Our weekend guest.
He's 2 and was supposed to be a show dog/breed stock but has something that showed up about his elbow so the breeder sold him to my friend's daughter.
He'll have a better life. For some reason he was kept in a kennel environment with outdoor yard to run around and was never house trained!
So we offered to host him this weekend while his new mom is out of town, rather than have him go back to the kennel and set him back in training.

So far he has nosed the bells 3 times to go out and he stands by the door the other times. He knows sit verbally and with hand gesture. And.....so far..... no accidents in the house. But I'm not taking any chances just yet. We have him in rooms away from our newest furniture. He does mark a LOT outdoors and I'm not taking any chances inside, although he hasn't marked anything in the allowed rooms.

He's also eating dehydrated raw food from a provider in South Jersey that my Weim friend is using for her dogs. The place usually provides raw meat, but has gotten into dehydrated. I like it. Mostly meat. And he LOVES it.

Right now he's laying on the floor (he prefers that to bedding....I guess more like his kennel was) and sucking gently on a huge stuffed toy. SO reminds me of how Frieda would go to sleep. awwwwwww

Since his name is Hagrid, I wonder if he's may have some Neo since that's the breed of dog used in Harry Potter movies as Fang, Hagrid's dog.

I just wrote a long comment and left for dinner in the middle.... it's gone and I'm too tired to redo it.
Will just say he's 100% Lab.
And 100% puppy, although 2 y/o.

I miss him.
I'm emotionally drained, and I wonder if I ever could handle fostering.

Hagrid got snipped yesterday. He got home and headed for his binkie and his crate, where he proceeded to suck, cry, and bark. Poor boy.

He's so cute! Reminds me of another labby boy I know named Zander. I'm sorry you are having a hard time now that he's back home. :hugs:

Poor man. It's serious bidness losing the "boys". Hope he recovers quickly (so you guys can get some peace). He sure is adorable.
