We dog sat Marley last year. For almost 2 weeks she lived with us. While here I just couldn't believe how well she fit with our little family. The other 2 dogs had no issue with her whatsoever. This past November her owner called and asked if we would take her to be ours. Matt and I talked a lot about it because we weren't in the market for a new dog. I have never even thought of myself as a lab owner. They are pretty crazy dogs but this one wasn't. It was my husband who finally said yes because he REALLY liked her. Marley's old owner decided at that time last November that she couldn't give her up and I can totally understand that because this is one great dog. This past Tuesday though I got a call from her again and this time she made her decision and was ready to live with it. Her father brought the dog to us that night. I will say it again, this is one great dog!


When I get on the floor she immediately comes by me to get some love. How I wish that bookshelf wasn't in this picture. This big girl is one of us now :)

Oh my! SOOOO cute. I love her and I love your capture. That is really nice of you to take her she has a loving family :)

I'm in love...with both your dog and the photo! And, I like that the bookshelf is in the picture; it adds interest. She's a gorgeous lab...and any lab we've ever had or that I've known hasn't been 'crazy' at all! They're pretty much known for being laid back food lovin' couch potatoes that are up for cuddles at any time :D I'm happy you took her in...your family will gain so much from being 'her people'!

That is so awesome, I just love dogs and grew up with them. I had a yellow lab named Abbey who was like my shadow. We currently don't have a dog but once we get a new home with a yard we can fence we are definitely getting one.

Your photo's of her are amazing!

She is beautiful and looks so very sweet! I actually like the bookshelf in the photo - I love books and dogs, so why not pair them? :)

btw, your children in your header? Gorgeous!

She's beautiful. You are a lucky family to have her. I love the photos and the bookcase doesn't bother me at all!
