Just an FYI - you are not supposed to run with dogs until they are fully grown.

You might want to hold off just a bit on taking her to the dog park until you know she's had all her booster vaccines, just in case there are some dogs there who might not be fully vaccinated and therefore carrying something that she could get. By all means take her out for walks and let her meet and greet people but avoid high concentrations of dogs for just a little while longer.

Wishing you all many wonderful, healthy, fun filled years together.
She has some more shots scheduled coming up all within a few weeks. Even after that probably still won't take her until it gets a little warmer and she gains a little bit more stamina. She's only 9 weeks old so she plays for 20 minutes and gets tired.

Didn't know that, thanks for that tip. I'll have to look them up right now.

I was told about a year or so.

She looks just like my dog Lucy did at that age. Lucy grew up to be a great dog.

My guess is your pup is not mixed much, pretty much a black lab. She's beautiful.

She is precious! Lab mixes are hard for me to figure out. They always look like they could be a blend of Lab + any of a dozen other breeds. Labs definitely need active owners, so it looks like she hit the jackpot with you

She's black and the black color maybe comes from Lab, but she's at least 1/2 pitbull. She's a small pup, so something in her background is a small dog.
