Oops, posted before intoducing myself

Once again we have a dog.
We have been Husky owners (or they have owned us!) for about 29 or 30 years. About 5 yrs ago our last Husky went to my retired, dog loving parents, who's dog passed away and found themselves pretty lonely. Our Husky, Kenai, wasn't getting the attention we thought she should be getting with my wife back in college and the kids moved, so we thought this was the best choice for the dog. Now Kenai gets constant attention from two people who used to show Collies and know how to love on their dogs. Kenai is getting old and is showing some signs that age is creeping up on her. What a fantastic dog she is - she's like a mother hen.


Our new addition belongs to our daughter, which is how I found this forum. I think I'll be needing some advice from time to time. She is a Black Lab from a shelter. Molly is about a year old and has had no training whatsoever. She will be a work in progress for a while. She is very sensitive and doesn't like to disappoint. When we get a firm voice with her she wants to listen and will follow us everywhere and sit at our feet looking up at whoever it was that scolded her. Then, once that person shows any affection towards her at all, she wants to snuggle up to them afterwards - almost overwhelmingly so. Hugs seem to be her favorite thing.
I think the hardest part is going to be potty training her, she just doesn't have the slightest clue.
