Hi gang, My wife and I are childless and after a lot of talk and research we have gone with a Labrador puppy. Her name is Gemma, she is 10 weeks old and has turned our home and lives upside down. We love her being in our lives and are striving to make her a smart, stimulated and lucky dog. I spoil her rotten, and we are teaching her as much as possible. I grew up with mongrels, most kelpie X dogs. She is my first indoor/outdoor dog so it's a big learning curve for me. I will be reading more than talking for the next couple of months. Thanks for letting me join up!
