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!


  1. Jan, owner of Ruby, another "human" name :-pSeptember 29, 2014 at 11:03 AM

    Rosie is a great name!

    1. Yes Jan Rosie is a great name but what happens if the litter owner gives Manny a male pup?...

      Just kidding Manny! LOL :)

      God Bless

  2. Wonder who did all the leg work ?
