The puppies are 6 1/2 weeks and are starting to get really quick. We find ourselves constantly counting to 9! They have also outgrown their whelping collars. The kids are very good at telling them apart, so if there is ever a question, I ask them. Their coloring and size varies just enough that there is some distinction.

It was a beautiful night to play with puppies and play in the water!
The two girls on the left and the little boy on the right are three of JJ and Robyn's kids. The two in the middle are our girls. When one of the dogs has puppies, these kids spend LOTS of time together! Lots of bike rides between the two houses take place!

We are really trying to treasure our last couple weeks with the puppies. This is the point, where I have to remind our kids that we can't get too attached! They are begin to develop their own personalities and they become increasingly more fun! They are starting to let out little barks and growls, which the kids think is hilarious. They are also chewing and tugging, and pouncing and doing all the cute puppy things. Labs are such social dogs, and you can tell that when they are puppies already. I saw this on Facebook last night, and thought they are all so true and such good reminders! Because labs are such social dogs, they can often take SO much time and energy. Many of you already know that because you have already owned a lab. Therefore, you also know that the time and energy labs take, is so, so worth it!!!!
