Lab Puppy

My friend, Carol, got a new lab puppy just before Christmas. He flew in from Dallas, Texas. He comes from excellent performance lines which is very important because Carol trains and competes in obedience, agility, and field trials.

Katie, with her excellent social skills, shared some of her wisdom with the little Comet.

On a side note, this is also an excellent picture illustrating Katie's neurological weakness from the Fibrocartilaginous Emboli. The left hind leg just does not provide 100% support like it used to therefore her rear swings left and even when walking her spine is usually curved with the rear traveling left.

"Look, I am playing with the puppy."

"OK, I'm done playing with the puppy."

"Don't come any closer."

"Don't touch that."

"Mom, are you going to help me here?"

"Seriously, I have had enough of you."

Don't worry... no puppies were harmed. Katie is awesome. :-)
