Pierce was born on February 22, of 2010. We picked him up on April 9th, of 2010, and I couldn't be happier with my little boy.
Pierce was a graduation/birthday present for my fiance Chris. He had a yellow lab when he was younger, that had gotten hit by a car, and he hasn't forgotten that dog, to this day. He's always had a undying fondness for labs, and had been reluctant about getting a puppy, although we've talked about it numerous times.
I don't think he believed me when I told him I was getting him a puppy. It became a precious reality when I showed him the pictures that the breeder had posted for me on her website.
Our lives has been nothing but joy since we got little Pierce. He's a little over a year old now, and he's the happiest puppy, and really loves my father's dog, Bear, who is a Malamute and Bloodhound cross.
Chris isn't reluctant anymore, Pierce definately knows who mommy and daddy are. He's sweet, playful, and very active. He got the best mix of his mother, the calm, well-mannered one, and his father, the active, extremely playful one. He loves to play, loves attention, and he is by far the smartest dog I have ever had the honor of coming into contact with.
I really hop his breeder continues with her labs, because Pierce is the most precious thing in our life, and he is the most amazing little boy. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.
