The Puppies First Water Experience

Our Lab puppy River outside enjoying the sunshineWe have been having such a wonderful time with this litter! The puppies are growing by leaps and bounds. We have enjoyed training the puppies outside with such beautiful weather here in Pittsburgh. Recently, there have been very few rainy days and tons of warm sunshine. I am entering my 3rd trimester for this pregnancy, and I have had a ton of energy... Praise God! As a result, our days have been very full.
Over the weekend we visited Mingo Creek County Park to  allow the puppies to experience the thrill of the water. They took to it like a... well, like a Lab to the water! It was love at first sight. Each of them romped and splashed until they were so exhausted that they fell fast asleep in the playpen that we brought to the park. After all of the that play, they had the longest stretch of sleep that we have witnessed since they were tiny little pups. We tried to take a lot of pictures and video to document all of the fun that you can watch below.
Children LOVE Labradors! This is our guy Clay with one of his many fans.The training has been going smoothly, and this litter seems to follow in typical Labrador fashion, because they are extremely smart and eager to please. They have been enjoying a wide variety of social experiences as well. We have introduced them to cats, other dogs, rabbits, babies, the elderly, and just about every child living within a 1 mile radius. They are the hit of summer break with the kids in our neighborhood. I am confident that these puppies have been loved on, cuddled, and adored by children more than any other group of pups in the entire world.
These puppies are such a blessing to us, and I know that they will be an indescribable gift in the lives of their new families as well. It is hard to imagine that we will only have them in our care for 1 final week. For us, things are drawing to an end with our time together, and yet for the puppies this is just the start of a fabulous lifelong journey with loving humans, companions, and friends. They are just about ready to begin that amazing adventure with their new families!

Dear Joy, i am eagerly awaiting news of the your new bundle. You have been in my thoughts daily. Take care of you! Jasper is the love of my life! He is beautiful, and turns heads everywhere we go. He is also a clown...a very SMART clown. He always has to have a stick on walks or just to play with. Actually, it is a stick or a part of a TREE. he walks with it very proudly in his mouth, causes quite a bit of laughter! After we play fetch, he runs directly to the large fountain, and jumps in the water to play, "I am a submarine." He does the funniest things...he also has a pounce position that he gets into whenever he wants to play. He truly thinks no one can see him when he is in this position. He is well trained, loves the beach, and is always polite wherever we go. At the moment, he is sleeping on his back on the bed, wtih all four feet in the air...ah, my modest puppy! I am so grateful for all that you did to raise this wonderful boy. He is amazing and just gorgeous. I wish that you could see him. Good luck with the new family member. Love, Vicki
