Tinket is an hard one to summarize. The reason being that she holds SO MUCH value, but no monetary value whatsoever. Most breeders would have sold her many years ago because she can't breed. For a few years I didn’t see Tink as a “Official” Mother Pupper Lab because she would never produce any litters. She would simply be a loved pet. I was okay with that. But, I have since come to realize that Tink is not only an official Mother Pupper Lab, but she is the original Mother Pupper Lab, The OG!
I always knew that Tink is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle, lovable, patient, intelligent dog you will ever meet. She has such a need to please, and she doesn’t have a naughty bone in her body. What I didn’t realize is that she would teach these cherished traits to every Mother Pupper Lab that comes after her. I have added two new Labrador Retrievers since I brought Tink home, Olive and Mel. It amazes me every day to see them take on her personality. Tink sets the tone and teaches them everything. She is the leader and it's very clear. Definitely the dominant female, but in a very subtle way, you really have to look for it. I love this about her, she is not agressive at all, even when she's being dominate. It’s like watching a well choreographed ballet.
We were able to leave both our new puppies home alone, uncrated, when they were 5 months old. No dumping of garbage cans, no tearing up door frames, no chewing up couches. I absolutely Believe that they followed Tinks lead. She was my first Labrador, my first real dog as a serious Lab owner. I have learned so much since the day I brought her home. And as she matures,she is always showing me new lessons.
