Jenn and I are thinking of getting another Labrador puppy. We went back to the breeder yesterday as one of Maddie's older sister's, Trixie, just had a litter with the same father as Maddie. (Trixie had the same mother as Maddie, Lulu, but a different father.) We took Maddie with us and we all seemed to bond with the same female. Maddie was very gentle with her and the breeder immediately said he thought Maddie would end up "adopting" the new puppy as hers. It was very precious to see the interaction between the two. We will have probably made a decision by tonight as to what we're going to do. The puppy wouldn't be ready until around Thanksgiving.
