Who needs Jimmy Stewart movies when you have two labra-mutts in your life?
And I must say, this duo is a constant source of entertainment!
Tucker turned two in January (we think) and is fondly referred to as our Beautiful Beast.
The DNA testing tells us that he is half Lab with the other half being a mixture of Pit Bull, Bulldog, and a companion/guard/sporting breed combo. Despite his brooding appearance, this fellow is 90 pounds of pure loyal love.
Chaco turned one this week (again, we are guessing!) and is an alert, feisty female who is quick to give kisses and has a happy labby tail. Her DNA testing (If you do it for one, you must do it for the other!) shows that she is about 65% Lab with a chunk of Weimaraner and some sort of Asian breed mix.
Needless to say, outside play time is something they love – especially if I am out with them.
Tucker loves to play with toys…
…and Chaco thinks Tucker is her toy.
They are so stinkin’ cute when they retrieve things together. Whether it be one of the fetch sticks…
…one of the balls…
…or just a plain old stick from the yard. Sometimes I watch them and find myself singing the “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” song from Toy Story.
When we are inside, they are my constant “helpers.” They love laundry folding duty…
…and are never far away when I am cooking. In fact, they stick so close in the kitchen that trying to fix dinner or wash dishes has become a bit of a labstacle course!
And don’t even think about trying to sneak a snack!
Yep…I have a Labra-ful life indeed.
*Tucker and Chaco were both rescued through Labrador Friends of the South, an organization I would highly recommend if you are ever interested. 🙂
