Oh god I think my heart may have burst from my chest I "awww'ed" so loud. The neighbors may reported the shrills of a dying animal coming from my house, i better prepare for the cops. but this is an adorable puppy. I need to go love all over my puppy now and tell him that he's cute too so he doesn't get jealous. Your puppies will always try to eat you. Because despite what many will want you to belive is simple teething is the beginnings of a craving for human flesh. You must prepare and buy a TON of puppy chew toys (plastic not plush) and bones. So many that they will rain down from the heavens. Therefore the puppy will crave these items and not your sensitive human flesh. My corgi has not yet been fully brought away from the need for flesh since he continues to nom on my feet all night. But he is learning. And your adorable pup will too!
Ah, I remeber when I first got my dog. Don't worry Rob. You'll have years to pull your hair and possibly burst a few blood vessels before your dog becomes boring : ) xD You should keep your drawings and other important stuff that is not but looks edible in a puppy's eyes locked away on a safe. Somewhere high. Puppies are insistent. Also, my dog had a particular interest in gnawing at speakers and or all things that would likely piss me off. Just for heads up : )
I hope you like the crazy puppy stage... 'cos I've never met a lab that grew out of it. Well, maybe one, but that's one out of the thousands I've met at my job (doggy day camp!). Still, gotta love labs. Big fluff balls of pure insanity!
