Prinkle Yellow Labrador Retriever Female 7-8 Years Old ID #3397
January 29, 2024
Prinkle is making great progress at settling in, though living in a house is a foreign concept for her. The attached photo shows her staring at the television – she barked at it a few times, then just watched it suspiciously.
She is very smart, and has picked up a few spoken commands from watching the resident dogs – the most important is “Come”, (with a big arm gesture), which she seems to understand to a certain extent. She has begun to indicate that she needs to go out, which is fabulous!
Her favorite game is fetch, and she races the other 2 dogs to get the ball first. Great exercise for an overweight girl!
She loved the goodie box sent by BLRR. Thank you so much! Such a great selection of toys and goodies. 😃

Sweet wigglebutt Prinkle has come a long way in just 2 days! She has created a little space for herself in the family area, and has carried several stuffed toys to it, creating a nest. She is not at all territorial about it; however, I think it’s just a place to call her own. She will go into the crate, but does not seem to want to stay there. Not pushing it – she has a lot to learn yet.
She is a quick learner – has learned to climb the scary (not!) carpeted stairs at bedtime, and is very proud of herself after she does.
She will ask to go out, very subtly, and always does her business after she gets out. (The resident dogs are setting a good example for her.)
She has learned to eat from a bowl, rather than the floor, and is not at all food defensive, though she will try to steal the cat’s food if given a chance. We’re working on her weight issue; it will take a good long while – she needs to lose at least 30 pounds – but she’s not complaining about the food!

Prinkle joined us on January 22. Such a sweet girl! Our resident dogs took to her immediately, and she is now just one of the group. She has shown us a playful side, and just today initiated play using a tennis ball. She is very much overweight, which we have started working on, but watching her play with the other 2 dogs tells us that she is willing to exercise and should be able to lose the extra pounds.
She is very good in the house, and though she has had a couple of minor accidents, she will go out when the other dogs do, and willingly potties. She ignores the cats completely.
We look forward to seeing her as she blooms into the wonderful girl that we know she will become.
