Mysty came to Barb around the same time as Bliss and Spirit came to me - and we've often compared notes on the similarities in Labrador personalities.
The three pups, now four years old, are very much the same in their temperament - wonderfully inquisitive, outgoing and often rowdy. As they've begun to mature - as much as Labs ever do - they have settled down a bit, listen to their people more often, come when they are called and always sit for a treat. But it doesn't take much when they are around water particularly - their natural element - to have them burst into joyous barking and dashing into a lake river or pond to retrieve a stick, a ball or a toy or chase a duck or beaver.
Mysty has brought a lot of joy and laughter to Barb and her family, she has created a niche in everyone's heart who knows her. Smart and loving - she represents the best of the breed.
