hello there! my name is Brooke and i am the new mommy to Crush- a 9 week old yellow Labrador. i grew up with an old black lab, so I feel familiar with the breed, but I've never had a puppy of any breed before. Is it okay that he follows me around all day? No- I haven't crate trained him and honestly I don't plan to, so he is free to walk around the house. I just hope he isn't tiring himself out or that he isn't following me because he feels worried or insecure in his new environment. if i stop in the kitchen for a minute or two, he gets all cozy at my feet. but i never stand still very long, so he is up again when i move...lol!
