Dog Bit

Yesterday, we drove sixty miles in a driving rainstorm to a place that makes Goose Creek seem absolutely suburban. The point: chose one from among eleven yellow lab puppies. They are only four weeks old, and Virginia law requires them to be at least seven before they leave their siblings and momma-dog, so we couldn't pick one up yet; nor could we pick one out. They are too young yet to show a great deal of difference in coat color, size or personality. They were all about equally clumsy, cute and cocky; all were alternately ferocious, affectionate or simple sat for brief seconds wondering what this world was all about. There are seven males; we get second pick.
