Lab Puppies
Carol Gattis trains a brood of lab puppies in her backyard pool. Carol says, “At this age, they’re unable to jump out of the pool on their own.” Makes for a phenomenal picture!
Jumping High
Emily Hurt headed to Surfside Beach in Texas with her friends for a long weekend so that their dogs could enjoy lots of beach time. The dogs loved it, especially Emily’s high-flying Felicity. Apparently she's known for her "big air" and is often referred to as MJ (Michael Jordan).
Team Work
Shari Morehead and her husband have 5 wooded acres in Nebraska. They share the land with their 8 labs, and the few pictured here are Mongo Pete, Little Pete, Auggie, Odie and Sugar Bear. Shari calls them her "Lab Team." On this sunny summer day, the labs found a large stick in the Nemeha River and competed to bring it over to Shari and her husband. Shari says, "When they all find one stick, they all want that stick."
