Raising Litter Mates



Our labrador puppies are growing up fast! They are eight (8) months now, and they are transitioning into good little dogs. Okay, not so little, I think they may be about seventy (70) pounds. I will take them in to get weights on them soon.

Eight Month Old Black Labrador Litter Mates

Our black labrador litter mates are doing awesome! They are growing up into quite handsome dogs.

About a month ago they had a sleep-over at the breeders - and they had a great time, and behaved well. They didn't appear to miss us much, and they had a great time playing with all the other dogs and puppies there. It was such a relief to know that they were in good hands, and they didn't seem traumatized when we went to pick them up the next day. We spent a bit of time watching them interact with the other dogs before leaving them there, the breeder had a litter of puppies at that time also, so we were able to play with them as well. They were adorable!!

When it was time for us to leave, we were worried they would follow us, or start to whine/cry, but they were so busy playing and running around that it was sad to see that they didn't even care.. but I was happy at the same time, knowing that they would not have a problem staying there. You have to understand that this was the first time they were away from home all night and I was a nervous mom. We didn't have to take their kennels, Cheryl has quite a few on hand, we took their food and some toys (which they didn't even need!).

When we went to pick them up it was nice to see them so excited to see us. They looked exhausted - as they were playing all morning - the excitement faded quick, as they continued playing. We were able to play with Taro and Kratos's father Jesse. What a handsome boy he is! He is about two (2) years old now, and he has filled out quite a bit since the last time we saw him which was about six (6) months ago. Unfortunately we didn't have our camera, we were unable to take pictures. They are going back this weekend though, for another sleep over, so we will try to remember to take the camera with us when we go to pick them up Sunday morning.
