    I mean, my dogs! I started by adopting the male on the left. Then learned that the female on the right was the last one of the litter. Well, I couldn't leave her by herself now could I! !!! Both of them rescued before they went to a shelter and I adopted them.

    Oh man- you have some trouble on your hands. I can see you alternating between frustrated and laughing your butt off all day.

    Good job rescuing- it makes a big difference!!

    ;lol Chaos has begun! Lots of fun watching them run, chase, wrestle, and wipe each other out when running and wrestling. ;lol Frustration, not yet. I am sure there will be some. But. Crate training is great! They said the mother was a lab mixed with a golden retriever. They have no idea who the father is, but thought there might be some shepherd in there somewhere. Who knows. You can see the longer face in the Chocolate male, a little more of the Golden look. The Black female has the shorter face, a little more of the Labrador look. They are doing great. We just got them last Friday. Being with each other means no whining from seperation anxiety, etc. They are sleeping great at night!

    I hate my dogs. They steal the attention of my sweetie.

    I can't compete with that level of cuteness.

    When they grow up a bit more, watch your woodpile. They'll start grabbing splits and dragging them around the yard!

    Make sure you have adequate "chewy" dog things, everywhere. If you don't give them something to chew on, they will find it themselves.

    Great rescue job.

    I really wrote Bon fire the first time, not Bomb fire!::P Those would not be very enjoyable. No need to be spilling beer. You see. We were right. You have to be able to edit things!

    Good job on the rescue. Let the fun begin. Labs are such great dogs. We have two running around our house. Crate training is good a way to keep the sanity in the house. Good luck.

    We had a couple of labs when I was a kid. Fell in love with the breed from a young age. They are adorable! Congrats!

    ;lol They are doing great guys. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement. Like I just said to another Hearth.com member. So much too chew on, so little time.
