Nicknames: Muffin Man, My Austin Man Boyz, Bubby, Bullhead Boyz
Birthday: March 1st 2006
Arrival Story: Mommy found me in a local shelter. I was in the puppy room. I was so cute she couldn't resist. The person she was with wanted to check out the big dog room but she said "No because someone might decide they want him while we are looking". So she went straight up to the front to give the desk my number & from that point on I was mommy's little man!
Bio: Well mommy calls me her big all american boy. I'm the typical lab. I love to play in water any way I can, this includes swimming in the lake, playing in the water hose (spraying at me so I can catch it in my mouth), & digging to china in the baby pool mommy has for me. I do not like baths though. I put up with them but give mommy a guilty look the WHOLE TIME! I worked long & hard to get filthy, & i'll just go roll back in the dirt after I'm clean so what's really the point here! C'mon! I was what mommy calls "a handful" when I was growing up. I got into everything! And whatever I got a hold of I tore up. This included mommy's leather jackst (it was old & she needed to get rid of it anyway), part of her latest diary (she has plenty, why need that one?) part of the carpet in the apt we used to live in, & many other things I can't remember off paw. I'm much better at the chewing thing now. I even keep my plushie toys in one piece! When I go to lick mom & I have dirt hanging from my mouth, she won't let me near her! What's the problem? I love HER when she smells! Although I love to get dirty & play I also enjoy the comforts of resting my head on mommy's chest. I have slept in the bed with her since I was 2 months old. She calls me her bed buddy. I LOVE to cuddle up as close as I can to mommy. I also love to wrestle. It the most fun when I'm at a dog park & another dog does the sumo wrestler move with me! My talents, other than mole retrieval, include sit, lay down, catching treats in my mouth, and coming back when called. I also have a great sense of smell & mom says I could easily be a search & rescue dog! I love to fetch tennis balls, especially in a lake or pool. I prefer to play the hide & seek game with mommy & my plushie. If i'm not "working" in the backyard or playing I am laying somewhere, most likely on MOM. I like car rides only b/c they bring me somewhere fun, but the ride itself makes me sick. I lay my head down moments after we start moving. Mommy says its so sad. B/c I'm not a food hog, I tend to get "people food" treats. Probably more often than I should. I have a strong prey drive so I will chase pretty much anything that moves, from a little moth to a duck, to squirrels. I've caught a few rodents in my day too! Did mommy mention I am obsessed with water! I love to go to the dock at the lakehouse and watch mommy fish or get on the float with mommy and float around in the water.
