October 22, 2023

Tarkin had made himself right at home.

He is most happy when going for a ride and sitting in the same room as me..Chocolate Labrador Retriever

He will put himself in ever doorway so he knows if I leave.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

During his first few days, Tarkin peed on 2 of my large dog beds so he made due with the small one.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

He’s so sweet and charming and has definitely wormed his way into our hearts.Chocolate Labrador Retriever

I keep trying to get a picture of it but he has a secret smile that looks like a snarl. It’s so funny but it’s only when he can’t contain his excitement with just a simple tail wag.

Meet Tarkin a handsome 90lb male.

After a semi dramatic start of picking up Tarkin from the Bucks county SPCA, we were on our way to his new life.

Already making a new friend with Rosie our resident doggy!1st step was to find a groomer that will do pro BONE-O. Huge shout out to Posh Pooch in Cherry Hill who grooms foster dogs and shelter dogs for free.  Thank goodness because he stank!Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix

He even got a facial blueberry mask. Tarkin probably lost 5lbs with just the amount of hair they brushed off.He did poop the first night in the kitchen around 1:00 AM. I’m sure he was very nervous. He was also eating some weeds in the backyard probably to try and settle his belly.He has no problem jumping on the couch to lay downDon’t let his size fool you. He’s now going up and down the stairs with no problem and now he’s jumping up on top of my very high bedChocolate Labrador Retriever mix

He always wants to be in the middle of the action even through he is not into playing or horsing around…yet.

Tarkin has made himself at home and is the perfect house guest.

He is very clingy. Despite liking my husband and cuddling with him in our bed, it is me he follows me around the house every time I leave a room.
