Congrat's on the addition to the family!!! My number one tip is to buy a crate to house your new friend when your not home or need to have a time out!! Safety first!!!

Thanks a ton. We have the crate already. She dosen't like going in, but after awhile she calms down. It's really quite a shame she's so ussed to being in it.

Congrats on your new family member. Try making the crate a fun place to go. We put a blanket or sheet over the top, cozy cushions.. a peanut butter filled kong or bone to chew on.. or I give them a treat for going into it when I ask... then not as much now.. that they have gotten that trick down.. do a search on this site, for training, feeding, crating.. and such.. a wealth of knowledge and ideas will pop up.. if you have specific issues.. type on in.. and ask away.. we love to help!! Welcome to the lab family!! Heather

Welcome Jessica and baby,

Take lots and lots and lots of pictures. They grow up really fast.

I'm (so people tell me) still looking very good for my vintage (all me own - mostly brown - hair, and my original teeth!!) - As a 1956 model I'm still quite sporty, but the bodywork has seen better days, the piston rings are a bit worn and the paint job is a little dull!!.
