogs are great pets- always remember they are full of energy- and must be able to exhert that- so make sure you walk him often and play- because if not- he will find other very constructive things to do such as your chew up shoes or doorways (I have personally been through this before adding more physical activity to her daily routine).

Thank you for your advice. Yeah, she's got lots of exercise! When she comes with me to work, we often run around the parking lot. She loves it!

Congrats on the new Pup! The shots are really importiant. Make sure you get the next set on time. They need 3-4 sets of shots over 3-4 months. If you get the first set and wait to long for the second they have to do the first again. Make sure you get a good vet and get that baby in there every month for new shots like rabies, distemper, lyme, ect... Also if you arnt going to breed the pup them get it spayed or nutered as soon as possible, around 5-7 months old. The sooner the better. Spaying and nutering helps the dog from developing cancers and such, and is better for the dogs health. Good luck with your new baby!!

Thank you very much for the reminders. I will keep that in mind. My cousin is a good breeder. He is one of the well-known breeders here in our city so I believe I am backed up by good hands! Thanks again!
