He wakes up around 6:30-7:00am.  He will eat and play until about 9:00am, then for most of the day he kind of wonders, sleeps and chews on a bone.  Around 4:00pm in the afternoon he gets his second wind.  He loves to play for a while and will go to bed around labrador retriever mix

Colby’s day 3 was spent outside.  We basically spent from the time we got up until dinner, outside.  Colby enjoyed chasing birds, bugs and sometimes nothing at labrador retriever mixWe took Colby for a walk for the first time and it was hilarious.  I’m guessing he never had a leash on. He rolled and flipped for about 15 minutes.  It reminded me of an alligator. Once we got going he followed us, but by no means is he trained on a labrador retriever mixColby has figured out if he bites our resident dogs tail, it will get her to play.

Today is Colby’s second day with us.  He has not stopped wagging his labrador retriever mixWe tried the crate last night for bedtime but gave up.  He ended up sleeping next to my husband from 7:00 pm-7:00 am without a peep.  If you want a snugglier, then Colby might be right for you.  We do put him the crate when we leave for a few hours.  He barks for a little but then calms labrador retriever mixWe are working on house training.  He seems to know what to do when we take him out but doesn’t know how to tell us he needs too.  I believe he will be easy to labrador retriever mixWe have enjoying watching Colby explore, play with balls,  and sit for awhile and chew on a bone. He is very good at entertaining labrador retriever mixI don’t have many pictures to share.  To get a puppy to sit still for a picture is more difficult than you think.

Colby is a sweet heart!
