Allow me to introduce Alissa.
Among other things, her name means, “Great happiness.”
She is almost 16 weeks of age now and already has a number of commands under her belt.
She is a very sunny little girl with that sweet Labrador demeaner. Even when she is being a bit of a dickens, she is cute.
I think she’ll be a big girl: She was 18 pounds at 10 weeks of age and has doubled in size since then. Her vet says he thinks she’ll be somewhere in the 60-70 pound range.
It is hard for me to imagine that she’ll ever be anything other than a puppy.
