Today we gave Tanner a bath outside on the lawn. He was so funny both before and after. Before he mad his "medical" face (scrunches up his lips and shows his teeth) and did not want to come - he knew what we were going to do. During bath he just stood there though like a good boy. Then right after he took off running like crazy. I brought out his soccer ball and he chased and chased for a few minutes. So he got his exercise today!

Took Nicki to the dog park and played fetch, she swam and ran with all the puppies! She met a boxer pup named Axle and they are about the same age and went crazy with the playing!

On Friday my husband, Tanner and I went on a 2.3 mile hike. I'm afraid it was a little toomuch for Tanner - he was favoring his "surgery" leg later on and he's been fairly quiet the past 2 days. No more than a mile for him once in a while from now on. emoticon

Just heading out for a walk in the woods by the zoo -- also known as Squirrel City -- with my lab. The Weimaraner won't get out of bed for this walk but that's okay. It gives Molly and I some good bonding time.

Tanner's 10th birthday was last Sunday. We gave him a new Yankee collar and a soccer ball. My husband let a little bit of the air out of it so Tanner could pick it up. He's a wacko with it - we kick it and he chases it and chases it like he was a young pup! He reminds us of our 1st lab Cadbury who loved soccer balls too:) Unfortunately Tanner doesn't walk/run with me on the track - after the surgery to his right rear let almost 2 years ago I don't want him to strain it. We do take him on leisurely hikes though. emoticon

Molly and I walked for nearly an hour. She splashed in the water, hunted mice in the field and relocated the ducks and geese whenever she could. A bonus was to meet another dog. She always seems to enjoy that.

We walked outside in the warm morning sun today. Toby got tired and I wasn't sure he was going to make it back home. Poor thing. I need to bring water bottles for him now that it's getting warm again. He's got that thick Lab coat that I sometimes forget about. Love this boy!

Went to the dog park and walked for 30 minutes yesterday. But there wasn't anyone else there. Hoping today we'll see some friends for him to play with. He's so sociable!

Yesterday we walked a 45 minute walk in the morning and a 75 minute walk around the marsh at noon. That was nice -- some shade, no bugs -- except it was hard to keep the lab out of the marshy water.

I went for a two mile walk with my oldest yesterday (left the pups at home so she can get a little quality time with mom.) Half way through, six deer crossed our path. She started to give chase, but came back when I called her. Gave her some lovin' then reminded her that even in her prime (she's seven) she couldn't take on six deer! Planned to walk every day this week while I am off of work and of course it rained all day.

A setback is just a setup for a comeback.

I played ball with Kaysia tonight. She loves it when I throw it so she can catch it. I also signed her up for obedience school and she begins Monday night. I'm so excited! Tomorrow she is going to doggy daycare as I have to take my other dog to an animal hospital 2 hrs away from where I live. She is having her cancer restaged. For some reason Kaysia likes to grab clothes or jackets. One time I left the room for 5 min and came back and she had chewed my zipper off of my favorite jacket.

My lab Maggie and I just got back from our morning walk. We did not take the Weimaraner Charlie since he wasn't getting off the couch (it is a cold morning). Maggie got to make some snow angels which is one of her favorite winter activities.

When we allowed the dogs on the bed, Lola would have to sleep touching me also. I'm not sure if she was trying to get me off of the bed though so she would have alot of room. The dogs have been shedding really bad so we've started to not allow them on most of the furniture. I'm surprised how quick they learn. I know they r not happy with the changes, but it makes for alot less work for me.

Hi everyone, I am one of those crazy Lab Lovers ! Henry is my 1.5 year old yellow Lab, Smartest dog I've ever had ! and the most loyal and affectionate too. he is learning to go and get different things I ask him to get for me. I can ask him to get his ball, or stick or chewy and mix it up and put them in different area's of the yard or house. If he gets confused I just point my finger and he goes in that direction ! he blows my mind !

I needed a personal trainer so I bought Henry, and now he is the best buddie I have ever had too ! He sleeps right beside me, he has to be touching me when we sleep so he snuggles up close and he will put his paw in my hand, he is the sweetest Lab

Happy Monday ! Elaine

Beckyanne1 - Lola seems to be a bit like our Tanner - yesterday we were gone 2 separate stretches of time and Tanner decided he was going to chew up a pencil. He'll chew up towels if they are available though - that's why I had to start putting away my kitchen ones! They just miss us and I think they want to punish us a bit for leaving them!

I pretty much have to. Beanie throws dog toys at me if I don't pay enough attention to her. She's always ready to play!

Lola was up to her old tricks this week. While I was in the bathroom, she took the kitchen towel and chewed the end up. She got into trouble for that. Not sure if she understood what she did though. Like my kids, it probably went in one ear and out the other.

The dogs have been getting daily walks thanks to me. They love their time with mom. We have a sheet on the couch, but not on the back and it seems like the fur just sticks terrible to the couch. I've just reached a point where this shedding is getting to me. Not so much Lola, but Abbey has been shedding so bad. Every season it seems to get worse. Even the cat is shedding more than usual.

One of our labs sleeps on the bed (but not the couch) and one doesn't.....I have "dog sheets" and put one on before Tanner gets on the bed so as not to get the hair everywhere, especially since I have dog allergies! It works really well and doesn't get your own blankets, sheets and pillows all hairy and dirty. I change the dog sheet every other day.

Lola is back to her old tricks. She ate a chunk out of a hand towel yesterday. She's such a brat. Hasn't done that for a long time. I think she's doing that because we now keep our bedroom door closed during the day and she can't sit on it and look outside. We're trying to break the dogs from sleeping on the bed. I'm really tired of all of the dog fur on everything. It's been really bad because Abbey has been shedding terrible. Lola isn't quite as bad. I can't favor one so they both have to stay off. Next will be the couch. I want to get new furniture and I'm not going to want them on it.

My lab stops eating every once in a while. She is very healthy, but apparently is a very picky eater. We have to switch her food every once in a while and she will start eating again. She also does this when she is given too many treats or table food...it's her way of revolting. You could try giving her different food, and see how this goes.

I am not real sure what is going on with one of our black labs, Burt. He really does not seem too interested in eating lately, which is not like him at all. At meal time he would just as soon follow me around while I am feeding all 3 labs and getting them fresh water etc. He is still full of energy and likes to be petted but most mornings, just not eating. I guess he will eat when he gets hungry. The only problem is Ellie, his mother, eats his food when he is walking be out of the kennel. Any thoughts on this?

Henry is getting so big!

My poor babies have been neglected since my surgery. I am not able to walk them, so they don't get the walks they need.

Henry was so excited to get back out on the road for a morning walk. We had a wonderful walk this morning and even though I am really not supposed to at this point I couldn't help but to jog two short stints of the walk. emoticon I really miss the morning jogs I used to take. As I strengthen my lower back I am hopeful that I will, over time, be able to return to running. Henry loved it to.

Spending the early morning hours of the day outside walking with Henry and God, a wonderful way to start off.

Sounds like a wonderful walk. I can almost see the picture you were painting with the mist coming up from the ground. Nice image.

Just got back from a morning walk with Henry dog. It was a beautiful morning for a walk, nice and cool. The sunrise was wonderful over the fields with the mist coming up from the ground! I love hearing the sounds of the morning and Henry loves the smells. emoticon

My husband and I walked the 3 labs last night in between the rain storms. We went down the hill, into the woods and to the dogs swimming hole. The 2 males got in right away, but the older female hung back for a while before joining them. It has been so dry that the only water in there was from the rain yesterday afternoon so it wasn't very deep so none of them stayed long. We just got them home, in the kennel, and fed before it started raining again.

Henry got so excited this morning when he saw me getting ready to go for our walk. I thought he was going to knock the couch over when I picked up the leash, lol. He really looks forward to our walks now and that keeps me motivated to keep getting out there. He is the greatest walking partner.

Be careful out there today with our beloved four legged friends. 6AM EST and it is already super muggy and warm. Thank the good Lord for the breeze that was blowing on us as we walked. Stay cool and stay hydrated.

I'm glad I looked in here today, I haven't been taking Stryder out enough lately because I've been hot and tired.(Probably why he is stealing more food in the house) Your stories remind me I have to get him out more, so going for a good walk now!
Have a great day

Henry is really starting to look forward to our walks. He get all excited when he sees me change into my walking clothes and put on my walking shoes. Then when he sees me pick up the leash he starts dancing around the house. Amazing sun rise this morning but it is going to be a scorcher today, it was already getting very muggy by the time we got back to the house. Keep our four legged buddies cool. Have a great day.
