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!
