At the beginning of February, we were able to bring home our new black lab. Mike's brother, Matt, has two labs, one black and one white. He told Noah two years ago that when they had puppies, he would get the first pick. So in Dec. when they had 10 puppies, Noah made sure he was on the list to get one. Uncle Matt saved the only black male for Noah, and he was eccstatic. After several times visiting Spike, we were finally able to bring him home. We are still trying to train him, but he is being stubborn. But he is really lovable, and just wants to sit in my lap. Which is going to get harder, the bigger he gets.
