Five days from now the boys and I will be picking up our male Chocolate Lab puppy, pretty exciting. At the moment he's 7 weeks and 2 days old, here's a photo our breeder took today.

Strider on task

We've named him Strider, an idea that came from a discussion with the boys. If you are a Lord of The Rings fan you will recognize why it's a great name - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aragorn.

The breeder is located in Quesnel, which is approx 12hrs from Rossland. I've decided to make it a four day road trip, breaking it down into approx 6hr driving chunks, not sure of all the details yet, I'll figure it out along the way.

So what's in it for the boys? They will get to meet Strider's parents and littermates, learn some more about Labs, see some more of the world, skip some school and maybe roast some marshmallows along the way. Two boys, a puppy and marshmallows... what can go wrong? ;-)
