    DefaultGreetings from Grand Junction Colorado

    I'm the proud mum of a 4.5 mo. old yellow lab pup named Conor Larkin. He's quite a spirited creature. There is never a dull moment at our home these days. I think he may be a distant relative of "Marley" from the book Marley and Me.

    Most of the time he does as asked but at times he has selective listening issues. He does learn quickly though, one day to potty train outdoors. Didn't much like the potty papers, preferred to shred them as to use them. Our house has slowly become puppy proofed, and he has slowly left most of my shoes in tact. My husband's are another story...must smell better I guess, maybe it's a guy thing. I could write quite a comical book also.

    He seems to listen to me better than dad, of course I'm the major disciplinarian and he knows when he's stepped on last button. ;D

    Darby Regan will hopefully join the household sometime in the next several months. Conor will then have a playmate to drive him crazy!

    My biggest learning curve right now is teaching him to heal with a leash. He usually pulls, claws dug in the concrete pulling me along (I'm almost horizontal). He's only about 40+/- pounds but shear muscle. Any suggestions.
    Thank goodness for little labs

    Welcome! I adopted my dog from Canon City and my dad lives near Woodland Park, so **waves** to CO...hope you're surviving the dry weather ok.

    My 18 mo. old lab still pulls a lot too, but the prong collar helps. I've also heard the gentle leader works well. Depends on the dog. Have you been to puppy school yet? The trainer there might have suggestions too.
