Arrival Story: We went to get one puppy, but Bo & Luke were just too cute to be separated. They are from the same litter, and had never been separated. They just seemed like best friends, and looked so sad any time they were apart. So, we ended up with two yellow lab/golden pups! Now, we have lots of chewed belongings, but we get lots of kisses every day too.
Bio: For the first 5 months that I lived with mommy and daddy, my life was spent romping around the backyard with my littermate/brother Luke. Then Lukey got sick, and I haven't een him since. I really miss Luke, and hope I get to see him again someday. Hopefully he'll come home and remember about me one day. I got very very sad after Luke went away, and rather than bring Luke back (I know that him being gone made mommy and daddy sad too, but for some reason they said they couldn't bring him back), they helped me find new brothers to play with!
For the past month or so, I've had a wonderful time with my new brothers, Othello and Falstaff (who are littermates with each other). It's not the same as with Luke - they don't understand me the same way my "real" brother did, but they're a lot of fun. And, they have a lot more energy than Lukey ever did.
Luke and I had graduated from obedience school, so now I'm trying to help mommy and daddy teach the little pups the rules. It's getting colder outside, so the little guys spend a lot of time curled up against me in the backyard - I have just a bit more fur than they do. Plus, they're really good wrestlers, which is great, because I love to wrestle.
I alert the neighborhood of all visitors
I dig trenches to ensure the safety of the backyard
I eat any flooring daddy attempts to place in the backyard - must ensure that nothing besides the concrete patio and dirt is back there!
I keep Falstaff and Thelli in line

7 THINGS ABOUT ME ARE
I *love* riding in the back of the pickup truck (strapped in, of course!)
I'm Thelli and Falstaff's "big" brother (hey, I *am* 6-months older than them!)
When mommy was pregnant with the skin pup, I about jumped out of my skin when the little bugger kicked me before he was born (I was curled up on mommy's lap)
I have chewed through the metal legs of the outdoor table
I have eaten a paving brick
I will NOT go into the water - no way, no how
I get to visit my foster mom about once every 2 months - just for an hour or two
Ok, so we won't be on the puter so much right now...
Mommy went away about a week ago, and when she came home last Tuesday, she brought this little squally thing home with her. It smells like her and it looks like a small version of her and daddy. Plus, her belly's a lot smaller now. It took me and Falstaff and Thelli a bit to figure it out, but Goldie finally explained it to us -- it's her new litter!
OH, so we have a human brother. NOW we get it! But, the downside is that this little one seems to take up lots and lots of mommy and daddy's time. So, unless grandma and grandpa are visiting, mommy doesn't make it to the puter much, and since daddy will never take dictation from us, that means that we won't be on here quite as much right now. We'll chat a lot more once we get back, ok?
