    Since I don't have a puppy yet so I can't answer them al. But if I get a male I'm gonna name him Tal. The reason is that in the book This Present Darkness by Peretti, there is an angel who is strong, and never hesitates to do whatever it takes to make sure good trumps evil. Tal is also very kind and compassionate and caring. I thought those traits matched up pretty well with Lab character...

    What a great fun way to get to know our puppies!!!


    1. How did you choose your pup's name?
    Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I heard Bailey and said "that's it."

    2. How old was he/she when you brought them home?
    5 weeks.

    3. How old is your pup now?
    5 months

    4. What is the funniest thing they have done?
    Actually when she jumps on the deck at a full run and comes skidding and sliding like she's on a piece of ice is pretty funny. Seeing her approach things for the first time is funny. My birthday was the other day, and I had flowers sitting on the table when she woke up. You'd have thought they were a growling lion the way she reacted when she saw them coming around the corner from across the room. Also the way she reacts when she's startled by a deer or a horse for the first time is pretty funny. Up in the air like a cartoon dog, with her little legs pumping and not moving at all.


    5. What's the worst thing they have eaten?
    Part of an electric blanket.

    6.What's their favorite treat?
    We call it "puppy crack." I can't even remember the name, but it comes in a roll from an animal vet supply place.

    7. On average; how many treats do you give them per day?
    I'm not sure how to measure it, but probably too many :P We train for about an hour every day at lunch and sporadically throughout the morning and evening.

    8. How many cups of food is your little one eating?
    Two in the morning and two at night.

    9. What's their favorite toy?
    A two-dollar squeaky basketball from Wal-Mart.

    10. What's the worst toy you have ever bought for them?
    The Kong frisbee. She's very aggressive and possessive with it. Anything else you can have and look at and take from her. That item I have about decided to give away.

    11. What's the best toy?
    Her aqua stuffed puppy I got her when she came home with us at five weeks. She never sees it until she goes to bed and she has loved and gummed and cuddled it all her life.

    12. Do they sleep through the night?
    Ever since she was home the second night.

    13. Are they fully trained?
    I'm not sure what you're talking about. She's fully potty trained but we're only on the last week of puppy K although she is a star pupil ;D if I may brag a bit. She made an F in walking on leash for awhile but everything else she has excelled at.

    14. What are a few nicknames you have for your pup?
    Little girl, Bailey Cream, Hoss, Big girl, mommy's baby, cull, peejinks.

    15. what breed of dog do they most enjoy playing with?
    My daugher's border collie mix and a labradoodle at obed school who is her "boyfriend." They LOVE each other.

    16. What's the least favorite?
    My best friend's Boston Terrier. Only because she's old and crotchety.

    17. When is their most hyper time?
    In the evening when her daddy gets home from work.

    18. When is their most loving time?
    In the morning from the time she gets up to the time we go to work.

    19. What's been the hardest thing about owning a puppy?
    A lab puppy, the chewing everything. She's gotten sooooo much better, but for Pete's sake. My husband said we're not getting another lab, we're getting a German Shepherd. That's what he grew up with and we had one earlier in our marriage. We've never had a puppy chew EVERYTHING like Bailey.

    20. What has been the best thing about owning a puppy?
    I love pretty much everything about her. She's a cuddler and she's her own self, too. She's independent and feisty, but she's obedient and worth her weight in gold for entertainment value.
