Cappy & Remi finally got to meet their new friend Emma yesterday. Dave and Patti Benton (LadyLabtrainer) came up to spend the day with us and brought their Ria and Emma with (of course)
Here's sweet little Emma (Ms. Em) with her new forever daddy, Dave.
Patti and Dave, with me in the background, sending all four dawgs on some land and water retrieves.
Some of the dawgs were a little more impatient than others ...
Ms. Em doing her thing in the water ...
After that and so they didn't overheat (it was already in the upper 70s) it was a quick wash off and out in the run to play before lunch. Uncle Jim brought some Kong bones out an dumped them in the wading pool to see how long it would be before Em figured out how to get them ...
Didn't take long ...
Then it was time to dry off, come in to play tug-of-war with Remi's stuffed animals, have a treat (or 2 or 3, etc) and then take a nap ... They did each very well ...
If Veronica didn't already have the name "Sweet Emma" in use with her lovely girl, I'd give that name to Ms Em. She is one of the sweetest little Labs I've ever met. She's only been at her forever home for 2 weeks now and you'd think she was born and raised there. She and Ria are great friends and within the first half hour here, Cappy and Remi were in love with her too.
And by the way, she's among the very few Labs I've met who can match Remi for all out speed and enthusiasm for fetching. At 2-1/2 she's going to become quite a duck dawg and maybe even an accomplished Hunt Test competitor.
GREAT pictures and GREAT lookin "dawgs"!
It's not the destination, it's the journey!
Heart warming Jim ! I guess it might be something to do with them all being yellows !
Looks like you all had an awesome day! Gorgeous yellows
Great shots-love the 2nd one
Always enjoy your photos Jim. What a great group of dogs!!
Looks fun! Love the tongue (dog on right) in the last pic!!!
