Today marks 7 weeks! One more week and we start saying goodbye. Personally, I’m not looking forward to this. I will miss them. I’ve gotten to know each of these incredible puppies and their unique personalities. What will their lives be like ahead?
All of the puppies have new names selected by their new owners. Everyone has begun to make plans to bring these incredible puppies home soon.
Just to name a few… Loki. He is such a gentle soul. We love him. He comes to us in the whelping box and appears to know we will hold him. He just loves to snuggle into our arms.
Sully (once a Harley, always a Harley). He is a calm adventurer and is always curious. Such a sweet dog!
Widget (Pink) loves people! Isn’t that a great name? She is such a nice girl who seems to always be smiling.
Bailey is the small chocolate lab female. She is cute as heck and very sweet. But, she is our resident terrorist! She is several pounds lighter than the other puppies, but can kick all of the other puppies’ butts. And frequently does! I love Bailey and look forward to watching her grow up!
Orange or should I say Miss Cali– is a very playful lab puppy. This girl has spunk! With us, very affectionate.
Ollie Gator– what a funny name! I love it! When he sees us, he comes quickly for the scratch behind the ears or on his belly. Ollie has the white collar and if you remember, he is the adorable puppy who gave Beth the Puppy Hickey!
Little Red is now Berkley. She was the first born and at the time was the runt of the litter. That changed quickly. She has a sweet personality and a little pep in her step.
Quail Meadow Labs selected our beautiful male chocolate lab, Purple, aka Prince. He is such a nice sweet lab puppy and will sure enjoy his life ahead! They also selected Miss Green- one of our most loving and cuddling pups! She will surely be missed.
And if you are wondering how it was possible to get nine lab puppies to be still for a moment to take that incredible photo. It was not easy! One person on each side of the bench, to catch one if they fell off. Two in front to make stupid noises and wave their hands. And most important, an incredible photographer, (Close Encounters of the Furry Kind) that was able to take hundreds of photos to capture the moment!
One more thing.. many of these incredible puppies have had their photos selected for the 2020 Calendars! So if you see adorable lab puppy calendars, it very well could be from this amazing litter.
