    DefaultIntroducing myself!

    I'm so excited to be a part of this forum and begin my journey with my new 3 month old lab, Miller. I don't have him yet, hopefully today or tomorrow.
    My name is Sheila and I'm a mother of 3 boys, ages 6, 4 and 18 months, and now I'm adding yet another "boy" into the mix! So, how many of you think I'm a bit crazy? No worries, with your guys' help I think I'll be good to go!

    Sheila.

    Thanks, we did get our beautiful chocolate pup tonight, and he is still very shy and adjusting to his new life. How long does it take for a puppy to start relaxing in his new surroundings?
    He is my first lab, and I'm beyond thrilled! I've wanted a lab forever!! I will get a picture posted asap.

    PS. When we got him we felt Miller didn't sound right so we changed it to Chaco (sounds like Taco, but with a "ch"). Its a place in Paraguay where my husband grew up. We now live in Canada.

    It depends on the dog but usually in a week or two they start to settle in. I like the name and cant wait for pics!

    Welcome to the forum. My advise to you is please do not let your puppy swallow any of those children`s toys They try to eat everything and that will do them a lot of harm and create huge vet bills. I was always fishing things out of Jacks mouth and probably that went on for 2 years. Never leave him with anything he could swallow when he was alone. They can swallow all kinds of things that would surprise you. Love him and keep him safe.
