All in the Family
Phoenix Lucy Layla


Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever

On November 3rd I have lost my mind (once again!) and added one more dog to my happy family of two. She was about 10 weeks old, with full mouth of puppy teeth, no manners, no shots, and no training. It took my two dogs ( Lucy almost 10 and Phoenix 6) about 2 weeks to stop grawling at the newcomer, but they are a happy pack of three now. I am, as one can imagine, a one busy "mama", but I really love them all! Zoe is a Labrador/Golden Retriver mix, and she is smart and goofy in one. She had mastered "sit" in two hours, and was able to play off-leash on the fourth morning in our local dog park. Every time I call her, she happily rans to me. She fearlessly plays with any dogs (big and small) as long as they don't mind her trying to chop their heads off!. Today she is about 4 months old, she snores like a man, has one puppy tooth left, and plans on staying a lap dog forever! P.S. Correction: Zoe lost her last puppy tooth this morning playing in her first ever snow with her friends and family. *** Today is August 22, 2010 and it is Zoe's estimated 1st Birthday. Unfortunately, we had to give Zoe for adoption back in February. My two older dogs Lucy and Phoenix never got over her puppyhoodiness and playfullness, for they are very mellow at this point of their lives. When Zoe started growing larger, about 5 months of age, she playfully torn Phoenix's ear to blood, and my "fearless man of the house" was terrified and very unhappy. We found Zoe a good home. She resided a few blocks away from us with a new mama, grandmama, a 14 years old boy she sleeps with, and a 2 years old cocker spaniel Charlie - a partner in crimes. Last I heard, everyone was happy, including my dogs!

She is so pretty! I love her mix! It is so unique [: And look at those eyes. Just gorgeous! Her story was very sweet. And I remember when my Bella had her puppy teeth! I stepped on a few of them... And they HURT! Haha, I was playing Soccer outback with her (Which she loves) and I stepped on something really sharp and hard! Then, another time, I saw it was loose in her mouth, and then she ran away, and pulled it out by moving her paw around her mouth! She suprises me everyday [: I bet Zoe is the same way! Check out my two Australian Shepherd Girls, Amber and Bella, and please comment on them. Thanks! [: ♥ ♥ [:

Haha, and I agree with DogLuva595, thoes puppy teeth do hurt! But, my Sugar is close to outgrowing hers, so hopefully Zoe is too! There is an age differnce though(: Love Zoe, again!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww!!!! ! What a sweetheart!!!! I know how animals can be about new comers - my rabbit Flopsy took months before he finally excepted Cuddles, but the end result is always good - they're best friends now as I'm sure Lucy, Phoenix and Zoe are too! Zoe has cheered me up from having a terrible loss today. My best friends guinea pig sadly passed away - I loved him like he was my own as I'd always look after him when my friend was on holiday. But everything happens for a reason. Zoe is absolutely gorgeous! I'm admiring all the pics of her!!! She's like my dogs, Ruby and Lucy - put together!! I love the name Zoe, especially for a dog! Her ears look very soft - I want to give her a big hug! I'm sure she must bring a lot of joy to your lives. I know about how when your pup first comes into your lives its a struggle - teaching obedience - potty training - all of that! Zoe looks like a lovely puppy!!! Lots of love and kisses to her from PuppyLover897!!! ;) xoxo

At the time of separation I cried my eyes out, but now I know it is better for everyone that Zoe found her forever loving home a few blocks away. I see her and her Cocker Spaniel brother Archie with their human wonderful mom once in a while, and I am so happy she is in good hands. Yes, Zoe is two! She is as goofy as she was at 3 months old, still jumping and kissing everyone! Amaizingly, she is always very exited to see me and my dogs while Archie is not so fond of it. But the two of them are good buddies, and it is wonderful. Thank you so much for remembering Zoe's Birthday!
