our new purebreed labrador puppy is settling in nicely

We call her Shadow River Myers ...the new tiny addition to our family.

She is a 6-week-old purebreed black labrador puppy from an impressive line. Her father "Cowboy" is a chocolate brown AKC registered lab with strong hunting qualities. I think the breeder said he has been used to train other labs for hunting and is some kind of hunting star in some magazines. The mother "Lucy" is a pure black AKC registered lab, a real sweetheart with a docile loving temperament.

The mix has produced a very unique personality in our little Shadow. She is both cuddly and loving while at the same time very spunky and has a tendancy to "stalk" her toys before pouncing on them, which indicates some hunting instincts may have been passed down from her father.

Our son Joshua absolutely adores her ...and she appears to LOVE him, too. They've been creating quite a close bond over the past 4 days. I really like "evesdropping" on them and hearing Josh "teaching" her about the ways of the world. It is soooooo cute.

I'll be back to post pictures of them later this week.

With all the commotion going on at our house, we haven't had much time to build our business --- and yet it's been growing as fast as our family has this past week. We gave a sample bottle of our bestseller to the breeder plus a sample to our new accountant's client support rep, and our website is still doing fantastic.

My new test pages for the "secret site" were delayed owing to how busy we were, but I should be launching in them within the next 72 hours. I'll give you the link when it's ready.


Anyone else out there own a black lab? Got any tips for training?

I'd love to hear about them!
