    Yeah, they're a handful alright. They are 6 1/2 weeks old already. We're having fun with them, except during the poop fests. lol

    Awesome!! Thats alot of puppies. LOTS of CRAP too. How hold before you place them? I was told 4 to 5 weeks at the youngest. 6 weeks or older is better, that is what our vet said. You prolly already know this, Labs are direct decendants from New Foundland dogs. We had 7 from our Newfie mix. They look so much like a Lab. We had to keet two. Our two poop all day long. Our bigger one was 30 lbs at 12 weeks old for his vet visit. From the looks of it, you should have some hundred lbs dogs. Have fun with them, they grow soooo fast.

    Thanks lildinkem! They are lots of fun. In PA they have to be 8 weeks for them to go to their new homes. So at least another week and a half of puppy pleasure.

    Our adult labs run around 80-85 lbs. They really shouldn't be in the 100 lb range, although I've seen dogs that big. They are typically obese or bred too large. We keep ours on good diets and they get lots of exercise on our farm, which keeps them in great shape.

    No laws here. I had all placed before their were 7 weeks old. 2 went to Joliet IL, two very nice young girls getting their daddy a B-Day present. They sent me pics, and one looks just like a Yellow LAB the other looks just like a long hair Black Newfie. I gues near Chicago, on craigslist people are getting $400 for large breed MIXES! Geesh, I was giving my away for $20 each.
    80 to 85 is the ideal weight. My friend Jim, had two. His Choc Lab, Beaver got up to hundred and he didn't handle the weight too well. As it turned out he had a Thyroid issue, and needed a pill everday for the rest of his life. After getting the pill and Jim regulating the diet he was back down to 90. He lived to 11 & 1/2 years. Jim had bought a Yellow girl, that was a very high energy dog. She had brothers that were huge. Like near 120 lbs. She was as smart as a stump. He would put her in his laundry room, she dug thru a solid core door. It was partica board underneath but still. lVery strong dog. Auggie is right near 85 lbs, Newfies throw that nice Chestnut Brown color. We were lucky to have him first. Doubt, we would have wanted anymore IF we didn't. So are ya keeping any? I know it has to be irresistable.
