Star #3 & Comet

Yellow Labrador Retriever

 
Medium  |  Female

Annandale, VA

 

Star is a 7-year-old spayed fox red female. Comet is a 7-year-old spayed spayed fox red female. Star and Comet are bonded and they need to be adopted together. Star is a very sweet girl and is a little more timid in new situations and will stand behind Comet if she feels insecure. They are house trained and don't need to be crated. Star and Comet need to go to a home with a fenced in yard as they doesn't like to do their business on leash. Star and Comet know the commands sit, come here, and go lay down. They are good with other dogs. They are very calm, don't jump and love attention. They love to cuddle up next to you on the couch. Star and Comet are great car riders, they curled up and fell asleep on the way to the vet. They should go to a home with no cats. Star and Comet are approved for kids 5 and up. They both need to go to a home with a fenced in yard. Foster family reports: Star and Comet are a pretty pair of bonded females looking for love. Star is the one with the white streak on her nose and Comet is the leader of the pair. They are very sweet, quiet, mellow and well-mannered. These girls are house trained and have no need for crates. Both are extremely gentle and great with young kids and they are APPROVED FOR KIDS 5+. They enjoy exploring the backyard, but don’t really understand what to do with tennis balls and squeaky toys just yet, but we are working on it. They love long walks and do very well walking on a leash. Mostly they just want to snuggle and relax with their humans. Star is the first to jump up on the couch or bed and snuggle up against you. Comet will follow you around the house and plop her head in your lap once you sit down. The girls are doing great at mealtime, very relaxed on car rides, and sleep peacefully in the playroom with our resident dog. Star prefers to sleep on the couch with a comfy blanket, and Comet loves to sleep in her dog bed on the floor. They definitely enjoy each others company, as they rarely leave each others side. When one gets up to investigate something, the other usually follows close behind. Yesterday we learned that Star and Comet do have a playful side! Initially they had very little interest in tennis balls, but yesterday Comet grabbed a ball and went sprinting in circles like a lightning bolt around the yard, with Star following close behind. After a few laps around the yard, they slurped up some water headed inside for a snuggle session. These love bugs are always looking for affection, and although they can be a little shy, they will not hesitate to let you know they would like more petting by giving you a gentle nudge. Star gave a few kisses for the first time today and we've noticed that both are starting to wag their tails now when we approach them. These girls are truly double the love, double the joy. These girls will bring an endless amount of love and happiness into your home. Update: Check out the video of Comet and Star playing in the yard! Update: After one week at their foster home Comet and Star's foster humans continue to learn more about their true personalities and watch them learn from each other. Both dogs are good eaters and Star always finishes first. The girls had their first bath this weekend and their coats look shiny and beautiful. Comet enjoyed the bathtub, but Star wasn't a big fan. After watching her sister Star relax with the humans on the couch for the past week, Comet, a bit bashful at times, decided to try it too. She has now discovered the true joy of lounging on the couch in a nice warm lap, and will sometimes literally sit on your lap. After watching Comet chase tennis balls all over the backyard, Star has learned to do the same and is no longer spooked by the 'squeak' of the ball, but now sits and happily chews on it so it will squeak again and again. They love being with the family, and sometimes become our shadow as we move about the house, but they're also happy to hang out on the couch with the kids, or in the kitchen with the resident dog. They have been gentle and loving with the kids, and welcoming to all house guests that have come by to visit. Overall, snuggling remains their favorite activity and the humans have resorted to calling them the 'love hounds' because that seems to be all they need to be happy. Update: Is there anything better than a dog that waits by the door and smothers you with snuggles the minute you get home? Is gentle and loving with young children and house guests? Is happily bursting with energy for ball chasing in the yard, yet relaxed and well-mannered in the house? A dog that loves long walks and cuddling on the couch? YES, there is something better!! ALL OF THAT TIMES TWO!!!! Bonded 7 year old ladies, Star and Comet are ready to find their forever family to love. Approved for kids 5 and up! Fenced yard and no kitty cats please. Star weighs 52 pounds and Comet weighs 53 pounds and are up to date on shots. These dogs are approved for homes with adults and/or kids ages 5 and up.
