May 24, 2014  Hi, I'm Linda and I had this great idea to train and raise labs for my retirement fun.  This is my very first web site experience and my very first blog. They always say there needs to be a first before their can be a second. Brilliant! Anyway so far this has been a wonderful experience and looking forward to having fun with my labs.

Busy times...

Today has flown by and I am taking a few minutes to blog before feeding and going to bed.  I know that tomorrow is going to be a busy day and I'm sure that I won't have much time to write. Took Belle Starr in yesterday to the vet, again, and they put her on antibiotics so as we can get her well and get some weight on her.  It was a scary day for us and hope that she bounces back fast. Belle Starr has lost weight and as we looked at Abie he gained a lot of weight.  Always around when we feed Belle Starr ( which has been many smaller meals) and he gets a treat.  Now if we could put the weight back on her that would be good.  The puppies are becoming independent and personalities are blooming.  They are falling into a routine which is very helpful.  My days go by fast and for fun I think tomorrow I will write down what I do in a day at Happy Labs Kennel. Last week I arranged their room,  this week they arrange their room.  I'll look in there and the pee pad is in the kennel, bed covers are drug off the bed, and toys scattered everywhere.  Reminds me of the good ole days with my children.  With Belle Starr on all that medicine she can't nurse any more.  Wish  there was something we could do to help with less milk production.  I know, this shall pass too, but not fun in the meantime.  It's time for this tired lady to finish her day and get some rest.
