Puppy walking

An adventure in looking after a puppy until it is old enough to be properly trained as a guide dog for the blind.

Getting ready to go out for our evening walk, while waiting for Peter, I bent down and pressed my forehead to Rockwell's and petted the sides of his head. He made that adorable noise down in his throat that I now think should be described as "snorgling", thanks to www.cuteoverload.com. Thanks to Peter's fast camera work, we have at least pictorial evidence of it. Look at how far back those ears are! And he never moved the whole time I was petting him. He may be a terror some times but the prominent note in his personality is "sweet".

Must be a Lab thing - both Charlie and I love to "snorgle" :-)

Sweet - he loves you! I do that to Sampson all the time but he never lets me get away without a good lick in the face.

Hi Laura,

Your Rockwell is a lucky pup. Snorgling is a pretty good word.

I confess I am not using "snorgle" in the classic CuteOverLoad sense, as in to snort and snuggle. But the sound of the word really matches the sound that Rockwell makes in the back of his throat. I've described this sound before as similar to the sound a human makes when trying to dislodge some post-nasal drip (eew) but much cuter. When Rockwell makes this sound and his ears are back and he is being SO sweet, all is forgiven.
