I'm glad to see the puppy found a good home. Labs are balls of energy. I grew up with a wonderful yellow lab and currently have an old black lab and a black lab-mix (she was a side of the road rescue so we really don't know what she is). They are great and loyal dogs, but do need some training. But I think that goes without saying for all animals. The cats are trained to use the littler box and not scratch the furniture. The dogs are house trained, leash-trained, not allowed in certain rooms or upstairs, and the young one even knows a few tricks. Maybe you should get her a robo-dog instead.
It won't do anything without her command.
