Mom told me I was leaving on Sunday. WHAT, I thought I was her bestest, nicest, pretti eh, most handsomest, lab ever. Turns out, she said I AM her bestest, nicest, etc., Labrador ever and that is why she is sending me out into the world.
The world consists of my Great Uncle Gator and his Human family, Mom's nephew and his wife. They have a nice farm and are young and want another lab. Mom said they could try me out and if I get along with Gator, who is getting on in years, then I can live there with him.
They are coming to get me on Sunday for a trial. Hmmmm, pass or fail??? Guess I better think about that a bit. If I live in their house I will have someone home with me all day and I can go camping and hiking and swimming and all that neat stuff with my great uncle. If I stay here I can play in daycare all day, every day and that is pretty fun. I can also have girlfriends now that I am all tested and passed. (Did I mention that my Penn Hip profile came back and I am in the top 95%?? Mom said that is EXCELLENT!)
HEY, Mom just said I could also have girlfriends IF I live with Gator at his house. I will come home here for the girls, just like Gator used to do. Hmmm, that changes things, me thinks!
I will let you know my final decision in about a week! HEY, I just realized I could also play with my Auntie Alfie, she lives with Mom's other nephew and his wife and two kids, and they are pretty close to where Gator lives. Could be fun!

Mom has been very, very tardy helping me write my diary entries! It was LAST YEAR when I did the last one, BOL!
Anyway, life is fine, I have had a few girl friends lately and Mom is hoping I have some puppies on the way. Speaking of, today Auntie Jeanne brought sis Gemma down for a visit and since she was just going out of heat it was hard for me to concentrate on playing and not butt sniffing!!! But, play I managed to do and we had a great time.
Mom just let a few of the other tinies come down with us...Beanie and Crystal and Toto, oh yeah, and Jethro who seems to think he is special!
The weather was pretty nice... cloudy and cool, which was great for us dogs. I did notice Mom shivering a bit, but hey, she had on her summer shirt! I was thrilled that the black flies were apparently frozen to death... there were just a few of them bugging us.
Anyhow, once we ate as much of the chickie poo as we could and rolled in the raccoon poo for a while, we got down to serious play. Gemma and I did a few rounds of plain ole butt tuck running...anyone with a lab knows what that is, hehehe!
Would you believe Mom actually LEFT one of the chickies down in the lab pen??? Yup, sure enough, she did but it was a very smart chickie and when we all chased her she ran right under all the blackberry bushes. No way, no how was I following her into that puckerbrush!!! Chrissy thought she could sneak in but the prickers won the battle and the old hen is alive to lay another egg, BOL!
Mom got a million photos and put some of them on my page, check them out!

I have to admit, I was a bit worried. It's really hard to be nice when you are a HUGE dog and all the rest of your family are tiny. They always assume I ran into them by intent when actually, I find it difficult to walk around with all of them under my feet all the time.
And, today we all got nice, meaty bones and they were all chewing theirs sooo slowly I was tempted over and over to jump in and grab theirs and leave them with my already chewed up one.
But, I didn't, and Mom said it was pretty nice to have me calmly lying on the rug, chewing my bone. I think she has no idea how boring life in this house is. It is MUCH more exciting to be over at daycare will all my normal sized pals. We can run and play and jump on each other with no one running, crying to Mommy.
I suspect I will be staying home tomorrow and Friday, too, since there are way too many dogs in the kennel and Mom and Tonya probably don't have enough time to deal with me over there. Oh well, I can keep chewing on my bone, I guess.
