And it feels like it! We got baby chocolate lab girl, Ellie Claire, on Saturday. She will be 8 weeks old tomorrow. She weighed 7.3 pounds on Saturday. We got her from a guy who had both mom and dad. They were super friendly and in fine shape. Ellie, however, had a horrid flea infestation. We drove directly to the vet clinic and Ken bathed her and combed hundreds of fleas off of her. I feel so bad for her, but so glad we got her out of there. She has some bald spots from the dermatitis. I was worried that she was going to be sick or anemic, but she is eating great. Sleeping a lot and having two or three wild and crazy play times where she is all teeth and baby fat tearing around the house. So, she’s doing great.
Ha. That’s the first time I have “captioned” a picture. She is a very happy girl and I can only imagine how much her energy will increase in the coming weeks. She is learning so fast that after naptime (and about every half hour) we go outside to pee. Well, we go outside, she pees. So smart!
It didn’t scare her, though, she was right back trying to get at that water.
She plays and plays and plays and then gets sooooo tired.
