Here is Uly, just a few days old. He is an English-bred Labrador and was born in May 2010, one of a litter of just two dogs and one bitch. He is the first dog I have had since childhood. I didn't really choose him, as such, he kind of 'came' to me (as dogs often do).
Uly has a long pedigree, his father was a field trial champion before the age of three. His grandfather, on his mother's side, was a police 'sniffer' dog. This working background, I believe we will see, will come very much into play as Uly grows older and I start to learn to train him.
