Vote for Enzo

Meet Enzo.


Enzo is a 3 year old chocolate Labradork. She loves life, as all Labradors do, and goes about each and every day with such enthusiasm that it never fails to make me smile. Work five days a week? Absolutely!! She gets up every day whether it’s five in the morning or noon, ready to take on whatever life throws at her.


We always thought that she’d settle down a bit when she hit two and a half to three, start calming down, stop making wookie noises at old ladys in Petsmart, the googoo eyes at little boys with sticky fingers, and quit dancing so violently when someone comes over to say “Hi”.


So far though, she hasn’t recieved her brain in the mail, and I’m considering writing the manufacturer, because it doesn’t seem like she’ll EVER calm herself down. She goes to work with me four to five days a week, 5 to 7 hours at a time, and will still come home and run laps around the yard.


She is my shadow, and it’s hard to get far enough away from her to take a good picture, unless, of course, she decides another lap around the yard would be fun. We actually named her Enzo, after Enzo Ferrari, because of the dirt track she put in around our yard. Perfect twists and turns, and straightaways for her to put on the afterburners and leave the other three dogs in the dust. She perpetually wears a crazy wild eyed look on her face that also makes getting family Christmas pictures a bit of a problem.

Oh my! That’s my 11 year old choco when she was that age! She looked exactly like that….and she began to slow down at about 9…..Sorry. You really would miss that energy if it were gone, it’s such a part of their personality! Thanks for sharing Enzo.

I have been the proud owner of a black lab since I was 9 years old, well two of them, but only together for a few short years! My first lab did not slow down until 9-10 years old when she developed a thyroid issue. That didn’t slow her down very much though! My current lab is nearly 10 years old and has still not started to slow down!
