Play Date with Darby and Bo

Sure he's a little bit older and sixty pounds heavier, but that doesn't mean they can't have a good time together. And too we've discovered that Darby has no problem attempting to bully a creature three times her size, that is until Bo gets fed up with her pestering him and tries to smush her with his giant paws. But she's resilient and doesn't get the message, ever.  

Unfortunately, I couldn't get any shots of them together, since they were usually moving too quickly at that point. So here they are, individually, sometimes-friends and sometimes-sparring-partners.

Bo tends to slobber to an extreme degree when he gets excited

Darby's devilish grin appropriately reflects her behavior
If you have come to love Darby like we have over the last several months, you can visit the gallery dedicated to her on my website, exhibiting all the photos and videos that have accumulated since we first laid eyes on her and were smitten at four weeks old, here.


  1. Cute! We had a British black lab growing up named Duke, he looked very similar to Bo. Found your blog by checking out your review of the Okteka camera grip. Thanks for the review, purchased it earlier today.
    So glad I found your blog – beautiful work!

    1. Thanks for your kind words. I hope you enjoy your new gear.
