My names Jess, I'm 15 years old and live in derbyshire!
I havn't actually got a labrador...I'm getting one in the summer!! YAY!! So I thought I'd join this to see if I could get any tips for when I do!!!
We havn't got one booked yet no because were still looking into the breeders. Me and my mum did think about a rescue dog but because we Have a cat, Monty, we thought it would be best to get a puppy like some of our friends did.
I bet you are very excited about getting your puppy in the summer, i know we were. However, get ready for it to change your life! On a positive note your puppy will create many amusing hours of fun- playing, eating, sleeping, playing, sleeping, eating!
Now for the reality- they can be sick wherever they like- normally on something you like very much! They will wake you up very early especially on the days you want a lie in. Make sure you catch up on sleep now.
On a serious note, your lab will be a friend for life and will always look afetr you and eat anything you give it- you will no longer need a kitchen bin!! Let us know of any questions you may have as our choc lab is now 11 months old and we will be able to offer lots of advice!xxxxx
I have an 8 month old choccy lab called cookie, best thing i ever bought shes great company, and so friendly, well when shes not tripping me up and stealing my socks and tea towels. but i love her to bits.
Hope you will be as happy as me,
Just watch what they eat as cookie likes the kitchen bin when she gets bored
