I've discovered Dexter, another lovely black lab, over at Mango and Dexter's great adventures who is hosting a contest for all the lovely black labbies out there. Of course, I HAVE to enter Sophie. She made me. So, in honour of said contest, a little black is beautiful photoshoot, representing a quiet, rainy day for us...
Napping on the bed, while I write a paper...
Supervising mye efforts to cook dinner. I know she really, really wanted that Shepherd's Pie, but I'm on overdrive, keeping things off the counter. Poor Sophie, she would like you to know she's starving to death, as a result.
"Hmmm, what's that smell... are you sure I can't have some Shepherd's Pie, mom?? C'mon, please??"
Bored now. Must yawn.
Ah, pretty girl!
And, not to be left out, Spike himself, come to check on dinner in the kitchen too. I love my black kids, what can I say??
There was a time in my life, right after I lost Mortimer that I said NO BLACK DOGS, NO MALES and NO BORDER COLLIES OR MIXES!! Of course, I met Spike and had to bring him home. And, when I was thinking about getting Spike a friend, I knew I wanted a bouncing, silly, goofball of a lab. I put in my order with Sophie's breeder, telling her I wanted a Yellow Male, please and thank you very much. So, of course in Soph's litter, there were 10 pups all together, 6 males, 4 females ALL BLACK. So, the rest is history. I have come to love these little black faces, and even if there is a little white face in the midst now, we won't hold that against her. We all know Murph aspires to be just like Sophie anyway!! Black dogs are beautiful and one was clearly not enough!
