Keely is a Fox Red purebred Labrador Retriever. Â She is three years old and we got her when she was a 9 week old puppy. Ranger is a Boxer and Wheaten Terrier mix. Â We got him just before his 8th week.
I was always a cat person and we got Duke (over the rainbow bridge) when the youngest kidlets were three and six-ish? He was from a lab rescue and was almost two when we got him. Â He was a big loving guy. Â It was five months after he crossed the rainbow bridge when we went for a drive to “look” at the puppies at the breeder. Â Well we were looking a little chocolate brown runt who was really cute. Â Then the breeder showed us Keely and her twin. Â The twin just lay at our feet getting belly rubs and Keely ran around us, then into the electrified fenced area to say hi to her mom and dad and back around us in what we would later describe as her “crazy puppy” antics. Â We fell in love with her pink nose and green eyes, she’s what they call a “Dudley” lab as she doesn’t have the black nose and Fox red or red labs are really a “yellow” as per the CKC and AKC.
Then Ranger…well Ranger came to us via my son’s co-worker whose boxer made nice with his girlfriend’s rescued Wheaten Terrier. Â The litter of pups was such a mix. Â Ranger’s twin was the one that was claimed by the owners and we were looking at a fawn but something about Ranger caught my hubby’s eye. Â Well we got Ranger or put a deposit on him and waited patiently for him to grow up more. Â My hubby likes to say we are the only people he knows that got a puppy for their dog for a 1st birthday present and NO I was not allowed to continue.
Today Keely and Ranger have become a bonded pair. Â You can’t take one anywhere without the other because they both will cry without the other. Â They have their own Instagram page at keelyandranger
I love these two so much.
