Puppy Love - Our newest family member
The long and short of it is that we now have a new family member named Nika who is a sweet little female lab puppy. The personality difference between a lab and a boarder collie puppy is amazingly different. Our boarder collie mix is almost a year old now so his puppyhood is still fresh in my memory. Typical to a lab Nika is already eager to please and obedient. I have noticed her nose is much more sensitive and she is much more of a "people" dog. She of course also has the lab tendency towards mouthing everything! I know she's going to be a great family dog, and hopefully a good hunter. She has already adjusted to our family and absolutely loves our kids. I have always thought that labs make great all around family/alert/deterrent dogs with the added bonus of being able to hunt. With our active family who likes to go camping and fishing allot she will be a good fit.
