    DefaultIntroducing--Missy--from down under

    Definitely a newbie to Golden Labradors--but not a newbie to dogs. Returned home from an overseas holiday with my Sister prepared for a very long overdue discussion with my Husband about getting another dog. We had to put our much loved supposedly kelpie down nearly 12 months ago and we had been unable to come to terms with what sort of dog to get next. He wanted another kelpie, I wanted something that did not need the level of exercise and freedom to run. Well I came home to this!

    Born the 20th December she is now a very bouncy Miss (who we now think we should have been could Melony due to her love of rockmelons).
    Loves Puppy School--the youngest but the biggest. We are only 5 minutes to a local beach and she just loves the water. I am hopeful that my 65 year old hips will be able to keep up with her. She has taken to her early training well--treat driven of course.
    Me, well easy--retired and live in a small country town in South Australia. With husband and old Burmese cat Dusker, who is coping "just". Half the time I think he is using his tail as a fishing line and egging Missy on.
    Have enjoyed reading through parts of the forum and picked up some interesting information.
    For now.
    Cheers
    (ps hope the photo works)

    Well original photo did not work via photobucket--so don't know what I did wrong there!! So used a small photo and attached "from computer" -- any help for a newbie would be appreciated!!

    Welcome to the forum! You have to get several posts published before you can post a picture. Your pup is a cutie!

    Oh, thanks for that! She may be a cutie, but she is in my bad books today. Found out why she was so quiet whilst in the care of husband--my new shoe was keeping her quiet. Still wearable but not quite as pristine as the now unmatching pair! Also blotted her copy book on the carpet. Not her best day today. But she is a delight. I am going away for a week, will be interesting to see if hubby keeps the training up!

    What a pretty little doll Missy is ! The yellow Lab is growing in popularity and see it in movies and commercials more often now them my personal fave the black Lab. My son when he was in Jr High saved up to buy a yellow Lab who was nearly white she was so light. So I do have a soft spot for them to. I am turning 59 yrs old myself this summer. So as one Grandma to another assuming you are a Granny -- I love dog walks and trips to the lake and state park. Keep me fit with arthritic joints and the dog fit and happy to. Love the out of doors. How is the training coming with Missy puppy ?

    Have just come home again after a couple of days away "again" -- this time to doctors. This time she has taken up reading -- obviously enjoys a good murder mystery, and again a good chew on admittedly old shoe. Thank you for your welcome. She has grown so much. Is now finished at puppy school and we are joining a local group for more socialising and training. Loves our local beach.

    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    to JL forum. Missy is a real cutie-pie. Our Duke is two now and still likes to snatch hubby's slippers but doesn't really chew them now, just likes the chase I think. I was 65 when we got Duke and he's kept me active in spite of a bad hip and knee. The walks we share are more for my benefit than his because he needs more intense exercise to work those muscles. I'd be a real couch potato if it wasn't for him.
