Introducing Ruby!!!!

She is a “Red Pedigree” Labrador Retriever, which means she is a Labrador Retriever who comes from a family of winning show dogs.
Her official Kennel Club pedigree name is "Ruby Fenflyer Star Chaser" but we will obviously just call her "Ruby" Both of her parents and grandparents are winning show dogs and have won numerous awards for track, field and appearance.


We picked her up today, she will be 8 weeks old on Monday.

She has settled in wonderfully. She slept most of the way home in the car on my lap ( when she wasn't trying to eat my hair or lick my nose

Since she has been home she has spent most of the day trying to eat my hair, trying to get me to rub her belly, sleeping and generally trying to become my shadow, the amount of times i have nearly trodden on her because shes snuck up under my feet and she is so small!

And now for some pics! (For size comparison my dad wears size 8 shoes and his shoe is bigger than her)

Asleep at the breeders just before I brought her home

Edit: Forgot to add, her breeder is one of the people who supplys the pups for the "Andrex puppy" Adverts so we have put Rubys name down. IF they film in the next month she could be called for and be the next Andrex puppy!

AWWWW!!! that doggie is SOOOOOOO cute! i hope you let the dog socialize because if not, it will turn into a cat: hating dogs and lounging around all day :p

Once Ruby has her jabs we are taking her to "puppy parties" at the local vets ( basically puppy socialising in a controlled environment) next door to us have a 1 year old retriever and next door to them have a 4 month old lab so will probably walk them all together sometimes too.

My old dog ( who died recently at 15 and a half years old) was well socialised as a pup and throughout her adulthood too, she was fine with big dogs but absolutely terrified of cats and very small dogs!

She has been put to bed for the night now, hopefully she wont get me up too many times in the night ( or make too much of a mess over night either!)

Damn you woke her up!

The little minx decided 4am was the time to get up and hypoactivly bounce off of every wall she could find. Slept for another 2 hours with a lot of persuasion, then taught herself how to climb the stairs ( and fall back down) she is currently running around the living room like shes on crack!

Thanks for all the comments!

She is really settling in well and i love her to bits, she is very hard work though!

I sent off all her paperwork yesterday and realised i added wrong, shes actually 7 weeks old not 8, not that it makes any difference as pups are fine to come home from 7 weeks. But am all the more impressed how quick shes picking up this house training lark!

She is very affectionate and loves to come have a cuddle, but loves even more to pull off my socks and run away with them.

She went on her first "walk" yesterday. She hasn't had her jabs yet so couldn't actually walk though. I had to go post a letter so i popped her in my coat and walked to the post box and back with her. I am getting her ready for proper walks by putting on her lead and walking her round the garden every few hours ( she has her first jab tomorrow, then her next one a few weeks later then she is allowed out) Luckily i have a 1/5th an acre back garden for her to run around in the meantime ( under my watchful eye as she likes to eat grass, stones, bark, worms etc)

More piccies

Aaw, so cute. I have a lab too, except she's a black/chocolate lab, is twelve years old, and weighs almost as much as I do. But they're great dogs.

Before i got Ruby i had another yellow lab called Jemma. She died on the 2nd April this year at 15 and a half years old. I still miss her like mad. She weighed more than i did! I would never have any other dog than a Lab as they are such lovable dogs!

Ruby had her first bath today with "baby powder fragrance no tears puppy shampoo" followed with "baby powder fragrance puppy conditioner" she didn't really need a bath, but i want her to get used to being bathed, brushed and having her teeth cleaned etc at an early age.

She was a little angel and sat in the kitchen sink in a washing up bowl while i bathed her. She drank most of the water while i lathered her up then she splashed about while i rinsed her off. She then sat nice and still and let me dry her off with a towel ( while chewing the towel) until she was nearly dry then i wrapped her up in a warm dry towel straight from the dryer while she slept until she was completely dry. She now smells gorgeous and is all soft and slightly fluffy.

Ok so a little update. Ruby is now 8 weeks old. She is pretty much house trained, haven't had any accidents in the house.

She has learnt "sit" and "shake hands" and we are getting there with "lay down" and "show us your belly"

Few more photos... She is growing so fast!

Having gotten all her toys out of the toy box and made a right mess... she decided to try and hide the evidence under the rug ( her size xs t shirt is a bit big too!)

She has mastered: Sit, lay down, shake hands, almost mastered roll over, will "leave it" on command if food is in my hand, and most the time leave food if told when its on the floor. She is getting there with roll over. We are working on recall, but that is still a tad hit and miss!!!

She seems to be completely house trained too now and hasn't had any accidents in a good few days ( touch wood!)

The biting has pretty much calmed down, and when she does get a bit over excited a simple "ah ah" and stopping giving her attention seems to work.

She even road in the car like a big girl on the passenger seat on Tuesday ( with a car harness on) we had the roof down and she didn't chew the seat belts and hardly fidgeted or complained at all.


Its been pretty warm out the last few days so i got the paddling pool out for her.

Do you think she enjoyed it?

The yellow pool in the pic is quite old and already had a puncture when i got it out the garage so didn't stay inflated long, so i went to the shops today and bought her, her own puncture free pool, in a rather girlie shade of fluorescent pink which she also loves.

Here's a video of her yesterday.
