Betty-Lou the Labrador Retriever

Dog Breed: Labrador Retriever

Betty-Lou's dad says: Betty-Lou came to live with us four months before our first child was to arrive. When we brought Tyler home from the hospital, Betty-Lou greeted him with a big lick and they have been best friends ever since. When Tyler is crying, Betty-Lou goes into his room and lies down under his crib until he calms down. Betty-Lou's favorite activities are playing fetch with her buoys, Frisbee, swimming, running in the prairie grass, hanging out with our friends' dogs, scaring up wildlife in the woods, and riding shotgun in my Jeep Wrangler with the top down. She is also just starting to learn doggy agility and is taking to it quite nicely. She is very much part of our family and has fit into our outdoor style of life perfectly. My friends are starting to tease me that they never see me without my companion, Betty-Lou, and that's just the way I like it.
