It seems like only yesterday that the newest member of our family came home to live with us. We had discussed getting a dog for some time yet was not sure when or what breed we would choose. Vincent was fonder of smaller dogs, yet I loved the big ones. I honestly think he was afraid that I would eventually make good on my desire for a wolf pup so he suggested we go and look at some yellow lab pups one day back in April.
Being a breeder of labs earlier in my life I knew they were good dogs and knew if I saw them I would be in love immediately. Of course I was right and we brought Winston home that day. A beautiful little 7 week old yellow lab pup. He is the lighter blonde so when he was little he was almost snow white. As he has grown he has gotten a little more blonder in spots yet still he has that striking light yellow coat.
Today Winston turned 6 months old. I have to say he is the best dog I have ever had the pleasure of sharing part of my life with. I know that labs are an extremely smart breed yet Winston was potty trained in a matter of 3 weeks from the time he came home. He took to crate training wonderfully. Honestly I think he thinks of his crate as his bedroom. We have started to let him stay out at night as he is getting bigger. He still crawls in the open doored crate each evening and spends at least some time there. His monkey is still with him although his arms and legs are no longer. I have had to sew a couple heart patches on his other pal "Adolf" who he likes to chew feriously.
Winston is fast becoming a good friend and a constant buddy. This evening to celebrate his half year mark I am making him his own doggy meringues. He loves mine yet I think the sugar may not be as good for him so I perfected a recipe using beef boullin and he loves it.... I always swore I would never get so ridiculous with any animal... I guess we should watch those things we say we will never do... Life can be longer than we expect sometimes.... Blessings
