Wait until the chewing starts. There's 2 full years of dealing with that ahead. Good news is that once he's past the terrible two's he'll be a great dog.

I've stopped counting.

Sweet pup. Hide all the furniture you love..same with shoes. They are worth it though.

When we got our Aussie 15 years ago, this was the hardest part. Aussie developed a territorial attachment to the grate and got upset when I tried to put the wife in it for her time outs Wink

What part of "...Shall not be infringed" don't you understand???

When we got our first dog as a married couple, my wife did NOT want him (there was some serious lack of communication going on there). She told me it was 'my' dog and I was to care for it. No prob. After about a month, she came around, and she ended up far more protective of him than even I was. I can't guarantee your wife will feel the same way, but it is definitely possible.

You probably already know this, but Labs were bread to hunt in the field for 12 hrs a day, so he will require a lot of exercise.

Also, you named him after the god of mischief, so good luck with that. . . Wink

Training the trainer. That’s what it’s called. It’s never the dog’s fault, it’s the damn handler.

I don’t want no teenage queen. I just want my M14. If I die in the combat zone, box me and ship me home. Pin my medals upon chest. Tell my mom I done my best.
