When you look up the meaning of Labrador in the dictionary you will find Brandy. She is a lab through and through. Beautiful brown coat of fur and a tail that doesn’t stop wagging. Show her a tennis ball and she is in heaven. Chasing after it time and time again. Like most labs she is very food motivated so training is going to be a snap. Show her a treat and she will sit very nicely in front of you. She will sit and wait for you to throw the ball again for her and has even given a little yodel with the ball in her mouth from time to time. Brandy has a lot of energy and likes to be on the go. A hiker or very active outdoors person is at the top of Brandy’s wish list. She is a very loyal girl and makes friends wherever she goes. She can pull a bit on her walks so she will need a person who is able to handle a strong girl and show her the proper way. You will not be bored with this girl in your life. Brandy is an excellent swimmer and loves the water. As long as you are involved she is up for anything and is just a happy goofy lab.

During Arizona’s hot summer months hiking is still possible, but experts agree that early morning is the time to be on the trails. “At night the sun has baked on the asphalt all day long and as the sun goes down the asphalt releases that heat,” said Elizabeth Smith, park ranger at South Mountain Park. “Even though the sun is down and you may not have direct sun on you, it’s still hot out. In the morning it’s 80 degrees. I would suggest looking at what the temperature is throughout the day before you make your plans.”
