We had a choice of the last two girls from the litter. This little lady won my heart. Really tough thing to decide. One of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in a while!
Beautiful wee things all 8 of them and it was lovely to meet their mum and dad. Dad – the chocolate lab is an amazing dog. Mum was a bit shy and perhaps a bit “who are you all coming to see my babies?” but had a very graceful way about her.
I’ve come across a couple of sets on flickr from other larbradingers – who look quite a lot like Elsie – you can’t see it on this shot but she’s got a pretty white flash on her neck – have a look at these : Clyde | Ella
A heck of a treck – nearly 3 hours (in a car which had a broken stereo) then a puppy pit stop then back again to a slow cook coq o van type thing I’d had brewing all day.
Splendid weekend – this was the highlight as far as family life goes but we did have a lovely Saturday tea with friends where I cooked a super doop roast.
