Meet Marley







This is Marley!
(Also known as Marleyboo, Boo and MarleyBob :)
In the first two pictures he is with one of his sisters, Miley. Half of the litter was blonde like Marley and the other half of the litter was black like Miley.
He is a Brittador (or Labany). He is an F1 hybrid dog, half Labrador Retriever and half Brittany Spaniel.
He was born May 21, 2009, so he is now 8 months old.
He weighs approximately 60 lbs. I believe he still has a little growing to do.
He has the long ears and white freckled snout like his Brittany mother.
He has blonde short hair, is lean and extremely strong thanks to his Labrador father.
Both breeds in his lineage are bird hunters and are both extremely active breeds.
He is the sweetest puppy and my very best little buddy.
He has already become very protective of me.
He feels so grown up when he gives his best and deepest barks when someone knocks on the door. He will alert me by running back and forth to the door barking. I always give him a good petting and tell him he is such a good boy. All along he is wagging his tail boasting of his good job.
I think the biggest threat from Marley is that it would be a good idea to wear a raincoat when visiting....he will lick you to death!
So, now you have met Marley.
Please stop in and say hello to my sweet puppy.

When I am reincarnated as a Caledonian Haggishound, I'd like you to be my owner.

Hi Marley! You take care of Lee Ann for us, or there'll be hell to pay!

I say!

Marley looks as if he knows he has landed on his feet. Lovely dog! Name similar to my own Farley-dog, friend of Casper-babe.

Hope you are well.

I got a Labany almost a year ago and it is the best dog ever, other than likes to chew, but it is so smart and eager to please would recommend this dog for anyone except maybe if you live in an apartment because they have a lot of energy!!!!!

Lee Ann said...

Hey Dickey59, I know what you mean about the energy they have. I do live in an apartment, thankfully on ground level. I let him run around as hard as he wants when I cannot be out walking him. He has an imaginary track that he runs (same path everyday) :)
He is a GREAT dog, so sweet, loyal, protective and so very strong already (9 mos. old). Ahhh yes, the chewing! At what age does that stop? :)
