    Virgo keeps telling me her ears are ringing and that people on the Chazboard must be wondering how she is so I thought I'd post an update for everyone. ;) Virgo is doing wonderful, her winter coat is growing in nicely and she hardly notices the cold anymore. In fact, she loves going outside! We have made one trip to the vet to remove a toenail that she ripped while escaping from the shop on a cold day. Nothing major, and Virgo handled it like a pro. She is on daily Gluco/Chondrotin for her leg and somedays I really think I see a difference. It is supposed to take 1-2 months before you see the full effects so it may be my imagination but I'm not sure.

    Things I have learned since Virgo arrived:
    - Food on the counters is not safe!
    - Getting into a closed garbage can is apparently easy for a dog...and even easier to teach other dogs to open. Its fun to teach your younger sister and then watch them into trouble.
    - Rolling in the snow is apparently a lot of fun.
    - 6:33am is wake up time...no matter what. This is the time that my alarm goes off after hittings snooze 3 times and I think Virgo is telling me enough is enough. She will poke me with her nose and whine until I finally roll out of bed.
    - Garage doors will not keep a dog indoors...they can ge scratched through.

    And now...the photos:

    The girls do a lot of this after a hard day of playing:

    Oh, I have a big smile on my face! Thanks so much for updating us on Virgo and what a great teacher she has been for Chevy! It's so nice to see a dog so happy in it's new home and environment.

    Great pics! I'm glad Virgo is settling in well.

    And it turns out she's a great teacher of the arts as well. :D

    I am so glad she is fitting in, and hopefully Chevy will teach Virgo a few NICE tricks instead of all the naughty teaching going on! :rofl1:

    I think it's adorable that you and your parents have matching dogs! This picture made me smile :D

    Thanks everyone! I may be a bit bias but I think my 2 girls are pretty good looking myself. ;) We used to get a lot of compliments on Chevy and now people are saying the same about Virgo. We are so glad she has settled in so nicely. I definately inherited the "love of labs" from my parents! Growing up we only had labs on our farm and I've grown to really love the breed.

    ACooper - I'm very surprised I got them all sitting there long enough to get that shot. Trying to get 4 labs, 2 of which are under 2 years of age (both yellows) to sit still is nearly impossible!!

    LOL...I have no doubt about that!!

    They look great, glad Virgo is doing well, and clearly feeling at home since she's back to her tricks. Maybe Chevy can teach her some.

    Oh, it's so great to see our grrrrl :) One look at pics of Chevy told me all I needed to know about how well Virgo was going to be taken care of. Having all that space to run and romp daily is showing. She's always been a beautiful dog and she is obviously thriving in her forever home :)

    Thank you SO much.
