      Meet Mayson!!!

      My Husband and I knew we wanted to get a Yellow Lab puppy to join our family with Murphy. We've been looking on an off for about 6 months. We would prefer to adopt, but after volunteering at a local shelter for the past 2-3 years, I know that Yellow Lab puppies don't come thru the shelter that often! I've been researching breeders on and off, but again, we prefer to adopt. But there I am at work last Thursday, decided to check the shelter website, and there he was. I texted a picture of him to my husband and he said let's get him! So I leave work at 3p on Thursday, go visit him and of course that's all it takes. We put a hold on him and went and got him on Friday.

      So.....here's Mayson!!!!





      He's 8 weeks old, came from a litter of 4. When we adopted Murphy, he was 12 weeks and was picked up as a stray. OM MY, the differences in these pups!!! Mayson is real skinny, can see his ribs, so we are working on fattening him up so to speak.

      I read thru the Samson and Asher thread about having a second dogs so we are working thru that. Giving Murphy lots of love and lots of playtime with one of us. Murphy is a bit growly and barky with Mayson in his face, but at the same time I think he is very curious about the puppy.

      So, even though we've been thru this before, it's still feels new. Expect to see my questions in the puppy section...

      Congratulations! He is super cute; kinda has a James Dean thing going on. What do you think he is mixed with? Did you meet the mom?

      Didn't get to meet the mom, he was transferred in from another shelter. They thought the parents were a mix of yellow lab and schnauzer (??? Really???) One of the other litter mates looked very much like him, the other two were much smaller and had what I thought was Beagle coloring. You don't always know what you are really getting when adopting from a shelter. When we got Murphy, we thought he was Black lab, now I would call him a mix between Lab, Shepherd, and Border Collie. So, I just hang on for the ride and fill him full of love!!!
