Charlie was adopted by his LRR family in October 2012, at the age of 8. An early riser, Charlie starts with a quick trip to the yard and then in for a hearty breakfast. Back out to the yard then back to bed to snuggle with Mom until it is time to take Dad for a walk. After his walk with his 2 sisters it is back to bed for more snuggling. Then it is time to go back out to greet all the people and dogs walking by. Charlie loves to run and play with his sisters and often a foster dog. In the afternoon Charlie takes Mom for a walk then back home to chew bones and nap. When Dad gets home it is time for dinner, another walk and snuggling with Dad on the sofa until bedtime. Charlie has a very active day and says just because there is snow on the roof doesn’t mean there is no fire in the furnace. (06/14)
River was adopted by his LRR family on 1/1/11 at the age of 7 and his family thinks he is number 1. River is an early riser (5:30 a.m.) and it is a quick trip outside then in for a big bowl of dog chow. River then takes Dad for a long morning walk (45-60 minutes).

River loves balls, tennis balls, soccer balls, footballs, but his favorite are squeaky balls. After dinner it is time for his evening walk and then home for snuggling time with his human brother and Mom.

For a 10 year old boy River is a very happy, healthy and active labbie. (04/14)
Jake was adopted by his LRR family in September, 2006. A Labbie providing taxi service for kittens? That’s exactly what Jake does for tiny foster kittens that sometimes stay at his house. He is a gentle big brother as he carries them around the house. Despite a recent diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma, Jake is a friendly, active, and happy boy. He loves car rides, especially if they include a visit to the bank’s drive-through window, and daily strolls around his community, where neighbors smile when they see him walk by. Jake’s mom works from home, so he has family members with him nearly 24/7. After an early breakfast with Dad, Jake heads back to bed with Mom until she gets up, then down the hall to cuddle with his human sister. During the remainder of the day, he helps Mom with her work and plays with his 2 feline siblings. Mom says that every day with Jake is a gift! (01/14)
Brady joins his LRR sister, Dyna, as a donor to a canine blood bank. An active LOL member, he awakes early each day to patrol his yard. He seeks out any and all critters, but especially turtles!! After breakfast, he has another stroll – you never know who may have arrived in the yard during his absence. Naps on the sofa fill his day, interrupted by the dog walker’s visit and Mom’s return from work. Brady loves to swim, which he does twice a week at a local doggie fitness center. Brady’s other big job is managing the LRR foster dogs that occasionally stay temporarily at his home.
Nikki was adopted by her LRR family in October, 2007. She is a healthy and active senior labbie. She is happier than ever, now that her people are retired and at home with her all day. She is a slim 59 pounds and daily allergy medications work well. Her days start early, rising at 5:30 a.m. for a trip outside, with breakfast an hour later. She loves being a couch potato, but is equally delighted to chase squirrels, bunnies, and deer in the yard. When her relative Sarge, another Labbie, visits, they play and play and play. After a busy day, Nikki is ready for an early bedtime at 9:00 p.m. (08/13)

IN MEMORY OF DAISY. SHE CROSSED THE RAINBOW BRIDGE IN May 2013, AT THE AGE OF 9. Daisy was adopted by her LRR family in May 2010. Daisy pounds her tail on the bed to greet each day. This, of course, wakes her owner and they are off and running to start the day’s adventures. An 8.5-year old yellow Labbie, Daisy stays fit by walking and playing ball. Following a morning walk, she has breakfast, hoping that some food spills so that she gets a little extra. Then Daisy settles on the sofa for a morning nap. She has a trot with her dog walker in the afternoon and is waiting at the door when her owner arrives home from work. Daisy has dinner following a quick walk, and reluctantly allows her owner to eat dinner before they take a longer walk and play ball. Daisy’s owner says “it’s a good life for both of us.” (09/12)

Tucker has a number of hobbies when not on duty; he visits doggie friends in the neighborhood, enjoys walks with family friends and neighbors, and loves to visit his human grandparents. Tucker is in good health for an older guy. He takes medication for arthritis and underactive thyroid, but it doesn’t slow him one bit! (07/12)
Doyle was adopted by his LRR family in July 2011. Have you ever seen a 10-year-old puppy? That’s Doyle. He’s in great health and doesn’t show his age at all. An early riser who eats breakfast at 5:30 a.m., Doyle spends his days napping and watching the neighborhood from a window. If there is an opportunity, he might do a little counter surfing.

Doyle also enjoys retrieving, watching TV, and helping his owners evaluate other Labbies for placement through LRR. (04/12)
Elway was adopted by his LRR family in November 2007. Elway is a very energetic senior Labbie and he makes his owner laugh every single day. He is still very energetic, despite some hip problems. But that doesn’t stop him from chasing tennis balls, swimming in the creek, or trotting along during his walks. Elway’s day starts early and he gets walks in the morning and before dinner. He recently began eating senior dog food and he loves it! Weekends are for special outings, like swimming or playing fetch. (04/12)

She helps Mom open the hen house and feed the chickens. Abby’s next job is to chase squirrels, chipmunks and field mice from the yard; her world has plenty of animals! Mom works from home and Abby keeps her company, while making sure that the rest of the pack behaves. In the evening, everyone watches TV, eats popcorn, and takes long walks. Weekends are special for Abby, because that’s when her best friend, a beagle, comes to visit. They chase each other, her brothers, and neighborhood critters until they drop with exhaustion! (02/12)

Toby was adopted by her LRR family in August 2006. He moves a little slower these days, but still loves to chase tennis balls and romp in the yard. His day starts with breakfast and playtime outside with his doggie siblings, Cody and Eva. He greets everyone who walks by on the trail next to his yard. When his human siblings are ready for school, he gets a few more minutes in the yard. After goodbye kisses, Toby climbs into his lounger, where he naps and watches squirrels. Every Wednesday, Toby goes to doggie daycare for a day of playing with doggie friends. At night, Toby naps on one of the many dog beds scattered throughout the house. Even all those dog beds don’t stop him from trying to sneak into bed with Mom and Dad! (01/12)
Macy was adopted by her LRR family in February 2009. Her day revolves around her family. She awakens early, along with her owner and Labbie sister, Amber. After a trip outside that includes chasing away birds and squirrels, Macy eats breakfast, then helps her human brothers and sister prepare for school. They give her a quick walk outside before departing. When the family returns from school and work, Macy eagerly greets them with much happy barking. Then it is outside for a run. After dinner, Macy loves just being with her family. She might remove the stuffing from a chew toy and sometimes sneaks into her human sister’s bedroom to “borrow” a stuffed critter or 2. (01/12)
Champ was adopted by his LRR family in 2005; he is now 7 years old, but don’t tell! He thinks he’s a puppy and acts like one! Adopted at 18 months, Champ has been the reigning champion at his house for 6 years. In excellent health, he looks forward to breakfast every morning. Champ then plays, naps, plays, and has a snack or two. He greets his owners at the door every day with a big smile. Evenings are spent with the family. After such an active day, Champ looks forward to an early bedtime. On weekends, though, Champ is the family alarm clock. He wakes his owners in time for breakfast by putting his cold nose on a face!

IN MEMORY OF REESE. SHE CROSSED THE RAINBOW BRIDGE IN MARCH 2013, AT THE AGE OF 11. Reese was adopted by her LRR family in October 2003. She’s a little slower and stiffer, but Reese can still chase the bunnies, squirrels and deer out of her yard. The critters think she is a fierce Labbie, but she really is a sweet girl who loves belly rubs and cuddles. Her day begins when she awakens in her human brother’s bed. She patrols the house to make sure that nothing out of the ordinary happened overnight. After breakfast, she retires to the sofa, where she sunbathes and naps. In between snoozes, she checks out the house again, fits in yard patrol (gotta get those rabbits and squirrels!) and reminds her humans that she needs snacks. (08/11)
