I have noticed over the last little while that it has been puppy fever here in the hive.
If you have recently gotten a pup – who is he/she doing?
We have now had Maverick our black lab mix for 5 weeks (Whoa – I had to check my calender and I can’t believe it’s already been 5 weeks). He was 11 weeks when we got him and so he is turning 16 weeks this week.
He is growing like a weed and has already put on 10lbs – I know it’s good but I can’t help but want him to stay small.
He has ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘down’ and ‘come’ down pat and we are now working on ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’ and ‘heel’. I am not going to lie but heel is frustrating me a little right now – we have been doing it since day 1 and he just isn’t getting it. He is such a good little guy though, he was potty trained when we got him, he loves ALL people and kids and he was comfortable around all dogs at the dog park within a week.
How are all you other puppy owners doing? How are the pups doing? And of course I want to see pictures ;-).
And even if your pup is all grown up post some puppy pics and we will overload this thread with cuteness.

@FMM: Oh my goodness….My parent’s “family dog” is a black lab named Maverick!!! It takes me back to his little guy days. He’s a big boy now at 7 years old, but he was such a cutie when he was a pup. He’s a cutie now, just in a big dog sort of way. lol

He is absolutely adorable! FI’s parents have had labs since FI and his brothers were kids. They are, in my opinion, the best dogs out there. We’ll be getting a chocolate lab when we’re to the point where we can work from home.

Oh My God…CUTENESS!!!
When I get home I’ll post some pics of my parents’ yellow lab when she was a pup. I was still living with them when she was just a little bitty thing and I took a ton of photos.

@troubled:, @CatyLady:, @FutureMrsChaney: Thanks Guys – he truly is too cute for words – the problem is he knows it 😉
@JsDragonfly: Awe that’s too cute! I love it! Did they get the name from Top Gun? We haven’t met another Maverick yet. We have heard there is a husky that goes to our dog park named Maverick but haven’t met him yet!
@UpstateCait: Labs are great dogs. This is our first experience with them and he truly is a pleasure. And so quiet – our last dog was a mouthy yorkie and it’s so weird to have a dog that is so quiet. I have never heard him growl and he barks very infrequently.
@linguo42: Can’t wait to see your pics
@muckmoo1: They are so beautiful – I love the bounding pic! And bella has gorgeous face markings!

Maui is now just over 5 months (French Bulldog). She is bigger than the pic in the sink, but that was only a few weeks ago. She was the runt of the litter, but is growing fast now!
