Hi there. I was just looking for answers to some puppy questions when I stumbled onto this site. I thought it would be really fun to meet new friends that may have answers to my many, many questions! You see, not only am I new to the site but, this is also my first time having a puppy as well! He's a 12 week old Black Lab named Cooper. I love him to death...he's so smart! Anyway, I can't wait to meet some of you! Have a great day!
P.S. First question....how do I show you a pic of Cooper?? :o

Welcome BecknCoop , I'm also still pretty new to this site too. But everyone has been very friendly and helpful :goodvibes:! Congrats on your new puppy.:) Aren't dogs just the greatest thing ever :lovestruck:!!!
Sorry i can not help about the pictures. I have to go thru Photobucket to post mine on here. and I'm not the greatest person to give directons.
Can't wait to see pics though of your puppy.

WOO HOO!! you brought up pics before any of us had to hound you for them!! (haha pun intended :laughing:)
you have to post afew more times before you can post pictures. yhou can try photobucket or something like that if you want.
lots of really great puppy advice floating around here. to start with, obedience training. we never did it and REALLY wished we had. socialize him a bunch, makes for a well behaved pup later. talk around about some good dog foods!! most of them are real garbage. we feed raw or homemade-ish stuff cause my dog has allergies. uh.... really save up your patience cause youre gonna need them. kennel train, its healthier for your dog, your sanity and your furniture. did i mention patience?? lots of it!!!! also, remember, most, no all of these issues you are about to come up against WILL WORK ITSELF OUT with love, time, patience, training, good food and positive reinforcement. all the keys you need to raising a healthy happy puppy.
i just cant wait to see some pics!! we also have a lab (mix but mostly lab!!)

SUPER CUTE !!!! Got some Oh and Aaah sounds from me too :D :lovestruck:

What a cutie!!
Sheeba is now 4 months old. I think she's part Lab. Her mom is Belle, the red Golden we rescued at the end of her pregnancy.
Sheeba was mostly black when she was born, except for the little white patch on her chest. Now, she's totally changed colors. When she's in the sun, her mom's red/gold color is at the tip of her fur. And she has a white streak on the underside of her tail, and her rear leg feathering is somewhere between white/blonde color, like she sat in something. :laughing:
Puppies are sure fun and I already miss Sheeba at the 10 week old stage. They grow up so darn fast!
