He will be zoned out the first few days in his new home and the little terror will wake up.hehehe
Start reading lots and if its your first dog read more.

I don't really have much advice besides stock up on sleep and get her onto a schedule as quick as you can. That was a lifesaver around here.

Mostly I just wanted to say that I love her name. My dad had a "shop dog" named Molson and I always loved her name.

Missabaldwin has a good suggestion too I forgot.
Put him on a schedule/routine, he will. Catch on rather quickly. When we first got Nubis we had his daily routine on a spreadsheet.
We kept the crate in the bedroom and sometimes he knew I was in there and sometimes not.
Nubis took to the crate right from the getgo and learned "sleep" real fast.
Nubis no longer sleeps in the crate and im glad thats over as i was never a fan of leaving him alone in the crate while out but safety paramounts a dead dobe possibly from an obstruction especially if they are a dobergoat.

Welcome from South of London, ON.

My advice - every pup is different, and the first few weeks can be tiring, with potty training and wanting to bite absolutely everything, every second.
But it can get better, quick enough...100% supervision and bonding, works very well in your favor.
- I just gone through this early stage, as my new girl is 13 weeks old now // have fun, their only little once

Nice bedding worked great for us, they need a "comfort" item, make sure she doesnt eat it.....

a vet told me years ago
that they really love to nest.

Recently gifted Gracie a Dura Nylabone, chicken. She was tasting on our custom trim, table and chair legs so new we needed something to occupy her time while in the home with us. Seems to do the trick with her, I know some may not approve of the Nylabone.

Good luck when you get her

Congrats! You will need a lot of sleep and a camera! Lol!
I would keep visitors away for the first two days to let him settle in and not have to deal with an overload of new people that's hat I did and it worked a treat.
Is your lab a boy or a girl?
Finley my boy was easy to housetrain. I just always took him out on a lead and said go quick and he has not had an accident inside since :-)
