    We finally broke our impasse.

    As I mentioned in another thread, my wife has been really pushing for a puppy, but I hesitated for quite some time because I am afraid the puppy will spook our cat George.

    Also my wife wanted a King Charles Cavalier and I wanted a Lab.

    I agreed to get the puppy, and my wife gave in to getting a Lab.

    We bought a chocolate lab called Aerial.

    In the picture below she is 4 weeks old, we pick her up around Dec. 10th. She is now in Kentucky.

    Puppies are very nice and a lot of fun. They also give the Stanley Steemer guy something to do!

    We won't get Ariel until around Dec. 22, instead of Dec. 10. Apparently, they made a mistake. Dec 10 would make her only 6 weeks, and she is supposed to be 8 weeks.

    Although I understand and agree with the reasoning the waiting is difficult. :eusa_whistle:

    In the meantime I have been researching how to deal with and train a puppy. We are also going to put her in classes in week 10.

    How fun.

    Congrats.

    Good idea on the classes. Also, start watching Dog Whisperer, or read some stuff from Cesar Milan and or the Monks of New Skete. Great stuff...easy and it works so well.

    Omg..you've never had a puppy!

    WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Labs are da bestest! It takes longer to potty train them than it does a human..and they don't wear diapers! You guys are gonna get a LOT of fresh air. About every 15 minutes or so!
