Here's Ripley....................

He's been a great little guy so far. Just turned nine weeks. Pees and poops in the grass (mostly)

If you have never had a Lab before, please be advised that they chew EVERYTHING! Congrats on your new buddy. Puppy dog enthusiasm is contagious.

Yeah we had one when I was a teenager at home (15 years ago). Now it's all becoming real again. Not only do they chew everything.....they redefine "everything" to things you didn't know were chewable.

Using the toy distraction technique, I'm pretty sure it takes at least $5000 worth of dog toys to keep them occupied. But I wouldn't trade it for anything....great dogs

Very cute puppy! We have a black lab and I think we will get a chocolate next. My Lab has chewed up so many random things, shoes, tubes of bacitracin, tylenol, tampon applicators, tupperware, wood (stools, cabinets, etc) and he even chewed and scratched up our walls! Luckily it's just sheetrock and my SO is a carpenter. Luckily he never really distroyed anything too important. He is more important to me then anything materialistic. Our lab is almost 3 and he still has more energy then anyone could ever imagine. All he wants to do is play and he will play NON STOP ALL day!

Love the last two pics with his ears flapping. I shall call him Yoda

Great looking lab.

While most may be chewers, my black lab never chewed up anything. YMMV of course

Great dog and labs do chew everything. GO to sam's club and buy bulk raw hide chewy's.

I have a rat terrior(what his papers said when we adopted him from the recue people and he weighted 1.8 lbs. Now he weights 60lbs) that grew into a black lab.
They love water and will always be getting into something if not kept occupied with something to do.

Have fun with that pup.

We had good luck spraying "Bitter Apple" on stuff we didn't want our boys chewing.

I used an entire bottle of that this weekend.... it does seem to work. Might have to order the gallon size.

Do you think I could just get a crop spraying airplane to load up with it and spray my entire house and yard ?

Thanks Not a pro just like messing with it as a very casual hobby to capture other things I like doing.

Sent you a PM.
