Matthew Monday: Puppy Announcement

Ever since our beloved Yellow Lab, Brandi, passed on in December (see here and here), we’ve been waiting for the right time to get a new dog. 

Well, that time has come.  We’ve put down a deposit on a female Black Labrador Retriever pup from a breeder in northern New Jersey, called Lynnwood Retrievers.  Our pup was born on August 12th, and if you search around the website you’ll find she came from a litter of twelve, eleven black and one yellow.  Here’s the page on the litter with the parents.

We let Matthew pick out a name, and to our surprise he picked “Rosie.”  I guess it’s a good name for a dog, though it sounds a bit too human.  I think it came from a cartoon he watches, Peppa Pig.  I guess there’s a character in there that’s named Rosie.  So Rosie it is!

Here are a few pictures of the litter the breeder sent us.  Of course we don’t know which pup is ours.






We pick her up on Sunday!
