Puppy Clara

So we got this puppy ~ 4 months ago, she is from Puppy Breath Rescue in Grand Haven,
said to be a Black Lab/ Terrier mix.  I just thought I would share some pictures of Clara as she grows. 

Keep your eyes on the changes in her ears.  I'm not saying I don't like her ears, even though I have made comments about using super glue to hold them down. Of course I would never do that, you know. Just watch the Labrador ears turn into some sort of Terrier ears. 

Also at 6 months old she weighs only 20 pounds.  And her bark sounds a bit like a Chihuahua. All and all she is a pretty good pup.

This is Clara, just 4 days after we adopted her, on an adventure to Crockery Creek Open Space in Ottawa County.  (Notice the Lab like ears)  She is ~9 weeks old here.

 
 
By 12 weeks old she has found the garden, first she smells the flowers then tastes the flowers.

Now at 14 weeks of age she has gone all Black Seal on us.

Feeling very at home napping on the sofa. Hard to see her ears in this picture.

 
 

She enjoyed the garden, digging up onions and potatoes, but she doesn't have one green thumb.
What do you think?...Is that the Terrier coming out in those ears?


She is pretty sure now that this is her home and we are her people, oh but notice those ears inching higher up in the air.

          Socializing on the Grand Haven pier.

 Clara today, almost 6 months old and look at those ears!!    Aw, but isn't she kind of cute?

Thanks Dave, those ears are okay, she is still a handful, maybe I should have gotten an older dog.
I'll probably make it through her puppyhood, especially with my daughter's help.
Thanks for stopping by.

Clara is obviously a plant lover. It's going to be fun having her on woodland hikes when she calms down a bit. I don't really know enough about dogs to know what breed her ears point to, but she doesn't look too much like a lab now.

New Hampshire Gardener, Clara does like digging in the garden, that will be a problem next year when the plants are just coming up.
She has certainly changed in looks over the last few months. Weighing only 20 pounds isn't really a bad thing, since I can pick her up if need be.
The newest challenge is Clara and the Christmas tree.
Thanks for stopping by Allen. My next post will be about nature and not Clara.
