And They Call It Puppy Love
Last May my husband and I surprised our children by bringing home two 8 week old lab puppies: Apollo (yellow) and Loki (black). We've had labs for over 13 years now and they truly are the sweetest and most adorable creatures around. These boys are now 9 months old and are growing at lightning speed. Though they could never replace our first two dogs, they have quickly found their ways into our hearts. Two very different personalities, but both are insanely affectionate and as a family we've soaked in every minute of their love.
Before the snow fell here in Chicago, I captured some portraits of our pooches along with a game of ball led by my son when he arrived home from school. The ball thrower has proven to be a wise investment as A & L are crazy about retrieving. It's an activitiy that all four of our dogs have reveled in, almost to the point of obsession. This next generation has brought a new energy to our house and I can't wait to continue to watch them as they mature into adults and bring so much joy to our lives.
