Blakers Lately

Our little Blakely pup is not little anymore. And she hasn't been little for a long time to be honest. She's now 15 months old, and still all puppy. Crazy as she ever was, and I love her so much. Whoever said a lab would calm down at one year- HA. I laugh in your face. Really, I do. Though, these pictures are fooling. She looks rather chill doesn't she? Well, you have to be quick to snap this girl's picture. She's forever chasing a squirrel, or barking at a rock, or running around in circles for no good particular reason other than just to do it.

At her last vet checkup a couple months ago, she weighed in at a whopping 103 lbs. That is almost as much as I weigh, so to say my jaw dropped is an understatement. A big, big understatement. Vet said girly needs to lose 10 lbs. I'm not sure from where though, because she's solid muscle in my opinion and gets a ton of exercise.

I promise she doesn't lay around ALL day... :)

She's still a big chewer. Sticks, rocks, siding, houses, shoes, whatever she can get to really, she'll chew it up. I love her anyways. She also loves to be with people 24/7 and meet every dog she can. She's a huge fan of playing, and an even bigger fan of snoring. And boy, can she saw some logs. She's seriously louder than my husband. Seriously.

We love you, crazy Blakely Beans!

Hey Ashley! As I'm sure you've seen, I have a lab as well. She is the best, but like your girl, she was quite wild at first. She chewed several shoes and destroyed many toys. We finally found a toy she would not annihilate: GoDog Dragons. It's strange, I know she could totally destroy it if she wanted, but for some reason, she doesn't. You can find numerous, different dragons on Amazon for decent prices. They really calm her down and keep her occupied, while she's inside. I highly recommend these toys, and I hope they work for you.

Here's the GoDog website.

Oh, she is so pretty. She looks fine to me. I think vets always say a dog needs to lose weight.
