Puppy Breath...

  It's time for an announcement...
 
After missing his Morgan for the past seven years, Handsome finally felt that it was time to open his heart again to another Labrador. Our dear friend, Mike Sommers offered him pick of the litter from this breeding and Handsome didn't think twice.
We met the litter of five, little, three-week-old girls yesterday...and it was love at first sight. My dear husband is like an excited teenager again. He can't wait until we can bring his sweet puppy home!
He decided her name shall be "Bella".
No full AKC registered name yet, but her call name is now official...
and very appropriate, don't you think?
Mike (Mike Sommers Sporting Dogs) is extremely proud of this breeding, and we're honored that he offered one of the litter to Handsome. It's just like old times in Wisconsin when we all sat around talking dogs with him and his dad, Ray. 

Thanks to Mike and this litter, the tradition continues between our two families, and we're all very grateful.
Of course, I got to hold this sweet thing, too! We're going back in two weeks to see her again and take more pictures. Tag hasn't met her yet, because she's still too little. They've barely opened their eyes and are toddling. 

By the time we return, they'll be developing their personalities and running around. It will be loads of fun to sit in the grass and enjoy their puppy-ness. Until then, we'll dream of puppy breath and a new furball coming to live with us. It's going to be a long five weeks until then!

What a little cutie Bella is. You will enjoy all the puppy moments there is. My hubby lost his lab about two years ago and in December he rescued a lab mix from the shelter. She's sweet but its been a adjustment since we also have two little chihuahuas.

Oh, she is gorgeous!!! What a perfect little puppy!!! I just love her and know you can't wait for Tag to meet her. I'm starting to look for a Corgi and hope I can find one as adorable and special as Tag. I've been without a dog long enough!!! Love, Eleanor

Bella the Black Lab is very sweet in her tiny new lifeform. It is easy to see how she has charmed Handsome and yourself. I am certain Tag will be the perfect "Big Brother". Bella Puppy Bliss...

I agree, there is just something about the sweet little warm smell of puppy breath... one of the special things in life! I think Tag will make such a wonderful 'big' brother & will adore Belle too! xo

Puppy breath! Nothing else like it. Would you look at the size of her paws!!! Little Bella is going to grow to be a BIG Bella. With a big brother like Tag she is sure to be a sweetie.

Oh she is gorgeous! Puppies smell so sweet - then they grow up!! :o)
Tag will love her - goodness though all that energy from puppy-hood and beyond... I grew up with Labs so know how turbo-charged they can be sometimes... when they're not sleeping!
