Bentley from Alabama

We were approved to foster in September 2011 & received 54 lb "Dustin" from an Alabama shelter later that month. We re-named him Bentley, after the governor of Alabama (Robert Bentley). A few weeks later a coworker came to meet Bentley. He wanted to adopt a Lab for his son. The minute he left we broke down & agreed there was no way we could let OUR Bentley go.

We were foster failures.

But we can't imagine life without Bentley. He immediately got obedience training & settled into a routine with us. He is full of energy & goes to the dog park or on a jog with us every day. He has never met a stranger, he sometimes thinks he is a lap dog, & he now weighs almost 80 lbs! He's such a smart boy, never misses a beat, & gets compliments on how good looking he is everywhere he goes. He likes to be the center of attention!

We know Bentley would have gone to a great home, but we are so happy to have him in our home. Thank you Love of Labs!

Our New Baby

Buddy is loving life and is very well behaved. After a week I can barely move my shoulder from playing so much ball with him. He goes so often and for so long that I really don't know what I would have done with a puppy. This guy is 6 years old! And he loves the pond outback. He hasn't even discovered the other 8 ponds on the place yet. Gracie, who doesn't like any other dogs, has become his little pal. They trade food bowls and beds but he sets boundaries on his ball. He's serious about that.

He loves it here on the farm. And we love him. And Gracie almost loves him, lol.

Thanks for our new baby....
