Sophie - Yellow Labrador

Sophie is our 10 month old yellow lab we adopted from a breeder in Langley, BC. She is very light in color and is on the smaller side like her Mom. She is very active, smart and loveable. She has taken puppy kindergarten and is now in basic obedience with 2 more classes left.
She lost her older sister Shelby a beautiful Golden on June 2/12 at 13 1/2 years old. We all miss her dearly.
Sophie will be getting a new little golden girl (Maggie) on December 1/12 as her new playmate. We're all very excited.

Love the pictures!

Sorry to hear about Shelby, and know exactly how you feel. I found this site when my senior rescue Finn was sick, he has since past. We have a 7 month old boy Bogey now, and are adding a Leonberger to the mix next week. Minus all the hair and added laundry we are enjoying and excited about having the young energetic dogs back in the house. It also help off set missing our boy Finn.

Congrats! You must be getting a Fyke puppy?

Maybe we'll see you around! I'm in Langley.

Yes, Maggie is a Fyke puppy. We were so happy with Shelby that we decided to go with Karen Fyke again.

My husband and I took a while to decide to get another one, so by the time we got in touch with Karen 4 females were already spoken for and the pups weren't even born yet. We looked around for other breeders, but decided to take a chance with Karen's female (Libby) having 5 girls. So we contacted her and now we were number 5 on the list. What are the chances of Libby having 5 girls? Well she did; 5 girls and 3 boys. Wow, we were very lucky.

Sophie our little lab is from a Breeder in Langley.

That's awesome that you snuck in just in time! Do you know who the sire and dam are? I'm sure she'll have some relatives on here.

We were number 8 on the list and thought we'd have to wait a while but then the dam had 8 boys! Since there were only 7 people who wanted a male we snagged the last one!
