Is it just the age? Guthrie had his very first "play date" this past weekend. Samantha's Elias(blacklabelias) came over to play. Thank goodness for good natured labbiness. If it weren't for that I am sure Guthrie would have gotten a bite right on his nose! Actually he may have gotten several bites based on the way he was acting.
Elias was the epitome of a mature gentleman....Guthrie the complete opposite. A obnoxious brattty know-it-all teenager! He invaded Elias private space and private parts for close to an hour. Very clear requests from Elias to "back off kid" fell on deaf ears. Running away didn't 'help much either...we all were subjected to the most high pitched yelping from Guthrie as he tried to catch his new "friend".
Here are a few pictures documenting the a bit of the toment that Elias endured before he finally "tamed" my savage beast of a puppy and taught him how to play "right". Elias....forever more known to me as "the puppy whisperer".
Keep in mind these pictures were taken after Guthrie had calmed down a little(a lot!).
Come back here you!!! Yelp, Yelp!
Yes...that is 80+ lb Guthrie hitching a ride on 69 lb. Elias.

Guthrie says "ha, ha....I'm taller than you are!"
Guthrie getting taught a lesson from Elias! "Take that you little whipper snapper"
Sam and Elias share a quiet moment.
Kiss? Hope he used some scope!
Sam...thanks again for coming! Can't wait to see you two again!
What great photos! Elias sounds like such a great and patient guy. And Guthrie sounds like a pretty normal Lab teenager, if you ask me.
Alfie gets alot like that with his spaniel friend billy lol FABULOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSS pictures!
awwww Guthrie you sound like a normal teenager to me too! He looks thrilled with his playdate Elias.
Good boy Elias for being a good sport!
Those are great pictures!!!
I love the hitching a ride pic, cracked me up!!!! ;D
Where do you live anyway? If you not far from Sam, you're not far from me.

Too cute! Wow, Guthrie is really a big boy! I could use the Puppy Whisperer to do a job on Bruno; my girls are too soft on him.
Love the pics! Looks like they both had a really good time.
Sounds like what I see at the DPs quite often. I see Elias running with a toy in his mouth and Guthrie in hot pursuit. My HK likes to grab a toy, ball, stick and run past other dogs trying to get one of them to chase her for it. I kind of see that in the pictures. I think they are just having fun and establishing their ranking.
Great pics, by the way.

Oh, Guthrie! I can't believe you are naughty! I wish you could meet Piper. Then you would really know what naughty is all about! ;D
The pictures are terrific! And Elias, you are such a good, good boy.
