Well, today my Auntie Janine and Uncle Tyler took me for a ride. Gator came along, too. We stopped at Mom's sisters, then she and Auntie Janine took me over to visit Mom!!! I marched right in, I was soo happy to see her and the other guys. Auntie Janine and Mom's sister visited for a while, but they were in a hurry cuz my new home is RIGHT near the coast and we are supposed to have a HUGE blizzard again tonight and tomorrow.
Anyway, I stayed here cuz Mom said I have a girl friend in the kennel. Cool, a visit AND a girl!! First thing, Mom got all dressed in her heavy Winter clothes, grabbed a camera and took me and Toto and Cryssie and Beanie down to the lab pen. She even grabbed a new stuffie for us to take along.
Sadly, we got to the gate and IT WOULDN'T OPEN!!!! We all pushed and pushed but the hinge was breaking so Mom said NO MORE!!! I guess since I haven't been here she hasn't been keeping up with the trips to the lab pen. Guess that makes sense... I am the lab, after all!
Soo, we spend some time playing in the upper pen. It was okay, the snow was packed down though and I would have preferred some fluffy stuff. Mom got Angie so I could play with her, too. But, she left all the wimpy ones inside since it was only 13 degrees and sure enough, the blizzard was starting and it was blowing and snowing already.
So, we are now back inside watching the snow fall. This is VERY BORING. Once you've watched it falling for a while it gets pretty old. Mom said we could watch the cars playing bumper cars on the big hill instead. That is pretty fun!!! They all drive way too fast then slam on their brakes and slide right into the ditch. Soo, the next one comes along, sees them in the ditch and they are watching them instead of watching the road and BAM, they are in the ditch, too.
Mom said this is very slippery snow because it is very, very dry and like little pieces of ice.
Maybe tomorrow Momsie will get her shovel and open the gate so we can play in the REAL snow??? Could be fun!!!

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!
