I had a lab when I was younger. They are amazing dogs! When you first get them as babies and when they start that awkward growing stage where their paws are bigger than them... those are the two times when labs really turn the adorable sparkly sparkle up to the max, and after that they turn into absolutely beautiful creatures. The metamorphosis from silly and cute to clever and statuesque is really a wonderful experience to watch; they really are like butterflies in that sense... minus the cocoon--oh, yeah, and minus the fact that you can cuddle them and they lick.
It looks like you're baby isn't going to be an exception. He's already got the *sparkle*I'm soooo cute*sparkle* vibes mastered.
