We picked up my friend SS Friday night, and he spent the night at my house. We talked a good bit, but I did give him plenty of time alone with Mabel, who is his goddaughter. They watched her Doctor Who DVD, played the piano and did a lot of laughing.
Saturday morning got fairly frenetic. The puppy hunt took on a whole new path as we found out someone we knew fairly well had a litter of Lab pups ready to go. There was lots of phone calling going on, in between entertaining SS, dropping him off at his mother's house and getting Mabel to gymnastics.
Saturday afternoon we went out to our friends house to see the Lab puppies. Holy cow. So freakin' adorable, we love in love instantly. And to make the deal even sweeter, our friend was only charging $50 for a pup. The only yellow female was already claimed (boo hoo!), so we got a yellow boy. Then my mother, who came along, decided she wanted the other female in the litter, which is black. So we wound up leaving with two puppies!
This is Bruno. He is a yellow Lab but was the darkest of the litter. In fact, he had some reddish-ginger tones to his coat, and we can't wait to see how his color develops as he ages.
