Daughter of the Mountains

I have someone to introduce to you. Her name is Shyla, "daughter of the mountains".
She is super affectionate toward people. I feel like she's already bonded strongly to me and the Runner within the past 24 hours.
She's 9 months old and only 41 lbs (very small for a Lab). She is still truly a puppy at heart. She ran laps in our living room today while tucking her butt and sliding around the corners on the hardwood floor. She was bursting with puppy happiness.

She's built to run, with a light frame and long legs. And, she's so smart that I've already taught her new behaviors today, like making eye contact on cue and poking my hand with her nose on cue. I have so many things to teach her. I can't wait!

So, here's our new girl, Shyla. We'll all be getting to know her together.
I feel grateful to have such an amazing girl to nurture and love.

  4. What a perfect name for her. And how full of life she is. Can't wait to learn how she is with R. Is he happy about having her there? This is so fun to get to travel this road with you guys.

  5. Gooooooooood choice, KB! I like her pink nose! She is small for a lab, but that just makes it easier on you when she wants to be a lap dog :) Ziggy at 85 pounds is a little ridiculous!

  13. KB, she's just beautiful and something about her expression in one of those pictures reminds me of K. She is truly a blessing in your life.

  14. Wow, What a sharp looking pup! So, How's her toy drive? (Just asking Carrie, that's all) I could be in love with floppy eared dog. I don't comment much on blogs but she got me to. Anyway, hope you enjoy the numerous new adventures that you are about to embark on. -Mr. Taleteller.

  28. From the mom - just been reading the past few days with no time to comment but I can't leave without a few words or so about this beauty. Congratulations on your decision - Shyla is definitely a good fit there with you, the Runner and R. I love her name - also a good fit - when I look at her pic then say her name - it's natural - no other name would be as good.

    And I thought maybe I was just seeing things but Amber Daweenie also saw it - something in Shyla's face - and it's more than just in her Lab eyes - there is definitely something there - spirit-like - that reminds me of K. Yep, pretty sure Angel K had something to do with your decision to get Shyla and maybe even something to do with naming her.

  33. Many , many congrats to your family member. Beautiful name he has, is it the name the breeder gave her or did you give her a new one?
    She´s a beauty already with wise eyes. You will have a lot of happniness with her. I´m sure R is very happy to have someone to play and run with.
    It will be very nice to follow you all with her.
    We have now one month to the hunting season with our small ones. Cant wait to let them loose. On Sunday we will go test trial on blood tracking with Vilja and Trym.
    Hugs from us!!!

  34. She's a beauty but totally different from K. And I love the lighter Labs, though with nine months she will prbabely not gain many more hight but will put on weight.
    Looking forward for the pictures and stories you'll share!

  35. Welcome beautiful Shyla. I love your name and you are so pretty. I can't wait to get to know you better and see your adventures. I know R will love you and will teach you the ropes. You have so much exploring ahead of you. I am so happy for all of you.

  37. Oh what a beauty! She looks totally switched on too...

    Elsie has had me in stitches running laps of the living room too, ears back, paws bounding. Under and through the tables again and again and again. Although she wrecks the joint when she's doing it, and may well scratch the wooden floor, I know she'll only be small enough to do it for a short time so have vowed to enjoy it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. She is just gorgeous and we love her name!
    We're also horrified that Molly already weighs more than she does! YIKES!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  53. Welcome Shyla! KB, you have totally surprised me here-I thought you were getting a really young puppy. Shyla is beautiful, the perfect age and size. Oh what joy; since she is Hunter's age, I wish you lived close to teach me how to teach him. Have a joy filled day, filled with puppy love and laughter.
