Hi Gang
Time for a Abby update. She was at the Vets Saturday for her shots and she weighs 22.2 pounds. Vet says she looks great. Took her straight from the vets to our summer house near Lake Michigan in Northern Michigan. Decided to take the dogs down to the Lake, short one block walk and see what she thought of the big Lake. Threw the tennis ball for Lilly into the lake and Abby went right in after Lilly. After about 2 seconds it was like Dad what is this stuff Im in, she came out and didn't want any part of the water again. Took her back home got her dried off and took her for a short walk, got back home and there was a leaf pile and that nut thought it would be great fun to roll in the leaves. She has started puppy class and is sitting and staying on command. Just started doing downs, will do them with a treat but not without one yet, little worried about that one that yet but she is still real young. Sleeping through the night for the most part. Potty training was going great but had a few set backs this week, no poop in the house but she has just stopped playing and got up and peeded without any warning.

Mike

My girl is iffy with water, but thrilled to pound through piles of leaves, so I could imagine Abby trotting out of the water exactly She's such a doll too - love the pictures!

Hoping for no more setbacks

Looks and sounds like Abby is enjoying herself. She is getting big already. They grow too fast!! Sorry for the setbacks in potty training. Lilly looks like she had a great time in the lake. Thanks for sharing pics!!

Lovely pictures of Abby, love the one of her with Lilly, so precious.

Maybe the set back with the potting training is due to change in environment and excitement of it all, sure it's just temporary.

Have a great time at the Lake, looks beautiful.

Hi Gang
Abby just came back from the vet for her shots, she weighs 28.5 pounds. Vet says she looks great. I have a lot of people comment on how nice looking she is, but IMOP all Golden puppy's are cute as can be. She is starting to want to cuddle on the couch and in the chair. If I could only get her to sleep in a little longer in the am.

Mike

She's a doll...sure looks zonked out in that last photograph. The small waves may have been a bit of a deterrent...my bet would be a time will come when you can't keep her out of the water! Glad to hear she's doing so well.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
