Cooper is looking pretty good. I have a gay hunting Chihuahua.

My brother in-law loves the yellow labs. My dog (black)sired 10 pups with a chocolate lab and one was a yellow female, which I gave him. She got out of his yard and was killed when hit by a car. He was devastated. I gave him a black lab I had kept and was training. We all duck hunt and my lab just finished his 10th season. He only went with me about 1/3 of the time and a few mornings he just layed there and did not want to go. He loves hunting and he must be hurting not to want to go....he is also pretty deaf. I won't replace him unitl he's gone......and when he is gone I will really miss him.... his loyalty and companionship in the duck blind, etc.
Cooper is a nice looking pup. Enjoy!! Yellows are always so much more photogenic than the blacks...
Wow. What a sweetie. So alert.
Better not let my girlfriend see him.
My sweetheart. Sweetest giant there ever was.

OK, that little pup could SO take over in some of these commercials I've seen. Very beautiful!

Correction: He was born Nov 19th, not 10/19
Thanks, he is a good puppy. He is difficult to photograph because every time he sees me with the camera he runs right at me. My other dog is a pure black, Labrador/Border Collie Mix, pound puppy. He is difficult to photograph because he often comes out as just a big, black blob. If the lighting isn't good you can't even see his eyes.
This is my eighth Yellow Lab. We have had labs in the family as hunting dogs and family dogs for about twenty five years now and have never had anything but great experiences with them as family members.
My last Lab, Nikolas, died from Cancer at 7 y.o., a couple years ago. I also had a good Lab die young from getting hit by a car about ten years ago, he were also devastated to lose Zaq. While looking for Cooper I was intentionally looking for a dog with similar features as Zaquiri.
Back in the hunting days I had Chuck. He lived to be about 14 and is still a legend among those who ever hunted with him.

I'm considering a Chesapeake Bay Retriever on the next go-round...and may buy a "started" or "finished" dog. So much time and energy to train them from the start, but then again I'm afraid the relationship might not be there otherwise. My next dog will likely be my last as a hunting partner due to my age....
If you ever get over this way during duck season, let me know and I'll take you....duck hunting in the morning and pool in the evening....what a life!

What a great looking dog. We have a golden retriever/Boarder collie mix about 3 years old, and are thinking about looking for a little sister for her. Doubt if the 3 cats would be too thrilled at the idea. We are thinking maybe a lab.

Whatever you do, I would suggest you stay away from a Jack Russell. I've got one with another dog (the lab) and 3 cats. I got lucky and ended up with JR that is very laid back and all the other animals are still alive.
