My Black Lab Onyx

  • #1
Like so many others, I took a great number of photographs of my dogs--at the beach, especially--I have Labradors, but also in my own backyard. I'm going to focus on Onyx tonight. Onyx is the son of my last Lab, also named Onyx. He is a rambunctious and playful boy who is nearly as full of himself now at the age of 8, as he was as a puppy

Onyx has a mind of his own and unless I make him precede me out the door, he has my 6 at all times entering or exiting the house. He insists on walking me--and he can't seem to get out the door on his own but has to supervise me going out before him. He is a water-dog and I think at times he can walk on water--I've seen him do it too often to believe I'm mistaken

Even as a puppy he was fascinated with the hose, splashing water and the birdbath-pond I created in my front yard--what a soggy doggie! In the last photo shown here, he slipped on a floating banana peel--the look of surprise on his face cracks me up!

Excellent story and photos David! I love seeing Onyx in this type of environment. It looks like he's having the time of his life!

Being home all the time, Onyx and the rest of the crew tirelessly train me--it makes them very happy dogs to get their way so often, lol
