Libertie Belle Has arrived



On Saturday afternoon Aiden’s breeder arrived with his litter mate, we have named Libertie Belle or Libby for short. Libby is a very petite girl, very slender for a lab. She is the colour of vanilla ice cream with carmel mixed into different spots like her ears, the lower part of her bum, and somewhat on her back. She has a pink nose and light brown pigments around her eyes and mouth (I think). Libby is so different looking from her brother who is dark caramel in colour, very tall, long and thick. They get along beautifully though, she doesn’t allow him to push her around and he doesn’t protest when she wrestles him to the ground.

Libby has been with us for just over 24 hours now and seems to already be settling into the group. She doesn’t bother the older ones and she understands that enough is enough when Aiden climbs up onto the couch or under the desk for a nap. It is so cute to watch Aiden and Libby play together and I am sure after a while the others will begin to join in on the fun.

For now we are working on leash manners and not jumping up on people, but soon we will move on to learning some of the basic obedience commands such as “down” and “stay”. She already seems to know “sit” and “come” but they too will need to be worked on in order to make sure we can firmly trust that she knows them. Even though it has only been a short time since she arrived I can already tell that she will be a good student and with her high desire to please I think she will be very successful and a wonderful companion for us.
