Harry at 6 months

Remember this little cutie?
This is Harry at 7 weeks.

This is Harry today.
He's done gone grown up!

Things to know about Harry
1. He's a Labrador, so he likes food.
2. He enjoys exercise, so he wants more food.
3. He sleeps in the kennel each night with Lucy, so he dreams of food.
4. He knows that 5am is time to wake up, so he expects food for breakfast.
5. He loved puppy pre-school because someone was always giving him food.
6. He continues to be Mama's good boy, so that he can get more food rewards.
7. He's is a skinny male, so he can afford more food.
8. He's learning how to swim - anything to get food!
9. Harry's real name is Henry Bullwinkle Davies - he eats to forget.
10. Harry simply likes to eat.

And, for those of you who don't follow my Daily Bliss site , here's a picture of Lucy.

My wee girl is 17 months old & a whopping, muscular 32kg.
We walk / run miles every day.
Lucy had a heart attack last weekend after she was bitten by a paralysis tick, but she's well again, just not allowed to exercise for a few weeks. She's also restricted with her diet so that she doesn't gain weight while she's not exercising.
Life is tough for a labrador on a diet, believe me!
LOL. I think it's also killing her to watch me and Harry as we leave for our morning walks without her.

He is adorable. We fostered a labrador puppy for 12 months for the Australian Customs Dept. I've often wanted to get another labrador, they are such friendly dogs.

Where's "He's a labrador, so he eats poop"? Or did you find the one who doesn't? Lucky you!

Sally said...

Harry is so cute!!! I love labradors! We had a black lab and he was the most adorable dog.

I hope Lucy is better soon.

Hi Bliss,
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
This is also my first visit to your blog and I enjoyed the time I spent here. Your works are amazing and you have very pretty WIPs too.
And your dogs are so adorable!
Have a nice weekend,

Aww, they are both gorgeous Bliss. Just looking at the photo of Lucy's face, you can so tell she's a girly. She's very pretty. I'm glad she's ok after what happened at the weekend. That must have been really scary.

DH and I have watched the pics and read the things to know about Harry and it soooo reminds us of Jam, our golden retriever. He's now 14 and still has a passion for food... I guess he also needs to forget about his name... Lol!
Poor Lucy, I hope she recovers fine and can enjoy life with the two of you asap!
Enjoy your week end.

I am so sorry to hear that Lucy has been ill and hope she will be well again soon.

Apart from food the main thing about labradores is they still think they are puppies at 10 they just never grow up like other dogs and always seem to have a real sense of fun.

Love labs! Harry is adorable and Lucy reminds me of my parent's yellow lab, Lulu. They have a black one now called Cilla (as in Cilla Black). I miss her - she's such a boofhead :)

You have two cuties there! I cant imagine what it would be like to get another puppy now, my Staffy has just turned 9 and he is just such a loving boy and spends most of his time relaxing around the house and garden, a puppy would probably be very exhausting.
Have fun!
