    How wonderful for you!!!! There's nothing like a puppy. And a Retriever mix, boy did you luck out. Training should be a breeze because of the temperament and dedication to please.

    But don't forget to be a responsible pet companion, not owner because they actually own us, we're just their loyal companions. Contact your vet and set up an appointment for spaying; you don't have to wait for Lulu's first heat. Then there's that all important Puppy Kindergarten. Your vet should be able to recommend reliable (reward) training classes.

    How I envy you, a puppy, a lab mix puppy. Now that's heaven!

    If I ever had the desire to get a cat... I'd want a black one with a white tummy chin and paws(I know, I don't ask for much :lol: ) and I'd name is Mistopholese (sp?) from the musical CATS :lol:

    Congrats, Toni! She's adorable. I agree with everyone who loves the idea of a retriever mix. I had one and he was so sweet and bright and willing to please.

    I also agree that she should be spayed. When my Bub was in the vet's for neutering, the tech leaned over him and said "are you ready? Let's go." Bub politely took her hand in his mouth and led her to the door! She laughed about it later but I suspect she was speechless at the time.

    Of course, we all want updates on your "little" Lulu. She won't stay little like Daniel's kitty!

    Have you had pups before?

    Be sure to take pictures every week, they grow so fast!

    We have five golden-retriever mix dogs. A latex glove is very
    good for whisking the yellow dog-hair off your clothes. It kind
    of rolls it up into a ball. Do this before using the tape roller
    lint remover. Use the latex glove for the trucks and busses
    and the tape roller for the finishing touches.
    Those things that look like window cleaners with the hard
    rubber blades are excellent for raking dog hair out of carpets
    and upholstered furniture.
    After the pup gets older those shedding blades that look
    like a saw blade in a circle are excellent for removing loose
    hair. Do this outside. I then gather up the wad of yellow
    hair and place it in a mesh onion sack cliped to a tree branch
    for the birdies to use to line their nests.

    Great idea about the bird nest material. I'm so used to wearing All American breed clothes that I'd feel naked without them.

    There are some owners that use the under coat as weaving materials. I've never seen any but I'm told that the Malamute under coat makes very soft woven products.

    Congratulations on the new arrival!! :D I have two Golden Retrievers (hence my user name ), and I think they are just the best! Baby puppies are so much fun; I echo the comment about taking lots of pictures, because you can see changes in them every day for the first few weeks - its really something!

    How is Lulu (Lu?) settling into her new home so far? Please give us lots of updates.

    La Brum et al,

    Only thing I'd add - make sure you get the kind of gloves they use for dishwashing. It's those dimples and bumps that catch up the hair.

    I always liked gathering up the shedding fur and watching the birds come and go to fur-line their nests! The only way to make lemonade outta all that fur! Ok, except for those people who spin and weave.

    By the way, welcome to the board, Goldenlady.
