Day Two...

Day two of "Daphne" ownership.

I have never really been a dog person. Cats are more my style... I think it has something to do with the likenesses in our personalities! :) When we got Yogi during the summer I wasn't sure how it was going to go, but I love him and everyone knows he is MY dog. Well, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I decided we would get Yogi a friend. Daphne is very cute (and I'm sure that is what I was thinking), but she is very much a lab. So far she has been in our family for 24 hours and has managed to desecrate my bedroom floor with her bowels, jump on every surface in the house, and scare sweet little Yogi. So much for Yogi having a friend! I forgot how hyper labs were and how much their tails hurt! Daphne is very happy and therefore her abusive tail is always wagging. I foresee her being an outside dog (only) in a few days. I got up this morning and took the dogs for a walk. Daphne was literally dragging me along, while Yogi was moving quite slowly. I came inside and told Robert that he was going to have to walk the dog or I was going to have to wear running shoes... hmmm... maybe this is a sign!

We had 2 labs when we lived in Hamilton. There is not another dog on the planet that will tear things up, chew, and jump MORE than a lab! Bless your heart!

But they sure are sweet!!
