I am the owner of a beautiful Yellow Lab we call Mickey. He is a pet store puppy, and some of you may have seen or read about his story. He is precious to me, but has many genetic problems. He is 5 years old now, and the perfect pet.
You can see his story and pictures here:

He's such a beautiful boy!!

We have two labs - one is a rescue (Duke), the other we adopted from a co-worker of mine (Duchess). Duchess also has a genetic condition, but she wasn't a mill puppy (she's 75%lab 25% other). She spent a week at Texas A&M receiving blood transfusions every other day. It took her six weeks to walk on her own. I completely understand what you're going through with Mickey, and he is very lucky to have a loving companion taking care of him! I hope he is able to recover from his lung condition - he'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Is Lucy as big as she looks? I can't tell if it's the picture, or if she's just a really big girl

We have had two. Lost the first one to lymphoma at age 7, and still miss him. Our second one has severe hip problems, but a high tolerance for pain and doesn't let it stop him. He's got a wonderful spirit. I can learn a lot from him, he's my inspiration on days when my old bones are aching and I feel like complaining.

Lucy and Mickey are beautiful! It's a great breed of dog, isn't it! (for all of you out there with other breeds, I know there are many wonderful non-labs, too!

I have two right now and may be adding a third. I've had dogs all my life (mostly Labs and Sheppards) with a couple of mutts thrown in and I personally think a Lab is the best all around dog. "LAB'S RULE"

Here's our newest addition WOODY!

Lucy is a very big girl. She is a little over weight in this picture...but if you ate a couple of loaves of bread a week you would be too, so we won't judge her for her counter surfing abilities. If she stands on her hind legs she is eye to eye with me, I'm 5' 11"...and her back comes up to mid thigh...I have very long legs as well...so she's big. She was however the runt of the litter...which is why I fell in love with her. We originally went to the breeder interested in one of her chocolate puppies (because I think your animal hair should match your wardrobe) but she was just so endearing I had to have her. I judged her right, her temperment is perfect and she has been my kids favorite toys from infancy to now. Her ideal weight is 95-100 lbs for her size, she was around 115 in this picture. She is now a very svelt 96 lbs...but that is because we have finally figured out how to secure the bread.

Default From big to small

We had a Lab - purebred - she was such a wonderful member of the family, an excellent companion and good sport to our first granddaughter. She was what is called a Chesapeake - such a rare colour. Unfotunately we had to put her down about 4 years ago and my hubby swore he would never go through that again - it broke our hearts as well know I'm sure. But along came our daughter's Shih Tzu, whose first litter yielded a beautiful, all black male. Well, we've got him and he is a wonderful little guy. I could go on but this site is about Labs.
