    DefaultHello from Austin, TX.

    I just adopted Lady, a 12week old Black Lab, from the Humane Society. She's a sweetheart (of course!) but she needs some training. I think I do as well. I'm 36 and I haven't had a dog since I was a kid. I'm determined to be a good dog owner, but...oh my...a puppy can really try one's patience. I don't yell at her when she has an accident. I know I should have watched her more closely. I think she's beginning to understand that she needs to go potty outside. She's also learning to come when I call her. Those things are cool, but something else I'm really happy about is that she's apparently learning "put it down" after she fetches something. I fell in love with Labs when my sister got Louie from her father in law. He was the most wonderful dog. He lived to chase the tennis ball and he would drop it when you said "put it down". I'd go visit just to see the dog 8)

    I'm sure I'll have LOTS of questions. Thanks, Lee
    Lady at 12 weeks.

    Here are a couple of pics. I didn't post any last night because I don't have my digital camera. I'm borrowing someone else's and I can't get teh screen to light up. It's hit or miss. I cleaned them up a bit in Photoshop, but I'm no guru.

    This is my baby girl resting after we played outside this morning.

    This is from 3 days ago.


    What a sweetheart. That's a toy squirrel on the right. She loves that. My mom got it for her, along with a duck. She goes crazy for both of them. You should see her running across the yard with the duck. If she's holding it by a wing, she might trip on the opposite wing. She did that a couple of days ago and did a sommersault.

    Lady at 12 weeks.
