A friend of mine's in-law's neighbor (seriously) had a litter of 9 puppies unexpectedly that he needed to find homes for. So... we're suckers, and decided to adopt this little guy!
I should point out that he is not really a little guy anymore - he is growing like a weed! He is a lab mixed with... something! All of the other puppies are black, and most of them look more like golden retrievers, maybe? Derby is definitely very lab-like.
It's tough being a puppy and trying to stay cool!
Don't let this sweet sleeping face fool you! When he's awake, he's a crazy man!
My mom is convinced that he is going to be gigantic, and so she keeps comparing him to Clifford the Big Red Dog. She even found him a Clifford toy!
He's very sweet, and follows us everywhere. He's done a great job with house training, likes to meet new people, and has fun playing with other dogs. Even though his crazy puppy-ness (ie: biting my feet constantly) is driving he crazy, I think he's a keeper!!
