When I arrived at Edenshot Labradors amazing plot, Angela was already outside with all eight puppies. One came running over to me and started chewing my shoes. (it had a yellow collar) I had forgotten how sharp their little teeth are. Then one came over and started biting the back of my ankle. Note to self, I should have worn my muck boots! I thought perhaps yellow collar may be the one because he ran up to me first. I kept a good eye on him.
Angela put the females back in their stable bed and between the two of us we carried two pups each into the house out of the rain. They were given treats and I knelt on the floor with them, trying to get a sign that one was to be mine. Geoff recommended interacting and playing with them, I did and yellow collar and purple collar came and sat on my knee playing. I tapped my chest and gestured for one to come closer and purple collar was determined to get the closest to me. I then thought perhaps purple collar was to be mine. Angela told me at that point that it was purple collar that had pooped on me when I first met them.
I knew it was a choice between purple and yellow collar but which one? Angela gave them a raw bone from the butchers and purple collar bounded into the group of puppies, grabbed it and tottled off with this huge bone all to himself under the table. None of the others tried to take it back from him. I knew this was to be my puppy. He made me laugh. He was confident and mischievous.
He comes to his new home in a few weeks. 🤗 Wish me luck! Do you think he looks mischievous or like an angel?! Maybe he will be like me! 😇
