Last time I saw Mia, she was a little puppy, and she really wasn't very much fun. In fact, spending time with her was quite painful because she kept trying to chomp down on my ears and lips with her VERY sharp puppy teeth. But she has thankfully outgrown the puppy stage and is interested in playing something other than the bite-and-terrorize-Garth game. Now I can romp and play with her like she's a grown-up lab!
|Mia kept chasing me because I had the coveted deflated ball.|
|She sure has grown up since the last time I saw her.|
|Mia still has much to learn.|
Here I'm trying to teach her the eagerly-awaiting-the-ball look.
|She doesn't seem to be paying close attention.|

He sure had us confused -- especially when the ball came down
on the roof and rolled off the other side and no one could find it.
|Eagerly awaiting the ball.|
|Still eagerly awaiting.|

|Mia got the deflated ball.|
|She has way more energy than I do.|
|She sure runs like a puppy.|
