Introducing Cookie. He is a 74 lb yellow lab. He is a sweet guy who really defines the term “mellow yellow”. Cookie is very calm, and just loves people and is happy to just hang out with you, wherever you are. Very low maintenance companion. He likes chew bones, and rope toys, but is not that interested in chasing a ball!
Cookie is fully housetrained. He has not bothered anything in the house, and is fine at night too. We have left him alone a few times during the day, and when we get back the house is just fine (and he is very happy to see us!)
Cookie is wonderful walking on the leash. He is not bothered at all by passing people or cars/trucks. And he does not react to other dogs on leash (he perks up, but if we tell him to come along, he just keeps going). He heels nicely, and could be walked by anybody I think. He also was wonderful when we met a group of little kids. He just let them pet him, with his tail wagging (as it usually is).
Cookie is going to be Neutered next week, and if everything goes well, should be available in a few weeks. He would make a perfect companion in any household, and should be fine with little kids. He has not been cat tested, but based on his personality, and lack of interest when we passed squirrels and geese while walking, I think he would get along with one just fine.
