Today, HH and I traveled through Sac and Fox country and then the Osage Nation all the way to Skiatook, Oklahoma. Here’s why.
Our other Lab, Prancer, who is black, is about thirteen years old. We’ve been talking about pups for a year or so, and after I found Ganderhill Labs and saw Spice and Brewer’s babies, I knew one of their offspring should become part of our family. Luckily, after talking with Cindy, their owner, we met two lovely boys. She only wanted to keep one, so she let us choose, and here’s our boy.
He followed Bear all over the house, outdoors and then collapsed in the floor. After all, it was a long trip through non-hostile territory. He is about thirteen weeks old.
We’re enjoying his company, and his name is Tap, officially Ganderhill On Tap, in honor of his father, Brewer.
This post was done for Three for Thursday hosted by my dear friend, Cindy, from My Corner of Katy. Thanks Cindy.
He is a LOOKER and he looks like he will be a good boy and a good friend for you and your wonderful family.
Sharon, we certainly hope so. He’s a naughty boy too. Keeps digging up the new garden, but I knew he’d do that.
Dee, this was a perfect Three for Thursday post. Tap is a handsome young man and I hope to meet him someday. Until I do, give him lots of cuddles and scratches behind the ears or under the chin and tell him they’re from Auntie Cindy in Texas!
Cindy, I’m glad you liked it. I love this meme of yours.
How cute. What a neat name, too. Hope he is not a chewer. I had a black lab a long time ago and he practically ate the whole house. Not kidding, either. Drywall, steel belted radial tires, and kitchen cabinets. Bronson lived to be almost eighteen. Must have been his varied diet.
Oh, Donna, he’s definitely a chewer and a digger. Just part of the territory.
Sooo sweet. This post brought a smile to my face.
Thank you Patsi.
Aaawwwwww! What a sweet face! I know you will have a lot of fun with him. It is so funny how they just go to sleep where ever or when ever they get sleepy. It’s almost like they have a switch that has been turned on (or off).
Awww, so cute! I always have Labs- they have a good personality fit with me. I don’t know if I will ever find one as good as my last good old dog, though – he was one of a kind.
I love him, I love him!! Oh, that nose! And those dear eyes. What a joy.
He’s absolutely puppy adorable~gail
Oh my how cute. Good luck and I am sure he has found a good home.
What a cutie! Every time I see a new puppy like Tap, I get that urge to get another one…but we’ve only recently passed through the chewing the carpet and “accident” stage, so I think I might wait awhile:) Enjoy every moment with your new addition!
He’s adorable. My son just adopted a chocolate lab and he’s a few months old now and so sweet and lovable — and energetic! Hope you all have a ball with him.
Thanks Diana, we think he’s pretty special.

Oh be still my heart. I had a lab for 15 years. That face. Those ears. That tail. That spirit. Love at first sight no doubt. What a handsome boy you have there. It almost makes me want a puppy. Almost I say. I don’t have the energy for a lab any more. Ha… Tap will keep Prancer young for a few more years. Prancer will teach Tap to be a good boy.
Lisa, we’ve had Labs for the last twenty years. Love their temperament with children and smart disposition. They do take years to grow up though.
Oh what a face, Dee! Love at first sight. How sweet that he became Bear’s constant companion so quickly, you certainly chose well. A big hug and welcome to the new Red Dirt family member! 🙂
He is a beautiful creature, and I know we’ll love him. He’s also a handful, but puppies are.
