Owner: Larry Gralla
Location: Reno, Nev.
Dogs' Names: Coffee Bean and Cinna-Bun
Ages: 1 and 7
Breeds: English Labradors
Star Quality: They cuddle up next to my wife, making my spot in bed very warm, once I convince them to go to their own beds.
Favorite Getaway: They love going to our cabin at Lake Tahoe, playing in the snow or the forest, and helping me select a bottle of wine.
Forgivable Flaws: Cinna-Bun is a “counter cruiser”—anything up there is fair game, and also steals shoes. His brother Bean’s favorite activity is telling on him!
Background Story: All of our Labs, over time, have been named after foods … Cinna-Bun, a fox-red Lab; Coffee Bean, a jet-black; Custard Mustard (you must have two names to yell at them), a yellow; Creme Brûlée, or CB for short, a yellow; Cadbury Chocolate Chip, a chocolate … duh; Chocolate Mousse, another chocolate.
