Chocolate Lab Puppy Joins OtterTail Labradors
Introducing our wonderful new addition!! I have not posted in a while and she is why. I am thrilled to announce the arrival of Lobuff OtterTail Noble Nissa to our happy OtterTail Labrador home. Thank you Lisa Weiss for giving me the opportunity to have such a wonderful girl! Nissa was born on the 20th anniversary of my own very first litter, making her special indeed. My last litter was nearly 11 years ago, so this new Lab puppy brings great joy. It is also very nice to have a chocolate Labrador Retriever in our family again. My very first Lab (first purebred dog) was a chocolate Lab named Holly - she changed my life and was the instigator of all the rest of my involvement with Labs, inclucing my OtterTail Lab Art. Nissa is a beautiful girl who's name means "a sign", which is in keeping with her special birth date. It is also the name of a character from Dr. Who back in the 1980's who was pretty, sweet and very smart. As a side note for Whovarians - I have also had a Leela and a Tegan - 2 very wonderful yellow Lab girls! And my Leela was just as gung-ho as the doctor's!! I will surely have to write about both of them in the future. They are over Rainbow Bridge now, but many fond memories remain. Check back to see my wonderful Nissa as she grows!
