    DefaultIntroduction to H

    Hello—

    I'm not much for internet forum introductions (or internet forums), butI figure that if I wish to ask questions here, it's best also to provide an introduction before doing so.

    Owner to a now-10-week old black AKC English Lab bitch, H. H has been very easily crate-trained (evenings; car), hugely eager for training, adjusting well to a house with two older male cats. Is presently in obedience classes (with daily training at home), and I may do conformation classes later on.

    I did grow up with labs and lab mixes, but it's been a while. I am in close contact w/ the breeder for any serious issues, but look forward to finding a community of fellow lab owners here—English or American; purebred or mix. I'm an equal-opportunity Lab Lover.

    Trying to figure out how to post photos.

    Nope. I can't figure out how to post photos. Maybe this will work? (I am sure it's not the right way) At 8 weeks:

    Well, I'm not sure if this will work, but this should be H at 9 weeks:

    And most recently, at 10 weeks:

    H 10.jpg

    She's a super sweet pup, marvelously bred (I had researched the breeder for some months, and waited for her for about half a year). Just a wonderful dog, and wonderfully socialized (in about three weeks with us, she's met over 130 people of all physical types, police officers, sirens, the Blue Angels, wheelchairs, other puppies and adult dogs, elevators—nothing flusters her).

    At 8.5 weeks she was 18.2 lbs (at 10.5 weeks now I'd guess she's about 24 lbs), and so will be not a huge dog, but one of fine muscle and substance.

    For food she's on three meals a day, a bit over a cup of Purina Pro Plan large puppy kibble at each feeding, with additions of fish oil, a chopped baby carrot, and nutritional yeast in the morning; plain kibble at lunch; kibble a bit of with boiled chicken, nutritional yeast, and a spoonful of plain yoghurt at night. These are big sturdy dogs with lots of energy and muscle.

    Many thanks! Her eyes are gentler than her needle teeth can be as we work on bite inhibition... But yes, she is a very sweet dog.

    I sprinkle nutritional yeast out of habit—we do it on our cat's food (and our popcorn), as well. It's high in protein and B vitamins (the latter not really a concern for dogs), but mainly it sort of kicks up the flavor. Not that she's a reluctant eater.
