This is Tipper (well, she's Tipper unless we change it....we had decided on Winnie, but changed it to Tipper. Tucker and Tipper...now I know you're not s'posed to have names sound similar, but.....)
We got Tipper from Judy McCormick (Keepsake Labradors). My vet mentioned her way back when we got Tucker....said most of the dogs she sees are from Keepsake, and she's never seen one with a bad temperament. We heard of dogs available (through my hairdresser, who's also Judy's, plus they're friends), and went to look last week. Hubby liked this little female, so we went back yesterday and got her. She's 5 months old, still losing her baby teeth, not too bitey (YAY!), but has a very soft mouth. She's very good onleash, had only 1 poop accident yesterday.
She's great with the crate...put her in for the night, and this morning when Tucker woke me to feed him, there she was, just sitting there as though waiting for us. She's very laid-back and quiet, like Tucker, with the best temperament, just like him.
She was nervous and scared for the first hour or so, then settled right in. Tucker's been an absolute gem with her....I've always said how lucky I was when he came our way. She grabs his toys, bones, or whatever and he doesn't bat an eye. They've even eaten some out of the same bowl; no problems. They play together well, then both take breaks. She was jumping up on the kitchen cabinets and such, but today it's much better....she sits and watches me while I cook, just as Tucker does (though harder to maneuver between the two). A bit of bitey-face starting, but I watch it; don't want her hurt...butt-tucking too! (there goes my Martha Stewart house). :-\ I think this is gonna work out just fine.
