Introducing the newest member of the family........

I've been very slack in not sharing this news sooner.....meet Kelly, the newest member of our family.  Kelly is a black Labrador Retreiver, and she is a real delight. We thought it was about time the girls had a pet dog, as even though the 5 farm dogs we have are all very friendly, they can't live at the house, and the girls don't get to care for them regularly as they do for Kelly.  We picked her up at the end of June, when she was six weeks old.  She is now thirteen weeks old and has tripled in size from these early photos.
She is heaps of fun, a very busy girl, although is tending to be a bit nippy at the moment when she is excited, but I think she will grow out of that.  She is loving to chew on anything she finds, doesn't matter if it is your sock with your foot still inside it!  I'll get some more photos of her soon, as she looks a lot bigger and more 'grown-up' already.

It's a horrible day here today, freezing cold rain, with some snow predicted - I just hope that doesn't happen.  After we've shifted sheep, and helped put up some more fences for the next few days, we're going to watch a couple of rugby games and I am planning some stitching tonight. I'm picking Southland to beat Otago(I hope) to retain the Ranfurly Shield, followed by the All Blacks to beat the Wallabies(I hope). 
Go the Stags and the AB's!!! 

Have a wonderful weekend.............Nicky

Kelly is so cute! I feel like giving her a hug. :) Weather is too hot and humid here, I think we should "exchange weather", (LOL) I send some warm and get some cold rain from you for a "perfect" weather.

Sally said...

Oooh she is adorable!!!! I have to admit that I have a soft spot for bblack labs as we had one and so did my parents-in-law.

Carol said...

Hi Nicky, Kelly looks so gorgeous, all soft and silky :) I love labs -until recently my Dad has always had a lab, they are so much fun.

Hope you got lots of stitching done while watching the rugby - go the AB's!

Oh she is adorable! Dogs are such amazing pets... I wouldn't be without one! We are major dog lovers in this household! My Hubby's family had a chocolate Lab growing up - they are such a great breed. We have a Springer Spaniel now and she is a delight :o)

Nicky, Kelly is too sweet! I also have a Kelly, my black lab. We are about 12 years old now. I picked her up at the Humane Society eleven years ago. She's a delight as I know your Kelly will be.
