Say hello to Vienna!

Vienna smiles for the camera as she sits on the grass.

Even though we still have Reyna, we were asked to take our new pup early because GDB has several older pups in the kennel who need homes. So yesterday we went up to Guide Dogs and picked up our new bundle of fur! Vienna was born June 9, 2010 and she is a David and Zante pup. She is a yellow lab.

Tyler takes Vienna for her first walk in the kennels at GDB.  Not bad, huh?

So far she is a sweet and peaceful pup. She was really good on the ride home from Guide Dogs, in fact she fell asleep in my arms. She has been good in her crate and ex-pen, and she slept through the night! She walks nicely on leash and just has a sweet and sensitive personality. The only problem we are having with her so far is that she will not eat. She has no interest in food at all. She has not eaten in 24 hours, so it is a bit concerning. Hopefully her lab switch will turn on and she will realize that she LOVES food. She is probably just stressed from the change in her environment so hopefully she will adjust soon. But I have to tell you I have never had a lab puppy that won’t eat, so this is totally new to me. Right now she is asleep at my feet, and she pretty much slept all day today so I don’t have much to blog about. Maybe tomorrow will be more eventful. We are so pleased we got such a wonderful puppy!

Vienna sits in the flowers.
