Now living happily in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Merriam and her brother Melvern were found abandoned on an Indian Reservation in Kansas. Other than being cold and hungry, both pups seemed to be OK and just in need of the basics: food, shelter, love. They are supremely grateful for all of it and are fun-loving, silly, clumsy Lab puppies that have no bad ideas or preconceived notions. Merriam loves playing all day and throws big celebrations when people come to visit. Now that she is becoming a big girl, we will have to break it to her that she is neither a baby nor a lap dog. She does enjoy being carted around and well, we can still manage it somewhat, so we'll wait just a bit longer before we treat her like a tween.
