Ya, that's odd for such a large dog to have 1 puppy. I'd definitly get her checked out.

And I want pics of squishy puppy face

Wow, Allen! Quite a surprise indeed. You're a good doggie daddy to bring them in. Pictures please, too.

I second Katie's message - you're a good guy for bringing them in. Our recently departed dogs also lived outside, but it is always warm here and we live outside most of the time as well. Wish we had that little puppy! We need one....

Yes, as long as they have shelter and fresh water. Our black lab didn't mind cold weather at all. In fact, when we tried to put straw in his house, he pulled it out. He grew an extra thick winter coat, and when he started shedding in the spring, it came out in big patches.
We always supplemented our outdoor dogs diet in cold weather with things like raw eggs, bacon grease, fat trimmings from meat...and did they ever love gravy!

Congrats on your furry new baby. Now you are a surrogate Dad, as well as Father to your own. Are you gonna teach her to chase her tail? You know that you have to teach by example.

Ok, I'll be good. Really, I congratulate you on the new arrival. Lab/pit-bull. Both are great people dogs, strong and athletic. And both need to be introduced to many people at a young age. And both can be protective of their families. Enjoy.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
