    Awwww she looks really sweet :)

    If there was ever a war break out in Australian and there was the fear of invasion, I'd bottle my Labradors farts up and I reckon be able to fight off invading forces. It's like they come straight from the depths of the arse directly into your nose.

    More than a few times I've walked out of my home office wretching :D

    Congratulations, Shelby is gorgeous. I am sure she will make herself at home in no time and it will seem like she has been with you forever!

    My dog is 9 next week, but I got her when she was about 9 weeks. I remember the training pads, the chewing (in my case the most comfortable leather lounges I've ever owned, the 3 seater and the singles eventually.)
    She grew out of it about 2 but I didn't do any training so maybe that helps.

    how do you get a dog to play with ropes/ toys?? chase a ball etc.
    she seems content to just sit near us... and not play with anything

    i remember when our dog was young usually a tug of war was a good way to get them to start to fetch.

    gotta get them motivated to run around as well.
