New Year's Resolution: Her resolution is to be more active, and try to get her owners to take her out on walks or take her to the park to throw balls around more often. She knows when her owners are ready to leave (when they are putting their coats and shoes on), so she just throws that sad puppy dog face to hopefully lure them into taking her with them on their adventures.


Name: Berryessa or Essa for short

Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever

Age: 1.5 years


Special Interests: Essa loves to play fetch. Tennis balls are her favorite, and she can fetch for hours if she wanted too.


She can never let a human out of her sight if they are around. She'll always be at someone's feet. If they aren't giving her the attention that she wants she'll whine and nudge them to pet her.


Essa knows sit, stay, fetch, shake, give me ten, and go to bed. The next trick she is learning, is to "drop-it" then eventually putting her toys away in her box.


How We Met: My boyfriend and I finally decided on the breed, gender and color of puppy we wanted after we had purchased our first condo. But after an endless, unsuccessful search for a female chocolate lab, we finally decided to pick-up a female yellow lab puppy. We had an appointment and everything. But the night before we were to pick up a yellow lab puppy, I came home from school and found a female chocolate lab puppy in our condo. =) She's been actively involved in our lives since.


Am I keeping my resolution?: I can do a mean puppy-dog face. =)
