Chance Black Labrador Retriever Male 2 Years Old

December 11, 2019
Chance spends a good bit of his day curled up next to FM’s desk (she works from home).   Of course he has to take breaks to bark at the mailman, UPS delivery and Amazon delivery Labrador Retriever
After work it’s a long walk around town, then playtime with the resident Golden Retriever and Black Lab while FM prepares dinner (ours and hers).
After dinner it’s time for snuggles.    This house has a crazy “no sofa” rule, which Chance learned with only one day of reminders.   But snuggling on the floor is just as much fun.
He’s doing really well.   The howling when we leave the house has reduced.   I notice he is spending more time playing yesterday and today, both by himself and with my black Labrador Retriever on stairs

He likes to hang out in his crate when we or the other dogs are in sight. black Labardor Retriever in crate
As soon as we leave the room he follows.  We are making good progress on Wait command before going out the door for a walk.
He loves playing with the resident Black Lab and Golden

Chance is now in foster care and doing great with three resident dogs. one golden retriever and two black Labardor Retriever
Chance is true Velcro dog at this point in time.    As I type this I cannot move my desk chair as he is laying up against it so I cannot move.    He follows me everywhere, this morning he even tried to get into the shower with me.   He is fine in his crate so long as he can see us.  The minute we are out of sight he starts to whimper.
Chance is good with leash walking and basic commands.  While he could certainly benefit from more training he’s got a good foundation, and even in this short first day I’m observing Chance-see, Chance-do as he carefully watches my resident Black Lab.    He doesn’t seem very interested in his food today, and I’m not sure if this is because of the new alpha blocker he is taking for his heart or just the new environment.
He’s a gorgeous dog and very lovey.
